If you love to eat, be with your friends, and drink- Friendsgiving is just for you! Now don't get us wrong, we love a traditional family Thanksgiving, BUT sometimes it's nice to spend an evening without Aunt Carol asking why you still don't have a boyfriend. So, ladies and gentlemen, get on your party planning hat and take on the responsibility of throwing this years' Friendsgiving!
Gobble ‘til You Wobble!
The best part about Thanksgiving is clearly the food! But just because you're the host doesn't mean you have to break the bank. Designate your friends (well the ones that can cook) to bring their favorite dishes! You stick to the turkey and they stick to everything else!
Signature cocktails are always a good idea! Create an on-theme cocktail to pass around to your guests during appetizers. By having one cocktail, you'll avoid the mess and time of making a million different drinks. During dinner, keep wine at table to be paired with food.
Décor & More!
Décor is the best part of any holiday! Dress up your house with everything that you can imagine. Spruce up your tablespace with some festive pumpkins, pinecones and candles to create a cost-effective centerpiece. If you’re feeling adventurous, go to your local florist and have a fall garland made that will leave your guests speechless!
The party doesn't have to end when dinner is over! Keep the night rolling with some entertaining games. Fun board games like Cards Against Humanity can be a great way to get people laughing! You can even choose to do something more active and festive like Pumpkin cornhole!
Set out some disposable cameras and a festive back drop and you have the perfect set up to capture all the nights special moments! Develop the photographs after the party and send them out framed for the perfect Christmas gift!
Thankful for You!
Send your guests home with a little party favor for them to remember how fun your Friendsgiving was! You’re probably thinking “I have to spend more money” but it really doesn’t have to be expensive. Get some apples and caramel to make caramel apples, wrap them with paper and tie it with a note that says, “Thankful for you!” or “Thankful for Sweet Friends Like You!”. Your friends will love that it was personally made by you and the best part-it was inexpensive!
Friendsgiving is another way for you and your friends to hang out, relax, eat good food, and enjoy each other’s company. Who wouldn’t want to have Thanksgiving food twice, anyways?!
