Plan a Potluck Feast

Friendsgiving often involves a potluck-style feast, where everyone brings a dish to share. Here's how to make it a success:

  • Coordinate the Menu: Create a shared spreadsheet for your friends to sign up for dishes. This will ensure a well-rounded and diverse selection of dishes.

  • Label the Dishes: Use your party supplies to create labels for each dish. This adds a professional touch and helps guests with dietary restrictions.

Unique Table Decor

Set the stage for a memorable meal with creative table decor ideas using party supplies:

  • Centerpieces: Consider DIY centerpieces using seasonal items, candles, or flower arrangements. Add name cards for assigned seating.

  • Table Runners and Placemats: Choose unique table runners and placemats that match your Friendsgiving theme.

  • Party Favors: Having unique party favors like kiss stickers, mini candy bar wrappers and our 2 inch round stickers can be used as decor and party favors to share with your friends too.

Create a Welcoming Atmosphere

  • Friendsgiving Playlist: Craft a playlist featuring everyone's favorite songs and play it throughout the evening.

  • Photo Booth Fun: Set up a photo booth with props and a backdrop made from your party supplies. Encourage guests to take fun snapshots to remember the day.


Host a Game Night

After the meal, keep the fun going with some Friendsgiving-themed games. Use your party supplies to create game boards, cards, or score sheets. Consider games like charades, Pictionary, or Thanksgiving trivia.

Goodie Bags for the Road

As a lovely parting gesture, provide your friends with goodie bags filled with small gifts, sweets, and a thank-you note

Friendsgiving is an opportunity to cherish the bonds that have been forged through friendship. By planning and hosting a memorable Friendsgiving gathering, you can create lasting memories with your chosen family. 

So, embrace the spirit of Friendsgiving, and celebrate the love and gratitude you share with your dearest friends. Here's to many more wonderful Friendsgivings to come!
