Hosting a Friendsgiving has become a millennial adulthood rite of passage, and frankly, a tradition that should have been started decades ago! Before your hectic family gathering, invite your closest friends to indulge in delicious food, drinks and enjoy one another’s company.
Don’t let the prospect of hosting get you stressed though! Here are some important tips to make sure you have the best Friendsgiving ever at your Madox apartment.

- Make an easy cocktail and look really classy – Impress your guests by having a fall signature cocktail. You can’t go wrong with a hard apple cider. Mix 8 parts apple cider and 1 part dark rum (you can also use a whiskey such as bourbon) in a punch bowl (or a nice mixing bowl). Add apple slices or cinnamon sticks and cloves if you want to make it extra pretty. Most of your guests will also bring some wine, just be sure to have some plastic glassware or regular glasses ready.
- Have containers for leftovers – Who doesn’t love leftover food from Thanksgiving? Chances are you’ll have a lot of delicious food that can be sent home with your friends! The next day they can heat it up and enjoy so it doesn’t go to waste.
