Planning an Adult Only Thanksgiving Party


Have you recently made the decision to host a Thanksgiving party? If so, have you decided on which type of party you would like to have? If you are looking for a nice way to celebrate Thanksgiving with other adults, namely your friends, you may be interested in hosting an adult only Thanksgiving party. An adult only Thanksgiving party may not only be a little bit easier for you to plan, but it is a party that your guests will likely enjoy attending.

When it comes to planning an adult only Thanksgiving party, as previously mentioned, the planning is a little bit easier than the planning associated with a children’s party or a party that is for individuals of all ages. Despite the fact that it may be easier to plan an adult only Thanksgiving party, you will still find that there is a fairly large amount of planning and preparation that is needed. In most cases, you will find that the sooner you start planning your adult only Thanksgiving party, the sooner you can start to enjoy yourself.

As with all other parties, including Thanksgiving parties, it is important that you invite your guests. In fact, before you start planning the rest of your Thanksgiving party, it is advised that you invite your guests first. Thanksgiving, as well as the rest of the holiday season, is a busy time. You will want to give your guests their invites early, preferably at least a month in advance. An early invite will help to ensure that your guests do not make other plans for that day or evening. It is also advised that you inform your guests, on their invitation, of your party status. Unless your Thanksgiving party guests know that your party has an adult only theme, they may bring their children along with them.

After you have started inviting your guests, or at least made a guest list, you can begin to start planning and preparing for the rest of your Thanksgiving party. One of the first things that you will want to do is decide what type of food, drinks, or snacks that you want to serve. Since you are having an adult only party, it may be a good idea to have alcoholic beverages on hand. It is not required that you serve alcohol at your Thanksgiving party, but you will likely find that most of your guests expect you to. In addition to whether or not you want to serve alcohol at your party, you will also need to decide whether or not you want your party to include dinner. If not, a wide array of snacks should be more than enough.

Although we often associate party games with children, there are many adults who enjoy playing party games. Party games are a great source of entertainment for any party, including an adults’ only party. Online, you should easily be able to find a number of adult themed party games. You can find these ideas with a standard internet search. In addition to using the internet, you can also find a collection of party games at many of your local retail stores. While these games will likely not have a focus on Thanksgiving, you and your party guests may still enjoy playing them.

It may also be a good idea to decide where, in your home, your Thanksgiving party will take place. Many party hosts have their parties in more than one room, but the decision is completely yours to make. Many Thanksgiving parties take place in the kitchen, dinning room, family room, den, or living room. In addition to preparing your rooms for your party, by cleaning them, you can also decide how you would like them decorated. Any party, including a Thanksgiving party, isn’t complete without a little bit of festive spirit; spirit that Thanksgiving party decorations generate.

As you can see, there is still a fairly large amount of planning that goes into hosting an adult only Thanksgiving party. Despite all of the planning and preparation that is needed, you will likely be pleased with your decision to host a party for your family, friends, and anyone else who you choose to invite.

The Bissell Spotbot Pet Has These Great Features:




The Spotbot Pet has automatic cycles, allowing you to choose a setting and press a button then let the machine finish the work for you.


From the Bottom Up


The Bissell Spotbot Pet’s Deep Reach Technology carries the powerful cleaning solution right to the deepest part of the stain. The machine’s gentle scrubbing action will then lift the stain from its roots; thus, removing the entire mark without leaving anything behind.


Unique Spiral Brushing Action


This spot and stain cleaner effectively removes stain by using the Unique Spiral Brushing Action. It employs up to 400 cleaning revolutions in a single surface cleaning cycle. This action is the major enemy of stains.


Erases Odor-Causing Substance


The Spotbot Pet has a built in Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection. This component inhibits the growth of odor-causing substance such as bacteria, mildew and molds.


Powerful Cleaning Solution


It comes with powerful cleaning solutions: the Oxy Gen 2 and 2X Ultra Pet Stain & Odor Chemical. Both are effective in erasing stains; the latter can actually remove odor, too.


For Manual Cleaning, Too


Spots and stains on car carpets, stairs and upholstery are erased by using the Spotbot Pet’s manual clean setting. The machine comes with a hose and tool for spot-cleaning hard-to-reach corners.


The Good and the Bad


Since nothing is perfect, the Spotbot Pet also has its share of flaws.




  • can effectively handle small stains


  • easy to use


  • has several useful settings


  • hands-free operation


  • compact and lightweight


  • has a carry handle


  • comes with a long 16-foot cord


  • it holds 32 ounces of cleaning solution


  • cleans up to 7-inch in diameter at a time


  • the tank is easy to fill and rinse



  • Cons:


  • noisy – it can really disturb a sleeping person or frighten your cat


  • does not work well on large stains


  • takes a while to finish a task


  • leaves noticeable circular spots



User Review


The Bissell Spotbot Pet will definitely change your stain-ridden life. It is very easy to use, the instructions are really simple: Fill the canister and push a button! It finishes the job in 3-6 minutes, depending on the size of the stain. The Spotbot Pet uses a spiral brushing action, which effectively removes stain; and the trial cleaners work well in eliminating odors, too. The size is perfect for small stains and makes storing it easier. It can fit under a garage stool or inside a small cupboard.


The catch. Of course it is not perfect. We are yet to find a perfect carpet-cleaner. You will notice that it can be a bit noisy while cleaning. Your cat or dog will definitely hate it on their very first encounter. It has this annoying end-of-cycle beep, too; which was supposed to be a feature, really. Since it is a SPOT CLEANER, it tends to leave really clean spots that are so obvious. It is great that it does it job well, but it makes your carpet look like it had an alien invasion lately.


Overall, you cannot live with the Spotbot Pet once you’ve tried it. It may have its downs, but has a great deal of ups, too. Maybe those left-on circles are just a way of telling you that your carpet probably needs a full cleaning blast.  After all, the clean circles won’t appear that obvious if your carpet is actually clean. And the noise will become bearable once you get used to it. Just a tip: use as little cleaning solution as possible because this cleaning monster ‘froths’ a lot and too much carpet shampoo may result to fiber stiffness.


By the way, the Bissell Spotbot Pet is on sale at Amazon.com.
