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:
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!!
