Febgiving with lovely book club ladies

(Photos from real Thanksgiving at my house last year!)

I've been wanting to host a Febgiving feast ever since I saw the idea on Abbey's fantastic blog last year. How amazing does their party look?!

It was my turn to host book club at the end of February, so I took it as a sign from above to braise some turkey and whip up a batch of pumpkin crunch. Everyone was a wonderful sport about the slightly odd menu. We toasted with a bottle of bubbly at the start of the evening, and there was a pickle plate, perfectly roasted Brussels sprouts, wild rice and a creamy pumpkin soup. Oh my!

Without the pressure of actual Thanksgiving weighing on me, the basic menu was super easy and stress free. Also didn't hurt that everyone brought really wonderful things to share! It was such a fun way to celebrate a bit with friends at the end of winter.

Obviously we're past the "Feb" part of the feast, but I think there's still time to have a fake holiday with friends this winter, if you're feeling so inclined. Turkey and pumpkin crunch are always delicious.


  1. Love this idea...and your menu is making me hungry!

  2. Ashley, Febgiving is so fun! But of course, you guys already have lots of fun Feb celebrations!

  3. How fun! Sounds really yummy too...

  4. Melissa, it was fun! Not quite as glutenous as the real holiday, but pretty darn close!

  5. What a great idea! What book did your book club read?

  6. Lizzy, we read REBECCA by Daphne Du Maurier last month. Highly recommended!
