Thanksgiving Prep (Sunny Side Up)

Happy Saturday everyone!  Do you like the garland I attached over my butler’s pantry shelf this year!?  I hope so because it’s all over my house. :)  Making things SO cozy!  I’m still styling this shelf and finishing up my decorating this weekend, but I set a few of my go-to’s for holiday baking on the counter to share with you today.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner I thought it was a fun time to chat about a few favorites from Walmart that I use in my kitchen often!  Walmart has been getting in so many fun things for the holidays!

I always get excited when it’s time to pull out my red KitchenAid mixer!  A sure sign that the holidays are finally here. :)  I picked up this KitchenAid hand mixer last year too (comes in lots of colors) and what a game changer!  It’s SO much better than the other brands I had been using before.  I also love this set of 3 plastic cutting boards.  We have a pull out wooden cutting board built into our island that we love (you can see it in this post on my organized kitchen), but I tend to reach for these simple plastic cutting boards for the easy, every day stuff like dicing up an apple for Kole. :)  They are just so easy to use and quickly rinse clean!  This is also a great set of colanders if you need one!

What’s Thanksgiving and holiday baking without good mixing bowls!?  These KitchenAid mixing bowls are my absolute favorites!  They have a nice rubber grip on the bottom, are dishwasher safe and I love the pour spout!  I have a set of 3 in a blue/grey color that I use every day and then a set of red I always pull out to use in Nov/Dec.  Right now Walmart has my favorite mixing bowls in red, white and grey that come in a set bundle with the cutest little bowls and lids for leftovers!  I picked up a few of them for gifts.  Everyone can use good mixing bowls.. especially this time of year!

I included a few other Thanksgiving dinner essentials below!  My mom does most of the cooking for Thanksgiving every year.  My job is usually to entertain the kids, decorate and set the table, and then organize the fridge with all of the leftovers after.  No complaints here!  I quite prefer it that way. ;)  But if I WAS cooking.. below are a few personal favorites.

And since I do handle the tablescape I also pulled together some cute items for an easy but stylish Thanksgiving table.  This 20-piece flatware set looks beautiful for such a good price!  And how cute is the pattern on this white modern farmhouse dinnerware set!?  LOVE it.

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend!  I’ll be over here trying to figure out how to squeeze 4 months of holiday content into a month and a half.

Honestly wishing I never needed to sleep right about now!  So much garland.. so little time..

  1. Hi there! I love the garland and the sweet little wreath! Do you happen to know where the little wreath and cute red and white striped little bowls (on the cake stand) are from? Thanks so much for sharing all of your beautiful decorating ideas!

    1. Thank you so much! The wreaths I’ve had for years but I’m going to find some similar options soon (and link the bowls/cake stand) in my Christmas kitchen post! Hopefully it will be up this week.. stay tuned! :)

  2. Some great stuff , here, Erin! Thanks for sharing. Your butler’s pantry looks like it is ready to partay, Christmas style! Thanks so much for sharing. Good luck getting all the content in. Whew! It’s a marathon for sure. heehee You can do it! I have faith.

  3. I smiled when I read that you pull out your red Kitchen Aid stand mixer at the holidays. I’ve always thought how fun that would be! I have a black one that I’ve had for years, but having a red one just for the holidays would be the most fun thing!!
    Hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. So so cute!!! I love what you’re doing with the garland and wreaths. Can’t wait for all the coming fun posts! I’m getting so giddy to decorate! We just got furniture delivered today for our newly finished basement and I feel like I need/want to cover that fantastic added space with Christmas decor too!!! My husband isn’t so sure… :D You feel me! No corner un-Christmased! Enjoy the rest of your week, Erin!

    1. LOVE it Genelle! No corner un-Christmased for sure.. ha! This is why the two of us get along so well. ;) Thank you sweet friend and enjoy the holidays! xo
