Looking for a fun reason to gather your best girlfriends for a fun moms night in? These bizarre & little-known October holidays provide many reasons to celebrate. Get your markers & calendars ready…you’re going to want to make a note of these!
October 6th – World Card Making Day (always the first Saturday in October): Do you have any scrapbook buddies in your group? Hosting a fun card making party is a great way to gather your pals for a creative moms night in! You can get started on some homemade Christmas cards or perhaps make a birthday card for someone special.
October 8th – National Kick Butt Day (always the second Monday in October): This is a day to kick your butt in gear to do something that’s been on your to-do list for way too long. For some added motivation, have each of the moms in your group share one goal they want to achieve on this day…then have everyone report back on their progress!
October 10th – National Cake Decorating Day: Have you always wanted to try cake decorating? A fun idea is to plan a moms night out at a local bakery or craft store that offers cake decorating classes. As an added bonus, you’ll have loads of cake to eat after class!
October 18th – National Chocolate Cupcake Day: I love cupcakes and I love chocolate – this holiday was made for me! If you have some bakers in your group, host a fun chocolate cupcake tasting party.
October 25th – World Pasta Day: This is a great reason to gather your best mommy friends at a local pasta restaurant. With so many variations of pasta, each mom in the group is sure to find something that she enjoys. You could even order a few different dishes and then serve them “family style” (set them all in the middle of the table and let each guest sample a little of each).
