Every year we celebrate Thanksgiving with at potluck at my sister’s house. We always offer an open invitation to friends and family and celebrate Thanksgiving potluck style. We will have anywhere from 20-30 people at our Thanksgiving feasts. While everyone pitches in with the food, there are a few items that we make sure to provide as the co-hosts of the festivities.

6 Thanksgiving Entertaining Necessities for a Thanksgiving Potluck
A Festive Centerpiece
Generally on Thanksgiving we use flowers for pumpkins for a centerpiece on the buffet table. But this Fresh Fruit Bouquet™ from Edible Arrangements makes a gorgeous Thanksgiving dinner centerpiece. The Salted Caramel Harvest Bouquet™ with Orange Swizzle Berries is not only gorgeous, but it’s also serves as dessert or an appetizer. It includes Salted caramel apple wedges; Chocolate dipped strawberries with festive orange Swizzle®; playful pineapple leaves; a chocolate covered pineapple “apple”; and additional grapes, strawberries, and cantaloupe.

Fun and Festive Drinks
Every great meal needs a great beverage! Thanksgiving is a great time to up your drink game with unique beverages like Sipp Sparkling Organic Drinks. Available in 6 flavors, Sipp can be used in a cocktail recipe (see below for ideas!) or chilled and served on its own. Organics blend fruits, herbs and agave mix together to create a lightly sweetened sparkling beverage that goes well with Thanksgiving dinner.
If cocktails are more your style, then you need to check out Clean Cocktails: Righteous Recipes for the Modern Mixologist by Beth Ritter Nydick and Tara Roscioli. These holistic coaches created cocktail recipes that use low-calorie spirits, fresh juices, clean sweeteners like honey and maple syrup, and anti-inflammatory spices. The Pie Shooter sounds amazing! It tastes like a coconut cream pie, but with benefits of vitamins B complex and C. Sign me up!
Don’t Forget the Pets
We have a dog and three cats. My sister also has a dog and everyone always gets a treat on Thanksgiving. For the pups, check out Solid Gold Superfoods Chewy Dog Treats with Turkey, Sweet Potato and Cinnamon. These grain free dog treats combine turkey, sweet potatoes and cinnamon to deliver a texture, aroma and taste that are a nutrient-dense Thanksgiving treat for dogs of all sizes.
For our feline friends, try Tropical Blendz Cat Food with Turkey and Coconut Oil. Also grain free, wet cat food is
