Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented us from celebrating our yearly Thanksgiving tradition. But this time around, things are slowly getting back to normal, and you can definitely make up for the lost time by making this Thanksgiving the best one you’ve ever hosted yet.
Here are five simple tips to help you plan an epic celebration this year:
1. Plan your menu
While you already know the “must-haves” for any Thanksgiving feast, you can always add some extra items to the menu to make this year more special than ever. For instance, you can follow your traditional turkey recipe and add some interesting sides that you haven’t served before like a sweet potato casserole, cauliflower parsnip mash, and baked sweet potato.
2. Plan your décor
Of course, you need to prepare your home for Thanksgiving by making sure that every detail is well thought out—from your table setting to the ambiance of your house. Since you’re going for that homey feel, you can book a holiday plant service Orlando to spruce up your space. You can put some plants on your table and around your house to make it feel festive without having to spend a lot on décor that you’ll only keep in the garage after.
3. Plan your guest list
Making up for a lost time, you can be more generous with your guest list this year by inviting more family members over. Just make sure that you finalize your guest list as early as possible since there are more requirements for travelers this time and family members flying from other states or countries need to book and plan their trip early.
4. Plan your shopping list
Thanksgiving season means malls and groceries will be packed with people. So, if you want to avoid the holiday rush, you need to plan your shopping list and schedule your trips to the mall and supermarket to make sure that you get everything you need for your feast without having to battle against other shoppers. You can also keep yourself safe by avoiding large crowds of people.
5. Plan your big day
The day of your celebrations will go by so fast, especially if you have so much to do. Therefore it’s very important to create a timeline for your preparations and the day itself. Aside from making sure that you already booked your holiday plant service Orlando, you also need to plan your cooking process, setting up your decorations, and preparing the rest of your house for your guests. Planning some fun activities is also a must. A traditional favorite is of course watching the Thanksgiving Day Macy’s Parade.
Thanksgiving is definitely a great time to gather the family together, reminisce on the memories, and just spend some quality time to make up for a year of separation due to the pandemic.
So, before the busy season begins, make sure that you have everything planned well to avoid stress, save money and make sure that you get to enjoy this wonderful time of the year.
