It’s hard to believe we’re less than a week away from November, but it has us all kinds of excited for our favorite month to play hostess. While we love our traditional Thanksgivings spent around Mimi or Nana’s dinner tables, we are also big proponents of the latest trend – Friendsgiving. Our friends have always played an important role in our lives, so we find it to be the perfect time to gather and express gratitude for their love and support. The earliest recorded mention of Friendsgiving dates back to 2007 and has continually grown more popular over the years. Because of our love for this fun occasion, this year we collaborated with our friend Lacey Irving to bring to you one of our most favorite Friendsgiving designs to life!
Because we won’t be sharing our full design until it’s officially November, here is a sneak peek of what’s to come to help you get inspired for hosting your own Friendsgiving this year.
1. Fall-Inspired Tablescape and Decor
