Give Thanks

A Time For Family, Sharing, Caring and Giving Thanks!

Holidays are a special time of year where great memories are created and are cherished for years to come. Turkey day is less than a month away. Lots of planning to be done between now and then; from what’s for dinner, to what time are we eating, to how many we are feeding this year?

Thanksgiving Day is a special time to count your blessings and be thankful for your family, your great friends, caring co-workers and those that love and support you. Be thankful for the wonderfully amazing events that have happened since the last holiday.

If you are planning on hosting Thanksgiving dinner for a large number of people, then setting up buffet style is the way to go. Create an unforgettable, eye catching buffet table by using bamboo display fixtures such as table risers, beverage dispenser, chafers and more. Let’s start with our beverage table first:

Beverage StationCreate a beverage station as pictured to the left by using two of our Square Bamboo Base Beverage Dispensers. This dispenser comes in either two or four gallon capacity size with an optional drip tray. Add the modern shelving to connect the two dispensers and use for displaying such items as cups, straws, beverage napkins or more. This exquisite four-sided beverage dispenser features a removable top loading ice chamber that releases a downward cooling chill that keeps your drinking liquids cool until the last drop. The top portion of the dispenser is made of high-quality acrylic material. Design your own juice bar, also ideal for spas and more.

Bamboo CoolerOur Bamboo Ice Housing unit is 6” wide x 7” deep x 6.5” high that includes the inside pan. Use this sophisticated display in a variety of ways for your party or buffet line. Create a self-serve drink table and have available perfectly chilled prepackaged drinks like juice, cans, and bottles of various types and sizes. Not only use this for your beverages, also keep small finger foods like sushi or desserts cold until ready to serve. The bin is removable for easy cleaning.

Cold JarNeed a place to keep cut fruit cold at the bar, or ice cream toppings chilled at the dessert table? Try our Bamboo Cold Jar Display. This beautiful display includes three jars, lids and the cooling pucks that sit perfectly inside their cut-outs in the bamboo base. This bamboo jar display can be used for a variety of occasions and ingredients.

Bagel StationServe up some bagels, cookies, fruit and more to your guests the morning of Thanksgiving with ease by using this 2-Tier Bamboo Column w/Acrylic Drawers. This two-stack container features acrylic drawers with steel handles and the case is built from a durable 3-ply cross grain natural bamboo for an eco-friendly and natural appeal. So take up less counter space by utilizing this display for more reasons.

Food WarmerThe perfect planning for dinner is to have everything done and out on the table at the same time, but that in not always the case. Keep your food fresh and warm by storing your hot foods in one of our Eco Modern Chafer’s. This very attractive server includes the pan and stainless steel cover gives easy access to the food at serving time. Make use of this eco-friendly chafer for any occasion year round and enjoy fresh warm food every time.

Table RisersDress up your Thanksgiving dinner buffet table by adding some of Candy Concepts table risers. Table risers add height and diversity to the appeal of your dining experience. The Bamboo Square Crate Risers come in three various heights to choose from. Choose all three for a more diverse appearance. Bamboo table risers also come in cube and rectangular shapes. When you’re not using your risers, use as an extra storage bin by turning them upside down bin.

Dessert DisplayDesserts are one of the highlights for turkey day! But by the time you finish stuffing yourself with all the trimmings you’re too full to indulge in the sweet deliciousness of dessert. Display your home baked desserts tastefully with our Bamboo Cupcake Display! This eco-friendly display features three tiers. It’s sleek and stylish design is made for you to customize the perfect dessert presentation for your guest. It is easy to set-up and tear-down when you need to use it for another special occasion.
