Can we just talk about how fast 2018 has flow by?! Today is Thanksgiving! I have the day off from work and I am excited to be hosting my dad and mom over our house! —- If you are following my instagram stories - which I assume that’s how you found my website and blog you probably noticed I hosted a Friends giving the other day! It was our first actual get together that we have hosted in the new house besides my birthday (which was a mess because we were still living out of boxes from moving in). I wanted everything to be perfect! Of course with the help of one of my long time friends I was able to get the ideas from her and Pinterest and actually put it all together!
It was probably for me the most important part, because also I have never had a nice table setting like this. I wanted it to be perfect. I was able to find a lot of the things at Party City, like the table covers and the plates. I know they were plastic but thats OK! I was still super happy with it. We bought some cute garland at Target for the center piece and I had purchased extra pine cones as well! I had my husband buy some pumpkins and some popcorn kernels as well for a cute candle centerpiece.
All the girls that came I have mostly known since like Birth, Kindergarten and up to 6th grade as the latest which still comes out to over 10 years of knowing each other. Which I love the most about my group of friends. We have stuck together through thick and thin and are still by each others sides.
ANYWAY - before I get too mushy there, The FOOD! Last year we did it potluck style, and we decided that this year that would be the best bet! That way its not just 1-2 people cooking everything for everyone. My hubby was the one that actually did all of our cooking! I know - I am pretty lucky… He made the turkey, the stuffing, the gravy, a brussel sprout side dish, he put together a cheese board and purchased a ton of wine and even put it out in a nice way for our friends. We had our friends make a Mac and Cheese and the cheese sauce was from scratch, we had a green bean casserole, mashed potatoes of course, and salad and Dinner rolls. It was almost too perfect.
