Our Friendsgiving Dinner Party for Thanksgiving

This past weekend, I got to experience my first Friendsgiving Dinner Party.  I love celebrating Thanksgiving, and celebrating with friends is just as important as celebrating with family!  I created this new Rustic Friendsgiving Invitation and Printable Collection for a very special night with friends.

The evening with friends was perfect!  Everyone brought a side dish, and the hostess, Shannon, made delicious ham, brie and beverages.

Of course we needed yummy beverages and the party had great timing because last week we received a super exciting new coffee and espresso machine from Nespresso.  I just knew bringing the Nespresso VertuoLine and Aeroccino Milk Frother would make the party even more cozy and yummy!


Shannon and I set up a little entry table with a printable “Thankful” banner (now in the shop!) which was hung with lace ribbon.  (Recognize the ribbon from my parents “Love Grows” Anniversary party?)

My sweet friend, Anna, is the one who inspired this rustic thanksgiving friendsgiving theme. She asked me for some Friendsgiving designs and I happily created. I love this poster below….

“It is not happy people that are thankful, it is thankful people that are happy.”

My new Nespresso VertuoLine and Aeroccino Milk Frother looks pretty gorgeous on the bar area and I couldn’t wait to put it to use at the party.

nespressoThe Aeroccino Milk Frother was just as cool.  I already have the idea of using it for hot cocoa for the boys! All I had to do was pour in the milk to the max line and press a button and it froths up the most yummy milk ever!




The sweet hostess, Shannon, and I enjoyed everything so much with our great group of friends.

The warm and rustic tones of the party decor made the room so cozy. 

The night was wonderful with fabulous food, friends and drinks!
