Who said sleepovers were for teenagers? Slumber parties for everyone who wants to plan a fun and cool bonding sesh with their girlfriends. And now, you can make your slumber party exciting with some not-so-common ideas. Gone are the days when you’d huddle in a circle, share ghost stories, watch movies, binge on snacks and have pillow fights. It’s no longer the same as it was.
Move on to the perfect slumber party game plan! The new IN-thing is to get your girlies involved in a process, something that’s fun and collective. So go on and sport some trendy nightwear outfits, gather your accessories, and let’s head to slumberland, in style!
1) PowerPoint Nights FTW!
One thing that came out of the pandemic was our ability to indulge in long hours of screen time. While we obviously didn’t have much choice in the matter, we’ve now grown to love the virtual hangout space so much that it has seeped into our non-pandemic lives. PPTs are no longer a workplace asset! Host an intimate PPT night with your friends. The key is to keep it short, punny and interesting so you’ll have a guaranteed good time.
2) Make Your Own Pizza Party
Gather around the kitchen table! Full of rich toppings, ranging from sundried cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, pepperoni, olives, bacon strips, and caramelized onions – you’re never going to run out of fun combinations. Each of you gets a pizza base and a taste palette that will keep you following a topping route. Serve dinner hot with love. Chefs kiss mwah!
3) Theme Photobooths
Love to glam up for the cam? Get decked up, decorate your background and get clicking! Even if you’re using a simple streamer backdrop, and some flickering lights, you’re bound to find an aesthetic you all love. Choose a theme (anything from 90’s Bollywood to Stranger Things) that’ll let your creative juices flow. All that’s left to do is shoot ‘em and post it on the gram!
4) Sing & Dance Offs
Time to feel footloose and follow your heart wherever it takes you. Grab the mic and belt some tunes, with your karaoke machine. Get a list of songs printed out, so everyone can join you as you sing along. As the night progresses, you can even have dance-offs (maybe start with Chaiyya Chaiyya and end with something from Step Up?) Either way, you’re going to have a ball of a night!
Ps. don’t forget to get some videos to remind you of these rockin’ memories.
5) Mani-Pedi kinda nights
Bring out your nail paints and glitter! It’s time to get crafty with your designs with matching colours and more. There’s nothing like a pamper session to make you bond with your friends while you talk about everything under the sun.
