Let's be honest, we all know the best party of Thanksgiving is the dessert, so why not host your nearest and dearest over after the main meal for a Friendsgiving dessert party? This no fuss party is sure to delight your friends' eyes and their bellies! And the best part is, by using a few items I already had on hand, I didn't break the bank to throw it together!
I found the dessert plates and napkins at my local Kroger and fell in love with the colors and abstract pattern. The only thing I hate more than baking is doing dishes, so finding paper products that are both functional and pretty was a win-win. Keeping the tablecloth white and bright really helped the colors to pop right off the table.
For the centerpiece, I simply stained a scrap piece of wood to match my dessert table, then piled on a few mini pumpkins which were painted to mimic the plates and napkins. The middles were hollowed out to allow for the addition of pretty blush colored candlesticks and simple flowers.
I'm a sucker for a well-dressed chair, so I added a bit of yarn to the backs of my gold chairs. The colors perfectly matched my rug and seamlessly tied in with the yarn in the backdrop (pun intended!).
A branch from my yard was hung over the dessert table from two light sconces with a bit of blush colored yarn. On-trend embroidery hoops strung with yarn and adorned with eucalyptus added the right amount of color and charm.
Simple store-bought pumpkin and cherry pies, along with my husband's favorite, carrot cake cupcakes, are ideal treats to serve your guests for the holiday. No one will guess you didn't slave for hours baking, and I'm sure the baker wouldn't mind extending the credit just this once!
I couldn't be more thrilled with the way this Friendsgiving dessert party turned out. I even had a few friends ask for the carrot cake recipe! An artist never reveals her secrets, right?! Whether you're celebrating the holiday with friends or family, I hope you have a safe and blessed day full of love and laughter!
