Thanksgiving is just a little over two weeks away. So if you’re planning to host dinner, NOW is the time to start preparing. Last week I shared the list of table decor that if you do not already own, you may want to place that Amazon order. You can see the list HERE. Once you have the decor on order, now it’s time to start washing and cleaning. Take a look…
Saturday morning started with me emptying the sideboard and washing all the Thanksgiving dishes. This, of course, is way more than we’ll need, but I only use these dishes once a year and they all needed washing.
Then I moved on to washing all of the imitation greenery. I do not exactly have a green thumb so rarely keep live plants around the house. I do, however, love green and have plenty of imitation greens scattered around the house.
To wash imitation greenery, fill the kitchen sink with warm water and a small amount of dish soap. Hold the “plant” upside down and swish it around to wash off any dust, then rinse. Avoid getting water into the fake “dirt” and pot/basket.
Lay the plants on their sides on cotton towels to catch excess water and keep it from dripping back into the pot/basket.
For larger floor plants you may have to wash them in the shower/tub.
Washing the dishes and plants well in advance of Thanksgiving will get you ahead of the house cleaning and allow you to focus on the baking and the kids.
Happy November friends.
