Host a party weekend for girls that let your guests escape from the kids, spouses and stresses of life for two solid days. Whether you hold the party at your own home or head to a specific destination, work out the logistics ahead of time. Pick a girls party weekend theme and venue that not only works with the interests of your guests, but also with the budget of everyone involved.
Cookie Party Weekend
Invite guests to a weekend full of baking. Keep cardboard boxes on hand, such as gift boxes for guests to take home their creations at the end of the weekend. Ask each guest to bring at least one recipe that they want to share with the group. Purchase flour, sugar, vanilla, eggs and anything else needed to create the cookies. Divide the girls into multiple groups, having one group baking their cookie recipes and other groups tasting the dishes. Show cooking and baking themed movies throughout the weekend or, play a cooking television channel in the background.
Offer your guests the chance to make quilts, scrapbook or learn new crafting techniques, such as knitting, over the course of the weekend. You can stick to one specific craft or focus on a different craft each day. Hire a professional to work with the guests and teach them the fundamentals of the crafts. Keep the necessary supplies on hand and ask each guest to bring basic tools or needed items, including photographs, fabric swatches or scissors.
Depending on the budget of your guests, you may opt for a spa getaway or weekend party. Find a resort or hotel with its own day spa and ask about any package deals for a small group. Often, the package includes the hotel room and specific treatments from the spa. Larger packages even include meals at the resort. The advantages to hosting a spa girls weekend party away from your home is that you aren't required to clean up after the weekend or pay for everything.
For girls that prefer the outdoors, take the group on an outdoor party weekend. Borrow a camper or several tents from friends and family members. Set up the tents at a local campground and spend the weekend swimming, hiking and cooking over an open fire. If the budget allows, then plan extra events, such as canoeing, white-water rafting or rock climbing.
