Thanksgiving Fiesta

Thanksgiving celebrates a melting pot of cultures, so we styled this holiday table a south of the border vibe and created a menu to match! Held inside the north Phoenix Whitfill Nursery, Posies Floral florist, Jami Pitts drew inspiration from Mexico’s vivid color palette to brighten the table. From cilantro lime roasted green beans to habanero corn bread stuffing, you too can get creative with your menu.

Don’t forget the celebratory sips to go with your meal! Is there a better way to begin any holiday than with bubbly? Start off by popping a bottle of Pierre Paillard Grand Cru Brut. This grower’s champagne is a splurge, but well worth it. Follow it up with a light dry sparkling wine like Val de Mer Non Dosage Brut. Our third pairing, the Leitz Out Riesling, lives up to its name and makes a fun conversation piece on the table. Finish off with a bottle of Tres Picos Gamacha to round out the meal and play off the spice in the menu. Cheers!
