Thanksgiving Dessert Buffet

Thanksgiving is hands-down my favorite holiday. Growing up, Thanksgiving was the big holiday in our house and it still is to this day. There is something about the holiday that makes me giddy with excitement. Time stands still on Thanksgiving weekend and my family and I eat, talk, eat, talk, and eat and talk some more well into the night! For me, the holiday evokes memories of marshmallows bubbling on sweet potatoes, my mom’s amazing onion & mushroom stuffing, and of course our delicious turkey in the oven. My mom used to start prepping our turkey on Thanksgiving Eve, and my brother and I would awake to the aroma of gravy simmering on the stove. This year, I am hosting Thanksgiving and am having my whole family over for Thanksgiving in my home. I have so much to be thankful for and will relish every moment during this holiday.

Since Thanksgiving is this week, we decided to mock up a dessert buffet with lots of Thanksgiving goodies that you can create at home for your own Thanksgiving holiday. Some highlights are mini mayflower boats filled with candy, pilgrim hat cupcakes, turkey window favor bags, and apple cider with cinnamon sticks. We hope you enjoy it!

I love thanksgiving a lot!
Maybe it is because I celebrate in two times - two tasteful dinners, two really great evenings...it's because half of my family lives in the US and the other half in Canada.
It could not be better!
And your cupcakes are gorgeous!
