If you are hosting Thanksgiving you are probably already stressing about how to do it right this year! After a long tough year a lot of us are really looking forward to the holidays and Thanksgiving is kind of the unofficial start of all that. Don’t let the stress of planning the perfect Thanksgiving in Tulsa wear you down, use this plan to get ahead so you can enjoy yourself completely when the day arrives!
Thanksgiving In Tulsa | Thanksgiving Checklist
We’re going to work our way through the most difficult parts of planning for hosting Thanksgiving. Hopefully some of these things are items that you didn’t even think of…we want you to have everything covered so you can have the most perfect Thanksgiving in Tulsa this year!
The first thing is decorations. Get those checked off the Thanksgiving checklist early and first. They can be simple, use your fall decorations and just remove any of the bats, halloween themed items, etc.
Autumn in Tulsa is a beautiful time of year so you can also throw those curtains open and let some of that fall beauty shine in through the windows!
Inventory Kitchen Supplies
There is nothing worse than waking up on the day you need to cook a big meal and realizing that you don’t have the right pots, pans, roasting or basting gear, etc. Do a run through of your kitchen supplies and make sure that everything is in order. If you let someone borrow some tools you’ll need, now is the time to ask for them back or order new ones!!
Thanks to online shopping and curbside pickup at most stores these days you can get everything you’ll need for your Thanksgiving meal without having to go into the store.
The next thing that should be on your Thanksgiving checklist if you are hosting thanksgiving is the groceries. You need to order those ahead of time! Don’t wait until the day before or the day of, it might seem smart so you have the freshest of the fresh ingredients but truly, it’s risky.
With the pandemic and everyone being prone to panic shopping you won’t want to wait to get your groceries until the last minute. The good news is that most Thanksgiving staples hold up well, things like root veggies, frozen turkey, etc. can be kept on hand without worrying about them going bad!
Ordering groceries is great because you don’t have to deal with the impulse buying in the store. You can get exactly what you need on your list and not have to debate any last minute changes to your meal plan.

Clean The House
This is the last thing on the list for a reason…it’s hard to keep a house clean…so just clean it last! That way you are working in a clean kitchen and you have the added bonus of not having to run around the day of straightening up and dusting.
Just plan to get the house cleaned the day before so you know that it is done and you don’t have to wake up and spend the whole morning stressing about cleaning AND keeping an eye on the kitchen where all your wonderful Thanksgiving recipes are cooking.
