This year is the perfect time to create new memories and traditions. So… I invite you to feast your eyes on this spread of quarantine-friendly Thanksgiving ideas!</span></span></p>

The CDC has stated that being outdoors reduces the risk of exposure to COVID-19, and fall foliage makes for a wonderful backdrop to your Thanksgiving celebration. What may have been an evening Thanksgiving dinner can be moved to brunch or lunch so you will have hours of natural light, and more time to celebrate. Yard and deck space can be utilized to host a small gathering with tables, chairs, blankets, and warm drinks.
