Yes it’s that time of year again – time to start thinking about holiday parties at work. If your workplace is putting on a Thanksgiving holiday party this year, then we’ve got just the list to help you brainstorm what you want to bring to help celebrate. This list compiles simple, easily transportable recipes that will be sure to light up your Thanksgiving work party.

Fall Snacks and Drinks to Bring for Your Thanksgiving Work Party

Flavored granola

Whether store bought or homemade, granola is an easy snack to bring in that anyone can enjoy. There are so many different fall-flavored variations that you can make at home or find at your local grocery store. Granola transports easily and can be left out all day to keep the Thanksgiving work party going.

Pumpkin dip

Pumpkin dip is a great fall treat that only takes about 5 ingredients to make. It’s easy to make in large batches and transports super conveniently. You can use just about anything you have on hand to dip in it, making it a great option for any Thanksgiving work party.

Dipped pretzels

Dipped pretzels can be found in stores, or you can make them yourself. Though they may be a bit time consuming to make if you work in a large office, they’re the perfect fall sweet and salty snack. Decorate them to your heart’s content with all the seasonal colors if you want, and watch people fall all over this treat.

Dipped apples/pears

These are similar to dipped pretzels, but dipped apples or pears offer a bit more sweetness. They also make great use of seasonal produce. They are harder to find in a grocery store but are very easy to make at home if it’s something you think your workplace would love.

Candied pecans

If granola sounds a little too involved to be able to whip up in time for your Thanksgiving work party, then candied pecans (or any type of nut) may be more your speed. These are easy to make in large batches and only take about 15 minutes to make from start to finish.


Apple cider

This classic drink is probably the easiest item to bring in on this list. While you can make it yourself, we suggest finding a local orchard and buying from them. A couple gallons of apple cider will have everyone feeling the fall mood.

Thanksgiving punch

There are a few different variations of Thanksgiving punch, but most involve the same base seasonal ingredients. Combine apple cider, cranberry juice, ginger ale, cinnamon sticks, and some fresh fruit slices of your choosing (the most common being apples, oranges, and pears). This can easily be made in large quantities and can be made ahead of your party so that transportation problems are eliminated.

Ginger and apple spritzer

This drink is the easiest to make at home on this list. All it takes is two simple ingredients and you’ve got yourself a workplace favorite. Combine your desired ratio of apple cider and ginger beer, mix, and you’re done. This can be made at your workplace the day of the Thanksgiving party or can be made the night before. Either way, your coworkers will be sure to love this festive drink.

Non-alcoholic sangria

This drink is similar to the Thanksgiving Punch, but non-alcoholic sangria involves a few more ingredients. The most common recipes for this drink involve cranberry juice, orange juice, and your choice of apple or grape juice. You can also slice fresh oranges, lemons, limes and add those in, as well as cranberries. This drink would be best to make the night before, so that you can enjoy your Thanksgiving work party without worrying about making the drink that day.

Pumpkin apple punch

Pumpkin apple punch is a fun twist on classic fall flavors that will be sure to be a hit at your workplace. This recipe combines pumpkin puree, apple cider, ginger ale, and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. This drink will also be easier to serve if it’s made the night before your work party.

Regardless of which recipe you choose to bring to your Thanksgiving work party, all of these are great options. Each of these treats offers a taste of fall that will be sure to light up your workplace. Happy Thanksgiving!
