Thanksgiving beyond the meal

vanessa7 | Nov 19, 201811:01 AM     11

We are hosting our first Thanksgiving this year and I am trying to think about how to make it special beyond the meal. I am having my husband give a toast (hoping it will be a really great one!). I have these "I am thankful for" cards that I thought our families could fill out while they nibble on appetizers (I've seen them on the table, but it seems like that would get in the way of the food). Growing up, we would go around the table and share what we are thankful for, but I am not sure we will do that. We usually take a walk in the morning, but I like the idea of taking a walk after dinner too before dessert. I would love to hear your special touches to the day!
