Girls Night In – The Perfect Recipe

Now every girl can agree to this that once in a while you need a good girls night in, whether its alcohol and giggles or hot chocs with a classic chick flick. I personally would have one every weekend if I could! I’ve clubbed together a list of things to equal the perfect (in my opinion) girls night in.

Pick a date and send out the invites.

Now, I’m not saying you have to make solid postcard invites if you don’t want to. Just drop your friends a text or make a group chat to arrange a date, get one set and make sure it’s in everyone’s diaries.

List of Movies

Gather everyone’s suggestions for the types of movies you want to watch, whether its a typical chick flick movie list (like the 101 ideas I listed here). Or if your girls night is going to be themed or based on the season; Halloween = scary movies etc.

Shopping List

Make a list of all the drinks and snacks you might want at your girls night. This could be hot chocolate or alcohol (if you’re above legal age and drinking responsibly), chocolate, sweets, popcorn or crisps. Make sure there’s something for everyone.

Get Cosy

Gather all the blankets, cushions and duvets between you all. The more the merrier (applies to comforts too!).


Unless you want just a chill girls night, binge-watching films or just having a chin-wag, you can also write a list of games to play (can be drinking or non-drinking!).

Final Details

Pick a room and decorate (if you want to). I go with bunting, candles, fairy lights normally, again unless it’s themed. I love creating a cosy and comfortable atmosphere for my girls to fully relax into so we can all unwind together.

Don’t forget to pick your outfit!

Any favourite Comfies or PJ’s or matching if you want to go that far?

Hope you’re all staying safe!

  1. Cute post! I can’t remember the last time I had a girls night in – I didn’t really have any girl mates up until last year! But we’re definitely all arranging a get-together after this is over 🙂

  2. OMG this is perfect! I started renting a flat at the start of lockdown so haven’t been able to move in properly yet. When I do, and when it is safe to have friends over, I am 100% doing this!
