Want something exciting to do this fall? Host a dinner party in honor of Thanksgiving for your closest friends. Yes, hosting a dinner party can be daunting and unattainable if you think too much into it. However, the key is to plan out a great theme to follow and Wedding and Party Network has two that we think we'll win your guests over.
Breakfast for Dinner: You can put a new spin on your party by having breakfast for dinner! This will definitely put a new twist on your party, but still be delicious as ever. Make it season-appropriate by having pumpkin pancakes or waffles, a variety of muffins shaped like leaves, sweet potato hash browns, and serve apple cider with your breakfast. Put together a few cups of apple juice, about 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, a cinnamon stick, and an apple slice. There you have it, a delicious breakfast for dinner that goes well with the season.
Split up: In addition to your regular get-together with the entire family, extend the weekend by having separate parties for the girls and guys. The guys can have football-themed foods and watch the game together, and the girls can spend Friday or Saturday cooking together and catching up. You can also use this time to share your favorite holiday recipes. Have your friends bring their cookbooks, provide a bunch of index cards, and get busy copying/modifying recipes!
A lot of people are resistant of change, especially during a holiday, so let your guests know how you've decided to celebrate by sending invitations out in advance if you have the time. Of course, you can't go wrong with celebrating Thanksgiving with the standard rituals. A big turkey or ham, plenty of veggies, and a banana pudding are big hits and will still give you a reason to get together!
