Mr. Event’s Three Tips for Thanksgiving entertaining
Can you believe we are in the midst of the holiday season? Does it bother anyone else that it is 100 degrees out? It seems very hard to get into the holiday spirit when I just spent a day at the beach and had to leave because it was too hot. Regardless, the holidays are here and I want to share some of my favorite tips for entertaining.
Tip 1: Get funky with shapes
Did you know that most rental companies carry a variety of shaped china? The days of only round plates are way over. Atlas has this amazing Triangle china set that would be perfect to serve all of your delicious pies on. You know by now that presentation matters and a triangle shaped pie slice on a triangle plate is sure to get you major detail points.
Tip 2: Don’t limit yourself to fall colors
Let’s get crazy here people and use a pop of pink on our Thanksgiving table. No one ever said we had to use the colors of nature in our holiday table design. The holidays are all about fun and family. Use your Thanksgiving table to express yourself and your style. Think about the things you are thankful for and use that as inspiration for your table décor. If you asked me, I would say I am thankful for color and I love seeing it used on a table!
Tip 3: Don’t be afraid to call the professionals
There is nothing wrong with calling in a caterer to help with your feast. I get it, part of the Thanksgiving cheer is cooking in the kitchen and reminiscing with family about yesteryear. However, you don’t need to sweat over cooking the perfect turkey just to laugh and smile about the past. Imagine all of the time you would have to spend with the family if you called in a called in a caterer to do the cooking. Try it once and let us know how it goes.
Now that you have our top three tips all that there is left to do is add your guests!
