It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Start your preparation now for a stress-free entertaining season.

I always suggest you do a buffet. I like to arrange the food on the sideboard. This way your guests feel comfortable to get up and help themselves to more, and you don’t have to bother with the hassle of passing hot dishes around the table. For the buffet, build up your arsenal of wonderful platters. Food always looks so pretty on big platters and platters are great things to collect on your travels or trips to the local crafts fair. Treillage sells the neatest real pine baskets that are great for a buffet too. Line them with a pretty colored napkin and use them to serve bread or to hold flatware.

Speaking of napkins, Treillage just started to carry lovely linen napkins with a picot trim edge. Believe it or not, they can be custom colored! Use them with a coordinating linen placemat or a printed tablecloth.

All items pictured are available at Treillage Ltd., 1015 Lexington Ave., New York, NY 10021, (212) 988-8800.
