Throwing a memorable slumber party for your girlfriends is about details and imagination. With a few unique touches, you can turn an average slumber party into the best bash of the year. Clever and unexpected decorations, invitations and games, along with a fun atmosphere, will help you and your friends to have the best sleepover ever.
Things You'll Need
- Sheet of blank stickers
- Lip gloss
- Glow-in-the-dark star stickers
- Silly straws
Create surprising invitations. Get a sheet of blank stickers and write the date and location of your slumber party on them. Decorate the stickers with markers. Buy several tubes of lip gloss at your local pharmacy and place a sticker on each tube. Pass them out to your friends as invitations to the party.
Decorate your house for the slumber party. Designate a space for the slumber party. Create the look of a large bed on the floor by arranging several pillows, teddy bears, mats and blankets. Put glow-in-the-dark star stickers on the ceiling for a cool nighttime sky look. Scatter inflated balloons around the room to give it a festive appearance.
Fill several take-home bags with party favors. Include items like slipper socks, candy, eye masks, small alarm clocks, stickers and small bottles of lotion or body wash.
Prepare the food -- an essential item at any party. Take your guests' diet needs into consideration. Accommodate every palate by serving hors d'oeuvres. Offer spicy and mild dishes with vegetarian and meat options. Serve a fun, mixed beverage -- such as virgin Shirley Temples or piña coladas -- and use colorful straws.
Choose three to five games to play at the party and do the set-up before your guests arrive. Have an agenda for the night, but be flexible -- some games might be more popular than others. Choose a variety of games and take your guests' interests and abilities into consideration. Sports might be popular with some of your guests, but others might prefer board games or puzzles.
Include all of your guests in the fun. As a host, your duty is to manage the party and ensure everyone is having a good time. Keep an eye on your guests. If someone seems shy, do your best to draw her into the conversation or the game.
