And with delectable recipes, we’ll ascertain everyone has a dish on the table they can’t wait to devour—from the sweet potato casserole to the turkey we all spend the other 364 days of the year dreaming about.
A Seasonal Space
When your guests arrive on Thanksgiving, make sure to impress them with fall-themed decorations throughout the house. If you have any pumpkins that you didn’t carve for Halloween, they make great décor for your front porch. You can even use a pint-sized pumpkin or gourd for a fun festive touch to an entry table or cabinet.
For décor you can use at the table year after year, pick up a few autumnal-colored candles and a long table runner to help set the seasonal mood for your family’s feast. These accent pieces may not seem like much, but keeping the table décor minimal leaves more room for food.
If you expect to watch a parade or football game after the big feast, garnish your entertainment center with a seasonal ivy vine. These pops of color can be incorporated in all sorts of areas in your home like shelves in your china cabinet to the tops of your kitchen cabinets.
