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
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.
