Thanksgiving Day is full of fun, love, excitement, and immense pressure for certain individuals. Good thing the tenants at Annapolis Town Center can set you up for success, no matter if you are a host or a guest. Check out our best tips for either role you may play this holiday season.

For Hosts

Turkey Day is by far one of the most treasured holidays of the year, but for hosts – it can be one of the most stressful days as well. With so many moving parts, a stacked guest list, and the 21st-century expectations of table decor – your head could be spinning before you even begin! So, let’s start with the basics and break down which tenant should be your go-to stop. 

Table settings and decor can be simple or elaborate, depending on your preference. Get started with personalized invitations straight from Paper Source. When you start here you can streamline a look for the entire Thanksgiving experience. Liking pairing the invitations with day-of personalized napkins and place cards. Next, head to ArHaus for the perfect table runner and drink glasses to cheers the evening away. They pair beautifully with Smyth Jewelers’ timeless serving platters, knife sets, and salad bowls. Don’t sweat the small stuff with the help of Bed Bath & Beyond. Get your table accents like pumpkins, flowers, garland, and long-stemmed candles. You can even welcome your guests with a Thanksgiving-inspired outdoor welcome mat.


What is Thanksgiving without the food?! Most families create dishes of their past for the present. So, Whole Foods may be your only needed stop for the best variety in ingredients. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t start some new tasty traditions. Sop in True Food Kitchen to purchase their Recipe Book. Seasonally changing, this book may have just the missing dish to complete your table. Feeling a bit overwhelmed yet? Cheat the system and let our property restaurants take the reins. With a plethora of dining options for all palettes, you can easily order ahead of time and pick up just before guests arrive (giving you enough time to put the dishes in your own serving bowls and plates)! 

For Guests

If you are not hosting the dinner yourself, practicing your best guest etiquette should be your top priority. In most instances, guests are required to simply show up with an empty stomach. Though, it is always polite and recommended to bring something small to show your appreciation to the host. Maybe their favorite bottle of liquor or wine from Bin201. A seasonally fragranced candle from Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, or one of the many home furnishings stores. You can even prep them for the next holiday with a wine-themed 12 Nights of Christmas advent calendar from Cooper’s Hawk. Or, grab the latest in accessory fashion fun! No matter your choice, our variety of tenants can provide you with what you need.

If you happen to take part in a potluck-style dinner hosted at someone else’s residence, then you know choosing the right dish to appease all in attendance is crucial. Start at Whole Foods where the ingredients are endless and the pre-made food can be the answer to your holiday prayers. From specialty appetizers in a variety of serving sizes to prepped charcuterie boards and aisles of delicious, healthy food options, Whole Foods can easily become your one-stop-shop. Be sure to pop in Target to help get those side dishes prepared the best way possible with the latest in cooking supplies, and looking fancy in their decorated serving dishes and side bowls. You will be sure to “wow” others with your Martha Stewart or Joanna Gaines-esque skills.

New community gathering areas, art, events and tenants bring fresh vitality to iconic community destination


ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (Feb. 5, 2020) – A significant transformation is underway at Annapolis Town Center, the 659,158-square-foot outdoor mixed-use center in Annapolis, Md. Over the course of the last 16 months, the property has seen a number of strategic enhancements designed to add vitality and improve customer experience.

Among the changes are new community gathering areas with comfortable seating and fire pits, as well as the addition of murals by local artists throughout the center. In addition to aesthetic improvements, the property also launched new event programming throughout 2019, including Fall Fest, Fire & Ice, and Santa’s Cottage, providing the Annapolis community new opportunities to make memories with families and friends.

On the leasing front, new stores and restaurants are expanding to the already unique tenant mix. Home furnishings retailer Z Gallerie opened in January, and a new marquee restaurant – True Food Kitchen – will open later this year.

“Our new signature events and community-focused amenities have resulted in higher foot traffic to the property, attracting new brands excited about the property’s growing success,” said Anthony Henry, Annapolis Town Center General Manager. “It is our goal to create a variety of offerings and experiences that today’s consumer wants, whether it be through art, entertainment, dining or commerce. We have a lot in store for 2020 with new events planned and new businesses joining us. We are ready for a great year, and this is just the beginning.”

Since then, Trademark has spent time listening to the market as part of a visioning process that brings together experts in retail, design and placemaking to develop a strategic plan and vision for the property’s future.  Repositioning efforts will continue with additional enhancements, leasing efforts and community-centric experiences in the coming months.
