3 Easy Tips for Planning a Successful Thanksgiving Party


Are you ready to host an unforgettable Thanksgiving party? If you want to “wow” your family, friends and guests this holiday, we have a few tips and tricks that can help take your party to the next level.

Here are our top three tips for planning the perfect Thanksgiving party.

A Little Decorating Goes a Long Way You’ll likely be putting your kitchen to work all day, but you can spruce up that dining room table with a minimal amount of effort. Cute place cards for every one of your guests and a beautiful centerpiece are small additions to your table setup that can have a big impact.

Shake Things up on Your Menu Your guests will undoubtedly be expecting a tasty selection of delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts while they’re at your home, but that doesn’t mean you only have to serve the usual turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie (although, we do love all of those, too!). Consider trying some easy alternatives to traditional favorites or shake things up completely by serving your guests some of these unexpected yet delectable dishes.

Get Crafty Whether you make them before or during your party, Thanksgiving- and fall-themed crafts are a great way to add another fun element to your party, and they’re an easy way to keep the kids busy! If you need some inspiration for what to make, Better Homes and Gardens can help you get started.
