If you’re going to host any party, it’s best you go all out! Set the tone with invitations to get your girls excited. You can choose to go old-school by posting pretty hand-written invitations or, if you’d prefer, an e-vite works just as well. Just make sure to put a great deal of effort into them and include all the necessary details – from what to bring and what to wear to the time, date and location.
All about the bass
No girls’ night is complete without a top-notch soundtrack. In this case, you’re going to want to set the mood with girl jams from T-Swift to Selena Gomez, and of course, the ever flawless Beyoncé. It’s always fun to play music from the past and sing at the top of your lungs to the Spice Girls, right? Ask your gals to each send three songs for your playlist so that everyone has their few seconds of fame when their favourite tune comes on.
Decorations are key, so you’ll want to invest in balloons, heart shaped sweets, pretty pink, red and white table decor. Don’t be shy to throw a little DIY into the mix. Your friends will definitely appreciate the extra efffort, especially if there are bits and pieces they can take home with them.
An all-girl party means lots of sugar! Chocolate, cookies, cake – it’s all necessary. Impress your friends with colourful decadent desserts served on pretty pink plates and sprinkle some glitter around the edges to add some extra pizazz.
Now it’s time to go wild. Make your cocktails look fun and fabulous with red cherries, whipped cream and some cute, little umbrellas.
Gifts for the girls
Make your friends feel special by sending them home with a small personal gift. It can be absolutely anything. If you feel like getting creative, make a DIY bracelet for all your friends to show how much they mean to you.
Now that you’re set for the party, it’s up to you and your gals to make the most of it. Spend this day laughing with your besties and creating special moments you’ll never forget.
