Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to get together to celebrate the holiday with a delicious meal.  Some of my personal favorite dishes include green bean casserole, stuffing and sweet potatoes.  I love that some people fry their turkeys while others may grill them.  We all celebrate Thanksgiving in our own way with our traditions and favorite dishes.  A great way to make Thanksgiving dinner more memorable is by adding something personalized.  We have a few ideas to help elevate your table this holiday!

Outdoor Thanksgiving Ideas

11 Nov

With Thanksgiving around the corner, people are trying to find ways to stay safe but still see their friends and family.  A great way to enjoy Thanksgiving is to host an outdoor get-together.  Instead of a traditional sit-down dinner, you can rethink the menu for 2020 and different ways to entertain.



If you don’t have enough chairs, ask everyone to bring their favorite outdoor chair.  If the weather is cooler where you live, have them bring an outdoor blanket.  You can always build a fire and/or use outdoor heaters if needed.

For food, why not try an outdoor soup and turkey chili bar?  You can serve soup and chili in individual disposable cups and have plastic utensils wrapped in napkins.  You can also do this with hot cocoa or any other hot beverage.  Another great idea is to have everyone BYOB to keep sharing to a minimum.

For desserts, try serving apple cobbler or pumpkin pie pre-sliced.  You could also serve apple cobbler warm in disposable cups using disposable utensils.

For a twist on Thanksgiving turkey, we love this turkey chili recipe from FoodNetwork.com.  You can serve with individual bags of crackers and cheese.  For a great fall soup, try a creamy roasted pumpkin soup.  You can garnish this with pepitas for color and crunch.

For some great outdoor ambience, try piling gourds and pumpkins amongst mums.  You can add these near serving tables or near entryways.  You can also sprinkle in mini-gourds and pumpkins on the serving table.
