Planning a girls’ night in? These are some ideas to do with your girlfriends. Mix and match a few ideas into one carefree evening with your ladies!
For larger groups:
1. Themed pot lucks
For example, everyone brings: something red, a dessert, an appetizer, some kind of food that starts with a <you pick the letter>, etc.
2. Game night
Board games, Madlibs (check out naughty variations), or nonboard interpersonal games like “psychiatrist”, “mafia”, and “murder”. Or even this: Everyone pick a *choice* word or phrase, and each get a sheet of paper. The best words are inside jokes or other words meaningful to your group in some other way. Each person writes a sentence (for best results, write about mutual friends/romantic partners) with their respective word, and passes their sheet of paper around so that everyone writes sentences with their word on each paper. Read each sheet aloud when you’re finished. Hilarious!
3. Book club
If you can organize this with a group, it’ll be good times. Foster intellectual growth in yourself and in your friend group, and have a group of people who, literally, are on the same page as you with regard to at least one area of your life!
4. Ice cream sundae party
Everyone bring their favorite topping!
For any size group:
5. Slide show of old pictures
Warn the neighbors about possible outbursts of screeching, hooting, and laughter.
Nobody to judge, no insecurities. Just sit back and relaaaax.
7. Dinner and a movie
Go out, cook a meal together, order in, rent or visit a theatre – mix it up to suit your mood!
8. Go for a brisk walk
Meander through a park if the weather permits (I’m envisioning fall leaves and a the dry, cool air of a crisp fall evening at dusk), or to a vista where you can watch the sunset.
9. Wine & cheese
10. Pampering spa night
Everyone brings spa treatment items such as facial masks, cooling cucumber eye patches, parrafin treatment, manicure supplies, etc.
11. Baking extravaganza
Bake a fabulous cake, or some other creation! If you’re a spaz in the kitchen, consider inviting your culinarily inclined girlfriends…and pick a recipe that seems too complicated to make by yourself! Teamwork!
Girls just wanna have fun!
