As much as I love to go out, planning a girls night in is always my favorite. Sometimes it feels good to be able to catch up with my girlfriends when I haven't seen them in a while. Our girls night in allows us to share stories without the chaos of a noisy restaurant or venue.
Since our schedules are always a little hectic, I like to plan girls nights in advance. Not only does this give everyone time to mark it on the calendar, it also allows for prep time to make the night a bit more festive. From activities and movies to snacks and choosing the right wine, these are my tips for planning the perfect Girls Night In!
1 – Prep your space
Before your friends come over, do a little prep work to make the space inviting. Fresh flowers, candles, and a bit of holiday decor are simple touches that always make an impact. Also, be sure to tidy up your space a bit and fluff the pillows!
2 – Start with wine
When my girlfriends and I get together, we always bring wine. If you’re the host, be sure to keep a couple extra bottles on hand. If you’re the guest, bring a bottle with you & a Wine-to-go. These 2 unbreakable tritan plastic wine glasses and ice bag are not only the perfect gift but will also be useful during the night!
3 – Serve a variety of snacks
Rather than having a sit down dinner, I’ve found my girlfriends and I love snacking when we get together. I love setting out a mix of salty and sweet bites for the night. Snacks are easy and require little effort, plus your friends will always appreciate it!
4 – Choose a Netflix show before your friends arrive
I usually turn on a comedy or chick-flick series we’ve all seen before, so there’s background noise when my friends arrive. Unless we dedicate the night to watching a movie, I like to have a familiar show we can tune in and out of while we chat and catch up.
5 – Keep some games on hand
While board games can sound a little cheesy sometimes, my friends and I love playing THE DROP IT Party Mix Wine Duo game. Add a little wine and the competition gets fierce.
6 – Include a spa treatment
Treat your girlfriends to a refreshing face mask. Sheet masks are so easy to use, affordable, and they don’t require water. Everyone looks ridiculous in a face mask so it’s always a good laugh.
7 – Keep lots of blankets on hand
I’m always cold, so I love keeping a basket of blankets next to the couch in case my friends get cold too! It keeps everyone happy and comfortable!
