This year my friends and I decided to have a Friendsgiving. If you’ve never heard of Friendsgiving, it’s basically what the name entails…thanksgiving for friends pretty much. Life typically gets in the way and everyone has their own family to eat and be with on Thanksgiving day. Friendsgiving is a way where you can make time and still get that Thanksgiving experience together. This will be my first ever Friendsgiving, but I’m hoping that it won’t be my last. In honor of my friends and I Friendsgiving coming up tomorrow, I decided to share a few key things you need for your Friendsgiving!
I mean, this one is pretty obvious don’t you think? Food is, of course, one of the most important things you need. I do, however, suggest you try switching it up a bit. Because we’re already going to be having Thanksgiving food on Thanksgiving day so we’re going with nontraditional food. Just simple foods like pizza, veggie and cheese platters, wings, etc. Of course, if you choose to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner then that’s fine! You can do whatever type of food you choose.
To really add to your Friendsgiving, I think a little decor is needed. It doesn’t have to be fancy at all. It could be as simple as having Thanksgiving themed plates. Just something to really bring the atmosphere together.
Soda’s, juices, etc. are nice, but I think adding some wines or mixed drinks will be a great addition to the atmosphere. It doesn’t have to be any type of hard liquor (unless you’re turning this Friendsgiving into a party).
Lastly, you need some really good friends to enjoy it with! What’s Friendsgiving without friends?? Grab all your close friends, sit down together at the table, and enjoy each other’s company.
How do you feel about Friendsgiving? Have you ever had one or would you ever have one?

I love the idea. I have attended them before. They were awesome before I had kiddos. Now the holidays are crazy enough and I find I can’t even enjoy them like I used to.
I hope one day you’ll be able to enjoy them again! Thanks for reading ♥
