As a tribute to her late father, Julie hosts nearly 40 people every year on what was her father’s favorite holiday. As Thanksgiving Day approaches, this busy mom of three shares the five things she can’t live without.
“No Thanksgiving would be complete without the essential menu of roasted turkey, real mashed potatoes, sausage and sage stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and loads of desserts.”
2. Family & friends.
“My policy is always the more the merrier. Life is so very short. Hosting is the easiest way to show all the people I love how much I care for them.”
“I’m one of those people that must have music playing when I host a party or holiday. Colin Hay Radio on Pandora is the perfect vibe for a relaxing Thanksgiving get-together.”
4. A welcoming home.
“I always want my guests to feel as comfortable at my house as they do at their own. I love that our friends and family have a go-to spot on our couch.”
5. Red wine.
“I love red wine! A great glass of cabernet is the best way to end a day.”
