Add a professional flourish to your dinner by pre-plating each serving for your guests.
Serving guests a plated meal adds an extra level of elegance to your Thanksgiving dinner. To get the look, simply carve the meat in advance and arrange several slices on each plate. Then add the side dishes in a visually pleasing arrangement. For a sophisticated finish, garnish the food with slivers of lemon or orange peel along with savory herbs, like rosemary or sage.
