In a long year, Thanksgiving is probably the most awaited of all time! It is the season where all members of the family, all your friends, and loved ones finally gather for a celebration. It is also the season of gift-giving where you express your love, affection, and appreciation to other people. Everyone loves Thanksgiving night!
While thanksgiving might be exciting, it is also a daunting and challenging time of the year. Before you celebrate the occasion, you need to prepare a lot of things in your house to be presentable to your guests. You also need to make sure that everything is polished and ready before your family gathers for a reunion. If the thanksgiving season is finally near, we suggest that you prepare the 5 things that we will list down below:
If you are planning to celebrate Thanksgiving night in your house, it is a must that you make your house look presentable to your guests. To do that, you need to put on just the right amount of decoration that will showcase the occasion. One of which is thanksgiving table decor that you can put on the table in your living area. There are lots of table decor that you can buy in the market but we suggest that you pick one that is minimalist but pleasing to the eye. It should fit the overall wall paintings and decorations of your house. Not to mention that table decor is a little tricky to choose because it will be displayed right in the center of your living room that all your guests will be able to see and observe.
2. Dining Area
You need to prepare your dining area since this is the place wherein all of your guests and visitors will be able to eat together and talk to each other. It should be a place wherein communication will be comfortable to do. There should be no other distractions in your dining area like television and karaoke stations. It should only be the place wherein all the people eating together will pay attention to the food and the people around them. Your dining area must be a quiet but comfortable place to eat and have a casual talk with all the visitors.
3. Food Specialties
Of course, the stars of the night are no other than your food specialties. All of your guests and visitors are surely looking forward to tasting the food that you have prepared for them. So we suggest that even before the occasion, try to practice cooking the meals that you have planned for the night and taste if it suits your expectations. Practice will surely make your specialty taste perfect so go ahead and master your menu!
Wines are a perfect way to de-stress from a long and stressful year. Visitors also would love to have whisky with every guest that you have invited. Wine is very important for the fun of the night that we have been waiting for! To have the perfect night, we suggest that you prepare a handful of wines with a variety of flavors so that your visitors will have a wide range of wines to choose from on Thanksgiving night. Also, do not forget to store plenty of ice in your refrigerator in case of need!
5. A Clean Bathroom
Last but not the least, you have to make sure that your bathroom is clean on Thanksgiving night. We know that you might be busy preparing other things for the celebration but cleaning the bathroom is a preparation that you should never forget especially that your visitors will most likely use your bathroom during the celebration. If your living and dining area look presentable, the bathroom should also look the same. Remove the unnecessary stuff in your bathroom cabinets and store it in a place not accessible to the visitors. Make sure that you put fragrance in your bathroom conditioner. And lastly, make sure that there is proper ventilation and lighting.
In a Nutshell
Thanksgiving night is fun and games but the preparation that it takes to have the perfect night is very challenging and daunting. You need to prepare a lot of things like decoration to look presentable, you also need to prepare the dining area to be comfortable, prepare your menu to be outstanding, prepare a wide variety of wine options for the visitors, and lastly, your bathroom should be nice and clean. In preparing these things, you may prepare a checklist so you can check if you miss something. Do not worry because all these preparations needed to celebrate the night will be worth it! If you follow our guide, all your visitors will surely enjoy the night and will look forward to celebrating again with you in the future!
