FREE Thanksgiving Planner Printable

I was browsing through an old cookbook and I found a Thanksgiving menu from years ago. It’s written on a piece of stained, torn paper. The ink is faded and it’s from a period in time when everyone wrote in cursive. Thankfully, this year, I have a Thanksgiving Planner that covers everything AND as a thank you for visiting my little corner of the world, I’ve got one for you too!

Thanksgiving Planner - Free Printable

If you’re like me, much of your Thanksgiving menu stays the same each year. I know better than to mess with the deep-fried turkey, cornbread dressing or canned cranberry sauce (hold the berries). My family actually likes the canned better than homemade. Sigh.

Southern Chicken and Dumplings always make an appearance on my Thanksgiving table. Sweet potato casserole is always invited. Some of the other side dishes change from year to year, just to keep things interesting.

I remember the first time I hosted Thanksgiving dinner. My family and I lived in OK and I called my mom back in GA with dozens of questions. If only I’d had this Thanksgiving Planner back then!

If this is your first or 15th time hosting Thanksgiving, you’ll love having everything at your fingertips. Here’s what’s included in the Free Thanksgiving Planner Printables.

The days of ripping off the corner of a sheet of notebook paper to make out my Thanksgiving menu are over. Keeping up with my cooking timeline on a napkin is a thing of the past. This year I’ll be organized and ready to face whatever comes my way.

Thanksgiving Day is all about spending time with family and friends, eating a scrumptious meal and watching a little football (at least at my house).

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? If you’re not hosting Thanksgiving, please feel free to print my FREE Thanksgiving Planner out for your mom, grandma or whoever will be hosting turkey day. Believe me, they’ll thank you for it.

    The planner is *PERFECT* and exactly what I was looking for! This year we have an exchange student & our son is bringing home friends from college who are new to the US who never experienced Thanksgiving and want to be involved and help with the preparations. This is absolutely perfect for our needs. Love the details. It’s very straightforward and very adorable. Best of all, you shared it for *FREE* – Thanks SO much!!!

    • I’m glad you love the planner! You’re so welcome and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. One year we had several friends over for Thanksgiving Dinner. Many of them were students from other countries. We had the best time introducing them to Thanksgiving and the food that goes with.
