It’s that time of year again, when we travel to gather with family from near and far. Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away! We all love a good Thanksgiving day celebration, but we’re also reeeeally loving the recent trend towards FRIENDSgiving celebrations, too! Whether it’s a gathering of people unable to travel to family this year, or an additional celebration held the weekend before or after Thanksgiving weekend, we are 100% on board with the more parties party!
This year, incorporate some fun new Friendsgiving ideas to create lasting memories! A great food-related Friendsgiving idea is to have your guests bring a special family dish with accompanying recipe cards to share the recipe with friends for future Thanksgivings.
Or, start with drinks and appetizers this year, complete with a gorgeous charcuterie spread on a personalized cheese board. For a cost-effective and sustainable choice, opt for eco-friendly bamboo as a beautiful alternative to a classic wood cheese board. Reminisce over the past year’s events while you nibble from your gorgeous grazing board.
For a meaningful Friendsgiving (or Thanksgiving!) party favor, design custom coasters that prompt their users to write in what they are most thankful for this year. Punch holes in the coaster and have twine or ribbon on hand, and voilá, a Christmas ornament keepsake. Your surfaces will stay nice and dry, and your guests will leave with a party favor they will definitely keep and enjoy throughout the holiday season!
Maybe this year’s Friendsgiving party originates from the reality that we all can’t travel home every single year, or that our sense of home has transitioned to the community we’re surrounded by in our daily lives. Or, maybe it started because the truth is, we want to celebrate with our friends, too, and not just by inviting them to come to our family gathering! Whatever the case, we’re here for it and loving it, and we think making it personalized will only make it better!
