Beer Bread Stuffing + Easy Thanksgiving Table Decor
Beer Bread + Sausage Stuffing I’m so excited to share today’s post! I tried a delicious, classic Thanksgiving recipe with a twist. I love stuffing, and it’s my favorite when it is homemade. Since I also love craft beer, I knew I had to try to make a unique Beer Bread Stuffing for our Friendsgiving this year. It was a hit! I found this recipe for beer bread and sausage stuffing on Pinterest. I chose it because the recipe didn’t call for an overload of ingredients. It linked a beer bread recipe that was also super easy to make! The beer bread itself will be something I will make again and again. I used a light beer (Bud Light actually… lol). The recipe called for garlic powder and cheddar cheese which I used and I’m glad I did! The cheese helped make an amazing crust. It would be a great bread on its own for soups! The beer bread was an amazing base for the stuffing too. The completed dish was hearty and flavorful. The stuffing recipe called for sausage, which doesn’t have to be used, but I’m glad I kept it in. It added just the right amount of fat and flavor. Since the sausage I had was so fatty, I actually omitted all of the butter the recipe called for. I also cut this recipe in half since I didn’t want the full amount. Everyone at the dinner thought it was delicious, so I’ll be keeping this recipe around for next year! From this… To this! Yum! Easy Thanksgiving Table Decor Even though I was planning to take this dish to a Friendsgiving, I wanted to set my own Thanksgiving inspired table with some of my favorite dinnerware and fall decor. What I pulled together was surprisingly festive and simple. So, I wanted to share a few tips for setting your table for Thanksgiving, or any large gathering! Use a table runner to add dimension. Pick one or two accent colors, otherwise stick to neutrals. Layer plates with both simple and decorative designs. Choose cloth napkins that feel luxurious. Create height with candles and pillars. Use garland down the length of the table to pull it all together! Shop This Post For more Thanksgiving inspiration, I’ve created a curated Pinterest board just for followers of Brewing Up Style! Be sure to follow it here. I’ve linked all of my dinnerware and decorations below! Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? How do you prepare for the big day? Cheers!

Unique Gift Guides: The Creative
#1/#2/#3/#4/#5/#6/#7/#8 The Creative I love buying gifts for others! I think it is so fun to pick out the perfect item for someone I love! So in order to celebrate the spirit of the season, I’ll be putting together a collection of unique gift guides for everyone in your life. First up, the creative! Gifts Creatives Will Love Now, there are so many ways to be “creative” that it was hard to narrow down just one type of person for this gift guide! However, I chose items I felt would be most valued by the creative type. Items like Adobe Photoshop, digital styluses, and cool backpacks will fit the bill for any graphic designer, blogger, or budding photographer. Coloring, buddha boards, and calligraphy will spark imagination in even the most casual creator! The best part? All of these items are available on Amazon, and it can’t get much more convenient than that! Keep reading for more detail about each item. 1. Buddha Board The Buddha Board is something that I stumbled across just the other day. You paint on the board with a brush and water to create images, and then as the water evaporates the image disappears. Like a grown-up Etch-A-Sketch, this board can be drawn on again and again! 2. Beautiful Birds and Treetop Treasures Coloring books have been popular for the artistically inclined (and not so much) for a while. No one makes beautiful coloring books quite like Millie Marotta. I personally have one of her coloring books myself and it is truly inspiring! The Beautiful Birds and Treetop Treasures book is her newest edition. 3. Derwent Colorsoft Pencils 24 Count A beautiful coloring book needs beautiful, professional quality color pencils. I also use these Derwent ones that are amazing! The intensity of the color can be varied by pressure on the page and they blend beautifully. 4. Cool Backpack Whether the creative in your life carries around a computer or paintbrushes; a stylish, yet functional, backpack is always a must! I love this unisex backpack because of its light grey color. The leather details definitely up the laid-back vibe. This backpack would be perfect to take anywhere! 5. Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 One essential for most creative people today is Adobe Photoshop and all that comes with it. If your creative friend is just getting started, why not gift them the tools to create stunning photos?! Photoshop and Lightroom have the power to take photos and images to the next level. So thoughtful! 6.Lettering For Beginners I love beautiful handwriting. Someday, I hope to take up lettering/calligraphy to really hone in that talent and maybe DIY some invitations in the future. For anyone in your life that has the DIY bug and loves to draw, calligraphy just might be for them! I love this little set because it also comes with different color pens. 7. Digital Pen/Stylus Since so much is created online or on a device today, a good digital pen/stylus is a must. This budget friendly gift would also be perfect for someone who wants to master the perfect Insta-story and incorporate fun designs into their posts. 8. “Choose Your Weapon” Apron For any creative that loves to paint (or cook), this fun apron is for them! It’ll capture their spirit while also keeping them clean. It would be so fun in a gift basket of other times like paint brushes and a canvas! Do you have a creative in your life? Do you love these gift ideas? Share below! Cheers!
