5 Hacks To Host The Best Thanksgiving

Plan Activities To Keep The Kids Occupied

Prepare a table just for the kids, dinner might take more time than you expect, so bring board games (like monopoly, scrabble or battleship), or lay out paper and crayons and tell them to make a holiday list. This will help keep them occupied until dinner is ready.

Book Your Rental With Anticipation

Thanksgiving is one of the most popular holidays and everyone likes to spend that time together. There often isn’t availability at the resorts to meet the demand, which is why booking a vacation rental in Utah early is the best idea. Many people have that in mind, so to guarantee your spot, it’s crucial to book early. We recommend starting your research with at least 2 months of anticipation to have a better chance of finding a unit that works best for you.

Divide The Cooking Preparation

Everybody wants to show off their culinary skills and if you don’t assign each member a dish, the kitchen and the whole dinner is going to be chaos. Dishes like Turkey or mashed potatoes need to be cooked on time but dishes like the gravy, deserts or jellies can be done in advance. This way fewer people will need to be in the kitchen and dinner will be served faster.

Make a List with The Items You'll Need

For cooking Thanksgiving meals you might require some special equipment like serving dishes and tableware, make sure you bring everything you will need to cook.

Keep Your Dishes Warm

Many dishes are prepared for your Utah Thanksgiving dinner, so you must be prepared to keep them warm. We have a couple of ideas for you:

  1. Try using a toaster oven to keep smaller things warm.
  2. Wrapping your turkey with foil will help keep it warm and it will help it to not get dry.
  3. You can also use a slow cooker to keep dressings and mashed potatoes warm.
