It’s that time of year again!

Does anyone else think that this year is flying by so fast? I cannot believe we are almost two weeks away from Thanksgiving. Jeremy asked me the other day what our plans for Thanksgiving were and I had no idea what to tell him because I haven’t even thought that far out! It’s crazy too because most of you know I am in the middle of wedding planning and out amazing wedding planner has had me book pretty much everything so far and here I am thinking I had so much more time! But in reality we are less than a year out and there is SO much to plan. Whoever says wedding planning was a full time job as a bride, I completely agree with you. Being The Every Hostess though I have to say I have been loving every minute of it.

This year for Friendsgiving I wanted to do something a little different with the table setting. I still love the idea of setting out craft paper as your table cloth and providing crayons for guests to draw during dinner like last years Friendsgiving! However, this year teaming up with La Crema Wines for this table setting, I wanted to do something a little different. This year, I am not going to style a Thanksgiving table, so this table is also the perfect inspiration for your Thanksgiving table as well. Using moody grey’s in the flower arrangement and table runner we gave the table a pop of “peach” in the copper chargers as well as in the flower arrangement (by Plum Sage Flowers). Ever since my best friends wedding the other weekend, who used copper as the focus color, I can’t get enough of it. I used a light grey napkin with a simple fabric tie to add a little bit of a feminine touch to the table. Small candles were the perfect final addition from Plum Sage Flowers to give the table mood lighting. It was important to not do too much on the table as I wanted it to be filled with the food! The most important part in a Friendsgiving.

When hosting a Friendsgiving there are a few things to keep in mind! This is a more casual event, it’s a way to gather together your “second” family, your friends. Seeing as many of your friends will likely be heading home for the holiday you don’t want to cook them the same things as they will be getting at home. So, I highly recommend cooking a ham or pork roast as the main for this dinner. The best way to get all of your friends involved in the dinner is doing it “pot luck” style and having everyone bring a side dish or dessert (and bottle of wine of course!). Head on over to La Crema Wines Blog for my favorite side dish + dessert recipes to make! All these dishes are super simple, healthy and can easily be warmed in the oven if someone brings it over.
