Hosting a Thanksgiving get-together can be overwhelming, especially when you’re hosting it in the compact space of an RV. However, that doesn’t mean you should skip the holiday when living life on the road.
Use these simple tips for throwing the perfect Thanksgiving celebration in the comfort of your RV this year.
1. Plan Ahead
Thanksgiving’s position after Halloween and before Christmas means the holiday seems to appear out of nowhere. Decide which dishes you’ll be making ahead of time, so you can start the process of gathering all of the supplies you’ll need.
2. Start Cooking Early
You don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving Day to start the cooking process. Prepare your sides the day before Thanksgiving, so you just have to pop them in the oven when your guests arrive.
3. Try Something New
Use traveling in your RV during the holiday as a chance to try something new. Consider deep-frying your turkey outside instead of roasting it indoors.
4. Find Decorations at the Campsite
Use sticks, leaves, pine cones and pine needles from around the campsite for festive and free table decorations.
5. Consider Buying Your Desserts
Shop at a local bakery for delectable Thanksgiving desserts that your friends will love just as much as the homemade versions.
6. Create Fun Placecards
Placecards are a fun part of every festivity, but you can make them even more enjoyable by printing out funny Facebook photos of your friends instead.
7. Label Your Dishes
Make your party welcoming for your friends with dietary restrictions by labeling your dishes with their name and what’s inside.
8. Don’t Forget the Kids’ Table
Creating a fun kids’ table will ensure your little guests stay occupied, so the adults can have more fun. Cover the kids’ table with craft paper and give them plenty of crayons to decorate it as they please.
