Friendsgiving is one of America's newest Thanksgiving celebrations and I for one, love the idea!
If you're unaware of this fun new way to celebrate, Friendsgiving is a lot like Thanksgiving. There's lots of food and people to share it with.
Friendsgiving is traditionally celebrated on the day after Thanksgiving when there's plenty of leftovers to go around so there's very little cooking or stress. While Thanksgiving is usually reserved for family, Friendsgiving is a fun day to get together with your friends, give thanks and share a few laughs together.
Of course, Friendsgiving can also be celebrated at any time during the Thanksgiving Weekend.
Here's ten invites to help you celebrate a good old-fashioned newfangled Friendsgiving Day.
10 Friendsgiving Invitations
Millennials may be taking credit for starting this tradition but I remember watching the television show, Friends, when they had their Thanksgiving shows and I always thought how cool it was that the gang all celebrated Thanksgiving Day together. I never even thought about it becoming a "thing" or a new tradition.
If you're planning your first Friendsgiving, keep it light and stress-free. This one isn't so much about the food or even the turkey. In fact, a great way to celebrate is to have everyone bring some leftover food or dessert from their own homes and enjoy the potluck bounty.
If you feel a bit more daring or have more time, make some new food using the leftover turkey and vegetables as a jumping off point. Or if you plan it right, you can cook for both days on Thursday.
Just remember that the main thing of any Friendsday celebration is to spend quality time with your friends.
Everything else is just topping on the pumpkin pie.
Celebrate with Friends

Customize the back of this Pumpkin Carving Party invite with your own party details in neon orange and yellow with some more cute and cool pumpkins on the back.. The flat-card invites measure 5.25" x 5.25" and come with a white envelope or you can upgrade to a custom color invitation. Happy Pumpkin Carving!
Our Personalized Retro Vintage Teddy Bear Picnic Birthday Party Invitations Would Be Perfect!

Adorable. Trendy. Fun!
OMG! I just came across the most adorable vintage-look Save the Date cards and I had to share them here. They look just like old-fashioned telegrams and with the growing trend towards modern-retro style, I think you'll love them as much as I do.

The design uses tones of light and dark brown with black lettering. The typography will take you back to the days of typewritten notes and the information is shared in a very cute way to let all of your intended guests to STOP before making other plans on your big day.
