Do you host a friendsgiving dinner? You know, the twist on Thanksgiving dinner that includes friends only. I personally love the idea and am planning one myself after my real Thanksgiving.
I was brainstorming friendsgiving party ideas when it occurred to me that pie is my favorite part of Thanksgiving, so why not throw a friendsgiving pie party?
Here are the details.

How many pies you’ll need will depend on the size of your guest list. You can bake the pies yourself or save some time and buy them. You could also ask everyone to bring their own pie to share.
You can even add a fun twist to the party by serving mini pies like this recipe from Lil’ Luna.
Choose what type of drinks you’ll serve. You can brew strong coffee with delicious fall-themed creamer or come up with a signature fall cocktail.
I personally love this Apple Cider Sangria by Recipe Girl.
Fall-themed decor is my favorite part of throwing any dinner party and my Friendsgiving gathering will be no different!
Consider placing all the pies and drinks on a buffet or table to create a pie bar display. You can add fun pie toppings like walnuts, whipped cream, shredded chocolate and more.
Create a beautiful fall tablescape like the one below from Brighton the Day.
And don’t forget the name tags.
Grab some eco-friendly to-go containers or ask your friends to bring their own. At the end of the evening, give out the remaining pie to everyone so your friends can enjoy another slice or two at home.
The Party Favors.
I love creating little goodie bags for my guests! You can easily create an inexpensive and quick friendsgiving party favor by packaging up just about anything with a cute tag.
You can find these tags on Etsy. Package up candy corn or a fall-themed trail mix.
