Thanksgiving isn't only about turkey and hanging out with relatives anymore. According to the party experts at Evite, 18% of adults 30-39 are dedicating separate gatherings to friends, or expanding long-established gatherings to include friends. Need party inspiration? Evite shares 3 kinds of parties to mix up the traditional Thanksgiving get-together.
1. Wine with Friends: Time spent together is better than time spent in the kitchen. Choose a few finger foods, a bottle (or two) of wine and get together with your bestie(s).
2. POTLUCK: Since 44% of adults surveyed plan to share kitchen responsibilities with their hosts this year, potlucks are making a comeback for Thanksgiving celebrations. Incorporate a potluck for your next office or house party and lighten the cooking load.
3. FRIENDSGIVING: Friendsgiving is Thanksgiving on your own terms. According to Evite, Friendsgiving continues to grow: 35% more events planned so far this year are Friendsgiving-themed over last year. So invite all your favorite people over, serve your favorite food and celebrate the holiday season together.
