Four Tips for an Outdoor Thanksgiving

outdoor thanksgivingYour Thanksgiving celebration does not necessarily have to take place in the dining room. Have you considered hosting an outdoor Thanksgiving? This is a nice way of making optimal use of your outdoor living accessories. We’ll show you how to make this event a blast for your guests.

1. Keep the Food Warm

The food can quickly get cold outside. One option is to serve the food indoors and have the guests bring their plates to the patio. Alternatively, you can keep the food inside chafing dishes. This setup is also perfect for a buffet-style meal.

2. Prepare for the Weather

Autumn weather in Mukilteo can be quite chilly, especially once the sun sets. If you have an outdoor fire pit or fireplace, this is the ideal time to put it to use. This creates a lounge-like setting, which really sets the mood for socializing and enjoying a warm meal. We also recommend an awning of some type or patio curtains to shield the guests and food from high winds.

3. Break Out the Grill

An outdoor smoker is a terrific way to prepare a whole turkey. You can also cut the turkey to smaller pieces and prepare it on your standard barbecue grill. With this option, you can also tenderize or add spices according to individual guest preference.

4. Think About Your Lighting Options

If you fire up an outdoor pit or fireplace, then that’s your light source right there. Candles are another option, which gives the setting a warm and intimate vibe. Consider pillar candles with autumn or pumpkin scents.
