Good Food and Great Friends

This year my favorite ladies and I celebrated our second annual Friendsgiving and if I do say so myself, it was a huge success! I have said it before and I’ll say it again, but I’m a firm believer that nothing brings people together like good food! Thanksgiving is easily my favorite holiday and so I naturally planned a party to celebrate!

I was too proud of the cute table decorations! This year, we migrated out of the dining room and set up two tables in the kitchen and family room to accommodate everyone.

Decorations included:

  • Flowers! My favorite! We had a mix of carnations, sunflowers, daises, and daylillies.
  • Mini gourds and pumpkins
  • Lots of candles!

Needless to say, we filled up on carbs and went home with full stomachs, but even fuller hearts! After a night spent with my favorite girls, I was reminded of how blessed I am. I am so thankful for fun nights of laughter and the gift of friendship!

Always, Autumn
