White is the color of purity. It is clean and fresh and modern and traditional. It can be so many things depending on how you want to use it. An all-white wedding or party can be breathtaking. White softens and complements any other color. Popularized by rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs, all-white themed parties are elegant events that require guests to wear only crisp shades of white. The color white typically symbolizes purity and cleanliness. It can be used as the basis for an all-white soiree, which typically includes an array of white or off-white decorations, furniture, food and drinks. All-white parties can be held at any time of year and in a variety of venues. In terms of the party’s decorations, white fabrics, such as tablecloths and drapes, make the all-white party venue both classy and whimsical. White pillar and floating candles and white paper bags with tea lights make for excellent mood lighting. White umbrellas, seashells and glass bottles and bowls can also be used for decoration at an all-white party. Flowers are very important; white roses, calla lilies, carnations and hydrangeas are ideal for all-white parties. Furniture at your all-white party can include white outdoor patio furniture, such as wood or wicker chairs and tables. You can serve food and beverages on dark wood dining or coffee tables for a more sophisticated look. Foods served at an all-white party can include white foods, as well as other foods that are lighter in color. An assortment of white cheeses or white bean dip with pita chips can be served as appetizers. Main dishes can include chicken, pork, turkey and risotto. Side dishes might include white corn or cauliflower. Desserts for an all-white party may include coconut cake with white butter-cream frosting, angel food cake, white chocolate-covered strawberries and vanilla ice cream.

It is marked by activities such as grilling food and consuming alcoholic beverages. The party takes place before or after events such as sports events or concerts, and are held at parking lots. Tailgating is the term used for attending such parties, which are so popular that many people don’t attend a particular event but just the tailgate party. Football games, as well as other games like soccer, basketball and hockey, or occasions such as weddings and food events often feature such kind of parties. Picnic foods like cold salads, hamburgers and hotdogs are convenient choices for such parties. People were making and sharing big pots of gumbo, clam chowder, chili, steamed lobsters, shrimp, and of course hotdogs. But not just any hot dogs.

Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. In the US it’s celebrated on the fourth Thursday on November. In Canada it’s celebrated on the second Monday in October. The reason for the earlier date in Canada is because it coincides with the annual harvest. Modern day Thanksgiving is celebrated by everyone! It’s a time to cherish family, and be thankful for everything you have experienced throughout the year. Cherish every Thanksgiving Holiday like it’s the last! You’ll never know if a family member or friend will not be able to make it the following year! Remember those fighting for their country, whom can’t be with their families on this holiday! Thanksgiving is about being thankful for everything we have in our lives, especially our loved ones! Turkey Paint : Paint your faces with turkey figures, get an artificial tattoo done on yourself to go with the party theme. Go absolutely wild on colours, trust me you would love it. These are only some of the ideas that can make your party worthwhile. We also invite you to send us some more party ideas. Decoration : Place pumpkin spice candles everywhere . It will make the house feel comfortable and inviting. Their glow warmed the house and illuminated the many decorative touches around the family, living and dining rooms. There were turkeys everywhere! Small stuffed animal turkeys, tin turkeys, paper turkeys with round tissue papered belly’s, painted turkeys and cute pinecone turkeys (with googly eyes, felt beaks and wattles, and pipe cleaner tails). Craft : A table can be set up in the family room for a special holiday craft the kids could make and take home – a colorful turkey sun catcher. With brown tempura paint the kids can paint the bottom of their bare foot and stamp his footprint on a piece of brown construction paper. While that dried, they have to cut out a bunch of feather shapes from red, orange and yellow tissue paper and also a brown paper turkey plumage outline that had about a ½ inch border. A piece of plastic wrap should be put on the work surface and using the plumage outline as a guide, brush on a mixture of 2 parts glue and 1 part water to the plastic wrap. Then randomly place the tissue feathers on the sticky surface, brush more of the glue mixture on the tissue and place the plumage outline on the feathers. Let the glue dry completely, then gently pull away the plastic wrap. Trim any tissue paper that pokes out of the plumage. Lastly, cut out your footprint and glue it to the middle of the plumage (heel side up, his toes were the turkey’s feet). Add googly eyes and a construction paper beak and wattle to the heel. It will look beautiful and incredible if taped to a windowpane. Dining Room Decoration : Next up comes dinner. The dining room table should decorated with a satin gold tablecloth, large white dinner plates with gold trim, delicate silverware, large water goblets and beige cotton napkins tied with gold and white ribbon. The centerpiece should be a long shallow gold tin filled with red, white and yellow fall flowers that draped over the sides so as not to obstruct anyone’s view across the table. And I almost forgot the most important element. Guests knew where to sit by finding their very own turkey gobbler place card. Let me explain… You can use oranges and apples to begin with. Glue craft feathers together to make a turkey tail then glue the tail to a toothpick and stick the toothpick into either an apple or orange. Use mini pinecones bought at a craft store, to make the turkey’s face – two googly eyes, a paper beak and wattle – and poke the pinecone into the fruit at the opposite end of the feathers. Then write the guests’ names on small paper squares glued to toothpicks and insert each name into the top of the orange or apple. The turkeys will look delightful all around the table and add a bit of down home charm to an otherwise elegant table. Dinner : This year begin the meal with a special soup harvested from all the guests. Ask each to bring one ingredient to include in a soup that would be eaten by all and symbolic of our affection for one another. They can bring zucchini, noodles, mushrooms, potatoes, chicken, anything they want to contribute to this one-of-a-kind soup. Serve it to everyone before the feast begin. It will be delicious and the kids will enjoy it because they know that they have taken part in making it. After dinner you can play a game of “cold turkey”. This is a game that will encourage each of us to reflect on what we are thankful for. While your friends talk, watch television, or play board games, yell out cold turkey. At that moment all have to stop whatever it is they are do and take a moment to think about how lucky we are. Yell this out several times during the evening and believe it or not all will freeze when they hear it . End your Thanksgiving dinner by yelling out a big THANK YOU in chorus. (2) Hey!
