Top Three Party Ideas for the Sophisticated Mom
May 25, 2011
Hey Mom’s! Jessie Watanabe here to give you some ‘sophisticated’ party ideas! Get away from your insane “mom world” and have a tranquil night with your friends!
1. Mom’s Simple Cocktail Party
Looking for a mature way to gather with friends, but still let loose a little with some alcoholic beverages? A Simple Cocktail Party is perfect for you.
A mom is like a superhero that is able to cook, clean, bring the kids to school, and possibly work themselves. I’m sure you could use a break from that chaotic world.
Start by inviting your close friends and family. Everyone must be in formal dress to change up the “mom jeans” look. Drink classy alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages, whichever your guests and you would prefer. Keep little snack items around your party area, such as pretzels, peanuts, or cheese and crackers. Music choices could include soft classical or anything remotely relaxing. Send your kids to a friend’s house for the night to keep them out of your hair.
This type of party is supposed to let you relax and get away from your normal every-day craziness. No need to stress if anything happens to go wrong with decorations or food. Although it is in your motherly instinct, try to stay calm and collected to keep your guests and yourself happy.
2. Mom’s Intelligent Book Party
Are you looking for a fun, but slightly educational way to meet with your friends every once in a while, like the movie "Jane Austen Book Club"? An Intelligent Book Party will keep you in touch with all of your friends, while also getting a bit of light reading in!
As a mom, it is hard for you to keep connected with your friends because of all you do around the house and with your kids. This type of party is a great way to get away from your kids and hang out with friends to discuss a good book.
First, you need to pick out a book. Make sure it is appropriate for your age level, but not so complex because, remember, your friends have lives of their own too. Pick one day every couple of weeks or once a month to meet to discuss what you have read so far. Set these days, and set the amount of chapters that need to be read by that day.
This party will help you take a break from your family life and stay close with good friends. So kick back, relax, and grab a good book and a glass of wine.
3. Mom’s Basic Baking Party
If you and your friends are semi-decent cooks, this Basic Baking Party is for you. Take some time with your friends to learn how to cook something none of you ever have before.
If you want to go big, you can hire a professional chef to help you and your friends cook something spectacular. Otherwise, just grab a cookbook, and pick something that looks delicious and do-able. Make sure you have all of the ingredients and enough for all of your friends to use when they come over, as well. If you do not have enough cooking utensils for everyone, you can ask them to bring their own, or each person can have one specific job in the cooking process.
While your food is cooking, chill out with a cocktail or glass of wine and catch up with your friends. Reminisce old memories, or even talk about your future plans. Take advantage of this time with your friends, because with lives as hectic as yours, there is not a lot of time to just “chat” anymore.
There you go! Those are only three simple party ideas, but you can always come up with something on your own!
