Plan Your Friendsgiving
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving is a feast to celebrate loved ones who aren’t necessarily your relatives. If you’ve been tasked with hosting this party, here’s how you can make it a stress-free experience for everyone.
Plan the evening
As the host, your role is to ensure the event goes smoothly. Will you have party games to enjoy? Any food allergies to be aware of? Can you all agree on a movie to watch? Download Heads Up! to have a fun party game in your back pocket and TinyPoll to get consensus.
Coordinate with friends
The host usually provides the turkey (or Tofurky), so after you send dynamic invitations with Hobnob, use Trello to coordinate the other dishes to ensure you don’t end up with six pies and no mashed potatoes (not the worst-case scenario, though).
Now that you know the plan, it’s time to put it into action! You’ll definitely want to decorate with festive place settings for everyone, maybe some warm lighting accents, and, of course, the food. Target has a wide selection of seasonal decorations, and Instacart can save you a trip by delivering your ingredients to your door. If you’re up for a challenge, Panna will teach you to cook chef-designed recipes that are sure to impress.
