    A Beautiful Mess

    Are you hosting a Thanksgiving celebration with only your friends, otherwise known as Friendsgiving, this year? If so you will need to start thinking about how you want to decorate your home for your upcoming celebration with your closest friends. Often celebrated a few days before or after Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving is also focused on eating good food, so you should focus most of your decor around the dining room table.

    To start decorating, create a large party backdrop behind your dining room...MORE table using streamers and gold foil balloons. A large party backdrop is not only a great way to dramatically change the look of a room, but it makes for a beautiful backdrop for all the photos you take with your friends.

    Instead of leaving the dishes of food on the dining room table, move them to the kitchen counter or a nearby table so that you have more space on your table to decorate and it will allow your guests to easily serve themselves by having a food buffet counter. Now that the center of your dining room table will be free of all the bowls of food it will give you extra space to decorate your table, enhancing your Friendsgiving celebration.
