Few celebrations say home like Thanksgiving in your new home in Colorado Springs. However, with the celebration also comes the stress of trying to create a perfect experience! But with a little preparation and an open mind, you can have a stress-free holiday!
Prepare food ahead of time instead of waiting until Thanksgiving eve or morning. We love these great Taste of Home make-ahead recipes.
Accept the help of others and make it a potluck or allow friends and family to assist you with the hostess and clean-up duties.
Set your table early and don’t be afraid to use high quality disposable dinnerware, utensils, etc. This will also greatly cut down on the kitchen cleaning that no one wants to do with a full belly!
Prepare a drink station to allow friends and family to serve themselves. Be sure to include a good variety with non-alcoholic beverages, beer, wine, sodas, water, plenty of ice, and a coffee and cocoa bar. Again, consider using plenty of quality disposable cups and glasses. Our team members with children suggest including a sharpie marker at your beverage station so that glasses can be properly labeled to avoid waste.
Choose easy-to-make appetizers
Use the pre-dinner time and enlist the kids to help make festive table decorations and crafts!
