Happy Sunday! We hope everyone is enjoying a FABULOUS weekend with family and friends! We have so many fun and exciting posts coming up this week on our blog that we just had to share an extra fun bonus Sunday post with ya’ll. We will be sharing all sorts of recipes and DIY projects throughout the week so be sure to check back often.
Ahh Thanksgiving! It is definitely one of our favorite holidays. Especially since we bought our first home and decided to host Thanksgiving as a couple. For the past four years, we have been sharing our love of everything Turkey with our family. But cooking Thanksgiving often leaves us with tons of leftovers and no idea what to do with them. So this year, we decided to plan ahead and came up with a fun way to enjoy the leftovers with our friends …
“Thankful for Leftovers and Game Night Dinner Party” by Liz and Ryan
If you are hosting Thanksgiving and you are anything like us, then you will most likely end up with a ton of leftovers. This year we wanted to be creative and think of a fun way to share our leftovers. So we came up with a Leftovers Game Night Dinner Party for our friends that you can create too.
Hosting Thanksgiving is definitely a lot of work so we wanted to make sure we kept things simple. With just a little gold spray paint, glitter, board games, and supplies you can pick up at Home Goods or Michael’s, you can create a super fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends.
Start the evening off with your favorite board games and cocktails. For us, that means pulling out two of our favorites, Scrabble and Monopoly. When you “pass go” be sure to mix up some of your favorite fall drinks such as a Caramel Apple Cider Martini.
Next spice up the leftover turkey sandwiches with a little blue cheese, cranberry relish and arugula, and stuff the stuffing in red bell peppers. Finally turn the left over pumpkin pie into one of the most AMAZING milkshakes ever.
This party could be turned into a couple’s date night or just a fun evening with friends. No matter what, it will be a full of laughter and tasty Thanksgiving leftovers. And that is something to be thankful for.
