Thanksgiving is all about spending time with your family, but what about your friends? Instead of having one holiday dinner this year, make plans to host your very own Friendsgiving. It gives you a chance to share a meal and good times with those who are close to you, as well as an opportunity to practice cooking and hosting for Thanksgiving. Devon Self Storage is here with tips on getting started with a new tradition this holiday season.

Planning a Friendsgiving Party

Whether you’re hosting your get-together in your hometown or going out of town, it’s a good idea to schedule the event well in advance. If you wait too long, everyone may already have made plans with their families for Thanksgiving. Once you have everyone keen on the idea, it’s time to start the party planning.

  • Set the date. Scheduling the event before Thanksgiving weekend is a great time since everyone will already be preparing for the holiday, but won’t be too stressed out yet.
  • Plan the food. But don’t put it all on yourself; if everyone brings a dish or two, there will be plenty to go around.
  • Have everything ready. You’ll need plenty of utensils, décor, and dinnerware for the event, including enough chairs to go around.

Make Room for Your Guests

A cramped space can put a damper on your gathering. If you have clutter or unnecessary furniture in the way, a storage unit may be your answer to making room for the event. Temporary storage is ideal for the holidays as it allows you to clear out space in your homes to accommodate numerous family members – and friends. At Devon, our flexible, month-to-month contracts let you rent a storage unit for the holiday season, or however long you need.

Happy Friendsgiving From Devon Self Storage

Starting a Friendsgiving tradition is a great way to connect with your friends and to give thanks for all that they do. When prepping your home for the event, store clutter and non-essential belongings in our storage unit near you. Our units come in handy for both short- and long-term storage needs and can give you the necessary space at home to host your holiday gatherings.
