3 Tips for Planning a Thanksgiving Menu that Every Guest Will Love

Thanksgivilng dinner

The hallmarks of a great Thanksgiving party are family fun, delicious food, and afternoon naps. However, the success of the entire day depends on the meal. You can help ensure that you host a great holiday dinner by handling logistics, such as dishware rental and menu planning, well in advance. Use this Thanksgiving menu guide to plan a meal that every guest will love.

Remember Allergies: An inclusive Thanksgiving menu always require a bit of research. First, determine if any of your guests have allergies or food restrictions. You should be especially conscious of guests with gluten allergies or nut allergies. You can help prevent allergic reactions and ensure that no guest goes hungry by including several allergy-friendly alternatives in your Thanksgiving spread.

Think Green: One of the easiest ways to create an accessible Thanksgiving menu is to focus on the vegetables. There are many ways to make a meat-free dish that is palatable for every set of taste buds. Mashed potatoes, for example, are a Thanksgiving favorite that any guest can enjoy—remember to provide a meatless gravy option, too. You could even prepare a tofu turkey if your guest list includes several vegetarians. However, a varied selection of tasty veggie dishes can also act as a stand-in for the traditional bird.

Recruit Help: You don’t have to tackle the Thanksgiving challenge alone. This is especially true if you are cooking a tricky dish or preparing food for a specialty diet. Simply ask a friend to offer tips or help you prepare the dish ahead of time.

You can save time and effort this Thanksgiving by renting your service materials from American Party Rental. We can provide formal dishware, table linens, and more. Call us at (512) 837-6500 if you have questions about our diverse inventory.
