i cant believe it’s already mid-december already! thought i’d finally share a few photos from our friendsgiving this year! (i know, so delayed). this is our 4th friendsgiving, which we co-host with a couple of friends. we get pretty excited for this and spend weeks (lots of them) planning it.
we ended up going with gold glitter yellow/white pumpkins for our name cards! (thank you pinterest! we combined these two ideas: here and here) we used these pumpkins to determine the rest of the decor: flowers, table covers, etc. beige, browns, golds was the base with bold flower combos.
the pumpkins – we were obsessed with these little babies.
- pumpkins – vons – $1 each
- modge podge – $7 at michaels
- gold glitter – $10 for a large bottle at michaels (martha stewart). i didn’t know how much i needed so i went with the large bottle.
- bow raffia – $4 for a large bag at michaels
- small tags – 20 pack $2.5 at michaels
- gold pen – set of 2 for $2.50 at michaels
- painter’s tape – $5 at target
the flower boxes – we found rectangle boxes in downtown on the cheap and ended up using them for our centerpieces. we stained them ourselves and then painted a gold strip for a pop.
- box – $13 each in downtown flower market
- wood stain tube – $13 at michaels. i will note that this was extremely easy to use.
- gold paint – $5 at michaels.
- beige table cloth – $9 on amazon (this is a crazy deal)
- burlap runners – $4 each in downtown flower market
- bag of pine cones – $5 in downtown
anyway, friendsgiving has come a long way from the first one we had 4 years ago (costco chicken, stove top stuffing, and extremely garlicy mashed potatoes (inedible)). now it’s a way for jess and i to be creative once a year (sometimes we joke because it feels like we plan a wedding once a year) and work on our cooking skills. at this point, we are pretty good at the stuffing, brussel sprouts, cream corn, and pumpkin pie!
gorgeous photography as always! Must share your stuffing, brussel sprouts, cream corn, and pumpkin pie recipes for your readers and submit them along your beautiful tablescape inspirations to recipe & party blogs/websites… as well as to The Fabliss pinterest account that you must create (I’ll be the first follower!)
