Add Some Spice to your Wedding with Target! #targetwedding #sponsored

As the weather gets colder and the holidays arrive, I yearn to be in the kitchen cooking up comfort food. Holiday food to me is comfort food. For me, being in the kitchen is being with family. I also love feeding people.

This November Target Wedding's is Adding Some Spice to the Target Wedding Registry by encouraging couples to bring together their personalities to have a great Thanksgiving. The Target Registry has all the tools that you will need to spice up your Thanksgiving and kitchen.

When I started living with my husband, we had a hodge podge of kitchen items. He had some pots, I had some pans. He had some appliances, I had some tools. It wasn't perfect but we made it work. After 19 years, I now have all the necessary tools and appliances I cane ever have to create delicious meals.

With Thanksgiving coming up, it is the perfect time for couples to peruse the Target Wedding Registry and see how they can fuse their different tastes and preferences to create a wonderful feast. Whether it is just the two of you or you are hosting a Thanksgiving for the whole family, these are must have items for you kitchen and registry!!

You need pots and pans. If possible, try and get a full set. With our hodge podge of pots and pans, it was almost impossible to cook a full meal without spending time trying to find the right pan. That's why a set of Calphalon Stainless Steel Cookware is the perfect addition to any registry. Just think of all the goodies you can make.  And make sure to buy a Turkey Pan like the T-fal Domed Roaster.


To serve up your tasty meal you will need some great dinnerware. The Threshold Bistro Ceramic 16-Piece Dinnerware Set is perfect for any get together. It is casual yet elegant enough for a great Thanksgiving meal. Pair it with some beautiful cloth napkins or stunning place mats. And do not forget the flatware like the Oneida Camlynn 45 Piece Flatware Set. The first dinner party I had, I realized that I had very few matching pieces of flatware. To compensate, I set my table with a mish-mash of plates and glasses and pretended I was trying to be trendy!

Remember food is not the only way to throw a fantastic dinner party or intimate meal. Remember to check out the decorations available. Decorate with pumpkins, wreaths and candles with wonderful scents. Do not forget the music! Having a wireless system in your house makes all the difference. The SONOS PLAY: 5 Wireless HiFi System is the perfect accompaniment to the perfect party. It allows you to stream music from your device or online from Pandora, iTunes etc. It also will fill your house with beautiful tunes from the classics to something more contemporary like Taylor Swift!



So during the holidays head over to Target for your holiday needs. If you know a couple who is getting married, make sure to browse the Target Wedding Registry for unique, practical and fantastic gifts.

Target is the place for wedding and holidays gifts this season!

  1. I love Thanksgiving, but I'm not a great cook! I leave the main course and side dishes to my uncle, mom and aunts, and I usually show up with dessert. I've made Flan Cake, Red Velvet Cake, and Dulce de Leche Cheesecake in the past. Not sure what I'm going to make this year, still thinking about it.
    Happy Fall, Caro!

  3. Last year my kids had a lot of fun making "acorn cookies". We took mini nutter butter cookies, spread some peanut butter on one side, then added a Hershey's kiss (the peanut butter acted as the glue). This kept them busy while I prepared the Thanksgiving meal and they ate them along with pie for dessert.

  9. My best tips are to prepare for Turkey day in advance. One thing I do is start three days out with dicing my onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Keep them in Ziploc bags or in airtight containers.

  12. Using chafing dishes is worth the initial investment to keep side dishes warm and not a last minute hassle. You will find that you use them for many more events.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Use a natural colored tablecloth or table runner on your dining table and let nature's bounty do the decorating. Spread red and green apples, onions, acorn squash, butternut squash, mini pumpkins, and assorted colorful gourds down the center of the table. It's colorful, easy, and you can eat most of the items at a later date.

  14. When my daughter was three, she didn't understand all the hustle and bustle for a holiday that didn't involve PRESENTS. She asked, "So, is there like a Thanksgiving Person coming?" Since then, we've anticipated the arrival of The Thanksgiving Person, who has always arrived for us. In other words, we realize each year that we have enormous gifts to be grateful for.

  93. Get everything prepped the day before so it's just a matter of putting things in the oven. We also got a separate turkey roaster pan so that my oven is free to bake all the side dishes. Handy! I set various timers so that I can relax and enjoy everyone and know when to get up to do something in the kitchen.

  134. My aunt cooks Thanksgiving dinner every year and we have a big family. A couple years ago my mom suggested that everyone bring my aunt $5 per adult to help with expenses. My suggestion would be to do this if you have a big family who gathers at one place for Thanksgiving. I know my aunt is so grateful that we do this and we are just as appreciative of everything she does to make our Thanksgiving wonderful.

  157. Does "Wear stretchy pants" count as a tip? That and "stock up on wine, because family togetherness" are pretty much my only Thanksgiving wisdom!

  188. I made pumpkin cheesecake this year and it tasted so much better than the 4 pumpkin pies people brought.

  189. We have ordered a take home meal for the last 4 years from a local restaurant for Thanksgiving. I love it because we still get the normal holiday fare, I don't have to cook, and we still have leftovers.

  192. Make everything you can the day before and make it a pot luck. We separate it out. My mom does the main dish, I do sides and appetizers and my brother does desserts. It helps spread out the cost and the time so we can relax and enjoy our time together.
    Thanks!

  196. My tip - you do not have to prepare everything from scratch.
    Everyone loves thanksgiving - it is so much about great traditional food There are some absolutely fantastic pies that you can buy if baking is not your thing. I watched a tv news report about people standing in line to get their reordered roasted turkeys ... ready to take home and put on the table. You can purchase deep fried turkeys which taste excellent while being an extremely dangerous thing for most people to attempt.

  197. We make turkeys out of construction paper..the feathers are different colored paper folded like a fan and glued together. Lisa L tylerpants(at)gmail.com

  198. My idea is to create a turkey centerpiece for the holiday. Allow the kids and family to be creative. I like the idea of using a Styrofoam ball for the main body that way you can poke feathers through it for the turkey's tail. A toilet paper roll or a smaller cylinder shape would be great for the neck and perhaps a smaller foam ball for the head. You can decorate with sequins, felt, or other materials.
