Remember back in January when we challenged you to make one resolution this year? And of course, that resolution was to throw Fabulous parties…but it was with a twist! We challenged you to resolve to throw Fabulous non-traditional parties and to get you started, we provided you with some Fabulous non-traditional ideas for January. To help you keep your resolution, we will continue to provide you with monthly ideas for your bashes…so what Fabulous non-traditional fun can you get into for February?
February is a popular month for hearts and romance. It is after all:
- American Heart Month
- An Affair to Remember Month
- Creative Romance Month
- National Weddings Month; and,
- The 3rd week is International Flirting Week
But fear not, single hostesses, there is plenty of non-traditional Fabulous fun for you to have this month as well!
