Everything Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving Table Settings
“Long before the appetizer is served, your table will make a first impression with these ideas for place cards, centerpieces, linens, and more.”
New York Times
“Still uncertain about what kind of menu to plan for Thanksgiving? Choose from one of the following themes. After answering a few simple questions about your preferences regarding main dishes, sides, desserts and drinks, your menu will be planned for you. The results may be surprising.”
15 Fresh Salads for the Thanksgiving Table
“It has become something of a tradition for us to talk about salad right now, days before the Thanksgiving holiday. Yes, Thanksgiving is a literal feast of heavy, delicious foods like mashed potatoes swimming in butter (see our luxurious recipe here) and the sweetest flaky pies. But I think that a good salad is also essential.”
What’s the average cost of a Thanksgiving meal?
“The average cost of a 10-serving Thanksgiving dinner will cost $49.48 this year, according to a study by the American Farm Bureau Federation, a nonprofit grassroots organization advocating farmer interests. The group relied on 150 volunteer-shoppers across the country to price out traditional Thanksgiving menu items including turkey, rolls and pumpkin pie.”
