countdown to thanksgiving...

The holidays are creeping up on us and the calendar is already filling up with party invites. It seems almost impossible to live in the moment. Although there is a part of me that wants to just take it easy and enjoy this time of year, there are things that need to be done. By now you should have a good idea of what you are doing this Thanksgiving. If you are hosting, you need to start planning now, if you haven’t already started. Here's a short checklist of things that will get you started on the road to a successful and less-stressful Thanksgiving:

  • Confirm your guest list and send out those invites!
  • Put together your meal plan. Do you have enough space in your oven for more than one item? Do you need multiple stove-top burners at the same time? Plan accordingly.
  • Order or purchase your turkey. Make sure the turkey is going to fit in your oven.
  • Order flowers in advance so that you have the perfect arrangement.
  • Check your seating. Do you need to rent or borrow a table and chairs?
  • Take inventory of your equipment to ensure that you have enough for all of your guests (dinnerware, silverware, serving items, linens, etc.)
