Celebrate Friendsgiving with Cranberries

*This post has been sponsored by US Cranberries. All opinions are our own.

There is nothing I love more than spending the holiday season with those that I love most. In our little world, friends are considered family so Friendsgiving was a concept for us even before the Millennial generation made it popular. Gathering friends for a wonderful meal is one of our favorite things about the season, whether we serve reimagined leftovers from a family event or create a special potluck meal with everyone bringing their favorite dishes. We love to create beautiful place settings and simply take the time to enjoy the warm, cozy atmosphere created by our favorite season.

Cranberry is one of the key flavors that I associate instantly with the Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving and holiday season. Fresh cranberries have a place in every meal and menu, bringing some tangy, sweet flavor to drinks, appetizers, desserts, and more. Whether you kick off your meal with a light bite like Cranberry Mini Pizzas, pair your dinner with a Cranberry Cosmopolitan, or enjoy delicious treats like Cranberry Cupcakes, America’s Original Superfruit® makes it feel like the holidays!
