A Few Essentials When Hosting Thanksgiving at Your Lake Home

Turkey Day is quickly approaching, which means it's time to get together to give thanks, eat some delicious food, and create memories with family and friends. If you haven't hosted a Thanksgiving holiday yet it's one of the best ways to experience Thanksgiving celebrations, even more so if you own a second home at Lake of the Ozarks! Turn your Thanksgiving celebration into a family getaway to your lake retreat this holiday season for a seriously festive and immersible experience they won't soon forget! Now that you have the idea, here are a few tips to help ease the process of hosting thanksgiving from your Lake home.

Lake Home Atmosphere

Lake of the Ozarks is renowned for the beautiful Fall foliage, where vibrant hues of red, yellow, and orange take over the pristine hardwood forests, making it the perfect Thanksgiving setting, and you can expand this sense even further by using natural seasonal decor when decorating the interior and exterior of your vacation home. Using items such as pumpkins, wheat stalks, gourds, acorns, autumn leaves, and branches are just some examples of natural decor that enhance the Fall atmosphere. This will help you create a wonderful experience for your guests as they celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. 

"Stuffing" the Kitchen

You'll likely have an entire spreadsheet filled with things that need to be done before the Thanksgiving celebrations can begin. It's a lot for anyone to remember, so while your "stuffing" the turkey, don't forget to "stuff" the kitchen as well. Here are a few essentials that you'll want to ensure you have around the kitchen:
  • Turkey baster
  • Meat thermometer
  • Varying sizes of pots & pans
  • Ladles, whisks, & spatulas
  • Sharp knives
  • Pie Tins
  • Baking Sheets
  • Roasting pans

We'll leave the food list to you, but some essential cooking items that are often overlooked are cooking oil, milk, butter, spices, and flour. Just in case they missed the first list.

Plan Fun Activities Around the Lake

Everyone has their own way of celebrating Thanksgiving, whether it's playing football outside, watching the game inside, or chatting up friends and family, it's important to have activities planned so that everyone can enjoy Thanksgiving in their own way. If some of the guests are ready to see what Lake of the Ozarks has to offer this time of year, check out  FunLake for a calendar full of events and holiday activities. So whether it's crashing on the sofa after the meal or hitting the town for horseback riding, pumpkin picking, hiking, or fishing, there's something for everyone here at Lake of the Ozarks.

Buy a Lake Home

If you're in love with the idea of celebrating Thanksgiving at a vacation home at Lake of the Ozarks but don't own a lake home yet, don't worry! Now is an excellent time of year to purchase a home at the Lake, the interest rates are phenomenal, the housing market is booming, and there are motivated sellers looking to begin their new chapter while you begin yours.
