1. invite the people you love to Dinner, Do Not allow anybody to be alone during the holidays.
2. set up the table extra special:
layer your table cloth with lace, use a variety of candles in the same color scheme, use old wine bottles for candle holders, or use brass ones that have been passed down from family. I like to use goblets, and mis matched dishes. I like gold, greens, and yellows. paper chandeliers are a must. (click here)
I like to incorporate feathers into everything.
3. dress up a little it makes everyone feel a little fancy. I like to have a rack of furs, feather crowns, and masks for guests to pick from.
4. make sure to have a good selection of wine, or sparkling grape juice for toasts.
5. have snacks to nibble on while guests arrive and while dinner is still being prepared.
6. have a fun playlist to set the mood.
7. have scraps of paper and pens around the table for everyone to write what they are thankful for.
8. random touches of nature like pine cones and branches add such a warm feeling.
9. make it pot luck and ask everyone to bring their recipe.
10. keep traditional dishes but start your own as well. (we now add enchiladas to the mix) Thanks Taylor for learning Great Grandma's recipe!
11. have tupperware so everyone goes home with a plate (leftovers are AWESOME!)
***EVERYONE SHOULD HELP CLEAN AFTER***
no fighting with your sisters or brothers for everyones sake:)
