July 7th, 2017 by Staff

Summer is always a special time at High Hampton Inn, but this season our property is part of a select portion of the country that will witness a rare celestial phenomenon – the Great American Eclipse! August 21 will be the first time in decades that a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States, making this an essential part of any traveler’s bucket list.

 

 

This once in a lifetime spectacle is a can’t miss performance put on by our planet that will completely morph day into night as the moon blocks the sun. High Hampton Inn will experience 2 minutes and 23 seconds of total darkness, which is one of the longest totalities in the country and the longest totality in Jackson County.

 

High Hampton Inn is offering front row seats to the spectacle of the season. In honor of the eclipse, we are hosting the Total Eclipse on the Rock Mountain House Party, where guests can celebrate with great food, signature drinks, live entertainment, special eclipse viewing glasses and more. For even more ways to experience the natural wonder, check out other Jackson County eclipse weekend happenings and events.

Tips on Putting Together the Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner

November 1st, 2016 by Staff

With Thanksgiving approaching fast, we are excited to share some tips on how to make your Thanksgiving dinner successful and memorable. Below are some insider tips from our culinary and event teams on how to make this Thanksgiving one for the books!

1. Preparing Your List

One of the best ways to tackle the big meal is by taking care when prepping your grocery list. Think through your guest list, taste preferences and portion sizes to better gauge your culinary needs. We recommend kicking it old school by jotting everything down on paper. Based on your guest list, plan on 4 oz. of each item per person. With so many courses to prep, keep it simple by offering only two to three veggie or protein options. This is one way to ease some stress without compromising taste.

 

2. Timing is Everything

While in your planning process, figure out how long each item takes to prep and cook. Create a production chart to better keep track of course prep order and cooking times. The planning process will help coordinate space and your table setup.

 

3. Not Everything Needs to be Homemade

Home-cooked meals are always a hit, but time and space constraints can make cooking an entire meal from scratch a daunting task. Dishes like cranberry sauce can easily be purchased from your local grocery store, but you do not have to settle for store bought. For that from-scratch touch, cranberry sauce can easily be spiced up with candied pecans, raisins or apples!

 

4. Deciding on Décor

When deciding on décor, start with a color scheme. Once you have a color scheme in mind, begin researching current tablescapping trends. Do not be afraid to mix themes like vintage with rustic or stainless steel with wood. For that final fall touch, use flowers in full bloom and pine cones for an especially festive look.

 

5. For a Big Impression, Try Sprucing up the Small Stuff

Sometimes smaller details like your bread rolls, hollandaise sauce or gravy can get overlooked. This time around, make small tweaks like glazing the turkey or sprucing up your sides can go a long way.

 

6. Remember to Have Fun!

While it may be stressful planning out a dinner party, always remember that the guests are coming for more than delicious food. They are also here for friends and family! Planning a party and prepping a meal can be stressful, so take a year off and instead plan a trip to High Hampton Inn! We will do all the work for you.
