The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker invited her model friends Lily Donaldson, Martha Hunt, her physical Therapist Dr. Jari, her brother Austin and her parents Scott and Andrew round to her lavish estate in Rhode Island, New England, for a fun-filled bash in the sand in celebration of the annual holiday.

Taking to her Instagram account throughout the festivities, the 26-year-old singer uploaded a photograph of her friends giggling on her lawn as they beat off the winter chill in their woolly hats.

As the darkness set over the US state, the blonde beauty encouraged her gang to head to the beach as they ran into the crashing waves and then raced back out before water seeped into their shoes, chased each other along the shore and took part in the popular mannequin challenge.

After running off some steam in the sand, Taylor took her group back to her mansion - which lies on the beach - later on in the evening for some delicious food and alcohol beverages.

Taking to his Instagram account during the evening, Taylor's best friend Todrick Hall uploaded a photograph of the 11-person troupe tucking in to their roast dinner around the table together.

He accompanied it with the simple caption: "Happy Thanksgiving."

Taylor's week has certainly been full of entertainment as just one day before she hosted Thanksgiving at her humble abode, the 'Bad Blood' pop star travelled to Manhattan, New York, to watch her close friend Todrick - a YouTube sensation - star in the musical 'Kinky Boots'.

After watching the production, Taylor rushed backstage to congratulate her pal on his performance and couldn't resist posing for a series of photographs with him dressed as his character Lola.

Taylor clearly enjoyed herself while watching the musical and urged her 93.6 million Instagram followers to watch the performance.

She wrote: "Went to see @todrick in Kinky Boots tonight and you just need to go see it. Not trying to be bossy. But you need to. Congrats also to Haven Burton, Aaron C. Finley and the rest of that RIDICULOUSLY FLAWLESS CAST. (sic)"
