It’s Spring! Time to dust off the winter blues, gather up your girlfriends, and celebrate the season. Here are seven great ideas for spring girlfriend get-togethers.
Pasta Party: What is better than an evening with pasta, garlic bread, and wine? Invite your girlfriends over for a spring pasta party! Whip up two different kinds of pasta, two or three light sauces featuring spring veggies (think baby zucchini and asparagus), ask friends to bring a variety of wines, and voila!
Sangria Soiree: Nothing says spring like a lazy afternoon spent with girlfriends sipping a fruity sangria. Splurge on colorful plastic goblets and a bright tablecloth to set the mood. Pretend you’re traveling together to Napa or on a cruise and enjoy a break with your BFFs!
Seed Swap: Every year I buy packets of seeds to plant and only use a portion of the seeds in each pouch. Why not share the bounty? Invite your girlfriends to bring over a packet or two (depending on the size of your gathering) of their favorite seeds. Have lots of small envelopes and a variety of permanent markers on hand. Encourage your guests to label and decorate the envelopes and share seeds and planting instructions. (Or bring over your seed starters – and share some baby plants.)
Old Fashioned Slumber Party: Remember how much fun slumber parties were when we were kids? Now is the perfect time to bring the fun back. Stock up on slumber party essentials: movies, popcorn, ice cream, nail polish, and fuzzy slippers, and plan to sleep in the next morning.
‘Tizer Teaser: Sometimes planning a dinner party can feel overwhelming. Try an evening of ‘tizers—appetizers! Set out a variety of cheeses, dish up some tasty hors d’oeuvres, and make a meal of these delectable bites.
Progressive Dinner: Can’t decide where to go for dinner? (Wherever you want. No, no, wherever you want. Really, it’s up to you.) No need to narrow down the options! Pick one spot for drinks and appetizers, another for the main course, and a third for a fabulous dessert. You can go really wild and choose a fourth for after dinner drinks, coffee, and more great girlfriend conversation.
Munch a Brunch: There is something luxurious and decadent about even the most informal of brunches. Menus can be sweet or savory or both. From bagels to eggs Benedict, you can make the recipes as simple or involved as you choose. Be sure to tell your guests what time you expect them—brunch can be pretty much any time of day!
What are your favorite ways to get together and greet spring? We’d love to hear your great ideas, girlfriend!
