How to Host the Perfect Adult Slumber Party

Tired of crazy girls’ nights out with the added cost of surcharged Übers, overpriced cocktails… not to mention hangovers and blistered heels? I think we can all agree that a quality girl’s night in is long overdue.

We’ve put together a list of décor, entertainment, treats and cocktail ideas so you can host the perfect adult slumber party for you and your best girlfriends! 

Décor

When it comes to hosting the perfect slumber party, themes and decorations are essential. For this year, two of the top trends include glittered…everything and the “indoor campout”.

The glitter theme is super easy and can be applied to almost anything. All you need is glitter in the colour(s) of your choice and some good old-fashioned glue.

Suggestions of items to “glitz”:

  • Balloons
  • Cups/Wine Glasses (glass or plastic)
  • Plates, Cutlery handles
  • Yourselves. Have fun with it!    

Kim Kardashian recently had a 'Troop Beverly Hills'-Themed Baby Shower. The overall concept remained simple with matching pjs, tipis, hot chocolate, and chocolate mints.
