Friendsgiving – The Momentous Occasion


Protea Table

In my previous post about Friendsgiving (read here) I promised some photos of the Friendsgiving I hosted.

This was just one of those days everything came together perfectly, the weather, the turkey, the timing and the friends.

We enjoyed every last bit of it, but let the pictures speak for itself.

The menu of the day:


Okay so food is a big part of what makes a good dinner party, but what makes is great is the prep and of course the dinner table. I decided on a Protea theme as it is fresh and truly South African. Here is some pics of the dinner table.

Thank you for sharing this experience with me.

Drop me a comment if you want to know any recipes from the menu, I’m sure I can twist a friends arm for it.

If you want to make this for snacks why not use a mini muffin pan.
