By now you should not be surprised that BJ’s Wholesale Club is my go-to one-stop shop for almost everything. This is going to be my first-year hosting Thanksgiving and I could not be any more excited! Typically, I travel but this year, I wanted to start a tradition of my own. Since this is a first for me, there couldn’t be a better place other than BJ’s to get all my holiday essentials. I decided to start my holiday prep a little early to ensure that I have all the items I need for Thanksgiving.
If you have been keeping up with my adventures at BJ’s, you may have read about their exclusive brands, Berkley Jensen and Wellsley Farms. If you’re new, head over to this post to learn more. I always rave about their Wellsley Farms brand, but Berkley Jensen also has amazing finds when it comes to home items such as health and beauty products, paper goods and even their seasonal whiteware.
Walking into BJ’s around the holidays is a sight to see. From holiday decor on one side to the nicely organized whiteware section. The atmosphere in BJ’s made my holiday spirit rise tremendously. Since this is my first-time hosting Thanksgiving, I figured I would be proactive and start with getting the essentials that I need.
After browsing around the club, rather than picking up my holiday food items because let’s face it, it is a bit early to stock up on food, I decided to check out their exclusive Berkley Jensen whiteware and serving sets. This is a collection of entertaining pieces that are perfect for the holiday season.
I could not believe the amazing selection of whiteware my local BJ’s had at an incredible value! I picked up a few items that for me, are a must-have, especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner.
While roaming through the aisle, I came across the 6 Piece Lazy Susan Serving Set with a Bamboo Tray. The dishes are porcelain and removable and what I love is that the bamboo tray rotates in either direction making it easily accessible for my guests. Believe it or not, this was under $20 with a clipless coupon. I could not pass this up.
What is a gathering without a charcuterie board? I always find charcuterie boards to be a must-have for parties and I know that I must have one for my upcoming gatherings. When I saw the display of the Berkley Jensen 7 Piece Charcuterie Set, I realized that I didn’t own one so I had to pick this up! It is a perfect size and has everything that you need for a perfect charcuterie board.
Although I said that I found enough items, for now, I saw a simple Berkley Jensen 3 Tier Bowl Set with Metal Stand, exclusive to BJ’s. I know that this will come in handy for storing my fresh fruit. Some things you can’t say no to.
Wine lovers, did you know that BJ’s has their own brand of wine glasses? The Berkley Jensen Wine Glass Set comes in a set of eight and they look like high-end expensive wine glasses. These are multi-use wine glasses, meaning they can be used for either white, red or even a rosé wine. I could not believe the quality and how sturdy they felt. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with having too many wine glasses. *cheers*
Lastly, I could also not say no to their exclusive Berkley Jensen 6 in 1 Glass Server. It is a versatile server that works as an hors d’oeuvres plate with a dip server, salad bowl, crudité with dip server and of course, a cake dome with a lid! Regardless of what you use this for, it will make a wonderful centerpiece.
I am ready to go for my Thanksgiving and holiday gatherings. Everything was conveniently found at BJ’s. They have a ton of other options to select from. I especially loved their exclusive Berkley Jensen brand of products for all your household and whiteware items you will need this upcoming holiday season. Stay tuned to see my entire Thanksgiving spread on Instagram.
