We’ve found a holiday that just might be even more exciting than Christmas: Friendsgiving! While Thanksgiving is usually a more formal affair with family, Friendsgiving is the perfect opportunity to make traditions with more creative dishes and décor your friends will love.
Since your friends don’t require all of the traditional dishes typically served at Thanksgiving, there’s no need to stick to a strict menu. Friendsgiving means you can truly make this holiday your own, creating fun, memorable traditions with your eclectic group of friends. Want to have turkey served with a frozen pizza and beer? Friendsgiving is the perfect event to make it happen. Looking to give your meal a southern flair with a deep fried turkey and a cheesy grits pie? Totally fair game!
The biggest challenge when hosting Friendsgiving is figuring out who’s responsible for bringing what, especially knowing you have the freedom to get a little more creative. If you’re stuck on what to bring to your Friendsgiving dinner, we’ve made the process a little easier. We’ve teamed up with a few of our favorite influencers to show you a few recipes that will create the perfect Friendsgiving spread!
