How to Throw a Festive Friendsgiving

In recent years, the idea of traditional family Thanksgiving has paved the way for an extended, often early version of a Thanksgiving meal, but with friends aka, Friendsgiving! Friendsgiving is a time for you to get together with your closest friends and share a yummy meal, while catching up and hanging out during a season that tends to be super busy for most. Having the perfect friendsgiving doesn’t take too much work on the hostess end, so we are here to help you get the ball rolling to plan Friendsgiving with your people!

First things first, decide who you are inviting and what kind of food you all want to have. It can be a traditional thanksgiving menu, complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls and pie or you can take it a different direction with a buffet of finger foods and charcuterie - totally up to you!

Next - decor! No matter how many guests you are expecting or what kind of food you are planning to have, a little decor really adds to the ambiance and gets everyone feeling the holiday spirit. Balloons are our go-to for party decor, whether they are in a fall color scheme or giant foil letters - the balloons are a hit and they make the perfect backdrop for photos!

Last but not least, do not forget to have fun! Friendsgivings are all about getting together with your pals and spending time together over a meal. Divide up the dishes and have everyone bring something, the menu will fall in place super easy and will alleviate some of the stress that you might be feeling. Happy planning!
