Friendsgiving

I ❤️ Thanksgiving. It combines two of my favorite things: eating and drinking. Since I am not originally from the west coast and neither are a lot of my friends here, we tend not to see each other over the holidays. In order to remedy this, my lovely friend R chose to host Friendsgiving. If you don’t what this is, it is like Thanksgiving, but usually held amongst friends. It is a great way to get a group of people together for a little fun and laughter.

I made a centerpiece for the table.

I defiantly waited till the last minute to make the centerpiece and that was a mistake. I thought Michael’s would have a few fall florals left…WRONG! It was like a Christmas bomb went off in there. As I walked through the aisles I got more and more nervous about not finding anything. Why is it now the trend to have Christmas stuff out in October?!? In any event, I took a deep breath and knew it was a “make it work” moment. I ended up finding glittery leaves and fruit as well as some cranberries. A little creativity and some determination later and my centerpiece was looking good.

Here is the centerpiece in action. My friend made these awesome candles with corn seeds on the bottom. Combined with her beautiful dishes the table was ready for the party!

The evening went so well. R’s turkey was amazing as well as all of the other side dishes. I made an apple pie and yams with marshmallows. I have to say I am beginning to like cooking a lot more, especially when I can cook for others.

Well having Friendsgiving only got me excited about real Thanksgiving. Only 1.5 weeks left till Turkey Day!
