Keep It Simple
For a meal that already requires days of prep, serving food buffet-style is a surefire way to lighten the load on the hostess. And on a holiday that's as food-centric as Thanksgiving, there's no better way to give guests the freedom to come back for a second (and third!) helping of their favorite dishes. I set up my buffet on a vintage wood sideboard. This is a great time to get creative and think about repurposing furniture from other parts of the house — an old dresser, desk or even a wood door propped up on sawhorses would make a perfect buffet.
