Friendsgiving Place Settings – Pumpkin Pie Boxes with Candy Leaves

My husband and I decided to host our first ever Friendsgiving this weekend! We invited a few of our friends and got to planning. We will have all the classics; turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, and of course some delicious desserts too! Dessert isn’t just to be eaten this year though, our place settings are these cute pumpkin pie slice boxes.

I wanted to do a unique setting for our friends so I jumped on my Cricut Design Space and started looking around at projects. After a little searching I found this fun project. You can make it too if you search for Pumpkin Pie Box in Cricut Design Space! I clicked customize in order to add each of our names to the top of the box. It’s a step that takes an extra second but turned out wonderful! Plus there won’t be any disagreements about which box of candy is theirs at the end of the night! I got the paper supplies from Michaels Crafts and the Chocolate Leaves from Amazon.

Do you add place settings to your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving tables? What is your favorite place card?

Thanksgiving Themed Brunch

With the leaves falling outside, my husband and I hosted our first brunch married! If you are new to the blog, we do a brunch with my husband’s family where we rotate who hosts monthly. It’s been a tradition since June of 2019 with no end in sight. This was our first November brunch hosting so of course we took inspiration from Thanksgiving dinner! The tastes, smells, feelings of Thanksgiving were in our minds as we started to brainstorm ideas. I truly believe this was the best brunch we have put on yet! The food was delicious, I mean is there anything better than Pecan Pie French Toast??

Below is our menu (complete with our actual stuffing recipe from Thanksgiving made into stuffins), and how we arranged our table.

The place cards are compliments of Cricut! Super easy and fun to make. Search “Thanksgiving” on Cricut design space and you will find it.
