Friendsgiving is a great way to connect with friends and show them we are grateful for their friendship even if we don’t see them on a regular basis.

Tips for Hosting the Perfect Friendsgiving:

  • Potluck- Everyone brings something.  As the host, you are in charge of the turkey and drinks!  

  • What are the appropriate serving sizes?  Use these charts to find out how much is enough.

  • Decorations: Keep it simple!  Go- to decorations are a table runner, mini pumpkins and candles spaced on the table.  Grab a flower bouquet (stick with orange/yellow/fall shades) and divide it up among several vases or various sizes on the table and your serving counter.

  • Set the tone with music.  Get the guests in the mood with your favorite tunes playing on Alexa as they arrive.

  • Gratitude board- When guests arrive, have them write what they are grateful for this season on the board.  

  • Have guests BYOT- bring your own Tupperware.  With all that food, you will be sure to want to send some home!

  • Desserts- your guests may bring desserts, but be ready with the coffee and hot chocolate!
