Helpful Forms for Thanksgiving

November 21, 2014


You are about to reunite with your friends and family for a food-coma filled Thanksgiving, so you want to get the details right. Hot cider is brewing, scarves can come out of the closet, and pumpkin spice lattes return to Starbucks. It is definitely the best time of the year! With JotForm's
 Form Designer, you can easily create a seasonally appropriate and fun forms and get all the essential information from your guests via email. Who's attending? Who can't make it? Who's bringing a date? How many kids are coming to wreck havoc?

"Today I am Thankful" Form

You can attain this critical information while wowing your family with colorful forms complete with dancing pilgrims, gobbling turkeys, and backdrops of enticing pumpkin pies and Thanksgiving platters. If your entire extended family and friends are attending, your form can give your guests an option to check off or select in a drop-down what they are bringing to the party.

The host makes the turkey, and emails everyone a form to delegate the other dishes. The form can help ensure that there are vegetarian and/or allergy conscious choices on the menu. If you have some guests whose culinary skills are seriously lacking, they can select the option of bringing dessert or opt for clean-up duty.

Feel free to add fun extras like an option on the form to include a song request, so that it can be added to the playlist.

One of our family traditions at Thanksgiving is to give out Christmas lists to the family members (or whoever it is who has drawn each person's name when we've drawn names for gift giving). Is there a form in the Thanksgiving submissions for sending a Christmas list?
