Party Tips: Thanksgiving Entertaining with Kerri

I met Kerri through fellow style mavens in Blogger World. She does not currently have a blog, but posts the most fabulous style ideas on Facebook and I love her taste. She was kind enough to share some ideas on entertaining for Thanksgiving.


Favorite Cocktails:
For entertaining, Kerri serves Spiced Apple Cider.

Spiced Apple Cider
4 oz Vodka
2 oz Brandy
2 oz Triple Sec
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp superfine sugar
1 tsp brown sugar
Each glass - a cinnamon stick and a thin slice of apple
Great for a Thanksgiving after dinner drink!

For drinking, Kerri's favorite is ECOSSE BRUT SPARKLING WINE

Favorite Recipes:
A dessert recipe that would be perfect for Thanksgiving. Roasted Apple And Vanilla Souffle RECIPE

PIERRE HERMÉ MACAROONS are a another favorite of Kerri's and she loves to have them out as a treat for guests. Yum!

Favorite Restaurants:
For comfort food in Boston, Kerri loves SILVERTONE'S Mac and Cheese.

Two other Boston favorites:

SCAMPO in the hip Liberty Hotel (which used to be Boston's jail) is celebrity chef Lydia Shire's newest spot in town.

Also a favorite is PREZZA in the North End

Best Party Tips:

*Lucite trays - personalizes a party and you can use them for drinks or for cheese and crackers. You can order one HERE.

*For Thanksgiving personalize the table with place cards and photos. 

*Fresh cut flowers are a must and add autumnal color to Thanksgiving Table.

*If you don't have a bartender, then fill a tub with ice and an array of cocktail choices.

*Being a fashionista, Kerri had to add that the hostess must wear a favorite and fabulous dress!

Thanks for the great ideas, Kerri!

  1. More things to love--I've been looking for a lucite tray. Thanks to you and Kerri for the inspiration.

  2. I can tell I'd love to attend one of Kerri's parties - that spiced apple cider! The mac and cheese! That souffle - so many delicious treats!

  3. Yum, what a great post...
    I must have developed a big sweet tooth in my old age as that roasted apple souffle looks amazing although a bit challenging.
    Great ideas and beautifully presented.
    The Thanksgiving table with family photos is lovely as well.
    Love your blog Kate!!
