Good friends. Delicious food. Lots of laughs and memories—it just doesn’t get much better than a classic Friendsgiving! This year, make yours a Friendsgiving brunch for some festive, flavorful flair.
Just read on to see what we love about Friendsgiving brunch, as well as a few tips for hosting your very own!
It’s the stress-free supplement to Thanksgiving
We all love Thanksgiving dinner—but if you’re the one organizing it, you may find that it’s no small feat of a feast to plan! From the guest list to the centerpiece, the perfect preparation of the turkey to the addressing of everyone’s unique dietary needs and preferences, you may find yourself craving a break in the form of a delicious brunch with friends. That’s where Friendsgiving comes in! Whether you enjoy one on Wednesday morning, or as the Black Friday follow-up to your traditional dinner with family, you don’t need to plan too much. Brunch is known as one of the most casual, laidback meals, after all, so no one will mind if you roll right out of bed and head straight to eat—since everyone else is probably doing that, too!
In lieu of a turkey or special side dish that takes a while to prepare (albeit to delicious results), many of our favorite brunch dishes are easy to make and enjoy. You can even turn your Friendsgiving into a potluck or swing by Peach Valley Café for a truly effortless experience.
The bottom line? Friendsgiving brunch doesn’t replace Thanksgiving—it simply adds another layer of flavor to your holiday experience, a festive, no-fuss layer that’s sure to please!
Come as you are
Do you ever dream about sporting sweatpants at Thanksgiving dinner? We’ve all been there! But even if your traditional dinner is a little too formal for such a look, your Friendsgiving brunch is the perfect place to dress in your comfy best.
Invite the whole crew
Our Thanksgiving guest lists are often limited to the amount of chairs that will fit around our dining room table, or cars in our driveway. At Friendsgiving, you can pick a fun place to meet up—like a local park, the beach or your favorite brunch restaurant—and invite as many people as you’d like! Plus, it’s the perfect way to bring together lots of different friends who may have their own holiday plans on Turkey Day itself.
