Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family, eat great homemade food, and have fun with your own traditions. But sometimes the host can feel overwhelmed with the thought of entertaining others. Follow these tips to get rid of these anxious feelings and enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday as much as your guests.
Assign Everyone a Job
In the weeks before Thanksgiving, be sure to send out an email to friends and families who will be attending with a list of foods, drinks, etc. that are needed for the party. This way, everyone can pick what they want to bring and you won’t be expected to fix an entire dinner yourself. Get the kids involved too! They may not all be able to cook, but they’re capable of cleaning. After dinner, have the little ones help with the dishes or clearing tables. The more hands that help, the quicker the clean up process.
