Great Thanksgiving Dinner Party Ideas

Party Ideas,Food & Beverages,Hobbies
With Thanksgiving on the way, there's no doubt that everyone will be breaking out the tables and chairs for a day of great food and even greater company. This is the time of year to gather together with friends and family to eat and give thanks for what we've got, and there's no better way to do it than with a big collective dinner party! Believe it or not, dinner parties can actually be much easier than trying to cook all the food yourself, especially if you decide to do a potluck! If you're thinking this sounds like a good idea, here's some special tips to get your dinner party up and running!

Cool Decorations

Having a memorable dinner party starts with a memorable set up. Don't worry! This is the fun part. Lucky for you, Thanksgiving already has a ton of associations to make decorating easier. Just cover everything in warm colors like yellow, orange, and red, and throw in a few neutral brown colors to balance things out. Be sure to get colorful table cloths for when people spill their food - which, at Thanksgiving, is always inevitable. If you want to add a little bit of extra pizzazz to your Thanksgiving party, just have the kids go out and collect a bunch of the fresh turned leaves to decorate with. For a centerpiece, the classic cornucopia filled with fall harvest fruits and veggies like corn, apples, and pumpkins always leaves smiles on faces - and gets appetites rumbling!

Great Food

There's no doubt that Thanksgiving is all about food. From the moment we hear the holiday's name, our minds begin to picture juicy turkeys, yummy stuffing, and mashed potatoes. However, Thanksgiving is also a source of major headache for anyone that has to cook for the crowd, since it usually requires hours of intense labor in the kitchen. Often, the very mention of a "Thanksgiving party" can leave anyone who has attempted one cringing. But there is an easy way out! Potlucks are a favorite for a reason at office parties and church gatherings, and that's because they're super simple. Instead of trying to do everything yourself, call a bunch of friends to the party too and ask that they each bring a couple of Thanksgiving favorites to dine on. Not only will you have great food, you'll also have great company to share it with!

Fun Games

Unless everybody you invite to the party doesn't have kids, you can pretty much guarantee they'll be at your dinner party. Kids will without a doubt liven things up, and keep you on your toes, but you certainly don't want the little monsters in the kitchen when you're trying to get dinner on. Instead of risking disaster, its best to have a battle plan prepared. Set up a bunch of fun crafts and games outside, like pin the feathers on the turkey, paper-bag pilgrim outfits, and paper plate turkeys. Of course, you'll need a few grown ups to monitor the rascals and help them with the projects, but it beats having them under your feet all day. By the end of the day, you'll even have a whole new batch of kid-crafted decorations to display around the house!

Folding Tables

Often, one of the biggest issues with any sort of communal dinner party is where to put everyone. Unfortunately, many of those old-school folding event tables weigh a country ton (and they're not always the most sightly things on the planet either). Instead of spending an hour and a half with your significant other trying untangle the beastly things, why not check out some of the newer folding table designs? Nowadays, affordable folding tables for event use can come in all sorts of stylish shapes and colors to enliven your party. If you'd rather invest in tables that can be used for a many purposes, versatile tables for training room use make wonderful alternates. Not only are both options insanely affordable, they're also durable, and can be used around the house and at all sorts of events for years to come!

Event Chairs

The final hurtle of the Thanksgiving dinner party is gathering enough seats. Insufficient seating can present a huge problem at any event, because it often forces people to stand. While standing and munching on hors d'oeuvres is acceptable at almost any other event, at Thanksgiving, it can be a huge embarrassment. If trying to juggle a plateful of Thanksgiving dinner while standing doesn't result in a huge mess, you can bet it will definitely result in guests feeling extremely awkward. The good news is that all of this can be avoided if you know what to shop for! Most office furniture websites carry stylish mesh seating for guest use that works great at events. In addition, comfortable chairs for training room use are usually equipped with mobility and nesting features for easy storage. Just like the folding tables, both of these options are super affordable, and often available in bulk quantities for low prices. They can be easily stored and used for everything from holiday dinners, to sporting events, birthdays, and even everyday use at home office desks!
