Turkey Bowl Thanksgiving Get-Together

turkey bowl title


You know I love me some beautiful Thanksgiving tablescapes with nice dishes and clever place cards, but maybe you are in the mood for a more laid-back get-together over this holiday weekend. Maybe you want to watch the big game or maybe you want to play the big game yourself. Here are some ideas for hosting your own Turkey Bowl.

Last year we planned a big get-together with several families on the day after Thanksgiving–not everyone wants to shop all day on Black Friday. My friend Becky and her kids made some fun Thanksgiving treats: these melted cone cornucopias filled with m&ms, and the pilgrim hat cookies made from peanut butter cups and chocolate covered cookies.

The main dish was chili. Turkey chili. Get it? The idea is to use up some of your leftovers and enjoy some fun food all together. Of course if I had had a little more time and energy I would have made sure that every bowl we ate chili out of looked a bit like my turkey bowl mascot I designed above.

This certainly isn’t the favorite cake I’ve ever made, but one of our friends was celebrating a birthday and I wanted a cake that went with the turkey theme. So I made some candy feathers and a face out of candy and put them on a bundt cake. I think it was pumpkin flavored.

Our turkey bowl included a rousing game of flag football, as well as some kickball and frisbee. Your turkey bowl might instead be about watching your favorite college football bowl game on TV with your friends, or really anything that says fun and relaxation to you.

I’m including my little turkey bowl mascot image here to help with your turkey bowl plans. You can add him to an invitation (or on-line invitation if you are keeping it simple) or use him to make food labels for your spread. (Personal use only, please). Click on the image and attachment page to get the full sized graphic and then “save as” to download to your computer.

I hope your Thanksgiving holiday weekend has a bit of fancy, but more importantly, a bit of fun! Happy Thanksgiving!
