Playing host for Thanksgiving is no easy feat — from planning the décor to meal prepping, there are an abundance of things to think about to create a memorable experience for your guests. But don’t fret — we’re here to help.
Whether you’re new to party planning or a seasoned host in need of some new ideas, here are some easy entertaining tips to make this Thanksgiving fun and stress-free.
Wow your guests with a chic tablescape that will set the mood. Transform your dining table with an updated tablecloth or add a table runner for that extra special touch. Swap out your regular dinnerware for seasonal plates and bowls to add a festive touch or elevate your current pieces by including cloth napkins housed in napkin rings. And don’t forget the centrepiece! A floral arrangement or pampas grass in a sleek vase will take your tablescape to the next level.
Create an inviting atmosphere for your guests with elegant décor. A fall wreath on your front door will set the stage, while subtle accents like painted pumpkins in a sophisticated hue and customized signs will give your space that cozy feel. Finally, scatter scented candles throughout your home to turn it into your own personal oasis.
Make this Thanksgiving a celebration to remember by incorporating some elevated entertaining essentials. Update any plastic pitchers for a glass serving drinks and have your guests sip in style with sleek wine and cocktail glasses. Grab ceramic serving dishes for any appetizers and cheeseboards with a set of cheese knives to create the perfect charcuterie spread.
Dress for the Occasion
Solidify yourself as the host with the most by dressing for the occasion. If you’re looking for something chic and casual, opt for a pair of dark wash jeans and a cozy cardigan or a fall shacket. Wanting to dress things up? Try a flowy dress for an elegant look that is still comfortable enough to move around in. And finally, treat yourself for prepping a Thanksgiving to remember by accessorizing with some designer pieces, like a cozy shawl or scarf that you can wear throughout the season.
