A Festive Friendsgiving | DIY’s, Table Decor, Recipes & More!

Happy Friendsgiving Everyone!

This is a blog I’ve been wanting to make since I started blogging. A blog with a little bit of pumpkin spice and all things nice! Yes, I am talking about recipes, DIY’s for your Thanksgiving Table and more for your Thankful Festivities!

I wanted to share with you my ideas for this Thanksgiving that you can create super fast! This is the first year I decided I’ll have Friendsgiving at my house! It was very last minute, but I loved it because it was so much fun!

Place Settings

I love having ceramic plates for Thanksgiving, but I loved these big festive plates from Walmart. I used brown cloth napkins and pumpkin napkin rings. Instead of putting the napkins on the sides, I decided to put them in the middle of the plates – a simple but cute added touch! All put together and easy! This took less than 5 minutes to do!

DIY Name Place

All you’ll need: 1 Bag of Pinecones, Cardstock or Cardboard, brown or gold markers

This was super easy to make! Once you are done with all you lay the pinecones flat, cut your cardboard into small rectangles.

Once you finish cutting your cardboard, take your marker and write everyone name on them. Use the top of the pinecone as your placeholder for the cardboard. This is super simple and easy! It took no time at all to make this! It was a small detail, but a festive one!


This was my favorite centerpiece I’ve ever created. Of course I still have my pumpkins that I got at the pumpkin patch! I used these as the perfect centerpiece. All you’ll need are some mini pumpkins, berries garland, loose leaves, and 2 leaf garlands from the dollar store. Put some leaves underneath the main pumpkin to look like it’s growing from the center, and you have the perfect centerpiece!

My Favorite Dish For Thanksgiving – Green Bean Casserole

This is a classic dish! Grab some green beans, cream of mushroom soup, French’s onions, and milk! Mix it all together and you have the most amazing dish below! It is a classic dish that I crave everyday around this time of year! I cannot wait to dig in on Thanksgiving!

Dessert Bar

No matter if it’s premade or homemade – make a dessert bar for your friends! This is a great option if you can’t decide what treats to make. ( I can never decide!)

Grab Your Friends!

& Dig In!

Capturing The Memories

I loved having my Instax camera with me to capture all the fun memories we made! It was so super special and I loved every minute of it. This will for sure become a tradition every year. I didn’t realize how much fun it would be!

The Life Of The Party

When I tell you Willie O was the life of the party – he was the LIFE OF THE PARTY! Daddy made the friendsgiving an emotional one, but that’s what it’s all about! Family, friends and LOVE!

Don’t Forget To Make A Toast!

Cheers with all your besties for a successful 2019 and an even better 2020. Being together in one room is something to be thankful for. Being surrounded by people that support you and have been there for you make Friendsgiving a million times more special.

Memories like these are why I love the holidays! I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving!

Until the next blog,

Cheyenne Lenore
