Go beyond the Zoom Happy Hour

I’ve decided to amp up my Zoom get-togethers. Next weekend, for Mother’s Day, my family is having a ‘Nailed it’ baking competition. Joe is finding a ridiculous cake to make, and five mothers are going to attempt to recreate it in 90 minutes. Every time I think about it, I laugh and light up.


So I’m challenging you to think out of the Happy Hour box for your Zoom social events. Here are some ideas to get those juices flowing:

  • Flower arranging. (Buy kits from Poppy at Home to do together)

  • Book an experience from Airbnb’s new online experiences (Everything from tango to pasta making lessons)

  • Host a virtual movie or docuseries club (like a book club without the reading)


We’re in this for the long haul, so let’s have a bit of fun.
