Thanksgiving plan

Here are some essential tips for planning the big meal and pulling it off without a hitch.

  • Figure out your floor plan and what you will need, such as folding tables and chairs, glasses, plates and cutlery.
  • Plan your party menu: identify the dishes you can make ahead of time and freeze; establish your timetable for dish preparation; and make a list of items you already have on hand.
