DIY Party: Thanksgiving Day Cracker Buffet

DIY Party: Thanksgiving Day Cracker Buffet

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of NABISCO Cookies and Crackers. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you ready for your Thanksgiving celebrations? With all of the fun and excitement of the holiday season, it will be here before we know it. Let's get our plans in motion now so we can relax & enjoying our family on the big day. I have some really tasty DIY Party ideas for a Thanksgiving Day Cracker Buffet. Besides rhyming, it's also a fun way to introduce a little something new this year.

Turkey Day Cracker Buffet IdeasInspiration for this idea come from the "Bring Home The Holidays With The Ultimate Party Planner" that's packed with fresh ideas and savings. I received a recipe to try that included Ritz Crackers. A total classic must-have for the holidays in my family!

I shopped at Publix to put together this party and to grab all of the scrumptious ingredients and all of my Thanksgiving decor too!

Making your own cracker bar is a breeze. We all know the usual suspects that go perfectly with crackers. Think cheese & meats, spreads & dips as well as sliced fruits & veggies!

Make it look pretty, and you're on the right track. Taking a few extra moments to make things look uniform and pretty will go such a long way for a perfect party display.

Another important thing to do when creating a party table is to get some height on the table. I did this two ways. I purchased a bundle of decorative wheat at Publix and placed them inside a tall vase I already had.  I also used a small cardboard box covered with a matching cloth napkin I had on hand to offer another level on the table. Affordable and clever!

The recipe that I was given to try is for Roasted Turkey & Sweet Potato RITZwich. What a unique recipe to try with all the flavors of Thanksgiving tucked into a cracker sandwich. The end result is totally drool worthy.

Here's how to make these crowd pleasing appetizers! These are perfect for using up leftover Thanksgiving foods, but you can also just purchase these ingredients pre-cooked which is what I did.

I'm craving a buttery Ritz cracker right now. Am I the only one - but I don't need a topper with a Ritz? I'd eat an entire package plain :-)
