Along with finalizing your guest list, it is also important to note if any guests will be staying the night. With all of the cooking and prep needed for Thanksgiving, you’ll want to have things ready for your overnight guests.

All of the Food


Getting supplies and cooking the main dishes for Thanksgiving is a good way to be successful on this holiday. Don’t overwhelm yourself with having to handle all sorts of appetizers, drinks, sides, and desserts. Asking family members or friends to bring a side or dessert can really lighten food responsibilities as the host. This is also a great idea for getting a variety of foods on the dinner table. Maybe a friend is known for baking pie, or a cousin makes some killer mac and cheese.
