Thanksgiving Entertaining

5-tips-for-thanksgiving-entertaining

 

Thanksgiving entertaining is an American tradition.  A celebration of beloved foods and customs.  They evoke happy memories of time spent with family and friends. To make sure your dinner party runs smoothly, have a plan for how you’d like the evening to go.  Do as much as you can ahead of time to allow yourself a little more time to eliminate feeling pressured.  You don’t have to spend a fortune on decorations to dress up your table, you just have to know where to shop.  Try places like Michael’s, Target and Dollar Tree.  A great party starts with a great host.  It is the job of the host to make sure the environment is warm and inviting and that guests feel welcomed.

Below are 5 simple practical tips to make your Thanksgiving entertaining a memorable event.
