Give Thanks in the Great Outdoors: Host Thanksgiving in Your Fenced Backyard

Thanksgiving is a time for gathering loved ones, sharing delicious food, and expressing gratitude. This year, why not take your celebration outdoors and transform your fenced backyard into a warm and inviting Thanksgiving haven? Here’s how to make the most of your space for a memorable holiday gathering. 

Setting the Stage: 

  • Seating for All: Utilize the space within your fence line. Arrange comfortable seating for your guests with folding tables and chairs. You can always rent additional furniture for larger gatherings. 
  • Festive Touches: Don’t forget the decorations! String lights hung along the fence line or draped over tree branches create a warm ambiance. Colorful fall leaves, pumpkins, and gourds scattered throughout add a touch of seasonal charm. 
  • Don’t Forget the Comfort: If the temperature dips in the evening, provide throws and blankets for guests to stay cozy. Consider renting a tent or setting up a large canopy for additional protection from the elements. 

Cooking Up a Feast: 

  • Grill Power: Take advantage of the outdoors! If you have a grill, use it to its full potential. Thanksgiving turkey can be perfectly smoked or roasted on the grill, while vegetables and side dishes can also be prepared outdoors. 
  • Buffet Bliss: A fenced backyard allows for easy traffic flow. Set up a buffet table within the fence line, close enough to the action but not in the way of gathering areas. This allows guests to serve themselves easily and keeps the flow of conversation going. 
  • Keeping it Warm: Keeping food warm outdoors can be a challenge. Invest in chafing dishes with warming elements to ensure your Thanksgiving spread stays hot and delicious. 

Fun and Games for All Ages: 

  • Games Galore: Having a fenced yard provides a safe and contained space for games. Set up classics like cornhole or ladder toss, or create a fun scavenger hunt within the fenced area for the kids. A  game of pin the feather on the turkey tail can also be fun! 
  • Cozy Corner: Dedicate a space for relaxation. String up a hammock or set up comfy chairs for guests who want to take a break from the festivities and enjoy the beautiful fall weather. 
  • Fireside Fun: If your fence allows for it, create a fire pit area. This becomes a natural gathering spot, providing warmth and a cozy ambiance for conversation and roasting marshmallows. 

By utilizing your fenced backyard and incorporating these tips, you can host a Thanksgiving dinner that’s both memorable and enjoyable. So, embrace the outdoors this holiday season, and create a Thanksgiving celebration that celebrates the bounty of the harvest and the company of loved ones.
