It’s almost Thanksgiving, and that means it’s time to start planning your Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.
Widgetboxer Erika Campos of San Francisco has been using Widgetbox to help her plan her annual Thanksgiving dinner for the past two years. We asked her to give us the details of some of the widgets she’s using this year to help her plan the big day.
- The first thing I did this year was to install a Thanksgiving countdown widget. It took less than five minutes to install the widget on my blog and social media profiles. Every time I check my pages it’s there to keep me organized and focused.
- Next I installed the party planning widget. It’s definitely a must for any type of party or event planning. There’s a direct link to Evite.com to help with email invitations, up to the minute weather forecasts, and party planning tips.
- Every year I try to introduce a new recipe or two, so the recipe widgets are great for giving me new ideas to try. My favorites are the Epicurious and Chow.com widgets. They give me recipes from Gourmet, Bon Appetit, and other renowned food magazines. This year the new recipes I’m trying are: Cider Glazed Turkey, Brown Butternut Squash Couscous, and Spiced Apple Cupcakes.
- Finally on the day of Thanksgiving I like to send all my family and friends Thanksgiving postcards—especially those who won't be able to make it to dinner—just to let them know that I have been thinking about them
