5 Ways to Prep Your Home for a Thanksgiving Get Together
Ah…autumn is here. And with it come visions of fall colors, crisp air, pumpkin-spiced coffee, and of course, Thanksgiving Day. Whether you have plans to host the entire clan at your place or have simple family time with good food and football, here are some easy ways to prepare for the day that we reflect on gratitude.
The Main Event
You cannot think of Thanksgiving without thinking of the food! Spend a little time creating a list of your must-haves, favorite family dishes and desserts. Remember, the meal does not have to involve fifteen different dishes. Decide which ones are classic family favorites and stick with those.
What is the key to a warm and welcoming get together? A tidy home, no matter how simple or elaborate, is a good place to start with making your guests feel at home. All you need to do is focus on key areas, such as the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Clear the spaces, dust all surfaces and move away the clutter and other distractions to create a lovely, welcoming space.
The Beauty of Autumn
Once you have the food list prepped and your spaces ready, you get to decorate your home! This is a fun season to dress up your house with the natural beauty of fall. No need to overthink or overspend. Pumpkins, leaves, pinecones, burlap or ribbon come together to create inexpensive and lovely fall decor.
Thanksgiving is a time for family traditions, such as eating Grandma’s famous pie or telling stories around the dinner table. But you can also start some traditions of your own. How about a treasure hunt for the kids, a puzzle or board game, a movie, or playing croquet in the yard? Whatever it is, you will be making fun and meaningful memories as a family.
