Thanksgiving Entertaining Made Easy

Hosting Thanksgiving is so much fun. I didn’t always feel this way though! I used to love hosting, but I would drive my husband nuts with all of my stressing out! So, I came up with a few ideas to help me enjoy hosting more and stress out less!

First of all, I serve the dinner buffet style! Everyone can help themselves and I don’t have to stress about limiting the dishes on the table.

When I first got married I would whip out my fancy china for any holiday I hosted. Then I had kids and realized that I don’t have the time I once did. The china looked beautiful not the table, but it had to be hand washed, and let’s face it… I just don’t have that kind of time anymore.  So instead of doing this for every holiday, I save my fancy dishes for Christmas Day and opt for my dishwasher friendly ones for the other holidays.

Lastly, I keep the tablescape simple, using whatever I have on hand. You can read about some tablescape ideas here.

 

I hope these tips help!
