Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching and as families across Canada prepare to spend time together host and hostesses everywhere are starting to plan the menu, decorations and everything else to organize the perfect get together.
To help them prepare without the stress Oxiclean and celebrity home entertaining expert, Nicole Sassaman have put together a nifty tip sheet with some great tips on how to make Thanksgiving dinner preparation and cleanup an easy affair, as well as her own table setting tips for the big feast! I also had a chance to interview her and ask a few of my own questions. Here’s our full Q&A session:
OSM: What are your top 5 must haves items when preparing Thanksgiving dinner?
Nicole: Great table decor, nice plates, cooking dishes that are also serving dishes to save on cleaning, holiday music, nice mood lighting including candles, to go containers to send leftovers home with people for the day after, and of course a cleanup plan that includes OxiClean dish & laundry detergents!
OSM: How can you make Thanksgiving dinner clean up easier?
Nicole: If you have a laundry with a sink, I recommend clearing the table there and cleaning later so that you can enjoy your guests. Cook in serving containers to lessen the amount of dishes to clean. Pack to go containers for everyone and make sure all dishwashers are empty so you can load in quickly – make sure to use the OxiClean Extreme Power Crystals Dishwasher Detergent & OxiClean Dishwashing 2 in 1 Booster + Rinse Agent for clean & shiny dishes!
OSM: Give us your tips on getting the entire family involved and excited about helping prepare Thanksgiving dinner and helping clean up after!
Nicole: Have everyone bring their own dish. Have those to go containers handy to clean up and pack up leftovers quickly.
OSM: Any tips on how to set up the table for Thanksgiving dinner, any must haves?
Nicole: You must have fall leaves on your table and some gourds and mini pumpkins and candles to create a festive look. Anyone can do this and it makes a big difference!
