Friendsgiving Dinner Party
Friendsgiving Party Details:
This is what Michelle shared about the party- “Hosting a dinner party for my very best friends is my ideal Saturday night. Nothing brings people together like good food, a steady supply of wine, and endless laughter. There is something about being in someone’s home that creates a warm and inviting atmosphere that is often not found when dining out. Inevitably, no one ever wants to leave! Over the last few years this term “Friendsgiving” has popped up. It’s the perfect excuse to celebrate Thanksgiving with your dear friends.
Personalized Place Cards
For this year’s Friendsgiving dinner, I wanted to add a special element, since we have all become parents over the last few years. I was searching Tiny Prints website for the most perfect menus when I came across these adorable photo Christmas Ornaments. How amazing would it be if I had them made with each of my friends children on them, and used them in lieu of place cards. I loved how unique and personal this idea was. The reaction was amazing!! Everyone absolutely loved seeing all of those adorable faces around the table, and it made for the best gift ever. Something they will treasure year after year as they decorate their Christmas tree as a family.
Natural Fall Decor
When it came to decor, I was inspired to create my own Shibori napkins which were such a gorgeous backdrop on each place setting. Fall flowers are simply the best; We used a mixture of dahlias, cabbages, hypericum berries and carnations to create the 5 centerpieces. Spray painted pumpkins and leaves were the perfect compliment to the shiny gold flatware. And the gorgeous purple water cups were my favorite (and most useful!) souvenir from my honeymoon in Italy.”
