Hosting Thanksgiving this year? We know you’re freaking out about the turkey, so we’ll handle the table decor.
We all know the feeling: The panic of having thought you could host Thanksgiving in your brand new place, and then the sudden realization that you actually have no idea what the hell you’re doing…
When does the stuffing go in? What do I do with this thermometer thing? Why doesn’t my pumpkin pie taste as good as mom’s??
Yes—cooking a Thanksgiving feast is quite the challenge, and we’re sorry, but we’d really be no help in that arena. But what we do know is decor.
So while you’re flipping through endless cookbooks and searching for your grandma’s secret green bean casserole recipe, you can save time by ordering instant digital gift cards to your favorite local merchants, and then use them to deck those halls OUT… Turkey Day style.
We’ll tell you where to go with your gift cards to get the look, then all you “have” (read: get) to do is shop your hostess stress away.
