 Friendsgiving is the perfect excuse to celebrate with your best friends - and what makes it even better is it's a party with all the best fall vibes - the best things wrapped into one.

So, whether this is your 5th year in a row celebrating Friendsgiving or this is your first rodeo, you will definitely be inspired by these Friendsgiving decorations.

Remember that Friendsgiving is all about celebrating those you love, so above all have fun!

This post shows you the best Friendsgiving decorations.

Friendsgiving Decorations Dinner Parties:

There are endless ways to customize your Friendsgiving dinner party, from chic and glam to boho and natural. Whatever you choose, there are a few key decorations every Friendsgiving dinner party should have.

If this isn't your first rodeo and you've hosted friendsgivings before, try doing something different each year, think of it as a little challenger! Whether that be switching up the decor or changing the food menu.

I love seeing the ways I can top last year's Friendsgiving, and my friends always look forward to seeing what I put together.

You could also invite a few of your friends to co-host with you; that way, you'll have a plethora of ideas at your disposal. I've co-hosted with my girlfriends before, and it has been so much fun!

1. Tablescape

If you are hosting a dinner style friendsgiving, then the tablescape is super important!  The lighting on this table gives you all the feels and really creates the Friendsgiving atmosphere we all want.

Add some greenery down the table for an easy, yet classic decor piece.

2. Friendsgiving Banner

Who doesn't love a cute banner? Having a sign of any sort is very festive and a great reminder about what the celebration is all about.

3. Serving Table

Chances are you do not have enough space on your table for all your friends and the food! If so, finding a cute way to decorate your serving station will take your party to the next level.

Try to have your serving table flow in order, starting from the left, begin with the starters (biscuits, dips, crackers), then the main dishes (mashed potatoes & gravy, turkey, stuffing, casserole), and finally, drinks!

I would recommend clearing your table of the starters and main dishes, after dinner, and then set out your desserts.

4. Charcuterie Board

Charcuteries are the thing right now, and I am so for it. They are gorgeous and perfect for any occasion.

When I host anything, I always make sure to put together a little charcuterie board, so this was an obvious essential to my Friendsgiving essentials list.

These snack boards have a little something of everything, which means everyone is almost guaranteed to like something on it.

For those of you over 21, you are missing out if you don't add some festive decor to your bar cart!

Styling a bar cart is super easy; you won't regret it.

Friendsgiving Decorations DIY:

DIY's are the way to go if you love crafting or are looking for ways to save money.

Adding these custom elements here and there will show your friends how much you care!

1. DIY Table Covering

Any chance I get to customize my decor, I will do it. I love adding the "I'm thankful for..." to each place setting; this will allow your friends to really think about all they're grateful for!

2. Pinecone Place Cards

Pinecones and fall go hand and hand. I love including natural elements into my decorations they really tie everything together!

3. "What I'm Thankful For..." Poster

Another way to have your friends come together and write a few things that they are grateful for is by hanging a roll of brown paper on a wall!

There are so many ways that you can incorporate activities like this into your night:

  • Print out coloring sheets, layout some crayons, and have everyone draw during dinner.
  • Have each guest write down one specific reason they are grateful for some in the group (can be a memory, a personality trait). After everyone has written about someone, collect all of the note cards, read them allowed, and have everyone guess who the note is about!

4. DIY Garland

If you are looking for an easy and cute DIY for your party, this is it!

I love how unique the garland is, and as I said before, whenever I get the chance, I try to add natural elements into my decorations!

Another great way to decorate leaves for a diy garland is to dip them partially in gold paint; this will give the leaves the most gorgeous look!

5. DIY Friendsgiving Table Runner

This DIY table runner gives you all the fall feels you are looking for; if you want, write your friend's names to really customize the runner!

You could also extend the brown paper to fully cover the entire table; this will give you the opportunity to customize the dinner table even more.

The options are truly endless when it comes to brown paper table coverings:

  • You can draw circles where each person's plates will go and write their names in the middle.
  • At each place setting you can write in calligraphy "I am grateful for...", layout markers and allow each of your friends to write down on the paper what they are grateful for.
  • Draw the lines to play tic tac toe and allow your guests to play against the people seated next to them.

5. Thanksgiving Menu

Having a menu is a seamless way to let everyone know what's available!

Here are things we should include in your menu: 

Dips - Since it's fall, I would recommend going for a warm dip, but if there's a cold dip you just love, go for it!

Biscuits - Biscuits make people happy and happy people have fun and are fun to have around. Need I say more?

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy - Friendsgiving parties always need mashed potatoes, they are essential.

Casseroles - You can't go wrong with a casserole, they are a perfect dish to have on the menu.

Turkey - The turkey can be daunting, but if you're hosting, I recommend keeping this task in your own hands, having to transfer a turkey from one house to another can be just as tricky!

Stuffing - Everyone appreciates a great stuffing, and they don't have to be complicated to make!

Pie - A classic of the Thanksgiving tradition; pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie you can't go wrong.
