Step 1: Decide who will host. 

Hosting Friendsgiving is a big task, but your friends will be by your side to help. If you’re thinking about hosting, make sure you have enough space for all of your friends – this includes parking! It’s also a good idea to either include your roommates, or make sure they’re at least okay with having guests.

 

Step 2: Pick a date. 

When the holiday weekend arrives, many people are busy traveling or seeing family. Friendsgiving festivities typically take place on a day leading up to the holiday weekend so that there are less scheduling conflicts. If you’re hosting a big group, try using Doodle to find a common time when everybody is free.

Step 3: Decide who makes what.

Typically the host will take care of the turkey, but of course it’s totally up to you and your friends! The turkey is the biggest task, so everyone else should make sure that all the side dishes and desserts are taken care of.

Dessert

Pumpkin. Need we say more? If you want to spice things up instead of doing a traditional pumpkin pie, check out some of these alternative pumpkin recipes.

 

Step 4: Enjoy!

Ready to feast? After all that work, you deserve it! Just remember that after all the fun is done, the host shouldn’t be the only one cleaning up. Another important reminder: don’t forget to bring home leftovers!
