Family and friends are very important to me. That’s why I always make sure to make time for everybody to catch up or do something fun. Sometimes it’s hard when your schedules are totally different but when something is important, you can always make time. One thing I like to do (but don’t do enough) is have a girls night in with my friends. In this post I share some tips to organize something like his so you can have the best cozy night!
⌇ INVITATIONS ⌇
For a girls night in you’ll definitely need to have a couple of friends to celebrate with. Of course you can just send a simple message through WhatsApp, but it’s way more fun to send a ‘real’ card. Since it can be very hard to find the perfect card, I used Greetz to design my very own card. On the card I use these different cacti with pastel colored background, which I found on Pinterest, and added the text later. Through the website from Greetz you can either send the card immediately to your friends or just deliver them to your house, write the details on the back and then send them to your friends. 💌 This makes it so easy to invite your friends in a cute and personal way.
⌇ DECOR ⌇
Some people might think some decor pieces are too much for a girls night in, but it just completes the full experience. It doesn’t need to take a lot of time or cost a lot of money to decorate your girls night in. Most of the time I just save some awesome and free printables on my Pinterest. That’s where I also found these cute popcorn boxes! You just cut them out, glue them together and add the popcorn!
⌇ FOOD ⌇
Of course food and drinks are always very important, especially on a night in with your friends. Since I don’t really drink alcoholic drinks, I think for a girls night in the mocktails I made in a previous blog post are perfect. They are kind of like lemonade but in a fancier way. When it comes to snacks my friends and I always like to have mini pizzas. You can buy these in store also make them yourself, like this. And of course something like popcorn 🍿 or chocolate bars 🍫 are a must.
⌇ MOVIES & SERIES ⌇
Something that a girls night in can’t go without, it is definitely a good movie or series to watch. Since I have watched a lot of them, I do have a couple of suggestions. During the girls night in you can watch…
… Life Unexpected. This series is about Lux, who starts looking for her biological parents. Her dad didn’t know his high school girlfriend even had a baby. She gave Lux up for adoption but she never was adopted. A judge grants them full custody of Lux and they want to make every right. It has two seasons so enough to watch on a girls night in!
… Friends. Do I even have to say more? Friends is such a classic series, which everyone should have seen at least once in their life. Anyways, it’s all about six friends: Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Monica and Phoebe. They live in New York and experience the funniest and very recognizable things. And like the title of the series, great to watch with your friends.
… Mamma Mia. One of my favorite movies to watch, is definitely Mamma Mia. I know all of the songs (because Abba music is the best) and I almost know all of the words (yes, I’ve seen it that many times). If you have friends that like to sing along with a movie, you must watch this one. 🎶
These were all of the tips I wanted to share to organize the most fun and cozy girls night in with your friends! To get yourself completely in the mood to organize something like this, definitely listen to this song. It’s a real throwback but I just love to listen to it haha. Have you ever had a girls night in? What’s your favorite way to catch up with your friends?
