    I think that’s an amazing idea 🙂

    Well I’m not 21 anymore (24) but I would say I think it sounds like a great idea if you thinks its the kind of thing they would want to do. But, they might prefer to give you a certain amount of money and have you take care of meals. Hard to say–can you just ask them? Some people might prefer to pay you, others might think its fun, hard to say. Unless you’re trying to surprise them all, I would just ask what they think!

    This sounds awesome. I’d rather just give you money though. I also think you may be setting yourself up for stress the weekend of with having others handle meals. Some people are just flaky.

    I think it’s the best way to handle it.  Instead of 8 people each bringing a pack of hot dogs and buns, one person brings, and prepares their meal. 

    It also means that each person only has one thing to take care of.

    It is the only way to do a big group cabin experience in my opinion.

    This sounds like great planning and a lot of fun! It should work for all budgets because if one girl happens to be really college broke she can plan a cheaper meal that fits her budget.

    I think it sounds like a great idea!  I would have loved it when I was younger (and still would!)

    @Mrs_Amanda:  I think it will be a great idea and the only unknown is the meals so once you talk to them you can get a feel for if they would rather split up meals or just pay you. Back when I was in college my cooking skills were pretty limited and I probably would have preferred to give you $50 lol.

    You are a great sister! It’s awesome you are picking up the tab. That would have appealed me and is more the fair and reasonable.

    I think it’s a good idea but the meals could get confusing.

    I think the best way to do it would be to have a signup sheet and people can either sign up which meal they want to provide or you can list out the meals/dishes and people can sign up under what to bring. 

    Or…It might be easier for them just to give you grocery money up front and then you can plan out the meals and buy all the food and maybe they can be responsible for making it.  You could even have them work in pairs and sign up for which meals they would like to do.  It’s more fun cooking with 1 friend than by yourself.

    I would ask them which they prefer.

    i think overall great idea but i would suggest being a bit more specific…..like jen and sue you are in charge of lunch, paula and mary have dinner etc

    also dont forget to put someone on paper playes/cups/paper towel/utensil duty 

     

    i would also plan to.have more of a ‘party’ (sleepover) on sat nught for girls who cant do the whole weekend….maybe kareoke and a chocolate fondue?
