At Let’s Have A Bash, we know that spending quality time with your closest friends is essential! We’re here to help you create unforgettable moments right in the comfort of your own home. You’ve been out all day or all week. Why spend $50 dollars on dinner and drinks, when you can get the girls in their favorite comfy clothes on the couch for the night?!
Let’s talk about our top tips and ideas for hosting the ultimate Girls’ Night In. Whether it’s a low-key movie night or spa-themed, we’ve got you covered!
Alright, you’ve set the date and sent invites to the group chat. If you’re really jazzed, you wrote handwritten notes to each of the girls as your invitation! Now, it’s time to make this night different from the weekly tune-ins for the next episode of the Bachelor! Here’s what you need to zero in on:
Plan a Theme
Choose a theme that suits your group’s interests. You may have already thought of this, but if not, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Movie Marathon: Select a series of chick flicks or your favorite films and prepare some popcorn, candy, and drinks for a cinematic experience. Ask your friends if the vibe is more rom-com or throwback 80s movies.
Renaissance Party: Tell everyone to dress as their favorite Beyonce song! The winner is the one that everyone can easily guess the song based on the outfit.
Spa Night: Treat yourselves to DIY facials, mani-pedis, and aromatherapy. Stock up on face masks, essential oils, and soothing music.
Potluck Dinner: Invite everyone to bring a dish or drink, potluck-style, for a diverse and delicious feast.
Craft Night: Get creative with a craft project like DIY home décor, painting, or jewelry making.
Create a Cozy Atmosphere
Transform your home into a welcoming haven for relaxation and fun. If you’re the friend that likes to keep things uber neat and tidy, consider borrowing another friend’s living room for this one. We don’t need a freak out over popcorn and wine on your favorite rug!
Dim the lights, scatter some scented candles or fairy lights, and set up a cozy seating area with cushions and blankets. You know how you set a vibe for your special someone on date night? Do that! The girls deserve all the works too!
Food and Drinks
Food is a big part of any gathering, and Girls’ Night In is no exception. Prepare a menu that caters to everyone’s tastes. Consider adding a mix of favorites and new eats. Whether it’s a gourmet spread or finger foods and appetizers, a good mix of options can carry a 3-4 hour gathering. Don’t forget to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies! Signature cocktails/mocktails, wine, or a variety of non-alcoholic beverages will add to the fun too.
We cannot send our friends home without a little something to remember the night! Goodie bags filled with small treats, personalized notes, or a memento from the evening can be a delightful touch. Nights like this should be remembered on and off socials.
Remember, the most important thing is to relax, enjoy the company of your friends, and cherish the moments you create together. Girls’ Night In is all about bonding, laughter, and creating memories.
We hope this guide helps you plan the ultimate evening of fun and friendship. If you have any questions or need assistance with planning your next event, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Let’s Have A Bash. Happy hosting!
