Rustic Friendsgiving Decor

Rustic Friendsgiving Decor | BalsaCircle.com

We love this time of year and sharing tasty home-cooked treasured recipes with friends and family is our favorite part of celebrating! We know not everyone has a chance to make it home for the holidays, so this year, we wanted to create a look that would be perfect for a Friendsgiving celebration! Friendsgiving is simply a Thanksgiving meal you share with your friends. Sure, there’s probably still turkey and stuffing, but it can be less traditional and more of a pot-luck style meal.

Our idea for this dinner was all about high style on a budget – and a couple of fun DIY tutorials to make with friends. We decided on a rustic theme with a warm color palette of cream, champagne, gold, natural rustic brown, and black. Remember, your Friendsgiving can be any style – there are so many creative ways to celebrate! We hope this inspires you! Happy (early) Thanksgiving from Balsa Circle!

Bridesmaids Party Brunch Table

Bridesmaids Party Brunch Table | BalsaCircle.com

Have a party and celebrate with your bridesmaids! For this look, we went with a Paris-theme and a pink/black/white color palette. Accenting the wall with balloons really pulled the look together, as did the Eiffel Tower LED centerpieces and the pink and cream peony silk flower bouquets. Set a cute brunch table with  sequins or choose your wedding colors – the possibilities are endless! For the favor box DIY, we used our cupcake boxes and champagne flutes – shop the whole look here.

Make sure to check out our “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” video and print out the template for your bridesmaids proposal! We’d love to see your unique take on this – share your favorite party ideas with us @BalsaCircle on Instagram!
