While you may be too old to play with each other’s hair (OK maybe you aren’t), that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun of braiding. Prep some dough and have the girls swing by to braid and knead pretzel or bread dough.
Put your waistline woes to the side for an evening and indulge with some ladies you love. For your next girls' night in, grab some dessert wine and pair it with a ton of tasty chocolate. To get a real "tasting" experience, have each of your girls bring a truffle flight by Godiva to get a wide range of flavors and intensity.
If you want to go shopping with your girls but don’t feel like leaving your living room, try hosting a lovely shopping experience at home. This isn’t your mother’s Tupperware party, so pull together a tasty event with a "party consultant" to host an event at your home. Companies like Tastefully Simple help you not only showcase a ton of fun products, but they also bring samples for you to nosh on and discuss with friends.
Since idle hands are the devil’s playground and things can get wild when you and your girls are scheming, try hosting a BYOB craft night. You and your girls can help each other get ready for the next holiday, prep for an important event, or simply tackle some kitchen projects you’ve been putting off.
All girls need to blow off a little steam, so if things have been particularly dramatic for you and the girls in your life, invite them over for a night of drinking and complaining. Have each of your girlfriends bring their favorite bottle of wine, like Fancy Pants, or their favorite mixer like Altar Herbal Martini for a tasty, rage-releasing night.
The best part about baking delicious sweet treats with your friends is the camaraderie around the kitchen counter. Sugar cookies are particularly great to make, since friends can make their own batch at home to bring. They are great for any season and you can spend hours chatting, shaping, and decorating your cookies among friends and spirits.
You don’t have to put your heels in a circle and dance in a club. Rave right in your living room with a fun dance party. Deck out the area in glow-in-the-dark décor and neon foods and pick an amazing playlist.
We all loved doing sleepovers as little girls, but oftentimes adult life doesn’t allow us to have our friends for the whole weekend. Invite the girls over for a late-night "brinner" (the combination of breakfast and dinner) and tell them to arrive in their PJs. You can serve them the adult versions of their kid favorite breakfasts while sipping on breakfast cocktails like mimosas and Bloody Marys.
Ladies cannot get enough of their chick flicks, but if you and your girls are chicks who dig food and flicks, try to watch some food-focused rom-coms. Offer your girls gourmet popcorn and kick back.
