LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With the most-anticipated meal of the year just weeks away, Americans may be stressing about perfecting their Thanksgiving meal or making time for friends and family. In a recent Skout poll, 61% of survey subjects stated their favorite part of Thanksgiving is quality time with loved ones. With that in mind, Evite's party experts offer no-stress twists on celebrating the holiday, summarized in the attached infographic:
- Friendsgiving: Not just a Millennial trend, Friendsgiving is Thanksgiving on your own terms. According to Evite, Friendsgiving continues to grow: 35% more events planned so far this year are Friendsgiving-themed over last year.
- Potlucks: Long associated with casseroles and office parties, potlucks are adopting a new spin in the age of the "foodie". "Potlucks are no-brainers: it's good food with good company, and much less work to put together than a huge dinner," said Victor Cho, CEO at Evite.
- Wine (or Cocktails) with Friends: Gathering over something simple like drinks provides the perfect opportunity to share gratitude for busy professionals, cocktail lovers, or people who just prefer not to cook.
To encourage memory-making, Evite is launching their Party for a Tablet Thanksgiving Sweepstakes on October 31, 2016. By sending an Evite invitation for a Thanksgiving event from bit.ly/EviteThanksgivingSweeps, hosts will automatically enter to win everything necessary for a D.I.Y. photo booth, including a tripod and a tablet loaded up with the Evite Photobooth app. The app, available for iPad in the App Store for $9.99, lets users customize photo strips with designs, borders and filters, then share digitally or via print.
"The key part of the holiday is making new memories with the people you're thankful for," said Cho. "We hope to facilitate that this season."
