Thanksgiving is almost here! If you are like most people, you may be excited about celebrating this special day. However, if you live in a small home, it may be difficult to find that holiday cheer. Today we are going to give you all the tips and tricks you need to host the perfect Thanksgiving in Lawrenceville in your small house.
HAVE A KITCHEN GAME PLAN
Thanksgiving in Lawrenceville is quickly approaching and if you are hosting at your house, football should not be the only game plan you are thinking of. Have a plan for your cooking times and kitchen space before you start preparing your meal. To ensure that everything falls into place, make a list of what times all your dishes need to start cooking, and how long they will be cooking for. Any seasoned host or hostess knows that it is important to evaluate recipes and their respective cook times in advance. However, this rule is much more important if you are living in a home with tight spaces.
SHARE THE LOAD WITH FRIENDS OR FAMILY
If you’ve ever hosted a holiday at your home before, you know there is nothing more stressful than trying to get every dish finished at the same time. On top of that, you must keep them hot long enough for the time it takes to finish everything else, without burning the dish, or leaving it to freeze on your countertop. If this is the case for you- delegate! There is no shame in asking your friends and family to help out. Everyone is enjoying the final product, so feel free to ask guests to bring a dish to your Thanksgiving in Lawrenceville. Chances are, you will find that your guests are more than willing to assist in this way. Who doesn’t love bringing a homemade dish to a family get together?
OPT FOR CREATIVE SEATING
Seating can be one of the biggest obstacles in a small space, but in a pinch, even a 5-gallon bucket can offer a standing guest a seat to relax on. Think creatively if needed, and do not hesitate to buy, borrow, or rent a few folding chairs or other easy-to-store seating options for the event.
ALWAYS CLEAN AS YOU GO
Many people agree that this is the best way to ensure a clean space. Unfortunately in a small home, it’s likely that your guests will be seated with a view of the dirty dishes if you let them stack up. Instead of ruining the Thanksgiving ambiance with leftover turkey trimmings and soiled casserole dishes, clean as you prep and clean in-between courses. Extra dessert for everyone involved if your guests are willing to pitch in!
Creating a multi-course Thanksgiving dinner is truly a commitment, and it is not for everyone. Dinner can be time-consuming and requires kitchen space. Instead, serve a Thanksgiving brunch or Snacksgiving in lieu of a grand meal! Tea sandwiches with cranberry sauce, deli turkey, and cream cheese can serve as a twist on the traditional meal. Add some sweet potato quiches and delicious cranberry mimosas to round out your morning treats. Making small, easy snacks throughout the day saves the big hassle of trying to squeeze everything in for dinner. Who knows, maybe your friends and family prefer a non-Traditional Thanksgiving in Lawrenceville.
Do you and your guests truly just gather for the company and parade viewing? Don’t hesitate to swap out the standard dinner with snacks-and-appetizer-based meal. Have your guests bring a favorite to share, and you’ll have enough food to fill everyone up. You also get the pleasure of trying new foods that you didn’t have to cook!
