I love to throw parties, but now that I have two kids cocktails or dinner parties aren’t always appropriate. That’s why I was happy to run across some ideas for DIY crafting parties over on The Daily Meal. With great options like pie-making, canning, or stationary-making, they’ve got a host of great ideas for fun gatherings that break from the party norm.
Head below the jump for 5 great party ideas.
Canning can be a lot of work--so why not invite some friends over to help? Consider making a few small batch jams--everyone can contribute different fruits and then take home a variety. Since you’ll be using a ton of dishes and the sink will be busy, serve an easy drink like beer, wine, or a pre-made punch. For food, serve up crisp veggies and chips with a homemade dip.
