Tips for Hosting a Successful Thanksgiving Dinner
- Tall centerpieces on your table may be visually stunning, but consider that your guests won’t be able to see each other very well across the table and it may hinder conversation (depending on the family this may be a good thing actually…).
- Don’t forget to leave some room on the table for side dishes and drinks.
- Set the mood with soft music.
- If you have a fireplace, have it on.
- It’s customary (and courteous) to bring the host/hostess a small gift or token as a thank you for all their hard work.
- Cook as much as possible the day before, so you’re not scrambling to get everything done in time for Thanksgiving dinner. The only thing I cook on Thanksgiving morning is the turkey itself (but I make sure to get it in a brine the night before.)
- If you will be eating over carpet, Scotch Guard your dining area carpets to protect from inevitable spills.
