“girl’s night in”

So we watched “Bridesmaids” again this weekend when my daughter was home for the weekend… oh my!  Then I saw this blog post on my Pinterest page this morning from a fun site; “Pizzazzerie“.  That got my creative planning juices going.  “Girl’s Night In”.  OMGosh… what a fun idea!!  That is SO going on my bucket list (that I am currently “drafting”.  More on that later!!)

“If you laugh really loud, talk spontaneously and you don’t care what your face looks like… You’re probably with your real friends.”  – unknown

It’s time to invite the girlfriends over and host a girl’s night in! I’m sharing 10 ways to entertain the gals in style. From the perfect movies to the perfect food, you won’t ever regret “girl-time”. I love designing parties around colors so this one was naturally PINK!

1. THE INVITATION – I am head-over-heels in LOVE with Polka Dot Design’s new glitter line! Seriously it is so cute. I already ordered address labels. Customize this one for the perfect Girl’s Night in Party! This helped set my color scheme of pink + gold!

2. NAIL POLISH – Pick up some fun nail polish colors for manicures! I love Essie’s All Tied Up + Essie’s Golden Nuggets

3. CUPCAKE TIME – Making cupcakes or other sweet dessert is a total must for a successful girl’s night in! Add some pizzazz with gold disco dust or gold luster dust for some pretty shine!

4. TASSEL GARLAND – I have a turquoise version of this garland in my office. Pick it up in pink + gold for your Girl’s Night In! Hang it from the doorway, in the dining room, the mantle, or wherever else you’re celebrating with the gals! Find this one at The Flair Exchange!

5. SIGNATURE COCKTAIL – Weddings aren’t the only events that call for a signature cocktail! I love this Pink Lemonade Cocktail on Somewhere Splendid!

6. DECORATE – Add a framed print to your coffee table or dining room table! I love this one! Find the sign here!

7. MOVIE TIME – While the cupcakes are cooling and nails are drying, turn on some fave flicks like Bridesmaids or Sixteen Candles!

8. PHOTO STRIP FUN – I love this app – Pocketbooth – that lets you create photo strips and even has a print-and-mail function! Your girlfriends will love documenting the fun night!

9. TABLE DECOR – A pink tablecloth and striped runner will add lots of pretty flair for your dinner table! Or keep it casual and lounge on the couch for dinner but either way, add some pops of color! {Tablescape via 100 Layer Cake}

10. FAVORS – My favorite part of EVERY party! Girl’s Night In favors can be anything from a cute nail polish, a bag of sweet treats, or a grab bag of cute craft supplies (think gold glitter and pink ribbon!).

live happy… laugh, love, dream, create

  1. We just did a girls night in for our August Event… we made 2 rules. No one can make anything – everything has to be store bought (Which is harder than what it seems!!!) and we pick from the chick flicks we already own. It was a huge hit, and it was nice to just relax with the girls! 🙂

      1. Oh yeah totally! We indulged in some wine as we couldn’t make anything… but a drink would be great, and highly recommended. We do an event a month, this time around we kept it just the 4 of us who run our blog. Last month we did a fake Bachelorette party! Then we invited other gals, invites, drinks, the whole works. We had about 16 then 🙂
