This past weekend, my three high school best friends and I got together with our significant others for a Friendsgiving. It was a blast, and certainly a tradition to keep up for years to come. I went all out, and had so much fun making all of the crafts and floral arrangements. We divided up the food so that one person wasn’t stuck making it all.
Thanksgiving Placesetting
Every place setting had a little boutineer I made from a painted stick, white and brown feathers, and a cut from a safflower plant. It was tied with a piece of red yarn. They came out so well, and were a big hit.
Food Labels
To label all of the food, I found pieces of bark at a park, painted them, and then wrote on them. They came super cute!
Floral Arrangement
I went to the Flower Mart on Saturday (more to come about that tomorrow!) and picked out several different types of flowers. I then played around with a little floral arrangements until I was satisfied with the results.
Painted Coaster
I think one of my favorite things that I made was the deer silhouette coasters. I painted old coasters dark blue, created the silhouette stencil of a deer and then spray painted it gold. To seal it, I painted mod podge on top and let it dry. They fit in so well with the rest of the table decor, and added a nice splash of blue,
Apple and Pumpkin PIe
Apple Pie
We had plenty of pie to go around, and I must say, they were delicious!
Friendsgiving was so much fun, and I will be eating left overs for days. It was a great way to celebrate friendship and the holiday season. And what’s even better, we still have the REAL Thanksgiving next week! Happy Tuesday!

5 Thoughts on “Friendsgiving

  1. love love love! i’m so gone with the painted bark!
    how did the coasters work? i always assumed that mod podge would make the coaster stick to the bottom of the cup/glass if it was at all moist?

    • The mod podge actually works pretty well with cold drinks. I tend to have more problems with hot drinks getting stuck. But overall, they work super well! (PS Happy Birthday to Maddie!)

  2. SO cute!!! The boutonnieres are my favorite!!

  3. I love Friendsgiving! Also those place settings are adorable!
