Stress-Free Holiday Entertaining Tips: Setting the Thanksgiving Table

No doubt, Thanksgiving is the thing many of us are spending quite a bit of time thinking about right about now. Can you believe it’s just a couple of weeks away? I know I sure can’t. If you’re hosting this year, there’s also a good chance that right about now is the time you’re starting to stress over the whole deal. My advice on all of that? Don’t stress! A general rule of thumb I like to live by when it comes to entertaining family and friends for Thanksgiving dinner? Keep it simple — and as long as you have enough mashed potatoes to go around, everything will be perfect!

Speaking specifically about the Thanksgiving table, I thought it would be fun to share my easy tips for setting a beautiful table that is easy to pull off and pretty much stress-free. Because we all love stress-free, don’t we? I always go for my favorite white dinnerware (because it matches with everything) and invite guests to indulge freely by staging all the food along a sideboard or a secondary table. Then it’s just all about a few simple touches (like cloth napkins and pretty little pine cones) and you’re good to go.

Check out my story below for these easy, stress-free tips for setting the Thanksgiving table, and happy Thanksgiving!
