I wish I had the skill and the eye for design to put together a beautiful holiday arrangement. My friends have the natural Pinterest gene that I lack, but I swoon over their beautiful designs and Instagram-worthy setups. While Thanksgiving is usually the holiday where I have our family over for dinner, the holiday snuck up on me and my mother in law took the burden off my hands this year. I’m thankful for that in itself, so I helped with the sides and made a variety of potatoes, the stuffing, cranberry sauce, and brought dessert. Easy stuff for me, especially with 3 kids in between my legs any time they see me doing something important.
While cheesecake and pie are the typical dessert options at the Thanksgiving table, I knew the kids wouldn’t like many of the desserts we grow accustomed to as adults. So, when Edible Arrangements offered to help me make the Thanksgiving dessert table look vibrant, I took the opportunity and chose an arrangement I knew everyone would love. The Season’s Greetings Celebration includes strawberries, grapes, cantaloupe, honeydew, and pineapple dipped in chocolate in the shape of stars and reindeer. The Snowman keepsake container drew me in because it’s fun and festive, and I imagined a bright poinsettia finding a home in it after we were done with the fruit.
While dinner and dessert satisfied our bellies, the cheerful Edible Arrangement was definitely the highlight of dessert. I loved how everyone opted for pieces of fruit over sugared pies and I was happy I could contribute to a gorgeous Thanksgiving table, considering I don’t have a creative bone in my body!
