5 Things to Consider When Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner


This Thanksgiving, don’t let the fact that you are hosting stress you out. HHHunt is here to help guide you along the way! To make this Thanksgiving the best one yet, we’ve provided these five things to consider:

Make It Simple

Thanksgiving dinner isn’t the time to try that 3-hour super complicated dish that you’ve always wanted to cook. Instead, follow a plan and create simple, traditional dishes that are full of flavor.

Consider preparing a roasted turkey with gravy, apple-cranberry dressing, fall salad, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and an apple pie. If there are any family recipes, be sure to include those in your meal!

Create a Timeline

Read all the recipes before you start cooking. Figure out which dishes take the longest and prepare ahead of time. If you’re buying a frozen turkey this year, make sure you allot enough time to thaw it out. A good rule of thumb is for the turkey to spend one day in the fridge for every 5 pounds.

Ask for Help

Don’t feel like you must do everything yourself. Enlist the help of others to prep in the kitchen, set the table, bring a dish or help clean up.

Decorate in Style

The possibilities are endless when creating the perfect Thanksgiving tablescape and centerpiece! These ideas from HGTV will get your creative juices flowing.

Label the Dishes

Label dishes clearly for those with food allergies, vegetarians and picky eaters.  Take a creative spin on the traditional label and make something out-of-the-box!
