Have you ever wanted to revel in your childhood slumber parties with the girls, but as an adult? Well, now you can! Pajama parties are all the rage these days, and there’s no better place to have one than in the comfort of your own home.
So round up your best gal pals and get ready for a night filled with good memories, drinks, and fun! Below are some of the best tips to help you get your party started on the right foot.
Pack a Comfy Outfit
The most important part of any pajama party is, of course, the pajamas! So make sure to pack a comfy outfit that you can lounge around in all night. If you want to get really into the theme, you can even wear your favorite childhood pair of jammies.
Don’t forget to also pack essentials like a toothbrush and toothpaste, face wash, deodorant, and any other toiletries you might need for the night.
Prep the Snacks
No pajama party is complete without some snacks to nibble on throughout the night. So raid your pantry and fridge and put together a spread of all your favorite munchies. For a more adult way of handling the midnight snack urge, consider preparing some small bites like mini quiches or canapés.
Don’t forget the drinks! Whether you and your girlfriends prefer wine, cocktails, or just some good ol’ fashioned beer, make sure to have enough for everyone to enjoy. The Cosmopolitan Drink is a great option for your girls’ party, since it’s classy, light, and refreshing! Trying to stay up all night, try an espresso martini. Remember to follow the safe drinking guidelines to help make the night go off without a hitch.
Create a Playlist
What’s a party without some tunes? Create a playlist beforehand of all your favorite jams to get the party started. If you’re having trouble coming up with songs, ask your friends for suggestions.
Then, once the music is playing, let loose and have some fun! You can even do a karaoke night, which can help you and your friends bring out your inner Celine Dion. Surprisingly, there’s also evidence that shows karaoke is good for the heart and mental health!
Break out the Board Games
No sleepover is complete without a few rounds of classic board games. So dust off your old Monopoly set or grab a new game like Cards Against Humanity or What Do You Meme?
Not only are board games a ton of fun, but they can also help you bond with your friends. If you’re feeling really competitive, you can even make things interesting by turning it into a betting game. The loser buys or makes the drinks for the rest of the night!
Share Stories and Secrets
One of the best parts about sleepovers is being able to stay up all night talking with your girlfriends. So take advantage of this time and catch up with each other. You can even share some embarrassing stories or secrets that you’ve been wanting to get off your chest.
Just remember to be respectful of your friend’s secrets and never repeat anything that’s been said in confidence. What happens at the pajama party, stays at the pajama party!
Plan Some Fun Activities
Of course, you don’t want to spend the entire night just sitting around and chatting. So plan out some fun activities that everyone can enjoy. For example, you can have a movie night, plan on doing each other’s nails or hair, or even have a DIY spa night. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and have fun with it!
When you plan your pajama night, keep these tips in mind to help you throw the best party possible. And most importantly, don’t forget to relax, let loose, and have a good time with your girlfriends!
