How to Throw Best Thanksgiving Party

14 Nov

Kick-off the winter holiday season with a warm and welcoming Thanksgiving for the whole family! If you want to throw the best Thanksgiving party ever then you need to come up with the right ingredients. These may differ for different family and friends, but some of the basic elements will remain the same. The following tips should have you well on your way to planning the best Thanksgiving party ever!

House / Table decorating

Demonstrate your holiday excitement with creative Thanksgiving-themed decorating ideas. Brainstorm color schemes, centerpieces, and other little details that create a festive mood. Celebrate the holiday with a display of warm and inviting colors, fall scents and fall décor. Incorporate a color scheme of red, orange, yellow and brown in your decoration. Include these fall colors in your Thanksgiving dinner table ideas, centerpieces, place settings, place cards, and even food presentation. For a warm glow and special atmosphere, place votive candles with an apple, cinnamon or pecan scent all over the house.

Thanksgiving Food

It’s no secret that Thanksgiving is all about food. If you plan on having a great Thanksgiving party then your holiday table should be overflowing with plenty of delicious dishes!

Have a variety of foods on hand. You will need to have plenty of turkey, ham, sides, bread, and more desserts than you think are enough! Serve the traditional Thanksgiving food with a roasted turkey as the centerpiece, but keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with mixing it up a bit and adding some cultural foods or some of your family favorites. Who knows, they might just become tradition over time! Remember to always cook enough that if some unexpected guests show up you still have plenty. Giving doggy bags to the guests after the party and eating leftovers for the next several days is a part of Thanksgiving tradition, so having extra won’t hurt.

Spirits

To really loosen your family members and friends up consider having some wine, liquor, or beer on hand. In fact, you could even plan on just wine, mixed drinks, beer, or a mixture of the above. If you don’t want to go to too much trouble then choose a drink that complements the meal the most and stock up on that particular one. As long as your guests can have a drink or two they will relax and really enjoy the party. Remember that it’s better to serve the drinks after the meal to make sure your guests have room for food and don’t get drunk even before the dinner is served.

Thanksgiving Activities for the Whole Family

Entertain your guests during Thanksgiving dinner with some fun activities suitable for all age groups. Choose games that allow for a number of different players so you can adapt the game for the group. Play a combination of user-friendly board games to play with family and card games. Plan a game of “Go Fish,” play a round of Monopoly, or have fun with a challenging game of Uno. Offer prizes to motivate guests, especially the little ones to participate in the games. No matter what Thanksgiving activities you plan to do, enjoy and cherish the quality time spent together with family and friends!
