What are you up to this weekend? If you've been toying with the idea of hosting a get-together with your friends, then I've got the perfect inspiration for you.
Earlier today, I introduced you to Colleen Reilly and Stephania Stanley, two friends who've been hosting girls' night get-togethers complete with crafts, cooking, and lots of conversation for seven years running. In the first part of our interview, where the two discussed their Thursday night dinners, they offered some general tips on getting your own event started. Now they're back with even more ideas to make your hosting dreams a reality.
CasaSugar: What would you recommend as a good starter Thursday night craft night or dinner hosting experience?
Colleen Reilly: Our "Not Your Typical Doily-ed Valentines" are a good starter Thursday craft because the supplies needed are very shareable and they require little artistic skill, so ladies who don't feel as confident in their crafting abilities can feel comfortable to join in.
Stephania Stanley: Anything in our Lazy Thursdays section on our website would be good for a starter Thursday. Also, Yiayia's Quick Bean Soup is a great, easy cold weather recipe that will feed a lot of people.
