When it comes to throwing an amazing party, you don’t need much more than good food, nice booze, and a few great people. Hosting an awesome Thanksgiving party is no different. All you have to do is stick to a few simple rules, and you’ll have it in the bag. Ready to learn? Let’s do this.
- Delegate All Over the Place
It might feel like a point of pride to plan, bake, and assemble the entire Thanksgiving meal yourself, but there’s no reason to make it that hard for yourself. People are happy to help out, all it takes is putting the word out.
2. Don’t Invite Aunt Carol
You’ve got an Aunt Carol. We all do. Whether she’s actually your Uncle Jim or Cousin Bruce, she’s the one who brings all the negative energy to the party. Honestly, you can do without her!
3. Keep It Simple
This should go without saying, but too often it doesn’t. Outdoing yourself by trying to create the perfect Thanksgiving is only going to exhaust you and discourage you from continuing the tradition. Keeping things simple is the key to having a great time at your own party.
4. Wear Your Boldest Statement Pieces
It’s your party: why shouldn’t you look as glamorous as possible? This is one of the few occasions during the year where you can dust off those too-beautiful-for-everyday earrings or necklaces and let them shine.
5. Leave Room for Dessert
It’s a classic Thanksgiving mishap to put all your energy and time into the main meal and totally forget about dessert. Instead of that store-bought pumpkin pie, find something more creative (and minimally time-consuming) for dessert.
6. Keep Sober(ish)
We all like to get lit up during the holidays, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, if you want to keep your wits about you for most of the evening, it’s important to keep at least reasonably sober until dinner. Or at least, until after the turkey’s in the oven.
From all of us at Bazooka Grooves, a very Happy Thanksgiving.
