Tips to Having a Thanksgiving Picnic

| December 2, 2011

No doubt – the Thanksgiving Day is one of the most awaited holidays in the country! Why not? The long weekend allows people to do different activities. One of them is picnic. The weather in November may be brisk but it is still fun to stay outdoors especially when you are going to spend outdoors with your family in a picnic. If you think a picnic is something you and your family would enjoy this Thanksgiving Day, keep reading and learn from our tips below.

1. Choose a space for your Thanksgiving Day picnic


You can have your picnic in your backyard or you can go farther at the park. These two have advantages. If you have your picnic in your backyard, you can easily access your kitchen for picnic tools and for heating dishes. If you have your picnic at the park, you can take advantage of the nice views and sightseeing and of course, a bigger space for family activities.

2. Make sure to prepare traditional Thanksgiving Day dishes


It’s Thanksgiving Day! It’s just right that you prepare the usual dishes to remind yourself and your family the essence of this day. Some of the dishes to prepare and take to your picnic are potatoes, stuffing, rolls and butter, cranberries, and pumpkin pie. These are not hard to prepare and are not hard to transport either, should you wish to have your Thanksgiving Day picnic at a place other than your home or your backyard.

3. Don’t forget to take the grill


Thanksgiving Day will not be complete without that fat turkey on the plate. So make sure to take the grill and set it up close to the seating area so you and your family can enjoy the warmth in the midst of brisk weather.

4. Don’t forget the picnic accessories


Make sure you pack all the picnic accessories beforehand if you are having your picnic at another place. The last thing you want is to find out that you forgot some picnic accessories at home.

5. Give thanks for this day, for the food and for the people who are with you on this day.


It’s Thanksgiving Day! It’s just right that you give thanks for everything. That’s the real essence of this day!
