Prepare a Guest List

One of the most important factors to consider when preparing Thanksgiving dinner in an apartment is structuring apartment kitchens and making room for guests. Preparing to host a significant holiday means planning for meals and fun activities. Use your guest list as a resource when grocery shopping, cooking in an apartment kitchen and planning holiday game ideas. Cooking in an apartment kitchen requires a bit of maneuvering to make your Thanksgiving gathering a success.

Menu Plan and Organization

Once you’ve chosen your guest list, it’s time to decide on appetizers, drinks, and desserts you’d like to serve for Thanksgiving dinner. Since you’re likely to be cooking more than usual, making accommodations in your apartment kitchen is essential. Decide what pots and pans you will use with each dish and place them in the kitchen. If you have limited space after this, determine on creating these meals in segments or shifts.
