Vancouver Dining: Friendsgiving #onRobson

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Robson Street hosted its 4th 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 green stems, 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 Lazy Gourmet, complete with turkey and all the fixings. We couldn’t skip out on the perfectly spiced pumpkin pie from Earls Restaurant, with lots of yummy ice cream and other fun toppings from Perverted. We also indulged in delicious candy apples and soft-centred caramels from Rocky Mountain Chocolate. 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.
