Party ideas – with a twist

Disclaimer – the photo has nothing to do with the topic…I just wanted to post and couldn’t find an appropriate photo.

One of the best birthday celebrations this year was a relatively inexpensive idea hosted by an amazing woman I know.

One of her favourite things to do is exercise and I have to say that it has taken me half my life to realise that nothing makes me feel better about life (and cope with ‘the winter blues’ or whatever you want to call it…) than exercise.

So her idea for her birthday was:

– She found an inexpensive space (okay, that could be the tricky part but there are halls that can be hired for $10 an hour or may be you have a big lounge)

– The day was two exercise classes taken by her friends – yoga and then pilates (you could do both or one or none)

– We then all shared the classic ‘potluck’ lunch together.

There were around twelve of us who had a great time, laughed lots, felt amazing at the end of the lunch and no-one was exluded due to not being able to afford it (and the birthday girl didn’t spend huge amounts of money either.

The best thing was she spent the day doing something she loved due to a bit of planning and thinking with a twist.
