What’s Up Girlfriend?

Special thanks to Craftster moderator Mistress Jennie for compiling these projects and writing this fun article.

August 1st is National Girlfriend’s Day!  Whether we have a single bestie, or a gaggle of gal pals, National Girlfriend’s Day celebrates the special bond of friendship between women.  It’s a great reason to invite friends over for a night of girls only fun and laughter, and an excellent excuse to craft for those special ladies in our lives.

Any good girls night needs to start with luscious food and decor.  Lindseyt has a recipe for both with her Fruit Bouquets as an edible table centerpiece.

Since summer days are often sweltering, try serving onyxnox’s Thai Ginger Iced Tea to keep everyone cool and comfortable, so you can stay outside on the patio with your friends late into the night.
Keep the evening of fun flowing with a group craft.  Abbeeroad has a great tutorial for DIY Squirt Bottle Tie-Dye, with simple easy to find materials.  The best part is that if everyone brings their own shirt, they’ll get to take home a lasting memory of your Girlfriends Day celebration.
After cleaning up from crafting, sit down to MareMare’s Crockpot Baked Potato Soup and Mushroom & Goat Cheese Ciabatta Bread.  Making the soup early in the day in the crockpot leaves you free to spend quality time with your friends, instead of standing over the stove. The ciabatta can be store bought, then broiled for just a few minutes before going on the table.
Let’s not forget dessert! Acadian Driftwood’s Simple Lemon Strawberry Cake is a sweet way to end a fantastic meal with friends.
And finally, what’s a party without gifts?  Check out the beautiful woodland themed Gift Bags that TheMistressT put together for her sisters visit.  Try creating individual gift bags for your friends that contain their favorite colors of nail polish, or favorite teas & treats, to remind everyone that you love them for the individual woman they are.

Thanks so much to Mistress Jennie for all these great ideas! Enjoy your girls on the August 1st, and every day.
