15 Edible Thanksgiving Decorations
Since I have a large family for any holiday gathering, I’m always trying to plan ahead for our menu, activities, lodging, etc. And this year, I’ve decided to combine some of my table decorations with edible treats, even a few crafts that the kids can help make! So here is my list of 15 Edible Thanksgiving Decorations.
DIY Baked Cornucopia Centerpiece – What a fun centerpiece this would be! I love that you can make it ahead of time and fill it with your favorite treats or even decorations like silk flowers, nuts or leaves!
Turkey Cake – This would definitely be a project, but it would surely be a delight to the guests for Thanksgiving dinner! A cake in the shape of a turkey, feathers and all!
Paper Bag Turkey – You won’t find your usual stuffing inside of this fun turkey. Great for an afternoon snack or a pre-dinner gathering!
Cheese Turkey Snacks – Out on the table or a treat for the kids school party, these are sure to be a healthy hit!
Pumpkin Dinner Rolls – They not only look like pumpkins, but they taste like them too!
Pumpkin Shaped Cheese Ball – A delicious snack before dinner or to share during the football games and other family activities.
Meringue Pumpkins – These pumpkin shape treats, including their faces, are perfect for fall. I think I would color them a darker shade of orange and maybe leave the faces off for the Thanksgiving meal though.
Pilgrim Hat Cookies – Cute and easy to make, you can’t beat that. You could also use the same ingredients to make a turkey or leaf outline as well.
Easy Candy Acorns – These make a cute (and sweet) gift or place card holder. Plus your guests have a treat when you’re done!
Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcake – Free printables to turn a plain cupcake into a turkey for the table! Or you can even have folks color their own (this would be great for the kids table I think).
Fruit and Veggie Turkey – A different take on a relish tray, that’s for sure! Serve this turkey with your favorite dip or spread.
Pilgrim Snack Hat – If you have a kids table to help entertain the little ones before or after the meal, this should be on the list! Just a few normal crafting supplies and they have their own snack dispenser.
Mayflower Bread Boats – Don’t use a plate to serve Thanksgiving dinner! Check out this fun serving idea instead.
Candy Cornucopia – Whether you leave these out for dessert or send home with your dinner guests, these are a fun spin on the traditional cornucopia idea.
Edible Turkey Decorations – These little cute guys are as fun to look at as they are to gobble up!
Aren’t these just adorable? What are your favorite edible decorations?

These photographs are all so great. The prettiest one has to be the Turkey Cake! It reminds me of a particular episode of the 1980’s children educational tv show, “Reading Rainbow”. On it, the host, actor LeVar Burton, went behind the scenes of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The viewers got to watch the parade crew preparing the gigantic turkey float, which is spectacular. This cake looks just like it!
These are cute ideas. Food art can be so creative and a good way to get picky eaters to eat.
