Five Thanksgiving Seating Diagrams for the Best Thanksgiving Ever!
Family has flown in from around the country. You’ve spent hours on the turkey. This guide to seating your guests will make sure all your hard work has not been in vain.
Two members of your extended family don’t get along well. You’re worried they will fight and nobody will have a good time.
Solution: Seat them facing the same way, but as far apart as possible. That way they don’t have to converse or see one another. They’ll make up when they’re good and ready, and the night will be a success!
Nobody wants to talk to an unpopular uncle.
Solution: Simply seat the unpopular uncle near the trashcan. He’ll want to leave early because of the unpleasant seat, and guests will delight in “accidentally” hitting him with trash. Your Thanksgiving dinner will go down in family history as one of the best.
