SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- (Good Things Utah) The time has come! In just three weeks from today, Thanksgiving will be here. While the holidays are a great time to reconnect and catch up with loved ones, it can be overwhelming and exhausting. Brooklyn Madsen from Home with Brooklyn shares the best tips to make your holidays go smooth.

Creating a tablespace really help sets the mood. Madsen has ample inspiration on Instagram where you can have your guest feel comfortable, cared for and cozy, a must for the holiday season. Make sure there’s plenty of space at the table for everyone, especially after the big feast. Along with that big appetite, Madsen shares what you’ll need to bring to the table.

In addition to making sure your guests have enough room and space, consider their needs. Ensure your guests are in a setting that makes them feel safe and homey. Consider how many guests will be in attendance. A great tablecloth, runner or base is sure to set the mood and add class to your table setting. While everyone’s eyes will be on the meal, adding a stunning centerpiece creates an elevated space that will make your table look fuller and help compliment your dinner. Madsen has elegantly set up a six top table setting with pumpkins, which is simple yet stylish for a Autumn Harvest. Place settings complete with names and a plate with a touch of your own personality and distinctive touch will go a long way and help your friends and extended family feel at home.
