A Gift Idea for Expectant Parents

Pumpkin Candle Centerpiece

No centerpiece for a Thanksgiving party? Use this idea for an easy arrangement using only three ingredients: a pumpkin, a candle, and berry sprigs. Here's a fresh way to display pumpkins and candles for Thanksgiving dinner.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Snap or cut the stem off the top of the pumpkin. Placing the bottom end of the pillar candle on the top of the pumpkin, tightly trace the perimeter of the candle's bottom with a marker.
2. Using a sharp knife, cut vertically just inside the traced outline. The cut portion can then be discarded.
3. Wedge the candle securely inside. If you've cut the hole a bit too large, simply place a can or other object inside the pumpkin as a base for the candle. If necessary, keep the candle from tipping by wedging one end of a vine in between the candle and the cut edge.
4. Tuck in a few leaves and sprigs of vine around the base of the candle.

A Delicious Vegetarian Roast

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Jones Soda. All opinions are 100% mine.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I am sure most people are crazy for turkey around the holidays, but others are not fond of turkey. If you are having a vegetarian guest this coming holidays, you should not worry because Jones Soda Co. created this special soda for all vegan people out there. Introducing the new Tofurky and Gravy Soda. This soda is especially formulated for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I received a sample and thought it tasted quite interesting. It wasn't at all what I expected. When I first received it, I thought it was going to taste like tofu/turkey/gravy, but actually it wasn't that bad. It probably will become the next American tradition where every family will have Tofurky and Gravy Jones Soda for their Thanksgiving feast. My brother-in-law is hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I would love to get him this new Soda for Thanksgiving. He used to be a vegetarian so I am sure he would appreciate this drink. If you love Turkey, then you probably would love this drink as well. This drink is 100% vegan so even the strictest vegetarians could enjoy it. This drink is best served with mashed potatoes. You can order a gift package which would include one Bottle of Jones Zilch Black Cherry, one bottle of Jones Zilch Pom, one bottle of Jones Zilch Vanilla Bean, three bottles of ToFurkey and one ToFurkey Metal Lunch Box. This great deal is only $11.99 and for every purchase of this product, $1 goes to the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). PAWS is a shelter for homeless animals. So if you are looking for a great gift, you should checkout the Tofurky and Gravy Soda today.
