Seasonal table setting

Creating a fun table setting can make any dinner feel a bit more special, but there are many options when decorating for Thanksgiving.

Plan your Thanksgiving viewing

Make it a game night 

There are few better ways to bond with your friends and family than to sit down, relax, and play a board game or card game together! You can set aside a portion of your Thanksgiving gathering and dedicate it to playing board games, and even incorporate your guests into the process of choosing games to play! Setting out games for your guests to vote on playing, or even styling it like a pitch in (bring your own board game) can add an extra level of fun to your day! 

Thanksgiving pitch-in style! 

Hosting a Thanksgiving meal can be a huge event, and even feel like a daunting task to some. A fun way to include your guests in creating the Thanksgiving spread is to host a pitch-in style meal where each guest brings a dish, dessert, or snack to contribute!
