Safe Ways to Spend Thanksgiving in Aurora

Thanksgiving in AuroraThanksgiving in Auruora is usually the time of year where family and friends come together to celebrate all that we are thankful for.  With the pandemic still affecting how we gather this year one of our favorite holidays may look a little different this year. 

If you are looking for a way to downscale this Thanksgiving holiday here are five ideas for celebrating Thanksgiving in Aurora this year.

Host a Pot Luck

Invite a few friends or family over for a Thanksgiving pot luck. Be certain to assign a variety of dishes from appetizers, to sides, and dessert. Use decorative paper plates, napkins, and silverware to make the task of cleaning easier and the need for multiple people in the kitchen at a minimum.

Thanksgiving Take Out

You can also order a turkey online from William-Sonoma or Harry and David.
