Simply Ambience

Thanksgiving is only a week and a half away!  Whether it’s for two people or 30, prepping for the big day in advance makes the entire hosting experience so much more fun.  So, with the biggest feast of the year just around the corner, I’m guessing you’re thinking about what stuffing you’ll be serving and how you’ll be cooking the Turkey, but have you thought about what music you’ll be playing?  I know, I know, it might be the last thing on your list but believe me when I say music is key to setting the right mood at any gathering.  We’ll get to tabletop décor and cooking later this week and next, but right now let’s concentrate on a major part of any Thanksgiving celebration…the tunes!

I’ve been scrolling through my music library and have come up with 15 perfectly seasonal Thanksgiving songs that everyone – from the 6 yr old to the 16 yr old to the 76 yr old– in your life will enjoy.   Add these to your Thanksgiving playlist and remember: if the dog gets into the turkey or the guests show up late, you’ll still have a good soundtrack!

    i saw ashow the other day where you had a guest on (woman) who made an apple pie where she made abatter topping she dropped on and then some other topping on top of that – can’t find the recipe anywhere. it was also the show you carved out a pumpkin & put oasis in side and then put wire thru gourds and added them to pumpkin with moss & leaves.

    hope you can send me the recipe for the apple pie.

    thanks for your time.

    happy thanksgiving
