gratitude: a feeling of appreciation and thanks


November 24, 2015

The week leading up to Thanksgiving is almost as fun as the actual day. Filled with fun recipes and friends, one of our favorite events to throw is our annual friendsgiving. Today we are providing you with a few tips that help keep things calm and organized to ensure you have a great time!

Delegate: As the host you should take responsibility for the main dish, but it’s more than appropriate to delegate out the other items. Think appetizers, sides, salads, desserts and drinks. Give people a genre or type of food but let them get creative!

Rally a few people to arrive early: Select 2 or 3 people you know will be on top of things to help you before your dinner begins. Whether they need to set things out, re-heat items as people arrive or set up the specialty cocktail bar it’s good to have a few people arrive early who know exactly what to do.

Set the table a couple of days before: If you can afford to, set the table early and get it out of the way. Even set any glasses or hot pads you may need for the table and check that box off so it’s one less thing to worry about.

Simple Touches: Don’t overdue it, but get creative and add some simple elements to give your guests that cozy feeling of the holidays. Light candles or bake chocolate chip cookies before your guests arrive to keep your house smelling incredible!

Happy Holidays!
