The Bellevue Collection's Friendsgiving

Often celebrated in the few days or weeks before Thanksgiving itself, Friendsgiving is a tradition for many. It can be a great chance to catch up with friends, test recipes before you serve them to your mother-in-law, or just enjoy entertaining without the pressure of a formal table setting. At The Bellevue Collection, we have everything you need for a creative, stylish, and most importantly, fun Friendsgiving.

Set The Menu

Whether you’re a culinary master or Most Likely to Microwave, Friendsgiving is the perfect time to try new recipes and set a menu your guests will enjoy. These cookbooks are full of tasty ideas to help you make this celebration your most scrumptious one yet.
