@MOHlookingForIdeas:  what about a girl’a day out shopping and a ‘slumber party’ evening. Maybe stay in a hotel in your nearest city and order pizza and have popcorn and junk food watching a DVD. Its a tough one and this is the only thing I can think of. I was toying with this for a friend’s hen and I regret not doing it. She sounds similar to your friend.

ETA You could do one of your suggestions and then the slumber party. Also, people could have a couple of drinks if they want but there’s no pressure to..

My first thought was a Canvas and Cocktails type thing, till you mentioned their fine art experience.

Burlesque show

Ballet or Opera

Slumber Party with romcom movies, snacks, drink bar (alcohol and non-alcohol)

Cooking Class

I also vote for the slumbe party idea.  Those are always fun and you could do movie, board games, etc…and just for the girls.  But since you have some new moms and (I’m assuming) probably some girls with newer husbands and such, how about a pool party and cookout in the afternoon with the men and new babies….if she wants to include the guys of course!   Then when it gets later, everyone leaves and all the ladies continue with the sleepover!

@MOHlookingForIdeas:  I agree with the PP’s maybe just staying in (or getting a hotel room) would be nice.  What about going out for dinner and then coming back to the hotel/house for relaxing and some games? You could even buy her a game to play that night as one of her gifts?

 

 

If there there are going to end up being men there what about a BBQ in the afternoon (depending on time of year, and your location) and you could find games that accomodate 12(ish) people to play where everyone could be involved!

@MOHlookingForIdeas:  I went to one where we had dinner at a fun restaurant with huge pitchers of margaritas and then we walked down to a dueling piano bar. It was fun because it was a really popular place, had live music, but wasn’t the same club-type atmosphere. They also pulled the bride-to-be on stage and serenaded her – but we paid the piano players extra to do that. Then we all went back to someone’s apartment and did the slumber party thing.

I know this falls under the dancing category somewhat, but it’s slightly unique.

@MOHlookingForIdeas:  I’ve done a murder mystery event and it was actually a lot of fun, we did the vegas-themed one and everyone got dressed up for their part.

if you’re looking for a fun, explicit game– try cards against humanity, its bacailly a totally inappropriate version of apples to apples. I’m sure you’d all get some great laughs out of it. especially if your bride-to-be is pretty relaxed about those kinds of things.

I think getting a big suite at a hotel would be a fun idea, do dinner and what not and then go back for some fun/ night away from home.

You could find a drag queen show in the area, i know around here we have drag queen bingo which some ladies opt for, for a fun night out.

@MOHlookingForIdeas:  I have friends like that! What they did was a painting class where you paint a picture and can have a glass of wine or soda and then go out to dinner. They got a big table and just talked the night away.

I think murder mystery and themed parties could be fun, but you need everyone to be into it. We liked the class and dinner route so that people could come late or for only part of the night.
