How to Host an Awesome Thanksgiving Party
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year. You can enjoy your family and friend’s company without the pressure of getting the perfect gift! If you’re hosting a Thanksgiving party the main thing you’re going to be concerned about is making sure the food is delicious! Once you have your food situation figured out, there are still several things to make sure your party is a success!
First, make sure you dress your table to really impress your guests. Turkey and cornucopia are the traditional centerpieces, but if you want to steer away from that and make a statement, fresh flowers are always a great option. Get some inspiration from here.
When guests arrive, don’t let them go to the dinner table famished. Have light appetizers your guests can snack on before the feast is ready! Crostini, brie, spinach and artichoke dip, stuffed mushrooms, chips and dip, olives and cheese are all light dishes that would let your guests nibble before the meal. Make sure you have a variety for everyone attending. Find some great recipes for light appetizers here.
If you have any guest from out of town that are staying with you, make sure you plan to feed them the entire time they are staying with you. Save your awesome culinary skills for the big Thanksgiving meal and plan simple meals before and following the big feast. Easy meals like muffins, fruit, yogurt, cut up veggies, sandwich meats and some chips will allow you to be a great host without overdoing it. If your guests are staying after the big meal, cook plenty so your guests can eat leftovers . . . because who doesn’t love Thanksgiving leftovers?
If there are kids attending your Thanksgiving party, make sure you have a table that’s reserved for them. Dress their table in a table cloth you won’t worry about if it gets dirty, non-breakable plates and an activity to keep them busy. Having a little gift for the kiddos to let them feel special is also a great idea. You can find great inspiration here.
