Hosting a picnic on the lawn with a small gathering of really close friends sounds fun. Taking all the safety precautions to ensure protection against the Coronavirus like sanitizing the area and use of face masks can solve the problem of having to stay away from friends on a friendship day.

Refraining from using any public barbeque pits or even cooking food, you could easily order meals from food delivery sites like Deliveroo. This would save you a lot of time and rescue you from using those public barbeque pits that might be infected. However, it would be safe if you coordinate with your mates to make sure you all have your own utensils, seasonings, and other picnic essentials.

You could even play games like truth or dare, spin the bottle, or dumb charades to entertain yourselves.

Plan post-friendship day celebrations
