Thanksgiving is a very important day for us that we can sit around the dinner table and share food and stories with those we love, and show our appreciates to them. So, for this special day, we always want to get some new ideas to make this day more unique. How about hosting an outdoor dinner? A good idea, isn't it?
But hosting a family holiday is not an easy thing as we need to not only make everyone feel funny but also to provide delicious food. To help you have a happy outdoor Thanksgiving Dinner, we will give you 5 perfect ideas.
1. A FAMILY FESTIVAL
The more people, the better...it is the traditional idea about thanksgiving dinner. But given the pandemic, we need to minimize our guest list and it's better to just have a meal with your family or those ones you lived together.
2. CREATE A FESTIVAL TABLESCAPE
You can decorate your backyard with a festival theme that is specifically designed to exude the essence of Thanksgiving, and, prepare these tables, chairs, linens, and dinnerware that you can accommodate your entire family and friends, and, make sure your gears are suitable for use outdoors. We recommend you use KingCamp outdoor gears, which are lightweight, elegant, easy to put together and that will function especially well outdoors.
3. OPTING FOR AN OUTDOOR THANKSGIVING MEAL
Make sure to have a plan for how, when, and what you are cooking in advance. You can choose some untraditional dinner menu, such as side dishes that can be cooked in your outdoor kitchen, for example, kale salad, broccoli slaw, mushroom, or wild rice stuffing...not only healthier but also makes you have more time to stay closer to your guests. And, fire up the grill, and make the best of it by gathering during the warmest part of the day. Try to grilled turkey? Good idea.
4. KEEP YOUR FAMILY WARM
The outdoor weather is cold towards the end of November, especially at night, so we need to prepare more gears to combat colder weather and keep our family and friends warm.
It is a good idea to use tents and portable patio heaters (a portable, built-in fire pit, an outdoor fireplace, or chimeneas) to create a warm place for people. You can also provide throw blankets and comfy indoor/outdoor slippers to make your family and friends feel particularly cozy even outdoors.
5. CONSIDER A GAME HOUR
If your outdoor Thanksgiving dinner will include kids, try to organize activities to add a little more fun for them. You can set up a craft table to keep kids busy. DIY Thanksgiving Piñata, make Turkey Tail Napkin Rings, DIY Gourd Turkeys, do Color Sorting Activity...all these activities will keep the kids occupied and having fun.
Let's add creativity to your Thanksgiving and give your family and friends an unforgettable and unique festival!
