Hosting Thanksgiving can be daunting - especially if your guest list extends beyond your close family. Keep the day fun and low-stress by thinking through a few details ahead of time.
Make sure to ask your guests ahead of time about any dietary restrictions, preferences, or allergies. Including a variety of dishes, including vegetarian and gluten-free options will make sure everyone can enjoy the feast
without discomfort. (This goes for drinks, too. If you plan to serve alcohol, make sure you have non-alcoholic options too!)
Thanksgiving is all about gratitude! It's a family tradition to each share a few things that we're grateful for. It's a simple and fun way to get everyone involved in the conversation (kids, too!)
Depending on the type of crowd you're hosting, consider using name cards! Thanksgiving is a fun excuse to get a little fancy with your tablescape, and name cards can help you avoid the awkward dance of everyone deciding where to sit.
