Family celebrations at the holidays are a given, but Friendsgiving has to be one of the best trends in recent years. After all, what’s more fun than enjoying a delicious meal with some of your closest pals? Let us take the pressure off you this holiday season by offering our five tips to help plan a Friendsgiving that is sure to designate you as the ‘hostess with the mostest’ among your peers.

1. Enlist Good Company

You can’t have a Friendsgiving without the friends. Make your guest list and deliver some invites (or e-vites for a more budget-friendly option). Be sure to let them know Bojangles’ will be served!

2. Serve a Bojangles’ Seasoned Fried Turkey

Everyone knows a holiday dinner is only as good as its turkey. If you want to be sure to win over the dinner table, pre-order our Seasoned Fried Turkey from your local Bojangles’ before they’re gone! (Note: Seasoned Fried Turkeys are available at participating locations for a limited time while supplies last starting 11/5/2018.) Our fully cooked, heat-and-serve turkey serves up to eight people and is sure to leave your guests dreaming about its Cajun-inspired flavor until next year rolls around.

3. Go Potluck on the Food

Share the other menu responsibilities by dividing and conquering the food prep. Ask your friends to bring their favorite holiday dish so there are plenty of options for everyone to share. Of course, nothing complements a good meal like Bojangles’ made-from-scratch biscuits, so be sure to order some of those to go along with the Seasoned Fried Turkey.

4. Play Games

While you’re waiting on dinner time, spread the holiday cheer with some classic fun by playing newer games, like Heads Up, or enjoying something more traditional, such as a round of Charades. Loser does the dishes!

5. Pass the Traditions

The holidays are nothing without special traditions. Maybe it’s watching the Macy’s Day Parade or football games, helping your parents clean the kitchen while listening to your favorite holidays tunes or going on a post-meal hike. Share your favorite traditions with your friends this Friendsgiving to inspire each family to start new ones of their own.
