Fresh Ideas for the New Year
Host Thanksgiving on a Budget
Check out our strategies that can easily bring your friends together for the holidays without creating an economic crisis.
Beg, Borrow, or Steal
Problem: You don't have enough serving pieces and/or dishes.
Solution: Beg, borrow, or steal.
Before the big day, take inventory of what you have (plates, flatware, pots and pans, and glassware) and then make a wish list. Don't be shy: Ask friends and coworkers if they would mind if you borrowed a few glasses or a roasting pan. If you want to make everything look cohesive, go for an all-white table setting with white plates and platters.
Borrowing Hint: Hit up friends and family who are heading out of town. You know they won't be using their plates and silver pieces during the holiday.
