Throwing a Friendsgiving Party

Thanksgiving is less than 10 days away, are you planning on throwing a Friendsgiving party? This nifty little party is just like a family Thanksgiving gathering, but instead of your in-laws, cousins, and grandparents, you celebrate with your friends!

If you are toying with the idea and need a little help on how to prepare, then we have you covered! Below we have compiled a list of Friendsgiving must-haves, decorating ideas, recipes, and helpful hints for throwing your first, or maybe tenth, Friendsgiving celebration!


From top left to bottom right

  1. Create a fun backdrop to take photos with friends. You can purchase disposable cameras or use your phone. We promise the pictures will be an amazing way to document all your festive fun.
  2. You don’t need to break the bank in order to create Fall decorations. If you find leaves outside you can spray paint them, add glitter, and hang! Suspend them from the ceiling with yarn, ribbon, or twine to add a festive, fall look to any room.
  3. Hollowing out a few pumpkins and gourds can turn a simple tea light into a stunning center piece. Find out how to make these pumpkin candle holders here.
  4. Who doesn’t love Thanksgiving leftovers? Create fun ‘to-go’ containers for your guests to pack some leftovers after the party. They will get an easy meal at home and you won’t be stuck trying to eat it all!
