Be a Gracious Guest: Thanksgiving Hostess Gifts

With Halloween squarely behind us it is now time to run headlong into the greatest of fall holidays, Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving around this house is a Very Big Deal. It is not uncommon for us to host upwards of 25 people on any given year. The island in the kitchen is piled high with platters and platters of food. Traditional fare turned slightly southern (fried turkey and platters of barbecue anyone?) sits next to an endless array of side dishes and condiments.

I am blessed with a large set of flatware and some coordinating serving sets, but I am forever borrowing a few extra serving spoons here and in need of yet another meat fork there. Hostessing requires TOOLS, ya’ll.

For those of you not hosting your own Thanksgiving meal at home that have been graciously invited over to join another group of family or friends, consider bringing a hostess gift of an interesting serving set. For those that like to entertain you can NEVER have enough of these flatware jewels and for the price of a decent bottle of wine you can give a gift that will last and be endlessly useful for the hostess.

Here are a few other great options from Pottery Barn:

Pottery Barn Vintage Wood Serving Set
Pottery Barn Chancellor Serving Set

Any of these would be welcomed by a hostess and prove you to be a thoughtful guest with impeccable taste. You just may get an extra piece of Chocolate Toffee Pecan Pie.

Sound good? That recipe is coming soon.

    I love this idea! Thinking of incorporating a pie plate and server with my Bourbon Pecan-Pumpkin Butter Pie. Leave the plate & server with the hostess.
