Serve delicious food. This is the star of the show, so make sure your food is well-prepared and presented

Don't forget the drinks. Have a variety of drinks available, including non-alcoholic options

Pace yourself. Don't feel like you have to rush through the meal.

Take breaks. If your kitchen is small or cramped, don't be afraid to take breaks throughout the day

Don't be afraid to ask for help. If you need help with anything, don't be afraid to ask your guests for assistance

Clean up as you go. This will make the cleanup process at the end of the day much easier

Let your guests help with the cleanup. If your guests offer to help with the cleanup, don't turn them down

Write thank-you notes. Send your guests thank-you notes for coming to your Thanksgiving dinner

This is a thoughtful way to end the holiday season.
