How To Host A Friendsgiving & DIY Kraft Paper Table Runner

November 22, 2021

Hello and welcome to the final countdown to Thanksgiving. Can you believe we are just three days away... For those of you who are looking for last minute Thanksgiving ideas look no further! My Florida daughter and her husband hosted a Friendsgiving for her nursing friends and shared it with me. Today I am sharing all of the decorating tips and menu suggestions for hosting your own Potluck Friendsgiving.  Plus this most adorable  Friendsgiving DIY Table Runner using Kraft paper and black sharpies.

Turning Kraft Paper Into the Most Adorable Friendsgiving Table Runner

My Favorite Thanksgiving DIY Project Using Kraft Paper

    This has to be one of my favorite Thanksgiving DIY's using Kraft paper (also known as butcher paper) as a Table Runner.

    Hand Lettering Or Vinyl Adhesive Stickers


    If you are gifted with a steady hand and the skill of hand lettering please go ahead and do this without any other supplies than a sharpie! My daughter did. I would not have the skill set to do this. Seems I have not advanced past third grade in drawing or lettering! So investing in Vinyl Adhesive Stickers is a great choice and a must for me.

    Write What You Are Thankful For

    Dedicate one of the Kraft paper DIY Table Runners for guests to write out what they are thankful for. I just love this friend activity!

    The hostess starts this activity by writing her Thanksgiving affirmations on the Kraft Paper before guests arrive, once guests arrive they too can write notes on what they are Thankful for.

    Instructions On How To Make A DIY Kraft Paper Tablecloth

    • Before cutting Kraft paper measure the length of your tables, counters or bar area to determine the desired length of your Kraft paper table runner.
    • Measure Kraft paper and cut to length measured.
    • Place on tables, bars etc..
    • Hand letter affirmations or apply vinyl stickers onto Kraft Paper Tablecloth.

    Friendsgiving Food Ideas

    A Friendsgiving menu follows very few rules if any. So if you decide to stay traditional and cook a Turkey and stuffing that is wonderful. But should you choose to serve lasagna or appetizers that is awesome too!


    One of the nicest things about a Friendsgiving besides the camaraderie is how low-pressure it is.
    No worries about family travel plans, organizing the kitchen or cooking all day.
    To help out with the celebration I have put together six favorite Friendsgiving Potluck Ideas.
