My Kind of Holiday with Target #MyKindOfHoliday

I’m excited to be teaming up this holiday season with Target for #MyKindOfHoliday.  How do you celebrate the holidays?  It is it super elegant and festive or a simple affair?  Our Thanksgiving dinner is pretty simple and low key and it usually includes dinner with my parents and/or in-laws.  And I love that because I get to enjoy great foods like chicken & dressing, baked ham, deviled eggs,potato salad and more!

Usually I make a dessert or two like a chess cake or pound cake,  and then I’ll make something special for my dad like a custard pie or a cobbler.  But for this holiday season, I’m thinking of doing a banana pudding and either a chess cake or an oatmeal cake.  But I’m also currently testing some other recipes.  For example, the other day I tried out this Frozen Peppermint Pie (recipe to come!).

I actually bought the pie dish and the red platter pictured here at Target.  And when I was shopping the other day, I also found a lot of great fall table decor  in stock.  They have so many great platters, bowls, and other accent pieces in bright, bold fall colors that would really dress up the Thanksgiving table.

Take a look! Don’t these look fabulous?

I especially love the platters! They would be perfect for meats or sides such as the deviled eggs, or even cookies and candies.  And I think bright colors like this really help to make your table look more inviting and festive, which just makes the whole meal more special!

As a blogger, I guess you could say that one of my new holiday traditions is taking photos of the foods I make, so for this reason, the platters also appeal to me, as they would be perfect for foodie photo shoots!

And then I also love their line of Mercury Glass! These dishes and candle holders look so elegant! Don’t you agree?

What are your favorite holiday traditions? Are you buying any new decorations or table decor for the holidays this year?
