WFMW ~ Ladies Night Out

I haven't done a Works forMe Wednesday for a little while because frankly I was running out of what was working for me. :vD
But from my post yesterday I was asked to name some of the activities that my ladies group has done together. Now if you don't read my site normally, I'll just pause to say this is a group of ladies who get together once a month just to get to know each other and build relationship and have a night of fun. A different member each month plans the activity. For more info on this group you can read about it here.

Now here's activities we've done so far:
~gone to an evening class with the community schools on decorating and ideas for entertaining for Christmas
~Christmas cookie exchange
~baby shower for one of the ladies
~craft night making bath salt gift jars and gift tags

Coming up with the group:
~learning to make sushi
~bowling with a "dress" theme (I think it's going to be tacky, loud shirts)

Past groups have done:
~a salsa dance lesson
~tea and dessert at an antique store and tea room
~movie night either at theatre or at home with a good movie

Some more ideas:
~art gallery tours
~museum tour
~country line dance lesson
~pedicures at a salon school
~painting or drawing lesson
~meet the author nights at libraries
~a home spa night
~games night
~fondue party

Places you can look for ideas:
~local paper
~a local college for one evening courses
~local libraries
~community school newletters
~parent's places
~craft store classes
~your church for ladies who can teach something they are talented in
~ask your blogging friends (who came up with some of these ideas when I asked)

A night out once a month with a group of ladies Works For Me!

Thanks for a the ideas Susanne! I normally have friends over once a month to play games and eat, but these ideas sound like so much fun:)We'll have to give some a try.

Andrea said...

Susie said...

What fun and unique ideas! I may use one of these for my bible study ladies for a end of study party. Thanks!

Beck said...

That sounds like SO much fun!

This sounds like so much fun. Now to find ladies that have time for a night out. The ladies I know always have kids' sports and the like in the evenings. We tried planning stuff, but finally gave it up. :(

Barb said...

You and your girlfriends sound like such a fun group. It's the best therapy in the world to set aside a regular night out with friends like this - something to look forward to and even better, a lot of relaxing fun.

With the exception of learning to make sushie (blech) all of these sound like great things to do together. :-)

I love this idea! It would be so much fun to do this kind of group each month. I really like the way you all pass around whose turn it is to plan the activity - allows for a lot of creativity and no one person feels overwhelmed with the pressure of doing it all the time. These are great ideas. Thanks Susanne.

Women's groups like this are so fun--and needed, esp. for moms with little ones at home. I'm glad you're involved in one.

Lotsa love to you, Susanne.
