I love a good girls night… A night to catch up, have some cocktails, some laughs and enjoy some time with good friends! I also love the planning that goes into these “events”. I think I missed my calling as an event planner, so I get to play party planner when I put these nights together!
When I throw parties I always like to have something unexpected for my guests. I just think its so fun! For holiday parties I have hired Christmas Carolers and Caricature Artists to draw self portraits! For one of my girls nights I offered mini reflexology sessions, which the girls really loved. You could also follow the same theme with a message therapist (think shopping mall massage chair)!
And if you want to keep it more simple, think of a theme… Like maybe have a dessert party or a cookie swap! Either way, keep it pretty! I put fresh flowers all over the house, lay out pretty napkins and set up a nice bar for my guests.
The last girl’s night I hosted, I ordered these amazing “adult” cake pops for all my girls to try! I arranged them on a cupcake tower and they were delicious! The cocktail cake pops come in three flavors: Pink Champagne, Strawberry Margarita, and Mimosa! Tip: order ahead to account for shipping time and make sure to order extra because they go fast!
I am super lucky that my husband likes to do the food shopping… or likes the few hours that it takes him out of the house on a Saturday afternoon! Either way, I’ll take it! I actually really dislike grocery shopping and I also dread making the list every week. So, when I got a flyer in the mail, with a coupon for three free meals, to try Hello Fresh… I jumped on it!
Hello Fresh creates all the healthy recipes, buys all the ingredients and then ships a box weekly right to your door! You even have choices. You can choose either a vegetarian box or a classic food box, and you can decide whether you want to feed two people or four people. I went with the classic box for two, and for $69 a week I get three full meals of my choice for two people. Some might think this is expensive, but it breaks down to basically $11/person per meal and everything is all organized for you which equals a huge time saver!
This was our first delivery and everything was delicious!
