Thank you Decoy for sponsoring this post. Complete your own tablescapes with Decoy this holiday season.
Holidays are quickly approaching and what better time to host a Friendsgiving. Think of it as Thanksgiving with friends, but more informal than your traditional Thanksgiving dinner. I’m going to show you how to create an inviting and easy Friendsgiving Tablescape for your closest friends.
A Friendsgiving Tablescape can be as formal or as informal as you want. It’s entirely up to you. That’s the best part. No rules to follow.
I created a cozy Fall festive look by using a plaid blanket or blanket scarf instead of your traditional table runner. It’s simple yet so effective.
I wanted to focus on the warm vibrate colors of Fall. I filled two lanterns with tiny orange and white pumpkins along with some pinecones to bring out the warm colors of Fall. I continued this look by placing the pumpkins and pinecones on top of the plaid blanket.
For my place setting, I used white dinner plates and brown rattan plate chargers. I love using plate chargers because it just adds a little more detail to your place setting. I used cloth linen napkins topped with a burlap leaf. This really added to the Fall look I was going for.
Toast the Holidays with Decoy Wines. They have a large selection that is sure to elevate your occasion. It is important to serve both a white wine as well as a red wine. This gives your guest the ability to choose which wine they prefer. I went a bottle with Decoy Sauvignon Blanc and Decoy Sonoma Country Red. Both are delicious.
Decoy Sauvignon Blanc: This bright and aromatic wine offers enticing layers of lemon and lime zest, as well as lovely notes of honeydew and nectarine.
Decoy Sonoma County Red Wine: This wine pairs the elegance of Merlot with the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Your red wine lovers will love this.
I love using stem wine glasses at my dinner parties because of the elegance it gives to the table. As your guest arrive serve them a glass of wine while your dinner is finishing up. This will allow your lets guests mingle before the big meal.
Hosting a Friendsgiving shouldn’t be complicated or stressful. My hope is these tips and ideas help you create a simple yet inviting Friendsgiving Tablescape. Friends are the family we choose.
If you are hosting a Friendsgiving or any type of gathering this holiday season, don’t forget to include Decoy Wine.
