Last Minute 4-Step Friendsgiving
Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? If you are freaking out that you haven't planned your Friendsgiving beyond setting the date, we are breaking it down for you on how to host a simple Friendsgiving brunch or dinner.
All tableware details are linked at the bottom of this post!
1. Send out invitations
This can be as simple as creating a group text, making a free evite online or maybe it's as extravagant as handwritten calligraphy invitations. Either way, make sure to include all the important details. Location, make sure they have your current address. Time, let your guests know when you want them to arrive. Maybe you are doing something later; always include the full itinerary.
2. Plan the menu
Are you supplying the entire meal yourself? Always remember, you don't have to do this alone :) People are always more than willing to bring something. Maybe it's a baguette, or a bottle of wine? Maybe even dessert. Let your guests know how they can help out.
If you assign each person a course, your job is done! Plan out your space accordingly for all the food that is going to be brought in.
I am not going to provide you with all of my secret recipes because I'm sure there must be a infamous recipe you are hiding from me as well. If not, my go-to is Pinterest. So easy to navigate and every meal I have made has been phenomenal. I love Fit Foodie Finds- local Minneapolis blogger!
3. Make sure you have enough serving ware and set the table
This is the best part... or at least my favorite; setting the table. Take into consideration the size of your table and counter space so you can make sure you have a enough seating for your guests. I always suggest doing a buffet style if you have space for it.
It's Friendsgiving; ditch the paper cups and bring out those champagne flutes you splurged on last year.
In our house we always use linen napkins, if you don't have any, I suggest investing in some! Linen napkins are not only eco-friendly, they can be super affordable and add a level of luxe to impress your guests.
4. Cheers! Enjoy the meal you made with friends
Soak it all in. Friendsgiving is all about coming together and spending quality time with the ones you love.
Our first look is for a brunch inspired Friendsgiving. We love the warm glow of this color palette mixed with fall colors.
Our second look is for a casual dinner course. This is a more muted color palette, nonetheless perfect for a meal that will steal the show.
Make sure to take pictures of your Friendsgiving and tag us on Instagram, we would love to see you using our styling tips in your home.
