We've been doing lots of cleaning, organizing and meal prep. So far, I have the menu planned out and it's long, but what we have to do looks manageable. Our families are all helping out and bringing dishes, so it's going to be a great mix of food that everyone loves.
Here's our menu:
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Caramel Corn & Assorted Nuts
Roasted Brined Turkey
Green Bean Casserole
Macaroni & Cheese
Sweet Potato Casserole
Cranberry Salad & Sauce
Croissants & Yeast Rolls
Chocolate Chess Pie
Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake
I even put the menu up on our chalkboard in the kitchen for everyone to see.
I've also been working on the tablescape for the tables. I'm going to do centerpieces of pumpkins with flowers in the middle, that look like this:
I'm also going to have assorted gourds with place cards attached on a napkin in the middle of the plate at each setting, similar to this:
I've already started working on these, I think they'll be really cute. Plus, I love how some of the gourds are so unique!
Tonight I'm going to work on cleaning and more prep for Thursday. I'm also going to try to get all of my trays, baking dishes, platters, and serveware out to see if there is anything that I need!
I hope everyone has a wonderful, short work week! :)
