Happy Friday!

We are officially heading into another icy weekend at UIUC. Even though the temperatures will be rising to a generous 39°, it's still looking like we're snowed in a bit longer. And what pairs better with a cozy weekend indoors than a bottle of wine and a romantic period drama? We're obviously talking about Bridgerton! If you haven't taken the time to binge watch the first season yet, now is the perfect time. 

If you're ready to fully embrace the scandal and romance of London's high society, here are some ways you can take your Bridgerton viewing party to the next level! 

Make a Charcuterie Board

What's better than sharing a beautiful arrangement of snacks with your best friends (or enjoying by yourself - no judgement!) Whether you like a classic cheese and fruit board or a beautiful debbie snack cake assortment, these are so fun to put together and perfect for a classy night in. 

Set the Mood

It's never too early to start decorating for Spring! Take a quick trip to hobby lobby or Michaels and give your apartment a fresh Bridgerton makeover with some floral accents and candles. 

Download the Playlist

One of the best parts of the show is the beautiful soundtrack! Vitamin String Quartet transformed current hits like bad guy, Girls Like You and thank u, next. These covers are perfect for setting the tone for your watch party as well as your next study hangout.
