Don’t get me wrong – nights of going out and enjoying a few drinks at the bar are certainly fun, but recently my friends and I realized we seldom do anything else together. That got us brainstorming on some fun things we could get together and do in 2019! Here are 5 super fun ways you can bond with your BFFs this year:
1. Host a Themed Potluck
Yes, potlucks are always a hit – but even more so if you set a challenging and fun parameter around the event. You can do anything from bacon-themed (this gets really interesting for the desserts) to the complete opposite: an all-vegetarian dish feast!
2. Rent a Karaoke Room
Since karaoke bars can be intimidating (and have supppperrrr long waits to actually get up on stage), a great alternative is to rent an entire karaoke room for you and your friends. My dream in particular is to have an entirely Disney themed karaoke night!
3. Have the Gals Over For High Tea
If you and your pals are as obsessed with Downton Abbey as much as I am, this one will definitely appeal. And who doesn’t love a good spread of dainties, sandwiches and of course tea while enjoying an afternoon with friends?!
4. Go to a ‘Selfie-Factory’
Stranger than fiction, the trend of “made-for-Instagram” museums seems to be getting even more popular. The premise of these museums lends well to taking photos in bizarre and beautiful exhibits, which makes for some fun and lasting memories with your friends. Not all cities will have these, so keep an eye out for a pop-up near your location!
5. Enjoy a Spa Day
While some spas have strict no-talking policies, others can be a great spot to catch up with the gals while also relaxing and treating yourself. Find a spa that has a talking area or even just hit the nail salon for a little pampering while also socializing with your besties.
