Plan Fun Activities
The activities are what make a girls night in extra special. Plan a variety of games, crafts, pampering activities and entertainment to keep the night flowing with fun. Consider these ideas when brainstorming the itinerary:
A movie marathon is a classic girls night activity. Let guests vote on feel-good chick flicks and romantic comedies to watch. Don’t forget the tissues!
Set out nail polish, makeup, hair products and accessories for DIY makeovers. Give each other manicures, practice new hairstyles and test makeup looks. Use it as an excuse to pamper yourselves!
From silly sleepover games like Truth or Dare to trendy new games you can buy or print out, there are tons of fun options! Do a Google search to find lists of games suited for a girls night.
Get creative with crafts like making vision boards, jewelry, pillows, cards or customized tumblers. Browse Pinterest or Etsy for cute DIY project ideas you can do together.
Belt out your favorite tunes! Download karaoke versions of popular songs. Break out hairbrushes as microphones for a giggle-filled sing-along.
Set up a DIY photo booth station with fun props like boas, silly glasses and signs. Snap lots of pics to remember the night!
Mix and match activities to design a schedule that fits the interests of you and your friends. And don’t over-plan ? be sure to leave time for chatting and bonding too!

Provide Yummy Bites and Beverages
Of course, no girls night in is complete without tasty treats and sips! When prepping the food and drinks menu, opt for easy crowd-pleasing bites and cocktails that can be premade or whipped up quickly.
- Charcuterie grazing board with cheeses, meats, nuts, fruit
- Bruchetta or flatbread bites
- Quesadillas or pizza bites
- Chips and guacamole or hummus
- Veggies and ranch dip
- Popcorn bar with fun toppings
- Fondue station
- Make-your-own tacos or sliders
- Cupcakes, cookies, brownies or other sweet treats

- Fizzy juices, lemonade, teas
- Mason jar infused waters
Set everything up buffet-style so guests can nibble and sip throughout the night. Use colorful dishes and fun glassware to take it up a notch. Stock up on napkins and pour drinks into plastic cups or stemless glasses to prevent spills during activities.
Make a Playlist
What’s a party without music? Create a girls night soundtrack filled with songs that will get the good vibes going. Some playlist ideas:
- Throwback jams from high school or college days
- Chart-topping hits and dance tracks
- Empowering female anthems
- Sentimental and bonding tunes
- Guilty pleasure songs everyone knows the words to
Make it collaborative by asking guests to add their song suggestions. Hook up the speakers, connect a streaming music service like Spotify and let the tunes flow all night!
Capture Lots of Photos
When the night winds down, you’ll want to remember all the fun you had. Take lots of pics together throughout the evening to memorialize the experience and laugh about later.
Stage some posed photos in your party outfits and decor before things get too messy! Capture candid moments during activities, crafts and dance parties. Ask a friend to be the official event photographer to snap photos while you mingle.
Towards the end of the night, gather everyone together for a group shot. Afterwards, share all the photos on social media or a shared online album so everyone can relive the memories.
Have a Blast!
There you have it…everything you need to throw a spectacular girls night in bash! The most important part? Let loose, be silly, get a little wild and really cherish the quality time with your closest girlfriends.
Dance like nobody’s watching, laugh until your stomach hurts, and make memories to last a lifetime. Stay up way too late talking about anything and everything.
Have an absolute blast celebrating your friendship! Don’t forget to schedule the next girls night date before the end of the evening.
