Celebrating Thanksgiving in Your Apartment

Posted October 6, 2023 | by Signet Group

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, ushering in a time for reflection and gratitude. Whether you’re hosting a small, intimate gathering or a full-out bash, make sure to keep these tips in mind as you transform your apartment into a festive heaven.

The highlight of Thanksgiving is the meal, so make sure to plan it out ahead of time. Consider how big your group is and how much space you have in your refrigerator to help you determine the appropriate amount of food. If there are any dietary restrictions or you simply don’t have the time, make it a potluck! Assign each guest a dish and create a diverse and delicious meal that everyone can take part in making. At the end of the night, send any leftovers home with your family so they can celebrate during their lunch the next day. Cleaning up after the meal can be time consuming, so use disposable dinnerware to avoid the hassle and spend more time with your loved ones.

To increase your apartment’s seating capacity, invest in some folding chairs and tables to help everyone fit into the space. If you have a balcony, consider creating a seating area there to maximize every inch of your home. Add festive colours – orange, red, brown and gold – through seasonal decor, candles and gourds to help your apartment feel cozy.

If you love games or have little ones to occupy, create some festive Thanksgiving-themed activities. Poll your family and create a Thanksgiving version of Family Feud, brainstorm some prompts for charades or create a family of hand turkeys.

As the night winds down and the aroma of dinner lingers, make sure to have fun with your family. Give thanks to those you love, share your favourite stories and remember to cherish these moments for as long as you can.
