Thanksgiving is about following tradition; Friendsgiving is about making new ones.
I know I have a lot going on this holiday season. I am a bit crazed but I kind of love it! So when the idea of hosting a Friendsgiving Party came up, I jumped at the choice to host my first one. I mean who doesn’t want a dress rehearsal for the big Turkey Day Celebration?
My first task was setting my table for the event so I turned to my friends at Saveoncrafts for some help. I have been shopping at Saveoncrafts for a few years and they have an awesome selection of everything you need to entertain year round.
I decided to go with a slightly rustic them using burlap and cotton. So here are the items I picked out for my table.
I started decorating for Friendsgiving in my Flower Arranging room. A few weeks ago I converted half of my Butler’s Pantry to this area and I love it! I really enjoy arranging flowers, regardless of whether they are fresh or faux.
I have to tell you how excited I am about these vases! I love corrugated zinc vases and I have picked up a few of them in the past. But I have been searching for taller ones everywhere. Finally, I found them as these are 10 1/2 inches tall and they are just perfect!
I absolutely love the rustic feel these centerpieces provide on my table!
I started by laying down a burlap table runner down the center of my table. As I was starting to fold the square linen napkins I decided to use them as placemats instead. I love repurposing items! Then I added the burlap chargers and a few white fresh pumpkins to complete the look.
I have collected vintage china for a long time and it’s always fun to pull out my turkey plates!
For place cards, I used the small wood-framed chalkboards and just wrote in everyone’s names with a chalk pen.
Finally, I added the Friendsgiving menu to my two-sided large standing chalkboard! I love how great it looks next to the real cotton stem floral.
So I am ready to host Friendsgiving this weekend. All I need now is to cook the food.
Oh my goodness!
