Your Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet

Monday, November 25, 2013

You've put together a menu, fought the crowds at the grocery store, pulled tables and seating from storage, cleaned the house and washed your table linens.  At this point all you want to do is collapse somewhere soft and have your favorite drink placed in your hand.  Unfortunately you still have a ways to go.  There is still a meal to cook and a table to set.  Hosting a Holiday dinner is not for the faint of heart.  The "To-Do" list doesn't end until everyone is home safely and the last dish is washed.  Playing hostess can be chaotic and you may feel that the small details are falling through the cracks.  This is the time where we could all really use a hand.  Luckily there's a whole world out there that understands this frustration and has great advice.  I've gathered a few quick tips and tricks to help with the details of setting your Holiday table.

Seasonal white pumpkins can take your place setting to a new level of style.   

It's all in the details.  Adding a seasonal quote to an inexpensive white plate adds a special touch to your Holiday table.

Forgot your place card holders?  Take a look in your pantry.  Simple walnuts are easy and adorable.

Transform seasonal pumpkins and gourds with a can of gold spray paint.  This is a quick and easy way to add some glamour to your table.

Will you have more guests than you have china?  Don't be afraid to mix it up and add dishes of a different style to increase place settings.

The ultimate cheat sheet for a proper table setting.

Did you get stuck hosting Thanksgiving at the last minute?  See this Holiday Dinner Guide for a ready made menu that's sure to please.

As we prepare for this Holiday season I'll be gathering as many helpful Holiday guides as possible.
