How To Throw A Great Girls’ Night In
As you get older, it’s increasingly more difficult to find time to spend with your girl friends, which means that when you have time to spend together, you need to make the most of it. Here are some tips that will help you throw the perfect girls’ night in.
Decorate Your Home
Nobody’s saying that you need to put up banners or repaint your skirting boards just to impress your pals, but it is a nice idea to make sure that your home looks good. Make sure that clutter has been put away and that your floors have been swept – and then it’s time to go a little wild. Have fun with your decor – go for rose-gold cups, throw confetti on the table, put up a banner if you’re celebrating a birthday. If you’re more low-key, buy a couple of bunches of fresh flowers.
When you’re hanging out with your favourite people, let’s face it: there’s no need to stand on occasion. Make sure that your friends know that the dress code is casual, and that they should feel free to bring their favourite sweatpants or PJs with them. There’s nothing in the world that feels better than wearing your most comfortable clothes and curling up on your soft sofas underneath blankets to discuss what’s been going on in your lives lately.
Remember that not everybody drinks, especially as you get older – someone may be nursing or newly pregnant, someone else might be driving home, someone else might have given up drinking for health reasons. It’s a sensitive subject, though, so make sure that there are soft drinks like fresh lemonade available so that your pals can go for those instead of the booze, no questions asked. For those who are drinking, try out a margarita recipe or maybe even make mojitos with fresh mint leaves.
Choose Your Nibbles
When you’re having a girls’ night in, it’s a good idea to provide a range of snacks, from hummus and veggies to pizza, so that everyone can find something that they’re happy with. You could even do a potluck and ask everyone to bring their favourite snack so that you can all share. Why not try out something fun that you haven’t had in a while? S’mores are always an excellent choice.
Bring The Beauty
Finally, there is no better time than when you’re hanging out with your best girl friends to try out the latest trends. It can be hard to figure out what’s up with makeup and fashion trends when you don’t have much time, so why don’t you all bring something that you want to try out so you can pool your resources and expertise? Whether you want advice on the glass skincare routine or you haven’t figured out how to put on false lashes, you’ll be able to talk it out with your best friends – and have a lot of laughs on the way.
Spending time with your favourite girls is something to celebrate – all you need to do is provide a few tools and you’ll have the best night ever.
