How to Host A Small Gathering When You Have a Big Group of Friends

May 30th, 2018

Friends — they’re the family you choose, and for many of us, the sources of joy, happiness and community that make adulthood fun. At times, though, even our best friendships aren’t without drama, and if you find yourself part of a large friend group (or several!) you’ve experienced the stress of trying to host or travel with a small, intimate group of them. If it seems like a lose-lose situation where someone will always inevitably be hurt… we feel you. Every relationship is different, but by navigating the situation thoughtfully, you just might minimize the melodrama and protect some feelings.

    I have a smaller, more manageable group of friends so I’ve never encountered this problem, but it sounds like such a hard thing to navigate! Great tips!

    Social media sure has complicated our lives! Although I do love it for keeping in touch with folks that aren’t in the area, it’s a good idea to watch what you post. You can always text your guests your favorite photos.

    Great tips though for some reason someone who wasn’t invited to the party always ends up hurt and creates drama
