Pinterest Reveals the 5 Hottest Friendsgiving Trends
If you're spending this Thanksgiving with friends instead of family, you're not alone. Friendsgiving is a growing holiday tradition, especially among millennials, and friendsgiving hosts are increasingly turning to Pinterest to look for entertaining ideas that will make their Turkey Day special — even if they can't be with their kin. So what is everyone pinning? Pinterest shared the most popular friendsgiving decor trends for 2016 with us, and we're sharing them with you ahead.
Decorated Bar Cart
Since many friendsgiving revelers live in apartments without fireplaces, they're dressing up their bar cart instead of their mantle with decor like pumpkin ice buckets. These stylish Thanksgiving bar carts are up more than 20 times over last year on Pinterest.
Just in case guests forget that this isn't just another dinner party, but a holiday about gratitude, there are clever decor pieces, such as placecard printables to get the deep conversation started.
Casual, earthy tablescapes are on trend for Thanksgiving. Informal, unfussy materials like centerpieces scavenged in the front yard or kraft paper tablecloths are the most popular.
Wanting to up the formality of this new tradition, many friendsgiving hosts are sending out traditional invites to their bash. In fact, friendsgiving invitations are pinned nearly six times more than holiday party invitations.
Chic Indigo Pumpkins
Pinterest says the indigo dye trend is up 36 percent from last year, and it's even spread to holidays like friendsgiving, where they lend a nice pop of color. These DIY marbled indigo pumpkins have been saved nearly 15,000 times in the few weeks since they were first saved to Pinterest.
