Gobble, Gobble! It’s Turkey Time!

So, you sent out the invitations and now you are the host of the Thanksgiving feast. Do not push the panic button! Destin Commons has you covered from all fronts.

First thing’s first- setting the mood for a Thanksgiving celebration that your guests will not soon forget. Let’s start with setting the perfect table. Williams-Sonoma has tablecloths galore whether your tastes run more rustic farmhouse or more formal. We love the Heritage Turkey Jacquard Table Runner and the Plymouth Plaid Tablecloth.                      


Or go with a more neutral base and add in elegant details such as these stunning Plymouth Bird Embroidery Napkins. These napkins look stunning when displayed folded in these silver metal leaf napkin rings.


Round out your Thanksgiving table with these sophisticated Plymouth Pumpkin Dinner Plates. They look exquisite when placed on top of the silver Autumn Vine Charger.

Are you worried about little ones breaking the dinnerware? We completely understand and that is why we have invested in these adorable melamine Autumn plates from Southern Living.

To round out your Thanksgiving décor be sure to check out the wide selection at Southern Living. We personally love the mini wheat stacks and decorative pumpkins.        


And do not forget this delicious smelling pecan pie candle. We want our homes to smell like this all year long!

Now it is time to get cooking! If you are anything like us, we are sure that might need a few kitchen tools to help on the big day. Williams-Sonoma has all the Turkey Day essentials. We suggest starting with the Autumn Fruit & Spice Brining Blend. By brining your turkey, you are guaranteed to have juicy and flavorful meat. Trust us- your guests will thank you!

Let Williams-Sonoma help on the prep work with a few of their starter kits. One of our favorites is this Focaccia Stuffing with Cranberry Relish and Turkey Gravy Base. Anything that makes life easier is fine by us. And it does not stop there with all the bread mixes, glazes and seasoning blends. Yum is all we have to say!

Now on to the big debate- potatoes with or without texture! Some people prefer a bit of texture for their mashed potatoes. If you fall into this category, then you must have the All-Clad Stainless-Steel Potato Masher.

Or if you cannot even imagine anything but smooth and creamy potatoes, then you definitely need to use a mixer. Our pick is this KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer. Plus, nothing says “Look at me- I am Ina Garten” like this beauty sitting on your kitchen counter- even if it just for show most of the year!

And now back to more turkey must haves. Williams Sonoma has a wide variety of roasters, thermometers, and basters to choose from. 

No Thanksgiving meal is complete without pie! Some of you might not even imagine Thanksgiving being complete without the traditional pumpkin pie while others prefer a rich and decadent pecan pie. Whatever you flavor is, make sure you purchase one of these Emile Henry Ruffled Pie Dishes. Who knows, you might even begin making pies on a regular basis.

So, do not fret over hosting America’s favorite eating day. Destin Commons invites you to come and check out all the goodies we have in order to help make this the best Thanksgiving ever. Gobble, Gobble!
