A Crafty Friendsgiving

 In DIY Projects, Holiday Themes, Lifestyle

If you’re anything like myself, you and your friends have been having the “let’s get together soon!” conversation on repeat for months and you have nothing to show for it. Especially at this time of year, we’re not always great at slowing down and taking a night off to celebrate ourselves and our friends.


So how do we find time for our tribe?


Maureen & Adria set up an entrepreneur dinner party for their favorite boss babes!





Once a month, a member of the group hosts a dinner party and they get to pick the theme for the meal. They design a fun menu around the theme and then plan a few activities for everyone!

The theme for this past month was Friendsgiving.



Over dinner, each person discussed what they were most proud of this past year and what they learned the most about. I love these questions because they’re a great way to reflect on your own growth and how you can continue to grow! It’s so important to look back every once in a while, otherwise you don’t always realize how far you’ve come!


I got to sneak a peek at Maureen’s answers…


What were you most proud of this year: Being nominated for Fast 50 for the  Charlotte Business Journal. It’s a collection of Charlotte, NC’s 50 fastest growing private companies and it’s an absolute honor to be named among all of these other amazing companies!

What were you learned the most about this year: Competition! I’m learning to compare myself to only myself and not to others. This applies to my life, business, fitness, etc.


And because no evening is complete without a craft…

What do you all think about these adorable chunky knit trees?



Obsessed! Am I right?


Hosting a monthly dinner party is such a great way to get your friends together instead of just talking about it! Mark a date and time on your calendar y’all, and pick a craft you’ve had your eye on, just because you can!



Thanks to all of the boss babes who were able to attend, and make sure to check them out!
