How to Host Thanksgiving Dinner in a Small Space

Maybe it’s your turn to host Thanksgiving this year or perhaps you’re just feeling festive and ready to give it a try! Thanksgiving should be a wonderful day to share time and precious moments with friends and family. When you have a small space, there are three tips to keep in mind to help ensure that everything goes smoothly and everyone has a wonderful time.

Hide the Mess
If you can, try “cleaning as you go,” which means that while you cook, you’re also doing your best to keep your space clean and dishes put away. If this doesn’t work, one way to keep dirty dishes out of sight is by placing them into the bathtub until after all your guests are gone.

Create a Buffet
If you don’t have enough room for a “sit-down” Thanksgiving dinner, then consider having dinner buffet style. You don’t need a buffet table to have enough room for all of the food. Consider using your kitchen or stove-top. Even the tiniest kitchens can be used to spread out a variety of dishes.

Rearrange your Space
When having people over, you’re going to want to create room for them to talk and mingle. Consider moving your furniture around so guests can walk through your apartment easily. Be sure to also remove accessories and leave room on flat surfaces for drinks and plates.
