If you’re having a Thanksgiving wedding, you’re blessed with the bounty of the harvest and so many delicious menu ideas. Hmm…how many ways can you use a hollowed out pumpkin?
Thanksgiving weddings have their advantages and the food is definitely one of them. In addition to great design colors, family, and overall warmth, the Thanksgiving holiday celebrates food that is delicious and comforting. Here are some ideas for a Thankgiving wedding menu.
You can’t go wrong with traditional food like turkey, mashed potatoes, red potatoes, corn bread and honey-glazed carrots but you can make it more creative and sophisticated depending on how you serve it.
Serve soup or veggies in a hollowed out pumpkin. Roasted veggies can be stuffed into a cornucopia shaped croissant – these are easily DIY with Pilsbury croissant rolls. If you’re wedding is after Thanksgiving, it would be best to not serve a traditional meal with turkey – opt for a marinated pork roast instead with maple-glazed squash.
For Thanksgiving-themed drinks, serve warm apple cider with cinnamon sticks, seasonal microbrews in fall flavors, or one of these delicious signature wedding cocktails inspired by the flavor of fall. You can use the pumpkin as an ice bucket for the beer or as a punchbowl for the cocktails.
Embrace darker wedding cakes for Thanksgiving including spiced, pumpkin, and chocolate. Use burnt orange and chocolate brown colors and decorate with autumn leaves or harvest fruits. We love the beautiful cornucopia cake by Pink Cake Box wedding cakes in New Jersey.
