Fun Ways to Get Together With the Girls

Sometimes it seems like we spend so much time focusing on new ways to go on a date or enjoy time with our guy that we forget there's an entire world of ideas for spending time with just our girlfriends. So in support of hanging with your ladies, I've come up with some ideas to make for a memorable time. But feel free to weigh in with other ideas of your own!

  • Host a good old-fashioned cocktail party with a signature drink and appetizers. Spice it up by asking your friends to each bring their favorite dessert. When you're not munching on finger foods, you can indulge your sweet tooth.
  • Get active. Slip on your tennis shoes and hit the courts, or pick a safe trail in your town and go for a hike. If guys can have pick-up football games, why can't girls have impromptu sunset strolls?
  • Take turns giving dinner parties and trading recipes. It's a fun way to bond and learn something new!
  • To see my other ideas, just


  • Since most of us are trying to save money or can't take a few days off work for a vacation whenever we feel like it, try saving up to splurge on a cabin or house by the beach for a weekend together. It's a great way to actually relax for a while.
  • Try something completely out of your element! You can take a group self-defense class or sailing lessons. Exploring something new together is a great way to bond with your girls!
  • Throw an in-home dance party. You don't need a DJ or a full bar, just an iPod and your favorite bottle of wine. There's nothing like getting completely silly with your friends when there's no one around to watch!

And don't forget the Sex and the City night fall-back plan when all else fails. All it takes is a couple hours of good girl talk and a few hearty laughs to create the perfect get-together with your friends!

There are so many great things to do just as the girls! My friends and I always find the most random things, but it ends up making the best memories. Anything from bowling to paintball to slip in slide afternoons! Last night we actually went to a pole dancing class... something I vowed I would never be able to do without dying of embarassment but since we went as a group it was hilarious! Lovely_1- It was definetly one of the best nights ever! You will have a blast!!

Those are some great ideas. I also find just wandering downtown and hitting up areas you've never been can be interesting since Toronto usually has something going on. Restaurant/Lounge hopping can be fun too but that might get a bit expensive. In about two weeks we're going to Niagara for the weekend just to get away and relax before school starts [can't afford to leave the province much less country, lol] and it should be a lot of fun since we intend on staying at Clifton Hills [huge amount of things to do] then go clubbing and just enjoy ourselves. Movie nights are highly underrated as well. Before Mummy 3 comes out we're going to do something similar to the SATC party except it'll be the night before and we're sort of dreading this one since we adored the first two and this looks nothing like them. Oh, and there's a fitness club over here [flitygirlfitness] that we intend on visiting one weekend as well for a belly dancing session, should be mucho fun.

Great tips! Me and my girls are always going to Orlando every other weekend to go shopping, hit the clubs and relax at the beach and we're gonna do a day of paintballing [I'm so excited!]and we signed up for swimming lessons at the Y and self-defense classes as well. We're also going on a 1-week cruise this November to St. Maarten and Labadee. I don't know what I would do without my girls! :D
