Our group of friends enjoy a good party. We have several annual events that everyone looks forward to. My husband and I host a yearly shrimp boil during Lent - it’s a great time and the guest list grows every year as people hear about it and want to be included.
We also host a Christmas brunch for our closest friends and their families. It was strange this year because we had to coordinate it with all of our college age kids coming home for break. Our best friends all have the same age children who were Frosh last year. Does anyone else find that your friends are determined by the age and sex of your children?
About every 4 or 5 years, we have a “Beer Around the World” party. Our guests are assigned a country and are asked to bring a 6 pack of beer from that country, an appetizer that represents that country and make up a toast. When it’s your turn, you make your toast and we pass around dixie size sample cups of the beer. DH and I always assign ourselves the USA to make sure there’s some drinkable stuff there!!
Any other fun ideas for parties?
