Get a little physical in the great outdoors with the adrenaline-fueled fun of ziplining! Take your sense of adventure to new heights as you and your fearless friends soar through the treetops. Afterwards, throw a picnic or a cookout at a nearby cabin or campsite.
You’ll Need Some Active Gear to Get You Moving:

This is not your garden-variety garden party. Ask your friends to each bring bunches of flowers of their choosing, separate them by type, get schooled on some flower arranging tips, then let everyone create their own unique bouquets. You could also make terrariums with each invitee bringing different elements (like charcoal, moss, stones, succulents) or ask everyone to bring clippings from their own plants to trade, take home, and add to their growing gardens.
Floral fashion is all abloom this season:

Come. On. Now. Who wouldn’t want to hang out with a pack of alpacas or some lovable llamas for a day? Visit a farm or ranch that raises these personality-packed animals and go on a trek with them along a tranquil trail. You and your friends are guaranteed to giggle all the way. Finish off the day with refreshments and some silly stories to share.
We gotta lotta llama stuff, by the way:
