VIDEO: A Fabulous Friendsgiving

As I’ve mentioned over and over again, Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday of the year. There’s no pomp and circumstance. No fuss. It’s all about getting together with our families, enjoying a little foot and watching a little football. I know, more than anyone else that often times our friends are an extension of our families. Lots of us create our own familial bonds with our friends and hosting a Friendsgiving dinner is the perfect way to gather around those you love and acknowledge their presence in your life.

Blogger  buddy and friend, Kelly Golightly and I hosted a small gathering in my backyard last week for a few friends. The elements to a perfectly decorated Friendsgiving/ Thanksgiving table are easy: tablecloth, fancy dishes, simple decor, good eats, good drinks and friends! And of course you’re invited too! Click here to watch the video.

Miss Kris + Kelly Golightly Friendsgiving 1Our lovely table. Thanks to Dish Wish for providing the fabulous dishes, glasses and flatware. I was dead set on having a black and white striped table cloth (I’m currently obsessed with all things B+W). I scored this fabric at my local hardware store for $18 and made it the star of our party.
