Friendsgiving Recipes

The week before Thanksgiving is all about FRIENDSgiving — when we all get to hang with our closest pals, fill our bellies, and mentally prepare ourselves to hang out with our crazy extended families 🙂 What are you guys planning to make for the upcoming weeks? We scoured the inter-webs and are totally ogling over these tasty looking delights to bring and enjoy with friends:

Happy Weekend!

We visited this gorgeous little spot, Tatte Cookies and Cakes last weekend in Brookline. It’s delicious and completely adorable, but teeny tiny – don’t expect to sit inside, there are literally 3 little tables. But if you’re in the Boston area, you should pop in for a coffee and a treat, because it’s amazing.

What’re you all up to this weekend? Maybe stop by your local coffee shop (that isn’t Starbucks…) for some tasty treats! Have a great weekend!

cct // I’m nowhere near hosting my own Thanksgiving, but this schedule for first-timers seems pretty helpful!

rkv // I’m a freak for good scents (seriously, my perfume collection is a little bonkers), so I was very excited to see this article on 7 natural ways to make your home smells good for the holidays

cct // Some Free People tips on styling vintage clothing. Also – did you see that they launched their own vintage shop? It’s wildly too expensive, but they sure know how to pick unique items

rkv // Tomorrow night sounds like a perfect night for some mulled wine

cct // I want a Handsome Home – do you have one?

rkv // This idea for an eye-shadow cat eye sounds oh-so-easy

Festive Fall Gathering

HolidayParty_1

Although the temps are in the 30’s, we’re not giving up on Fall quite yet. So gather some friends and have one last festive fall gathering! *Hint, hint — Friendsgiving anyone?

The way to really make this work is to invite a couple friends and have them all bring 1 or 2 easy items like cheese, nuts, fruit, wine, etc., provide them with some cute dishes and you’re good to go! Last month Reg hosted a BYOC party — you guessed it, a “bring your own cheese party.” This was especially adorable due to the cheese labels (see here, here, and here), which help so that you don’t get confused about which kind you’re eating (it happens a lot!). Snack away while chatting, or even watching a show or movie.

Our little gathering is brought to you by Trader Joe’s and the H&M home goods section… hah, jk — but really, we got most of the delicious treats and pretty glassware from our two favorite spots. We pooled together on some brie, a cheddar-parmesan blend (which, BTW, is heaven on the rosemary-raison crackers), cashews, sparkling cider, and some fresh fruit for a divine feast for fools.

This turned out to be a delightful way to spend a chilly November Sunday. It isn’t Thanksgiving just yet, so we’re holding out a little longer on cute fall aesthetics.

(Christmas is still pretty damn cute though…)

Happy Weekend!
