Thanksgiving’s almost here and chances are you’ve got several celebrations on the books (last year, guests noshed and sipped their way through an average of three different events with family—and more with friends). Whether you’re in charge of wine and apps for Friendsgiving, want to thank your amazing host for the big feast, or are serving up some pre-or-post-turkey snacks, we’ve got you covered with the perfect unique, easy food, drinks and special touches for any gathering. And let’s just say your wallet won’t feel nearly as stretched as your waistband.
Before (or after!) the feast
Creating an incredible Thanksgiving spread is time-intensive, but so worth it. So, why not keep the night before (and hey, even the night after) super-simple? Forget football—the real cheers will start when you arrive at a pre-or-post Thanksgiving gathering with these ice-cold craft brews and a few Archer Farms or Simply Balanced frozen pizzas (we’ve been busy making these pies better than ever, so we know they’ll hit the spot). And don’t forget the festive paperware because everyone could use a break from cooking—and doing the dishes.
When friends gather
When it comes to Friendsgiving, the more the merrier. But you’ll need a solid game plan to hit the right flavor notes without breaking the bank. How about treating your faves to wine and dessert (plus a cute gift for your host)—all at a great value? Mix up a sweet and (pumpkin) spicy Archer Farms treat (we swear, these taste homemade), arrange on a gorgeous Project 62 copper plate (your host’s sure to love this one), pick up one of our award-winning varietals of Wine Cube (packed with four standard bottles-worth of wine for just $18!) and you’re golden. And you’ll soon notice a new look on your beloved Wine Cube—it’s the same great wine (and price), with a more modern look. (And if you’re looking for even more Friendsgiving inspiration, check out these tips and extra-special touches from Camille Styles.)
A dazzling main event
On the big day, go ahead and focus on mastering a perfectly-crisped turkey (we have frozen Butterballs for just 99 cents per pound through Nov. 23) and mashing lump-free potatoes, because we’ve got the perfect apps and wines at-the-ready. Break out a variety of California Roots wines (with five varietals at just $5, there’s something for everyone) or for something with just a little more sparkle, try our new Bravino sparkling rosé Prosecco—it launched earlier this month exclusively at Target—for just $10. Throw together some ready-to-eat and fresh snacks and no one will mind if that turkey needs just a bit more cook time. Delicious.Looking for even more ways to save?
