4. Day of Pampering
High-End Idea: Spa Outing. Book a nice comfy area in a local spa for the entire group. Then splurge on beauty treatments and massages. "Women enjoy gathering with friends and being girlie," says Maffeo. Individual treatments can cost from $40 to $300.
Affordable Alternative: DIY Beauty Party. Some supplies are in order, but who doesn't have nail polish, facial masks or scrubs at home? Maffeo suggests that each guest brings her own robe and flip-flops, so it really feels like a spa. Best food to serve? Wholesome snacks like fruit smoothies and sushi.
