The last several years I’ve had the honor of hosting Thanksgiving dinner. My partner does all the cooking and I’m responsible for set up and break down. I came across this really nice (and expensive) plastic plates and silverware set at BJ’s the other day. I was thinking, maybe I’ll use plastic!
Now, I have a beautiful table with William Sonoma table cloth and napkins. Awesome candles, Lenox salt and pepper shakers, and an incredible center piece. So I was thinking using plastic would take away from the ambiance. However, I don’t have a set of 12 matching plates or silverware. So I would have to invest a lot of money in buying a new set. From a cleanup perspective, plastic would save a ton of time too. It’s almost like I’m talking myself into it as I write this.
I think as long as the food is good, the family is relaxing, and everyone has a full belly…who cares what you eat on! Right?
Regardless of whether you are hosting or traveling (hopefully none of you are traveling for work), I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
