Turkey time is near! Is your kitchen ready for the fall festivities? It’s tough carving time out of our busy schedules to prepare for the holidays. Work, school, sports, clubs, and more are all in full swing. You almost need another set of hands…or a comprehensive to-do list from the experts at Cabinets To Go.
Are you ready? We’ve made a Thanksgiving to-do list that’ll get you ready in no time.
Protect precious countertops with butcher paper. Lay butcher paper out like a table runner to protect your surfaced. If you find the paper plain-looking, add some of Mother Nature’s natural decor.
Bring nature indoors for natural, elegant decor. Carefully selected fall leaves, bark, pinecones, or acorns can add an authentic feel to store-bought Thanksgiving decor.
Cut and arrange evergreen fall foliage in vases. If you don’t have time to find the perfect greenhouse flowers at the store, go outside and cut samples of evergreen trees and plants. Evergreen is a trendy color this year, and it’ll have an ultra-natural look to your space.
When in doubt, add pumpkins! Pumpkins are still in style at this time of year and are likely to be on sale now that Halloween is over. Snatch up a colorful assortment for Earthy, heritage-style decor.
Go ahead: eat dessert first. While everyone’s waiting for turkey time, keep hangry guests happy with paintable sugar cookies. Pre-baked cookies offer the perfect canvas for frosting-splattered masterpieces. (Worried about post-cookie clean up? Check out our kitchen cleaning hacks.)
A string of lights will add some sparkle to your kitchen. Something as simple as extra lighting shows guest you went the extra mile, while also bringing out the beauty of fall colors.
Don’t worry about finding the perfect outfit for entertaining: get cozy in your robe. Other holidays have costumes or ugly sweater parties. Why not start a new Thanksgiving tradition by having guests B.Y.O.R. — bring your own robe? Everyone’s comfortable, cozy, and happy.
Make a pine-cone wreath to showcase what you’re thankful for. With a pile of pinecones and a little glue, you can create a wreath that’s perfect for holding little messages on strips of paper.
Make your own decor by temporarily repurposing family picture frames with festive print-outs. For decor that’s quick to make but doesn’t look cheap, find Thanksgiving-style artwork online to print, frame, and then arrange around the kitchen space.
Make seasonal candle holders out of twigs or cinnamon sticks. Dress up plain old candles with a wreath of cinnamon sticks. These will also smell great as the candle warms up. Don’t worry if you don’t have cinnamon, though. Cut-and-cleaned twigs can also add a woodsy, artistic feel.
Keep the earthy vibe going by painting rocks in fall colors. Rock painting is all the rage these days, and you can use the beautiful golds, whites, browns, and greens of fall to bring out their natural beauty.
Use Thanksgiving style spices to make rooms smell nice if you’re not doing any cooking. When you can’t rely on baking turkeys or roasting vegetables to make your kitchen smell nice, simmer seasonal spices on the stove in water to release their natural scents.
These carefully curated ideas are just a handful of our favorites. We also love to see what ideas our customers come up with! Tag us in social posts to show off your decked out kitchens and how you got ready for the holidays.
