Modern Thanksgiving: Fall Favors & Treats

Modern Thanksgiving: Fall Favors & Treats

In continuing our “fall-wedding-inspired Thanksgiving” series, this next post features clever fall favor & treat ideas from a beautiful, rustic-chic autumn reception.

Modern Thanksgiving: Fall Favors & Treats

Style Steal tips for your home celebrations:

Candied apples look extra sweet when displayed on a tray of lined with crushed nuts and decorated with rose-hip berries and chrysanthemums.

Fill small burlap sacks with apples and your favorite apple pie recipe. Decorate the front of the sack with a fun label.

Decorate preserve-filled mason jars with stylish fall or Thanksgiving-themed ribbon & labels.

Fill mini favor bags with specialty trail mix (like cranberry nut by Archer Farms). Display the favors in a tray lined with the same mix!

Chances are good that you’re probably not going to whip up a wedding cake for Thanksgiving this year, but I couldn’t resist including this image because it’s just oh-so-beautiful and chocolate-y!

I’m not sure how this works, but somehow or other you should check out the Cake and a Prayer website. They are an on-line specialty provider of beautiful gift packages that include a personal prayer message on a 4×6 linen card, a 6-inch succulent lemon pound cake and an elegantly framed scripture or words of inspiration.

It made me a hit earlier this year at a family gathering. I believe it is the perfect to bring or send the Holiday Season.
