Hosting Thanksgiving for the first time is a big deal for any adult. This milestone, full of excitement and gratitude, can also feel overwhelming.
In today’s post, you’ll learn 6 tips from our Brunswick county home builders you can use for a stress-free Thanksgiving.
- Solicit help from others.
Make Thanksgiving a potluck affair! Ask friends and family to bring dishes. Enlist the kids for setting the table and other preparatory chores.
- Make dishes ahead of time.
Stress often arises from the last-minute rush to host the holiday. Don’t save all the cooking for Thanksgiving morning. Plan a menu and start prepping days in advance.
- Set the table the night before.
A clean dining room and beautiful table will go a long way in reducing day-of stress. You’ll wake up to a well-decorated home that will inspire you all day long.
- Purchase your weaknesses.
Are you wonderful chef, but lousy baker? Don’t try to make a gourmet pie – go buy one! There’s no shame in purchasing food on Thanksgiving.
- Create a comprehensive schedule + to-do list.
Brunswick county home builders understand the power of a schedule. Start with dinnertime and work backwards. Phone alarms for key moments also help.
- Just relax and enjoy the time with your family!
Perhaps the best thing to remember: relax. No one will remember how the stuffing tasted, but they will remember the spirit of the home. Laugh, reminisce and build new memories.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Trusst Builder Group!
