How To Host Friendsgiving!

I hosted my first Friendsgiving this year and I believe it was a hit! Below I’ll share what I think helped make it a little more special 🙂

I first headed to Michaels to find some decor to place as the runner on our dining room table. If you go right after Halloween they had all Fall items 80% off! Which was a huge score, this stuff can add up pretty quick in price. My mom and I grabbed two floral garlands and some extra flowers and leaves to place inside! Our final outcome was beautiful:

I picked up our plates, silverware, glass ware, wine glasses, serving utensils from Fortessa! I will link everything here:

You can find their homepage HERE on Amazon!

Accessories purchased:

I got some items made from Etsy #SupportSmallBusiness and then the rest I needed came from Amazon! I placed everyones name tags on their plates and made sure I sat everyone by people they don’t see very often. I wanted us to all be able to catch up and talk!

Also on their chairs I left some surprises….I did matching PJ sets, a face mask and fuzzy slipper socks. It was a simple but thoughtful touch that was fun for all of us to change into after the fact!

This would also be a fun idea for any holiday / Christmas get togethers!

For food I went a total different route! I ordered take out from our favorite local restaurants. Everything from crab fried rice to chicken wings! I thought it was a nice switch up since I know everyone was going to be having a turkey dinner soon anyways! 🙂 I purchased food from Sense of Thai and Ashburn Pub!

I ordered a cake and cupcakes (they got eaten too fast lol) from two local businesses that we all love. If you’re local I highly recommend them!!

At the end of the day, any get together with friends is important and fun. You don’t need to go all out, grab a pizza and chat!
