Giving Thanks #onRobson

In celebration of the upcoming festive holiday, Robson Street hosted its very first Friendsgiving Dinner and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with friends, new and old! We gathered to give thanks over an intimate dining experience at the beautiful CB2 on Robson Street.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and be present with friends and family whilst sharing a lovely meal. Food always has a way of bringing people together, igniting meaningful conversations and connections and our hearts are full after last evening’s festivities.

Before we sat down to our family-style meal, Jaleh Fotoohi of JEvents Planning & Design provided our guests with her personal tips and tricks to inspire us to recreate our own well-appointed tables at home for Thanksgiving and other special occasions. Using several decorative accessories from CB2, small floral bouquets, white pumpkins, gold accents and of course candlelight, Jaleh created a beautifully adorned tablescape that set the mood for the evening.

Below are some tips for how you can make the most of your Thanksgiving table decor:

  • Don’t be shy to mix patterns and shapes.
  • If sticking with an all gold centerpiece, play with different textures and heights.
  • Small bouquets go a long way.
  • Invest in professional bouquets.
  • Candles set the mood.
  • Only use cutlery you need for the meal.

Thank you to our guests for joining our first-ever Friendsgiving Dinner; it was a memorable evening. Wishing all of our Robson Street friends, near and far, a wonderful Thanksgiving!

And a special thank you to CB2, Ladurée and Sandhill Wines for your support.
