Thanksgiving Ideas For 2010

By Eugene Riggs

Thanksgiving is not far away. Before you know it, Thanksgiving 2010 will be upon us. Families gather together to reunite with loved ones and to give thanks for the blessings they have received. Make this Thanksgiving more enjoyable and less stressful for everyone by using these helpful suggestions and tips.

We gather together during this holiday not only to give thanks for our blessings but also to reunite with loved ones we do not see very often. Many of our relatives and loved ones will have to travel considerable distances to join us. This makes traveling during the holiday very stressful and even more so when there are children involved. Children become bored very easily and can make the trip even more stressful. Keep them busy by giving them a journal where they can write down their adventures during the trip. This will be a wonderful way to remember holidays past and will take some of their boredom away.

Fixing the holiday meal is stressful enough. Nevertheless, you also have guests arriving, a house to decorate, and shopping to do. The list never ends. Make it easier on yourself by preparing ahead of time. The week before Thanksgiving, make sure you have the room for the turkey and anything you can prepare ahead of time. Prepare your guest list, making notes of anyone bringing a covered dish so you do not make another one. The week of Thanksgiving, you can purchase non-perishable items like canned veggies and paper products. After this, you can prepare most of the dinner a few days before the holiday.

Make your table the center of attention by creating beautiful centerpieces. You can purchase many dried flowers, gourds, and other fall greenery from your local craft shop. The internet is a wonderful way to find some ideas on creative pieces for your table.

You can use the bounty of the harvest to give splashes of color throughout your house on mantles, shelves, and tables. String colored fall leaves to make a beautiful garland. Let the children be a part of the decorating crew by letting them make paper turkeys, pumpkins, and pilgrims. You can find decorating ideas from various craft magazines.

Don’t carry all the burden of planning! Remember to stop and say thanks for the family around you and let the Thanksgiving 2010 date be one to enjoy.
