Get all your loved ones together for a safe, no-travel, virtual Thanksgiving! Technology has made it easier than ever to stay connected no matter the distance. Put it to good use for a holiday gathering that’ll be one for the books. We’ve got 5 simple steps to help you host:

 1. Choose a platform.

First things first! You’ll need to pick a platform for your holiday hosting. Choose one of the easily accessible options like Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts. Think of it as your big virtual dining table – that never runs out of room!

 2. Send out invitations.

Fill everyone in on this year’s Thanksgiving details with customizable e-invitesWhether you go for sleek and modern or bright and festive, your loved ones will be thrilled. Plus, you can now invite as many people as you’d like. 

 3. Play party games. 

Fight off the post-turkey nap with fun activities for the whole group. You can’t go wrong with charades, scavenger hunts, and bingo. You can even print a free version of Cards Against Humanity for the adults to play!

 4. Have photo booths.

It wouldn’t be the holidays without a ton of (embarrassing) pictures. Everyone’s already on camera, so no need to be shy. Snap away and save memories with the help of a virtual photo booth

 5. Use custom backgrounds.

Bring your personality to the table with a variety of virtual backgrounds. No need to clean up for company. You can cozy up next to a fireplace or enjoy white, sandy beaches – the world is your oyster.
