It’s officially the holiday season! The countdown is on to Thanksgiving or what we like to call
turkey day. November is also the month of giving and being thankful. That’s why this year Stop & Shop is our one-stop-shop again. We all think about turkey but what about the less important like appetizers, mocktails, decor and everything in between. They’ve been our favorite when it comes to last-minute shopping for holiday-themed outings and Thanksgiving entertaining ideas. We all how much of a late shopper I can be at times.
It’s the first year we will be hosting in our home. So, no going to 2-3 families houses for dinner. We can actually sit and enjoy the beginning parts before the turkey and mashed potatoes. Heading out to our local Stop & Shop for our Thanksgiving entertaining ideas was a no brainer. My favorite part about them is their in-store pickup or delivery. So if I’m in a rush or have A with me I can have everything ready to pick up instead of spending more time shopping. It’s already done! Especially if it is closer to the holiday. Stop & Shop always makes our life easier. Now, what can you actually get?
Thanksgiving Entertaining Ideas To Make It Easier
Normally when you head Stop & Shop you can get a gist of everything once it is holiday time. From grocery to the bakeshop. PIE is a must on Thanksgiving. They make it so easy. Grab a 3 pack of pies for $11.99 this season! You know I had to pick up everyone’s favorites. Apple, pumpkin and cherry pie. Plus if you are even busier on Thanksgiving, because of all the football games you can have this day catered. All you have to do is call and order ahead or visiting your local store, and pick it up close to the holidays!
Go big. The kiddos love to snack and if you don’t do dinner until the evening you need everything. Finger appetizers are key. You can enjoy these but also walk around, mingle, talk and laugh. You don’t want to have to sit around and eat before the socializing and the fun starts. That’s why I am all for these Hormel packs. They come big or small and welp we love these. Add fruits and whatever else you need for everyone. Plus my famous crescent roll-ups! Just add just cheese, ham, pepperoni or even chicken. Of course chips and dip.
Grab everything. The bakeshop has everything from cookies, blondies, and cupcakes. Our fave is pie with ice cream. So make sure you pick up different pie flavors.
We all get thirsty. Sparkling water, juice, and our favorite mocktails. They had a small section near their sparkling water and was able to find this mint sparkling mocktail mix. Add this with your favorite juices, apple cider and fruit and voila. Plus A is getting into sparkling everything so he will love this mocktail. If you want to add a splash of your favorite spirit go right ahead.
