Thanksgiving Dinner Tips & Leftover Ideas :: HGTV Feature

Share To:

thanksgiving 1

We are so excited to share this Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner + Leftover Station feature we styled for HGTV! In this feature, we are sharing lots of recipes, decor ideas, leftover packaging ideas + a new free Thanksgiving printable collection! We were lucky enough to use this beautiful home up in Flagstaff (friend of our photographer, Rennai) for our shoot. Isn’t this kitchen stunning? It was absolutely dreamy. The other wonderful part about this shoot? Enjoying the amazing Thanksgiving dinner afterwards (in May!). I left the cooking up to Molly and Ariana, and I convinced them to share their secret family recipes with HGTV. Enjoy the stunning photos by Ten22 Studio and then you’ll find the links to all of the printables + recipes at the end of this post!

    Because my family and most of my friends don’t have any other family in town we have been doing Thanksgiving and Christmas potlucks for years. Our leftovers are usually just divided up into gladware at the end. But this would certainly make it a little more fun and certainly prettier. 🙂
