You could also do a nail party (buy a wild assortment of colors; have a manicurist pay a house call); take a group lesson in belly dancing, square dancing, or any sort of movement that helps you get your groove (we used gifted sisters Veena and Neena—their video series, Bellydance Fitness for Beginners, will have you shimmying in no time); or invite guests to discover their destiny via a session with a psychic (or go to to get an online reading). And to send your friends home with more than memories, fill goody bags with party favors—like the cookbook One Potato, Two Potato, by Roy Finamore and Molly Stevens; Andrea Immer's Wine Buying Guide for Everyone; a manicure-pedicure set; or a belly-dancing kit complete with veils and spangles.
