Did you know that the average woman has a circle of four to six friends? As you grow older, you may notice that you only have a handful of friends who stick around, through the good times and bad.
Have you ever thought about hosting a girls’ night to celebrate your friendship with the closest people in your life? Here are some of the best ideas for your next girls’ night in, to make it more memorable than ever.
Stock up on Easy Snacks
What is a girl’s night in without tons of delicious snacks? You can use the event as a perfect excuse to indulge in all of your preferred junk foods.
Before you host your girl’s night in, ask everyone if they have a favorite snack that you can buy at the grocery store. That way you will have them all prepared before anyone walks through the door.
Put on a Movie
Nothing goes better with good snacks like a movie. Chick flicks are always a good choice for a girl’s night in, and they are universally liked.
Before your party, you can send out a survey to ask people what types of movies they prefer. That way, you can put on something that everyone will enjoy.
If you want to go crazy, you can even try watching a good series back to back. Some of the most popular movie parties include Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
Decide on a Theme
No party is memorable without an interesting theme. When you think about what type of party you want to have, consider the interests and hobbies of your guests.
Once you find a theme, try centering your food and entertainment around it. For example, if your theme is under the sea, try getting sushi or food with fish in it.
If you have your party around the holidays, you can have a holiday girls night. Watch Christmas movies and make your favorite holiday treats.
You can also visit your local party supply store and pick up decorations and party favors for the theme that you choose as well. That way, your guests will have something to bring home with them.
Sing Your Heart Out
Nothing beats karaoke as a party activity that will get everyone on their feet. Even if you are not a good singer, you can have a lot of fun watching others sing their favorite tunes against a musical track.
If you want the full experience, there are many party companies that rent out karaoke machines for you to use. They usually come with pre-loaded tracks and a screen on the karaoke machine, so you can plug it in anywhere
You can also buy a karaoke microphone and plug it in. You can use the television or computer screen to play YouTube tracks that have lyrics displayed on the screen.
Make a Charcuterie Board
Want a creative way to display your favorite cheeses and meats? When it comes to event planning, you can make a charcuterie board that all of your guests can snack on together.
If you want to go crazy, you can host a charcuterie-themed party. Everyone can bring their favorite snacks on a custom charcuterie board and you will not have to worry about providing food.
Create a Custom Cocktail
Bring your girl’s night in up to the next level by including booze. Wine is a staple, but if you want to be more creative, you can invent a custom cocktail with some of your favorite ingredients.
If you already have a party theme, that is a great place to start when choosing what type of cocktail you want to have. For people with varied tastes, you can make two or three.
Do Face Masks
You can always stick with one of the original girls’ night ideas, and that is doing face masks and having a spa night. You can buy pre-made face masks at the store which contain ingredients to nourish your skin.
To have a more inventive night, you can try making your own face masks. Natural ingredients such as oatmeal and coffee grounds will help to exfoliate your skin and you will not have to worry about allergies or skin irritation.
Try a Paint Party
You do not have to be a professional artist to make a beautiful piece of art. In fact, there are many instructional kits you can buy that will give you step-by-step instructions for painting at home.
If you want to take it further, you can host a paint and sip at home for your closest girlfriends. You can have a live instructor through video streaming technology, so everyone will be able to follow along with the painting tutorial.
To bring it up a notch, grab your favorite wine and indulge during the painting party. You can buy a few varieties so that everyone has a type of wine that they enjoy.
Play Some Fun Games
To break up the monotony of watching movies, try gathering some fun games to enjoy. If you have a lot of people, you can split into smaller groups so that it does not take as long.
Card games such as Cards Against Humanity and Red Flag are perfect options for a girl’s night in. They will have you in stitches with funny prompts and inappropriate humor.
If your friends love board games, then you can make it into a full-on game night. Have everyone bring their favorite board game and try your hand at several different types of games.
