Thanksgiving is all about family, gratitude and preparing a delicious meal … sitting around the table and being thankful for the bounty that nature has offered for the harvest. Right? We all wish our Thanksgiving season could feel this simple, but let’s be real: holidays are tough. There are schedules to coordinate, guests to accommodate, meals to execute without the use of a fire extinguisher, and a multitude of things to plan. When it comes to having guests, whether overnight or just in for the day, we can take some of the stress off by being well-prepared.
Preparing for the influx of Thanksgiving holiday guests requires a lot of forethought. It helps to remember that everything doesn’t have to be perfect. If you understand your guests and what they enjoy (it’s a great time to show off some of Portland’s scenery or partake in holiday hoopla!) or their preferences for privacy and accommodations, you can create a great atmosphere in which to enjoy the warmth of the holidays. The Heat Relief Heating & Cooling team is sharing ten easy ways to help keep your Thanksgiving guests comfortable this holiday season!
