Girl’s nights are a welcome paradise – no matter how much we love the men in our lives, it’s so relaxing to spend a night in with your favorite ladies, chatting about the guys, your jobs, and enjoying a few wine spritzers (or martinis). For us, the three essentials to a girl’s night are Concession Stand Candy
, chick flicks, and at-home manicures!
Concession Stand Candy
We love concession stand candy because of its fun factor – what candy is more creative than Gummy Hamburgers, Tootsie Frooties, and Cotton Candy Lollipops? Be sure to have a few bags on hand, and put them in small bowls for all of the girls. Pair the yummy candy with equally yummy fruit drinks and a few trays of pizza.
We suggest having three chick flicks on hand for a girl’s night. Start with an 80’s chick flick like Sixteen Candles to set the stage for a fun girl’s night, and then move into a drama like Under The Tuscan Sun or Eat, Pray, Love. Then, top off the evening with a fun, light chick flick like Confessions of a Shopaholic or The Proposal. Ask each of your guests to bring a few chick flicks with them so you can have quite a variety to choose from!
Get all the girls together in pairs – one person to do the manicure, and then they’ll switch places. First, each girl should take off her existing nail polish using a cotton ball. Then, shape nails using a nail file. Next, have each girl soak their nails in a bowl of soapy water for a few minutes – whichever favorite, relaxing soap you’d like! Apply lotion to your hands, and then exfoliate your hands using a body scrub. Dry hands and apply body butter to the hands, and then polish those nails!
Having a girl’s night at least once every two months is a must for your calendar. We all lead busy lives, so take a break and allow yourself to be pampered with your favorite ladies – and nosh on Concession Stand Candy, of course. The guys will be jealous!
