Happy Thanksgiving and Last Minute Tips

As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday this week, Emerald Homes would like to share a special message of thanks. We’re thankful for your continued trust in us to build the places you call home where you make lasting memories with your loved ones. We want to wish you an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday and share last minute helpful tips for the day.

Between preparing the turkey and all of the delicious sides to go with it, you might forget to decorate your home. Not to worry! Brit + Co offers advice for last minute décor inspiration with things you may already have at home with pumpkin place cards, an easy pinecone wreath, and helpful printed food labels.

What if you’ve been so focused on cooking the most perfect turkey that you forgot the sides? We can help there too. The Food Network has popular recipes for side dishes you can make in 30 minutes or less! With less time spent cooking you can enjoy more time with your guests.

If you plan on having little ones at your feast, it’s best to have a designated kids’ table. To give the grownups time to enjoy their Thanksgiving meal without having to check on the kids, we recommend these kids’ table activities from Country Living. They’ll be busy until the dessert course!

We hope these tips help take the stress out of your holiday gathering. We wish you the best as you prepare for Thanksgiving Day!
