How to Host a Friendsgiving

How to Host a Friendsgiving

November 20, 2017

Thanksgiving is the perfect time of year to remind your friends that you are grateful to have them in your life. In addition to (or perhaps instead of) a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, consider hosting a Friendsgiving to remind your chosen family just how special they are. Follow these helpful tips so your dinner goes off without a hitch and your guests leave with pleasantly plump bellies.

  • The host makes the turkey and gravy. Everything else is divided among the guests potluck style.
  • Don’t forget the finger food and snacks. It’s important to have chips and dips or a good cheeseboard out for friends to snack on while they wait for everyone else to arrive.
  • Everyone should contribute a bottle of wine, liquor, or seasonal beverage such as apple cider.
  • Don’t forget the ice!
  • Set a festive table, and decorate your space! Nothing sets the tone for a party like a beautiful table and a little holiday decor. Check out these Friendsgiving decor hacks to simply spruce up your space.
  • Create a dinner playlist. Every good gathering has background music. This might be a good task to assign to a friend with the best taste in music.
  • Reserve a clean-up crew. You’ve made a turkey, set the table and spent the entire evening being a gracious host – you deserve a little help with the clean up
