Tips To Organize Thanksgiving in Utah

Book You Rental Home With Anticipation

Like any other reunion, sometimes it is hard to find the perfect place to book. Add a holiday on top of that, and it makes availability very difficult to find. Normally the best resorts in Utah are booked at least 1 month in advance. That’s why you should start looking for a place at least 2 months in advance of Thanksgiving. That way you’ll have more options to choose from. To help you find the ideal family reunion rentals in Utah click on the link.

Make A Thanksgiving Team

We know that everyone wants to help but sometimes that can be annoying and it can create chaos. That’s why we recommend selecting people that will help you with the chores and will make the preparation easier. Depending on the number of guests, if it’s a small group(up to 10 people) 3-4 people will be enough to help, but if it’s more than 30 people you should probably pick between 6-8.

Assign Dish Duty

Coordinate with your team what dishes are you going to serve and try to designate who’s going to cook each one. This will help to organize the time in the kitchen. At Thanksgiving, many people plan way too much food that often gets wasted. A good way to avoid this is by planning more dishes, or dividing all of the leftovers for your guests to enjoy in the following days.

Pack Your Supplies

When you arrive at your rental home in St George, we provide a lot of the important tableware and supplies that you will need for your holiday feast; however, there are some important things to bring that are not provided. 

Check out our list for some of the most important things to remember.

Don't Forget To Decorate

It’s always nice to have some decoration in the dining room (if you can find some turkey decor everyone will love it) because it gives a more festive environment to the room. The colors that are associated with this holiday are red, gold/yellow, brown, and orange. Try to find ornaments or tableware in these colors to bring out the Thanksgiving spirit.

Keep Your Dishes Warm

With all the food that is prepared for your Utah Thanksgiving dinner, you need to be prepared to keep everything warm. Here are some ideas: use a toaster oven to keep smaller things warm, wrapping your turkey with foil will keep it warm and it will help it to not get too dry. You can also use a slow cooker to keep dressings and mashed potatoes warm.


Thanksgiving can be a lot of work, but it will all be worth it! It is an incredible way to get together with loved ones and enjoy quality time together.

You can experience great food, and in the spirit of the holiday season, take time to let everyone share what they are most thankful for. That is truly the recipe for an amazing Thanksgiving!

With these tips, you are ready to host the best Thanksgiving dinner in Utah and create new memories with your family in our rental homes at the Coral Canyon Resort.
