How to Host the Best Thanksgiving


If you’re planning on hosting Thanksgiving this year, you might already be stressed about it. There’s a lot that goes into this holiday, but it’s nothing planning ahead won’t fix! Make sure you know what it takes to host the best Thanksgiving at your house.

Cook Ahead of Time 

If you have foods that you’re planning on making that can be done a few days in advance, take that opportunity! Sure, your turkey needs to be done the day of, but desserts and side dishes can be done beforehand. This will give you more time to set up and prepare for guests.

Don’t Turn Down Help

Even though you are the host, a little help never hurt anybody. If someone is offering a helping hand, don’t turn them down! This also includes letting friends and family bring food, lessening your workload. Thanksgiving is a holiday after all, and you deserve to relax and spend time with loved ones, too.

Don’t Experiment The Day Of

One of the most fun parts of Thanksgiving is cooking new food you’ve never tried before. But, don’t cook something new for the first time on the day of Thanksgiving! Practice beforehand or stick to a more traditional recipe to avoid any last-minute disasters.

Prepare Early

This applies to both food preparation and non-food preparation. It’s important to make sure you have all the ingredients you need. Also, it helps to make sure you have the proper amount of silverware and dishes for your guests!

Know It’s Okay to Buy Food

Don’t have time to bake? That’s fine! There are plenty of stores around Long Island that make great desserts. If you have extra time the week before, consider going out east to get some locally grown farm pies!

Most importantly, don’t forget to relax and have fun! Thanksgiving is a time for surrounding yourself with people you love! Celebrate it with good spirits and good food!
