Before the big feast, a.k.a. Thanksgiving festivities, comes the fun and casual Friendsgiving get together. Think a delicious potluck style dinner with your nearest and dearest friends. But hosting doesn't have to mean frantically pulling together a meal, fretting over the decor and being left with a messy explosion in the kitchen. With the help of the Chinet® brand, we're showing you how to pull off a easy, beautiful Friendsgiving meal seamlessly. Consider it a 101 for Hosting with ease.
Inspired by a Simple Tablescape
At the core of our Friendsgiving tablescape, is the idea of simple and pretty. We started with place settings from Chinet's® Classic White™ collection and built our decor around the concept of easy set up and clean up, yet with a cohesive, beautiful presentation of all the potluck dishes. Friendsgiving is all about the delicious meal, so instead of the hassle of a centerpiece, we let the food take center stage! A simple runner, basic pillar candles, and wooden chargers set the tone, while the Chinet® Classic White™ Dinner Plates and Chinet® Cut Crystal™ cutlery did all the dirty work and made cleanup a snap.
The Little Extras
Place cards were made extra special by ripping up a piece of thick watercolor paper and dipping it in a pot of coffee! Simply lay on a piece of cardboard to dry, then fold in half and write each guest's name. Other simple touches to give the meal that welcoming touch included a bit of twine and a sprig of rosemary wrapped around each set of cutlery and Chinet® Classic White™ dinner napkins.
If you are anything like us and like to load up on double servings of your favorites (ahem mashed potatoes and gravy, we're looking at you) then Chinet® Classic White™ dinner plates are your go-to. They have the strength and durability to hold up to heaping Friendsgiving helpings and the ease of being disposable. Simply toss and done. No dirty dishes piling up in the kitchen or serving platters needing to be soaked and scrubbed. It's a host's dream.
With the simple beauty and durability of the Chinet® Classic White™ collection, hosting Friendsgiving will be a breeze. So ditch the stress and mess of throwing a party and infuse your holiday with premium disposable tableware piled high with delicious home-cooked favorites. That double serving of pie? Not a problem when the Chinet® brand is on the job.
