Sorry fellas, but this party post is definitely geared towards the ladies. 😉
One of my favorite types of events to host are girls’ nights. They are so laid back and fun, seriously nothing beats a night with the girls! It wouldn’t be a party though without drinks, food and some atmosphere 😉
For a night with the ladies my go to beverage is always wine. I usually buy a bottle of wine, I prefer Chardonnay or Reisling, or whip up a sangria to share. I also encourage people coming to bring a bottle of wine, that way there is plenty to go around 😉 Also make sure to have water or another drink on hand for any of your friends that may not be up for drinking a lot.
What better food to go with wine than some cheese! My favorite is sharp white cheddar with wheat thins, but it’s a real treat whenever anyone brings some brie or a different type of cheese. Again, let people bring things! It’s a great way to try new things or add some diversity to your gathering! And no ladies’ night would be complete without CHOCOLATE! I always try to make brownies or cookies to have in addition to some sort of chocolate bars. If I really feel like going all out I’ll sometimes make chocolate covered strawberries, which are always a hit.
Since most of the time girls’ night involves sitting around in my living room and chatting I love to set up candles on my large fireplace and lighting them to create some ambiance. Plus, they make my house smell great which is always a plus. I also try to make sure my house is clean when I have other ladies over, you never know when someone’s going to want to see how you decorated your bedroom.
Having a movie to watch or a game to play is always a great plan when you invite people over, but if your friends are anything like mine you wont need them. Usually we can get together and talk for hours without any sort of game or movie. 😉
