Thanksgiving Recipes & Decorations

Leave a comment

Thanksgiving is coming up so quickly this year! It seems like just yesterday was Halloween, some of you may still have your decorations up in the yard.

Here at Just Like Family, we love a good Thanksgiving meal. It brings everyone together around a shared common interest: food! It’s a great way to get everyone thinking about the present and what they are grateful for, right before the rush of Christmas and the winter holidays comes along.

If you’re like us, you can’t wait to start making that delicious stuffing, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows. We have some fun recipes that are a little different from the usual, along with a few decoration ideas to make your space feel festive.

At the bottom of the article, we also have links to a few of our other Thanksgiving-themed posts that include tips for not going crazy during the holidays and more fall decorations and recipe ideas.
