Vancouver Dining: Friendsgiving #onRobson

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Robson Street hosted its 2nd Annual Friendsgiving #onRobson event to celebrate the season with an intimate gathering of friends, old and new.  A beautiful tablescape was designed by Blossom and Vine Floral Co. using fall blooms and pumpkins, as well as modern furniture and decor from CB2 on Robson Street, which was the perfect space for the evening. A traditional Thanksgiving feast was catered by Abode of Blue Horizon Hotel, complete with turkey, all the fixings and of course perfectly spiced pumpkin pie (topped with lots of whipped cream). With great food, friends and conversation, the evening left both our bellies and hearts feeling full and so very grateful.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving this coming weekend! And if you are not into leftovers or endless dishes, enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving menu at these restaurants #onRobson: Abode, Earls or Joe Fortes.
