Are you planning a huge Thanksgiving feast for all your friends and family? Are you concerned about getting everything ready on time and having enough space for all your loved ones? Have no fear – we are here to provide you with some helpful tips to ensure that your Thanksgiving is a successful one.
Make a Plan
There are so many moving pieces that go into creating the perfect Thanksgiving, so it is important to make a plan. Write out a to-do list or even a schedule for the day to make sure that everything is accounted for and properly planned. Rather than improvising the entire day, stick to the schedule to ensure success. A little bit of foresite will go a long way during the holidays.
Whether this is your first time hosting Thanksgiving or your tenth year in a row, it is never easy to do everything. Accept the help! If someone wants to come over to help cook or bring a dish with them, it is one less thing for you to worry about. Your guests already appreciate your efforts and the fact that you are opening up your home for them; they won’t think anything less just because you had a little help.
Do as Much as You Can Ahead of Time
Thanksgiving can be a bit overwhelming so if there is anything you can do before the day-of, then definitely get a head start on it. Something as simple as chopping up the vegetables the night before can really help the day of. There are even some casseroles and side dishes that can be made and frozen, so that the day of, all you have to do is throw them in the oven. We also recommend setting the dining room table the day before so that you can arrange the seating before anyone gets there as well as have one less thing to worry about doing on Thanksgiving.
