3. The Host Makes The Turkey

When inviting your crew over for Friendsgiving, treat them to your finest delicious turkey and stuffing. When your guests arrive and they smell that bird cooking in the oven, their senses will take them back to their childhood and they will be so thankful for your cooking skills! Article By: Forkly

4. Reliable Friends Bring Side Dishes

We all have that friend that we really hope the best for, and try to help them contribute but they always underdeliver. Don’t ask those friends to contribute to Friendsgiving. Instead, have your reliable friends bring the side dishes so no one misses out on cranberry sauce or mashed potatoes! Photos and Recipe By: Forkly

5. Go The Extra Mile

Create a side dish of your own that is a little out of the ordinary for Thanksgiving but is completely fantastic. Check out this incredible Thanksgiving Poutine! Photos and Recipe By: Rock Recipes

6. Dessert: Pie Bar

Why just serve up pies when you can create a fun pie bar with all sorts of options?! All you need is a decorative tablecloth, cake plates, a banner and some pies! Photos and Recipe By: B Lovely Events

7. Excellent Friendsgiving Soundtrack

Whether you turn on the Spotify Friendsgiving playlist, or delegate a friend to make a sweet soundtrack, you will definitely need some music playing in the background to bring some festive cheer to your gathering.
