I was browsing on Instagram last week and came across a post from a young couple enjoying each other’s company for a date night by creating their own winery. The wife budgeted $50 to buy a variety of wines, cheeses and salami, crackers, etc. to create the ultimate in home winery experience. I thought to myself, “How cute!”

With spending more time inside the house recently, my family and friends have become extremely creative for get togethers.

Check out a few ideas, below, to ensure you and your loved ones are not missing a beat!

1. Pajamas + Brunch

Gather your friends for a Saturday brunch. Cook your favorite breakfast foods and top it off with a delicious mimosa! Not sure where to start? No worries! Check out Delish for 50+ amazing mimosa recipes! Enjoy!

2. Virtual Book Clubs

Choose a book to read out loud with a group. This is also a good idea for a virtual play date with children. Consider these websites below for FREE digital downloads recommended for all ages (per your search preferences)!

Google E-bookstore

Amazon Free Fire Kindle Books

3. It’s 5’clock Somewhere!

Did someone say happy hour? Similar to pajamas and brunch, grab your girls or friend circle and pour a glass! If you’re using zoom, create a virtual background and pretend you’re on a tropical beach! Don’t know how? Click here to set your virtual background!

4. Netflix and Chill…on FaceTime!

Find a movie and press play at the same time! Grab your popcorn and chuckle together with a group of friends as you binge watch a series or watch a movie!

5. Enjoy a Live Concert or DJ on Instagram or Facebook

From popular DJ’s, to R&B legends, and song writers/producers, many of our favorite artist have been taking to social media to provide free concerts. Make sure you’re following your favs and staying in the know to be a part of a virtual party!

How have you become creative, virtually, to stay social?
