Perhaps you can’t make it home for Thanksgiving, or maybe you just want to show gratitude for friends who have become family to you – either way, a Friendsgiving gathering is a beautiful way to observe this time of year! A time to cherish your friends; the people who make your world brighter –  a time to reflect, give thanks, eat delicious food, share some laughs and make lasting memories. Get ready to celebrate in style as the talented ladies of Beijos Events have put together the loveliest Friendsgiving we ever did see.

‘Thanksgiving is one of our absolute favorite holidays”, says Jacquelyn Kazas, co-owner of Beijos Events. “We get to be with the ones we love, eat delicious food, drink yummy wine and have a day with our family. Not only is the company lovely but the colors of Fall and that crisp feel in the air just makes our hearts swell up! You can really create such a beautiful tablescape around this holiday with all of the seasonal fruits and flowers, it’s honestly the best!”

“Thanksgiving isn’t just a time for family though, it’s also a time to be thankful for friends, and thus, the Friendsgiving was born! We love the idea of spending time with our friends, lets be honest, whether you’ve started a career, gotten married or even have had kids, your life just seems to be getting busier and busier, so friend time can sometimes come last.  It’s important to take care of our friendships, we value them and need them, and well they deserve some TLC too!”

“This Friendsgiving setting we created was inspired by the lovely burgundy tones of Fall with the fruits of the season like pomegranates, mixed with cobalt blue tones that we love from our friends at The Little Market.”
