I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: my sister Marabeth knows how to throw a party! A few weeks ago, she and her girlfriends got together for a Pizza and Pajama Party — but because we’re talking about Marabeth, you know they took things to the next level.
Rather than ordering delivery or popping some frozen pre-made pies in the oven, the ladies created a pizza bar complete with all the fixings to make their own personal slices of yum.
Not only is their pizza bar concept way more fun, it is a much healthier route to stuffing your face with pizza since you control the portion size by rolling out as little or as much crust and cheese as you prefer before piling on fresh veggies.
I mean, it’s basically a salad bar! But better.
My sister Marabeth is one of the most creative and entertaining hosts I’ve ever known. She doesn’t ever simply host a dinner — no way. There will be games, activities, and décor galore. Like all extraordinary hosts, my sister is all about the details.
The DIY Thankful Trees she made for us last Thanksgiving was one of my favorite details to date. They were gorgeous, but more importantly they were a great reminder for all the joys our family brings us. It made our gathering even more special, and it just might be the perfect thing for your family’s holiday, too!
I asked Marabeth to give you all the step-by-step details for making your own “Thankful Tree” for your family dinner this year. Be sure and tag me if you make one!
I absolutely love Thanksgiving! I host my family every year and it brings me so much joy and gratitude. As Julianne mentioned, I do love the little details. They are always what everyone treasures the most!
This year for one of our activities, I’m going to fill a jar with Indian corn for all to guess how many are in the jar. Whoever guesses the closest wins the candy-filled jar!
