I am so so very excited to announce that I will be assisting (which means probably organizing 90% ha) of my BF's Thanksgiving Dinner for his family! Yeah me and yeah us! This will be his first year hosting dinner for his family at his house since his divorce (sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews and his children). I am over the top excited for this dinner! But, since he has been a bachelor for so long there are a lot of things we need to purchase in order to host a nice family dinner. He has mismatched dishes, plastic cups and ZERO tablecloths! I am going to join in with the Friday 5 link-ups to brainstorm what he needs to buy for this dinner! HA HA
1. Glasses! We will be hosting 16 people (us included) and I think he has about 8 GLASS glasses and the rest are mismatched plastic. We definitely need to find some nice glasses!
These look perfect!!!
2. Placemats! Again, he has none and we are hosting a lot of people so I think it is only appropriate we get a place mat for everyone,,,right?
These are really nice!
3. Tablecloth! I think he has one tablecloth that could be a little Thanksgivingly (is that a word?? HA). The problem is that we will be having two tables of people so we definitely are going to need two matching tablecloths. I love this one!!
4. Plates! I think we will go with classy plastic dishes this year. I hate to have him buy dishes and have nowhere to store them all year so I think I am going to recommend to him that we do what my family does. We use the pretty plastic ones...high end of course - HA! (Update: I just bought these!!!)
What are all of you doing for Thanksgiving?
Cooking or eating out? With family or enjoying quiet alone time?
Traditional stuffing or does your family like the new-fangled recipes??
Join in on the link up fun with the ladies below!!!!
