Living in an apartment doesn’t mean missing out on a great Thanksgiving event with all of the best features. In fact, you might just be able to make your apartment-friendly Thanksgiving the best one yet. All you need are some awesome trends and tips to get you started.
Fantastic Appetizers and Drinks
Let’s discuss two of the best things about the holidays: having people over, food, and drinks! Right? We all love having something great to snack on and something refreshing to drink. So, what should you have?
Baked Brie Bites – If you’re looking to get fancy, this is a great way to do it. These bites are literally what they sound like, brie baked in puff pastry. And then you serve it with a sweet sauce; what could be better?
Cayenne Pecans – Want simple and easy to eat? These pecans are just the right mix of buttery and spicy and they’re going to be super easy to pop in your mouth by the handful.
Pigs in a Blanket – Even your youngest guests are going to love pigs in a blanket, right? What’s not to love, after all. Hot dogs with puff pastry? Sounds like a winner.
Hot Chocolate – When the days are getting colder, there’s nothing quite like a hot chocolate to make you feel great. And this one can be dressed up with all your favorite additions to make it perfect for everyone.
Hot Buttered Apple Cider – Another hot drink that’s a perfect match for the holidays is this one, which features apple brandy, apple juice, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, lemon juice, and nutmeg to create a savory drink that pairs with anything.
Games, Shows, and More
Dress up your apartment with some Thanksgiving staples, like just the right floral arrangement.
There are plenty of ways to use flowers to create a great atmosphere in your living space. Add chrysanthemums in a range of different colors to create the perfect vibe. Or use your favorite dried flowers (of any kind) to get a look that will last long after the Thanksgiving dishes are cleared away.
Another way to ramp up the apartment-friendly decorations is to use things like pumpkins (fake ones are great and can be used year after year), scarecrows (find small ones at your favorite craft store), and fake fruits and vegetables (or use the real ones you’re planning to eat with your meal).
Your apartment can be the life of the party. It can be the place everyone wants to be this holiday season. And it all starts with having the right look and feel to the space. And make sure that you bring in plenty of great food and drinks. Your family (and you) will be glad you did.
