7 Things to Do This Weekend
- Locate the china, vases, candlesticks, roasting pan and any other items you might need for the big meal.
- Put sticky notes on the serving dishes you plan to use, and pair up each with serving utensils.
- Get as much of your shopping done as possible, and write up a cooking timetable for Thanksgiving day.
- Test your tablescape ideas: Can you see over the centerpiece? Is there room for all of the place settings?
