Apartments in Gainesville, Florida are Perfect for Hosting a Small Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving dinner is a time-honored American tradition where family and friends come together to eat great food and reconnect. Every family needs a member to step up and host the gathering – an often daunting and time-consuming task. If you’ve decided this is your year to host, there’s no need to panic. Taking the proper measures and decorating your apartment appropriately will ensure you host a memorable Thanksgiving dinner.

Some important steps to take when hosting Thanksgiving dinner in apartments in Gainesville, Florida are:

  • Make sure to take an accurate head count of guests that will be coming so you know how much food to prepare
  • Plan your meal well in advance down to the smallest detail – remember to include spices, condiments, and other ingredients as well as making sure you have the proper cookware
  • Send out formal invitations to your desired guests
  • Remember to thaw out and season the turkey at least a day in advance
  • Decorate your apartment appropriately – festive table cloths, napkins, plates, and other items are always a fun and welcome addition
  • Remember that many other residents living around you are trying to enjoy their holiday, too, so please do what you can to avoid excessive noise

Hosting a good Thanksgiving dinner will vault you to family hero status. Remember, this is a big task so feel free to ask guests to bring an item for the meal like pumpkin pie, salad, wine, and other groceries.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
