Scott's Liquid Gold Wood WashBefore you even set the Thanksgiving dinner table, make sure your table and dining chairs are worthy of guests. Scott’s Liquid Gold makes American Made cleaning products. They gave me some to try and now I’m hooked because I realized I’d rather use a product I can trust. My dining table and chairs are used 3 times a day, everyday. With 2 kids in the house, those chairs are sticky, grimy, and, well, plain embarrassing. I make sure guests aren’t sticking to their seats, or touching last week’s dinner remnants hidden on the underside of the table. Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Wash cleans away dirt, grime, and fingerprints. Don’t have tables and chairs made of wood? No problem! Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Wash works on simulated wood, painted surfaces, fiberglass, and other surfaces as well.

This Thanksgiving, serve your appetizers and side dishes in Emerson Creek Pottery ceramic pieces that are handmade in Virginia and influenced by Early American designs. Emerson Creek Pottery offers different sizes and styles of serving trays to choose from, as well as dip bowls and cracker baskets. The  ‘Pinecones’, pictured below, and ‘Cranberry’ designs are perfect for both an American made Thanksgiving and Christmas party.
