Girls just wanna have fun! There’s nothing quite like taking a night off and spending it catching up with all your closest girlfriends. The best part of a girls’ night in is showing off your cute creative flair, and that starts with cocktails!
The cocktails, of course, need to be extra special. Something new is always fun to try and to talk about. Try the superchic Stirrings® French 75 or a Spicy Sriracha Margarita. Since sriracha sauce is all the rage this season, it will be the perfect choice to kick up a typical margarita drink.
Keep things fun, simple and grown up by adding a bit of sophistication to the classic pizza and salad entree. Try a fresh fig, prosciutto and goat cheese pizza served with fresh green bean, arugula and fresh basil balsamic salad. A light, easy, and delicious menu will leave plenty of room for dessert. What girls’ night in would be complete without an array of chocolate goodies? Ask guests to bring their favorite chocolate indulgence to share.
o get everyone in the spirit, give each guest a little girly flare as she arrives. Feather boas, tiaras, and beads are inexpensive and fun. You’ll be amazed how a prop instantly elevates the mood of the party.
Since it can always turn into an unexpected night, choose opposing elements to decorate, like animal prints with hot pink accents. Use a hot pink runner for the table. If you’re on a budget, wrapping paper can double as a runner, with animal print placemats and napkins.
For centerpieces, roll high fashion magazines into glass vases and fill with flowers (put another vase within the vase if you add water). You can even use the magazine covers to line food and drink trays. Fill martini glasses with water and floating candles, and hang small glass chandelier pieces from each glass. Place these super-cool ornaments around the house.
