How to Host the Best Friendsgiving Ever

Friendsgiving is one of our most favorite events of the year! Whether it’s a reunion with buddies from school or you are gathering with your favorite neighbors, combining good food and great friends always leaves us feeling full in our hearts as well as our tummies.

Are you hosting Friendsgiving this year and need some quick tips? We’ve got you! Check out our go-to hacks for a flawless Friendsgiving.

Friendsgiving Essential: Hall Tree

Make everyone’s grand entrances seamless with a spacious hall tree, like this one pictured below.

This coat rack is a  Friendsgiving must have

Cute idea: you can pretend the hall tree is a fancy coat-check station and give out “tickets” with fun stationary or calligraphy that your guests can take home as a sweet memento. Organizing coats and scarves is easy with four double-pronged hooks, while open lower compartments store everyone’s boots and shoes. Bonus: we included three woven baskets that fit effortlessly in any of the six open lower storage compartments.

A Buffet Table with Big Personality

Friendsgiving is fantastic because it’s a little less traditional than most Thanksgiving’s; most Friendsgiving’s are all about the art of the potluck. Make displaying dishes super easy with a glorious buffet or sideboard, like this one shown below.

Friendsgiving is better with a large buffet.

Look how pretty! The Fontana Blue finish juxtaposes with the mirrored cabinet doors for a warm, festive look. Plus, the reflective doors add brightness and make your room look bigger. We love how the double doors open to reveal tons of storage, so you can keep extra serving platters, wine glasses, and anything else you need.

Something for Wine O’Clock

Loving this cute soft taupe colored dining hutch.

Friendsgiving is a casual holiday celebration, but you can still have a little moment to be a bit more sophisticated and pull a bottle out from a bar hutch. We love this latest addition, pictured above, because it’s perfect mix of fashion and function. It has all the room needed for wine bottles, a spot for stemware, and plenty of storage for stowing cocktail recipes.

Something to Put the Warmth in Friendsgiving

What is better than having all your friends gathered in your living room and sitting by a cozy fire? We can’t think of anything better, either. Skip the kindling and hassle of a real fire and get the party started with a push of a button with a high-quality electric fireplace.

Pros of having an electric fireplace:

  • The eco-friendly fireplace does not emit any emissions or other hazardous byproducts.
  • Feel toasty ASAP with supplemental zone heating for up to 400 square feet.
  • The flame effect can be operated with or without heat, providing the ambiance of a gentle rolling fire all year long.

The cons of having an electric fireplace: no one will want to leave your home and it might get awkward when you need to go to bed.
