Thanksgiving is a National holiday celebrated mainly in Canada and the US. It’s celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It’s an opportunity to get together with family and friends and give thanks over a delicious meal!
Prepare your table for the festivities of Thanksgiving with an array of large foil platters and autumnal shades like gold and orange. Our maple leaf confetti sets the scene perfectly, simply sprinkle throughout your tableware or on your buffet station. Add some maple leaf place mats along with gold cutlery for each place setting, if you’d like to be a bit more formal or you have a lot of guests, opt for Thanksgiving themed place cards too! You could even have a go at making your own place cards with large fallen leaves; simply spray them gold and add the names of your guests with a black permanent pen. This is a celebration after all so don’t forget the party poppers!
