The Perfect Setting for a Modern Thanksgiving...or Friendsgiving

Erin Lepperd

Whether celebrating Thanksgiving with friends, family or both, this holiday inspiration will give your festivities a fresh, modern kick. The ladies of Beijos Events know how to set the perfect tablescape and it shines through with this outdoor affair loaded with steal-worthy details like a moody, autumnal color palette, pops of copper and bohemian textiles. Even if you're not lucky enough to do thanksgiving alfresco, you can pull this inspiration indoors for an equally lovely gathering. See the full shindig captured by Riley Starr right here. From Beijos Events...One of the best things about living in California is the fact that we get to be outside all year round. Including the special days like Thanksgiving and Christmas! Often times you can find us barbecuing on these holidays! Each year my friends and I like to get together and have a Friendsgiving, it's such a great kick off to the holiday season. This year we took advantage of the great weather and my friend's newly renovated backyard! It was the perfect setting to gather us all and enjoy some delicious food and drinks.One of the things we don't like about these get togethers is the clean up. I came across L'Entramise, a beautiful disposable line that was perfect for our table setting. Their pieces have a sleek and pretty look and are so well crafted. The best part was at the end of the night we could just toss everything away and not worry about the dishes!Our friends at Colette's Catering designed a menu with a modern take on Thanksgiving dinner. We had a delicious salad, roasted veggies and squab instead of turkey. They also put together a killer cheese plate, which every party needs in my opinion! And a delicious dessert that had us all happy at the end of the. night. One Hope wine helped us pair each course with the perfect wine as well!For the details we turned to Olive & Blooms for florals and Miss Multee for the invite, menus and place cards. We used the colors of the tabletop and added in some deep berries and copper to finish it off. The beautiful florals lined the table and really brought a fall feel to the event, with a fresh and modern take. And everybody kept talking about the beautiful hand written menus, they were an ombre gold to copper that perfectly shined all night.Each year at this time I get a bit sentimental, it means another year is coming to an end. But ending it with great friends is always a good idea, and that's why Friendsgiving is so special.
