How To Plan a Cozy Thanksgiving at Home

Your Thanksgiving celebration may look a little different this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead of celebrating the holiday with extended family and friends you might be preparing for a smaller celebration at home with immediate family members. Even though this year’s holiday looks different there are plenty of ways to stay festive while enjoying a smaller socially distanced Thanksgiving at home. Keep reading for these six simple ways to enjoy Thanksgiving- quarantine style. 

Focus on Gratitude 

There is no doubt about it, 2020 has been a trying year. For many, the holidays will look very different from years past making it difficult to get into the holiday spirit. Studies have shown that practicing gratitude is one of the best ways to lift your spirits. Luckily, there are many ways to practice gratitude; everything from starting a gratitude journal to simply sharing what you’re thankful for with your loved ones at the dinner table. By focusing on the good we can make it through this difficult year.

Decorate For The Season

One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to decorate for the season. Even if you aren’t hosting, putting out some fall decor is sure to get you in the mood to celebrate. A fragrant fall candle, a Thanksgiving centerpiece, and some fall throw pillows are sure to elevate your Thanksgiving Day celebration.

Cook Your Favorites 

Celebrating Thanksgiving with your favorite dishes is a must. Even if your Thanksgiving dinner will be smaller this year, you can still prepare an amazing feast. Whether you plan to simplify the menu (less dishes- for the win!) or still plan to go all out (did someone say leftovers?), enjoying your favorite dishes is sure to keep your holiday spirit intact.

Celebrate You Favorite Traditions 

With everything feeling so different this year remembering to celebrate your favorite Thanksgiving traditions is more important than ever, even if you have to modify them a little bit. There are still so many fun and nostalgic traditions you can participate in from the comfort of your home. Watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, kick back and watch some football, or play your favorite holiday movie to bring back some normalcy to this Thanksgiving.

Create New Traditions

Aside from celebrating your existing traditions, this is the perfect year to start some new traditions. Watch a movie at home, have a board game night, or craft some new holiday decorations together. Whatever new traditions you create, they are sure to be remembered for years to come.

Stay In Touch With Family

Even if you can’t physically be with your loved ones this Thanksgiving, there are plenty of creative ways to stay in touch and celebrate together. Send your loved ones their favorite treats, call them to let them know how thankful you are for them, or better yet host a virtual party. Zoom and Skype parties are a great way to get everyone together to celebrate whether it’s just to toast, play games, or to laugh and reminisce the night away.
