Welcome to your holiday checklist and organization headquarters! Discover all of the Martha-designed products that will help you celebrate the season.

Three Weeks Before Thanksgiving

Pack away the Halloween decorations, it's time for turkey and pumpkin pie! Here are the tasks that require the most lead time and should be at the top of your to-do list.

Plan the Menu with Trusted Recipes

From side dishes of seasonal produce to better-for-you desserts, Martha's collection of cookbooks is a trusted resource for easy-to-prepare and crowd-pleasing recipes. You can also turn to the Martha Stewart TV app to stream full episodes of her beloved show right on your phone. You'll find videos for holiday inspiration, trusted recipes, and other seasonal advice.

Put Together Your Shopping List

Brave the store crowds with confidence knowing you have an organized shopping list and a game plan. Want to upgrade your standard notepad to a detailed planner? Need new must-haves like seasonal dinnerware and serveware? Martha's got it all! She will even get you around the store in all day comfort!

Pull Out Your Cookware & Food Prep Tools

Non-stick cookware and durable cooking tools allow you to spend time enjoying the day, instead of slaving over a hot stove and sink full of dishes. Martha's collection of Culinary Science cookware and kitchen gadgets were expertly designed in our test kitchens to improve cooking efficiency and safety. Her enameled cast iron cookware is perfect for one-pot recipes that help reduce clean up time.

Two Weeks Before Thanksgiving

Planning is key so you're not scrambling around when the door bell rings, so make sure you have enough guest bed linens and those important ingredients for the big meal. In addition, it will help to make sure you have all your seasonal décor for the remainder of the holidays! By the time Thanksgiving comes around, you will be calm and relaxed as those guests start rolling in.

One Week Before Thanksgiving

We're getting closer to a plate piled high with turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie! It's time to start preparing the entertaining areas of your home.

Iron the Table Linens

Make sure the foundation for your Thanksgiving meal is pressed to perfection for a crisp look. If you find your placemats and napkins have seen better (and cleaner) days, find a replacement set that complements your dinnerware. Create a traditional look with neutral tones or add a pop of color or pattern for a modern place setting.

Set the Table with Dinnerware and Centerpieces

Not only does a beautifully dressed table make your home feel more festive, but having it set and ready before your guests arrive will save you valuable time. Play with patterns, textures, and colors to create a modern table setting that feels seasonal without being kitschy.

Stock the Bar for Celebratory Toasts

Prep your bar so it's ready to use when guests arrive. Stock it with alcoholic and kid-friendly drink options, a variety of glasses and mugs, and proper barware. Coordinated bar tools and accessories let you stir and pour with ease, plus it creates a polished look.

Week of Thanksgiving

There's no need to panic! If you've been following your to-do list, this week is all about menu prep and last minute touches that are quick and easy.

Make & Freeze Pie Dough

Space out your cooking and baking requirements by preparing pie dough four to five days before Thanksgiving. Once mixed, it can be frozen until Thursday morning, at which time all you'll need to do is defrost it, assemble the pie, and bake until golden brown.

Fill in the Menu with Easy Recipes

Did you know you can make flavorful stock in less than an hour using a pressure cooker? Or how about this warm butternut squash salad with pumpkin seeds? Quickly order a copy of Martha Stewart's Pressure Cooker cookbook on Amazon for over 100 foolproof recipes and cooking tips from our test kitchen.

Thanksgiving Day

Put a fork in us, we're done! Relax with family, enjoy the delicious meal you've prepared, and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Defrost the Dough & Bake the Pies

Take out your prepared pie dough—how easy was that?—and get ready to bake. Note the cook time for each of your sweet treats and create a timetable for your oven. This will ensure you aren't trying to cook the turkey at one temperature and the apple pie at another, at the same time. Festive apple and pumpkin pie dishes from the Martha Stewart Collection are oven safe, which saves you time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Plus, they're a collector's item that your family will love year after year.

Chill the Wine in a Pinch

The perfect temperature for white and rosé wines is 45-50˚ F; any cooler and the wines' flavors begin to dull. If you don't have a wine fridge to regulate temperature, Martha Stewart Wine Co. has two chilling methods that take less than an hour. One technique calls for a damp dish towel wrapped around the wine bottle and placed in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. The other is a 40-minute refrigerator-free approach. Mix 1/2 cup of salt with a splash of water inside a gallon-size bucket, place the wine bottle inside, and fill with ice.

Pack Up the Leftovers

What a feast! Divvy up the leftovers for friends and family to enjoy the next day, or store them until round two later in the evening. Leak-proof and airtight seals will keep sauces from spilling and turkey from drying out. Glass food storage containers from the Martha Stewart Collection are freezer and microwave safe as well as BPA-free.
