Thanksgiving Traditions

Do you use place cards for your Thanksgiving meal? I made these turkeys from Martha Stewart a few years ago and they were really fun and easy to make. This is something inexpensive and fun that you could do as a family and you probably have enough supplies around the house that you wouldn't even have to make a trip out.

What's your secret weapon to stay organized for your holiday meal? When deciding which holiday dishes to use place a slip of paper on each, noting its assigned role, and add the proper utensils. You'll be surprised how much time this saves when you are running around at the last minute getting your tables set. The labels will also assist any host's helpers in carrying out the plans, too. I've been doing this for years and it saves so much time.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition? Have you taken over the family meal preparation or do you still go to parents or another family member's homes to share your meal?

Wherever you spend your holiday, make it good one and give thanks.
