  1. Give your place a makeover

There’s no better time to get your home cleared of clutter than before a big party. Get a cool turkey tablecloth, change up the window curtains and look for some cute dishware. You don’t need to spend a fortune, but make it creative so that your guests feel welcome when they arrive.  If you’re short on space, consider putting away unnecessary pieces of furniture to make more room. Spice up the ambiance by adding some decor to the front of the house or on the front door. Pine cones and cornucopias add a festive holiday touch. Village Catering offers Thanksgiving meal catering, so in a pinch you can always call on us to provide some delicious holiday food for your holiday party.

  1. Consider Thanksgiving party hats

Especially for families that have small children, Thanksgiving can be a fun time to make crazy hats for everyone to wear. You can find inexpensive hats at local dollar stores and even make some out of construction paper or poster board. You can add fabrics, sequins, and feathers. Get creative and offer a prize for the most creative hat. You can even pass a hat around the table and have everyone place snippets of paper in it that have their “most thankful” thoughts on them. At Village Catering, we know that your guests will be thankful just being at your party.

  1. Have a pumpkin roll

It’s one of the funniest events you could have at a Thanksgiving party, and it’s amazingly simple to put together because you only need some pumpkins and some sturdy sticks. Designate your pumpkin racers and then make a start and finish line. You don’t need to get fancy. Get your racers to line up so that the pumpkins are on their sides. On the count of three, have your racers use their sticks to roll their pumpkins to the finish line. The trick is to keep the pumpkins on their sides for the entire race. As a tip, use medium sized pumpkins, and make sure you give yourself plenty of room for this activity.
