7. Rosemary And Chipotle Spiced Nuts

Instead of something sweet set your table with a savory Thanksgiving favor. These delicious nuts are roasted with a spice blend of chipotle and rosemary and a few other ingredients.

8. Pomegranate Place Settings

Preparing a Thanksgiving feast can be a lot of work and when we’re overloaded with work we tend to forget a thing or two. If you’ve left your table settings to the last minute then this would be a great solution.

The pomegranate is such a pretty fruit, it’s crimson in color and screams fall. This place setting may be simple but it looks pretty. Write the names of your guests on the pomegranate using a gold pen. They can take the delicious fruit home and enjoy it later.
