It’s almost that time of the year! Halloween has passed and our new holiday obsession has officially settled in. Thanksgiving is, of course, a time to celebrate the joys of family. However, we believe the celebration of friends is equally as important. Our friends are the chosen family that carry us through our everyday lives and see a side of us those distant relatives never get to. We believe this calls for a celebration! Here are a couple of ideas to get your party planning motors in motion and to help you be the best Friendsgiving host of 2017!
Décor – It’s hard sometimes to create that Pinterest-worthy party without blowing your budget. After a little research, we found an idea from Lemon Thistle that will help you create the warm, fun atmosphere that every Friendsgiving should have. All you need is some Kraft mailing paper, a friend who has mastered the art of cursive and some simple white candles! It an easy, affordable way to spice up your party and leave you worry free of ruining a new table cloth. Throw in some white pumpkins and some greenery and there ya go!

Sips – What’s a party without some mimosas? Well, it’s still a party but mimosas are a huge plus. We must stay on theme though so we found the perfect compromise – Apple Cider Mimosas. We suggest heading to your local farmer’s market and grabbing some fresh cider, and don’t forget the champagne! Dip your rim with some cinnamon and top it with an apple wedge and your all set as seen at https://wholefully.com/two-ingredient-apple-cider-mimosas/.
Bites – This recipe found its way to us one day when we were scrolling through our Facebook feed and has been a Friendsgiving inspiration ever since! Guests (friends) have a combo of many different diets, including gluten-free. How do you satisfy and meet all their needs? Crustless apple pies of course! It’s an easy, delicious way to contribute and still make everyone feel happy and welcome. Not to mention that is one less (of the many) carbs you will be consuming.
