Vegetarians don't have to dread Thanksgiving anymore: Recipe4Living has plenty of delicious, nutritious and well balanced vegetarian Thanksgiving menu recipes and ideas!

Not to mention, who wants to settle for tofurkey just to join in the Thanksgiving fun? Well worry not vegetarians, Recipe4Living has a menu for you this year too and it's full of recipes that will even make turkey-eaters jealous.

Presentation Pointers:
1. For a nice and simple centerpiece, buy a few fall gourds at the grocery store and place them in a ceramic or glass bowl. Pile them high so your guests can admire them throughout the meal. An alternative: fill a vase with cranberries and put your flowers over them.
2. Dress your table with autumn colors like browns, golds, oranges and reds. Complete your look with tablecloths, plasticware and even plates in this color scheme.
3. Let your guests help you do the final assembly. Have them put side dishes into bowls and set the table while you take care of the rest.
