1. White Night
Are your gals the light of your life? Then why not celebrate your friendship with a date to one of the biggest events in Melbourne. Exciting exhibits include the Sonic Light Bubble, Purple Rain, Peonies, and GIANT INFLATABLE BUNNIES! We cant wait to see you there.
2. Life Drawing
There are plenty of places around Melbourne (for instance Roar Drawing) that host life drawing workshops. Why not cultivate that creativity and attend one with your besties! Looking for a cheaper alternative? Pool your materials together, turn on Netflix and get painting with Bob Ross.
3. Hit Up A Football Game
Celebrate ultimate girl power and strength by attending a game of the woman’s AFL. Head to Whitten Oval to watch the clash of the Western Bulldogs and Melbourne this Saturday from 7.40pm. And view all future games here.
4. Cocktail Making Class
If you and your gal pals are more Sex in the City than dirt and art supplies, maybe a cocktail making or tasting experience would go over more smoothly with the ladies. Many Bars offer intimate cocktail classes on their quiet nights (mid week), just google ‘cocktail class’ to find the closest to you.
5. Floral Arranging
Playing with flowers is already one of my favourite things. So insert some friends and a glass of wine, and we’ve just created my ultimate crafternoon! To give yourself the most variety, have each friend purchase a different posie of flowers, and bring your own vase to cut costs!
6. Escape room
Not for friends with short fuses. An escape room is a great way to put your problem solving prowess into action, and celebrate a fandom that made your friendship flourish. Think apocolypse, zombies, conspiracy theories and ground zero. Already completed one? Why not try the game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.
