Friendsgiving 2013

This year, our annual Friendsgiving party was a little earlier than usual; the first weekend in November was the only weekend we had free! We decided to throw a big party this year at David’s school instead of having a smaller party at our apartment and ended up inviting about 30 people to the dinner. Charlotte, David’s office manager, and I put on the dinner with lots of help from my friend Stephane (he was a lifesaver and let us cook turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and a turducken at his place), my cousin and his girlfriend, who picked up a ton of food in New Jersey, and Dig Inn, who delivered the additional food that we had catered. Ken also helped by buying a ping pong table and delivered it to David’s for the party (it was a huge success!). He also went to every store in the New York area looking for Christmas lights (he found them at the Target in Harlem in case you’re looking for similar Christmas lights). Some photos:


Charlotte and I made one long table instead of separating it into multiple smaller tables. She brought leaves from the park for color, we had lots of candles surrounding the leaves (in glass containers so nothing was going to light on fire), cinnamon-scented pine cones, and small gourds and pumpkins. Another shot:


Since we had so much food, we did a big buffet and even had everything heated with small ethanol containers – this was super helpful and kept the food warm the entire time! I’ll definitely buy them again (at Party City) for our next Stacksgiving party:


Charlotte even made really cute plates (you can kind of see it in this photo):


After our big dinner, we played ping pong, Apples to Apples, and ate lots of dessert that Stephane made (he made a chocolate mousse that I didn’t want to share with anyone!) This year’s Friendsgiving was definitely the biggest we’ve ever done – I don’t know how we’re going to top it next year!
