Thanksgiving has been celebrated since 1621 and originated as a way to celebrate a successful harvest. However, just because Thanksgiving is a traditional gathering, doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Keep reading for a few ways to spice up your Thanksgiving get together this year!

Decorate

Thanksgiving falls in between Halloween and Christmas which are both holidays that people usually go all out for in terms of decorating. Because of this, Thanksgiving decor is typically forgotten. Change it up this year by incorporating some fall decor into your Thanksgiving celebration. Add some pumpkins, dried corn, and gourds to your table setup and other places throughout your home.

Cook

Bacon

Everyone loves bacon, so even though this isn’t usually a part of thanksgiving dinner, no one will be upset by its presence. Try adding bacon bits to your mashed potatoes, or laying strips of bacon over your turkey as it cooks so that the turkey absorbs a bit of the bacon flavor. Additionally, you could try making a bacon gravy so those flavors can be incorporated into multiple dishes.

Mashed Potatoes

Put a fun and healthy spin on your mashed potatoes this year and make them with cauliflower! Believe it or not, cauliflower does not have to be an underwhelming side dish, you can make it star by adding the right garnishes like chives, and some cheddar cheese.

Celebrate

No matter what you end up eating or what your home looks like, Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all that you have in your life! Remember to tell your family and friends how thankful you are for them and make sure to spend time with them this holiday season.
