It’s that time of year again…so why not change up your holiday plans and find new ways to give thanks this fall? A Friendsgiving party is the perfect way to connect with your close friends before the mayhem of the holiday season ensues. Read on for our top three tips for throwing a successful (and fun!) Friendsgiving party.
Tip #1: Perfect Your Timing
This time of year, everyone is busy. Make sure to plan your Friendsgiving party the week before actual Thanksgiving. An after-hours gathering on a weeknight prior to Thanksgiving helps to avoid schedule conflicts and gives people an excuse to start celebrating early.
Tip #2 : Collaborate on the Food
In the spirit of sharing, ask your guests to bring a small dish to contribute to the festivities. Encourage friends to bring unconventional takes on traditional dishes and get specific on whether you want them to go savory or sweet.
Tip #3: Choose the Right Wines
The real key to hosting a successful Friendsgiving is to make sure your guests enjoy what they’re drinking. Albariño from Rias Baixas is a no-brainer because it has universal appeal and complements a range of dishes that might show up on your Friendsgiving table.
