Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and more than just a day to eat really, really….really good food, its a day to truly give thanks for the family and friends who cross our paths.
Life is all about stories – living them, gathering with loved ones to share them and celebrating this crazy thing we call life.
Even if you are celebrating Thanksgiving with the fam, that doesn’t mean you can’t gather before or after T-day with your girl-squad and enjoy a night of delicious dishes, crafted cocktails and of course, girl talk.
Today we are sharing some fun inspo to help get you started, so read on for The Roc Shop’s (pretty) fail proof guide to Friendsgiving.
SET THE MOOD
Sebastian from the Little Mermaid had it right all along! Set the mood with a kick-ass playlist – be it vinyls or Spotify (Check out this fun playlist) pick some crowd pleasers everyone will like to get the shin-dig going.
Grab Some Fab DecorYour decor doesn’t have to break the bank bae! A little bit goes a long way – a beautiful bouquet or two, some plant leaves as charger accents, plus pops of color in a table runner and your in business!
Make it a family affair! Invite your friends to each bring their fave dish and share stories about where the recipes came from! In case you need some inspo, we shared some amazing non-traditional recipes from Tiffany of Lushful Living, check ’em out!
Ornaments are a such a memorable, yet inexpensive way to give each friend a cherished token from the gathering to remember it by!
Create a photo Booth
Creating a custom photobooth isn’t as hard as you think! We love using artwork from Samantha Louise Designs – but you can even shoot with a polaroid camera if nothing else, which also make great momentos. Then, make a custom #hashtag to share pics from your Friendsgiving on social media, that way you can always find them when you want to remember the good times! Check out our custom photobooth signage too, #justsayin we just launched them this fall b*tches!
Create a Signature Cocktail
Nothing like a refreshing bevvy to kick of a friendly-affair – plus check out the rad new Otomi Stir Sticks we have in the shop! In case you want to keep up on the latest with our line, you can subscribe to our newsletter, we will be sharing some fun cocktails with you every week! 🙂
