Here at Delysia, we love to make every moment extraordinary. And we want to make already extraordinary moments even better. With a bounty of good food and warm family company, Thanksgiving dinner is definitely an extraordinary moment – but we have a few ideas that will enliven your décor even more and make your guests feel extra special. Here are some tips on how to incorporate Delysia chocolate into your Thanksgiving table décor for an unforgettable family feast:

1. Set the tone with sweets! To make your guests feel extra special as soon as they sit down at the table, surprise them with a chocolate turkey at their table setting. Use a Delysia molded chocolate turkey as a place card (try tying a hand-written name card around the turkey with some rustic twine). Who wouldn’t want to sit down to dinner and be surprised with a delicious chocolate gift! Or hide away the turkeys in gift boxes and set one on each of your guests’ plates. They’ll enjoy the anticipation of unwrapping the gift to find out what’s inside. Plus, if you arrange your turkeys in gift boxes, your guests can easily transport them home. But it’s okay if they take a little nibble before dinner, too.

2. Add an unexpected element to your table centerpieces with Delysia’s molded pumpkins and turkeys. Line the center of your table with classic fall décor, such as candle-lit lanterns, grapevine garlands, and orange and gold Autumn flowers – then tuck in a few molded chocolate pieces for added depth. Our chocolate pumpkins come in three different colors and flavors – dark, milk, and white chocolate – so you have a variety of decorating options. Gift your chocolate centerpieces to your guests once dinner is over.

3. If you’re setting up a separate dessert buffet for Thanksgiving, try scattering Delysia’s Autumn Truffles artistically around the pies and cakes you will be serving. Imprinted with pretty gilded orange and yellow leaf designs, the truffles act as extra sophisticated confetti. Bonus: they’re decoration you can bite into! Your guests will enjoy the fall flavors of apple cider, pecan pie, and pumpkin spice in these seasonal truffles. Chocolate with a taste of fall is the perfect way to end a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner.
