At our house, there’s a flurry of activity to get Thanksgiving dinner on the table. I try to be as prepared in advance as I can, but there are always last-minute things to do—rolls to take out of the oven, stuffing to take off the stove, little feet to shoo out of the kitchen.
In other words, if you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner, you’ve got your hands full! Of course, that doesn’t mean it has to be stressful.
I’ve got you covered with my favorite Thanksgiving recipes, simple Thanksgiving table settings, easy-to-make Thanksgiving centerpiece, and all of my best Thanksgiving entertaining tips. So take a deep breath, because you’ve got this!

This Thanksgiving word search is the perfect addition to every place setting because both adults and children can play along!
Bonus! Because I can’t help but make even the most utilitarian items feel a touch special, of course I designed it with classic style in mind. I think it ended up being just as pretty to look at as it was fun to play along with.
