Hosting a Girls Night In
With the weather getting warmer, turn your backyard into a Girls Night In. Mamas need quality time with their girlfriends, but sometimes the best patio for drinks and conversation is the one outside your back door. With a short shopping list, you can put together a fun night for the girls without a lot of time or stress. While you’re planning, let your girls know they’re invited to something a little sweeter than a typical Saturday night. Don’t just text your friends — try an option like Paperless Post to put together a quick, eco-friendly invitation.
No one can argue with a fantastic cocktail recipe, but some nights you and your guests might prefer alcohol-free drinks. Summer’s an ideal time for mocktails — an abundance of fresh, seasonal fruit and warm evenings practically beg you to sip on a cool, fruity beverage. Try using the delicious Trop50 juices in your mocktails. With fifty percent less sugar that regular juices, Trop50 mocktails mean less calories consumed and no sugar hangover in the morning! Trop50 makes orange juice, of course, but there are 10 varieties of juice just waiting to mix with ice, soda water and all sorts of summer ingredients — we think the Raspberry Acai would be a fabulous mocktail base.
Girls Night In Decorations
Transform your backyard from kiddie camp to summer soiree with a few decorations. Nothing makes a night in feel like a special occasion like pretty lighting. The Lanterns with Ribbon are whimsical — and reusable. Play off the ribbons in the lanterns with a Pretty Party Backdrop — even the most challenged DIY-er can tackle this project while waiting for her pedicure to dry.
Girls Night In Festive Treats
Popsicles scream summer, but serving them on warm nights is a hostess’s nightmare. Try Popsicle Brownies instead — darling desserts that won’t melt all over your favorite serving dish. For all your treats that aren’t on a stick, pick up a Wooden Fork as a chic alternative to the typical plastic party wear (Etsy, $10).
Fortune cookie fun
Not that your girlfriends are expecting party favors, but a bowl of gorgeous, handmade fortune cookies doubles as a centerpiece and a conversation starter. The Vintage Print Fortune Cookie Favors can be made with messages you choose (Etsy, $1). Add lines from your favorite rom-coms, dance songs or old 80s movies, and you and your friends will be giggling all night.
Do you prefer to hang out with your girlfriends at home or out on the town?
