Weekly Roundup #14: Ideas for a Chic and Simple Friendsgiving Party

Trust the millennials to come up with a cool, new take on tradition. Now, Thanksgiving is also being celebrated as “Friendsgiving“! With family members living so far apart, it’s often not possible to make the trip back home for just a day. If this sounds like your dilemma, why not mark the holiday with close friends, dorm mates or work colleagues, and celebrate your gratitude with them?

No time (or talent) to serve a grand feast with fancy decorations? That’s okay. Grab some handy ideas from these 5 posts we found this week. And throw a simple, yet chic affair!

Host a Friendsgiving Bash with Ease!

Ideas for a Chic and Simple Friendsgiving Party

1 – Sending out invitations will give even a casual, at-home gathering that special air of excitement. Love the playful font and graphics in this one by Designs by Jolene, finished with a kraft paper band and twine.

2 – Sneak in the “spirits” in the sweets! That’s the surprise in these Caramel Apple Moonshine Jelly Shots, from Tablespoon (this post has this recipe and lots more for Friendsgiving).

3 – A perfect dessert choice for your cozy get-together would be a bundt cake. Easy to home bake, especially with a recipe like this from Melissa Creates: Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Drizzle!

4 – If you’re no kitchen whiz, why not pick a delicious looking Thanksgiving turkey recipe and make it a “Friendsgiving” cook fest along with the gang? This Citrus Roasted Turkey from Out of the Weeds sounds so good!

5 – Make the occasion extra meaningful with a donation to causes like No Kid Hungry. Or start a Friendsgiving fund or campaign that you can continue each November.

While you may be missing your own family this Thanksgiving, one post referred to dear friends as “chosen family.” So true! Have a warm and wonderful Friendsgiving!
Join us back here on Saturday for our next Weekly Roundup. We can’t wait to see what we’ll feature!
