My friend Mostly Happy Homemaker has a Cocktail Club with her friends. The brilliance of this was so overwhelming it has only taken me a year to actually start one of my own! The simple premise is:
Invite 6-12 couples.
Each couple hosts one or two parties a year.
This way you have a social event to go to every month with people you actually like to see! When it's your turn to host, you pick the theme, menu, cocktails etc. You can also invite who you want in addition to the cocktail club members.
I have been also inspired by my friend Carrie over at Pearl and Pierce. She has a cooking club she wrote about here. So gorgeous and fun!
Can't wait to see what the members decide to do!
