Thanksgiving is creeping up to us and it’s time to start thinking about hosting your family & friends for the holidays. Don’t overwhelm yourself, it’s not meant to be stressful. By preparing ahead of time and coming up with dishes and decor ideas that are simple & easy to make, you can eliminate half the work and spend the other half relaxing.
Start with your decor. One of my favorite DIY’s that we’ve featured for fall has been our Thanksgiving centerpiece craft.
Another option for preparing your home for the Thanksgiving holiday would be to stock up on some pumpkins and display them nicely on your front porch.
For food ideas, before your guests arrive, make these delicious Apple & Sweet Potato Mash Toppers. They are extremely easy to make and only required 4 things. It took hardly any time and it turned out delish.
Nabisco has made it even easier to host a party this holiday season with their “Bring Home The Holidays With The Ultimate Party Planner.” You can view the NABISCO Party Planner where they provide delicious and various sweet and savory recipes using some of their products (such as OREO Cookies, RITZ Crackers, NILLA Wafers, etc.), and you don’t have to be a pro to make them!
