The Best Girls Night In Ideas That Are Actually Fun

There’s nothing like a night in with your girls, where you can relax together, talk about everything and nothing and just enjoy eachothers company. But if you find you always end up just sitting around and not doing much, you might start to get a bit bored. While it’s always fun, if you’re looking to elevate your girls’ nights into something a bit more interesting, there are a host of things you can do. In this article we take a look at some ideas of how you can still have a girls night in, but can mix it up a bit. Keep reading to find out more. 

Have a themed movie evening

One of the first things you should try when looking to shake up your girls nights, is to have a themed movie evening in. Instead of just sitting in front of the TV and it not feeling special, make a much more fun way to watch your favourite binge worthy shows and films. You can do this by decorating your home to look like a movie theatre, having things such as tickets for people when they enter, decorations and movie themed snacks and drinks. Get large buckets of popcorn, pick n mix sweets and slushy ice drinks. This will all make it feel a lot more fun than your regular evening in!

Do a virtual cooking course together

If you all like a bit of cooking or want to scale up your cooking efforts, a virtual cooking course can be a great way to do this. You can get a tutorial online or sign up for a course, then cook along with the instructor. You can often select the meal you will be making ahead of time when you sign up for the course, so you can have time to go out and get all the ingredients. Not only is it fun to do, but you’ll pick up some excellent new skills and also be able to enjoy the meal afterwards!

Try a party and paint evening

If your group is a bit creative, a party and paint evening is the ideal choice to get you all together doing something fun. For this, you simply need to buy some canvases or art boards, some acrylic or watercolour paints and then you’re good to go! You could put some flowers in vases in the middle of the table that you need to paint or have everyone just see what ideas they come up with. Serve some cocktails or prosecco while you enjoy your evening and you’re good to go!

Do a quiz where you all make up a round 

This can be a super fun evening and a way to learn a bit more about certain topics or even about each other! A quiz is a great way to encourage a bit of healthy competition and get you all laughing and thinking. We recommend you all make up a round and take it in turns to host the quiz. You could do a quiz based on each other, asking questions to see who knows you best, or you could do it based on general knowledge, celebs or music The choice is yours!

Try your hand at pottery

There are a myriad of pottery kits on the market and all you really need is a simple one to have a fun night in with your girls. With a pottery kit you can all try moulding something such as a mug, trinket dish, fruit bowl or ornament. Dry clay is relatively easy to use, doesn’t require any fancy tools and once it’s dried completely, then you can paint it and use it in your home. Look at some tutorials online and don’t forget to take photos as you go, it could be a situation of trusting the process!

Have a cocktail evening

Cocktails are another great way to bring everyone together and rather than have one person shell out all the money for ingredients, you could all make your favourite tipple to share with the group. There could be a theme to the cocktails, for example, everyone has to make one starting with the first letter of their name, or everyone makes one that is inspired by their job. Take a look on sites like Pinterest to find some cocktail recipes that inspire you and not only taste great but look amazing too! You can purchase cocktail kits online to make it a little easier too!

Try having a dinner party

If you want to up the ante on the food you’re eating, how about a group dinner party? The person hosting could be the one to cook and go all out, you could all chip in together, or everyone could bring a course or round of drinks. You could all dress up, make the table look fancy and just have an overall fantastic experience. A dinner party is a great way to bring everyone together, where you can socialise over food and just enjoy each other’s company in a sophisticated way while tucking into some delicious food along the way. 

These are just a few things you can do that can ensure you have a really fun girls night in. When you’re looking to just shut out the outside world for a bit, spend time with your nearest and dearest and do something a little different at the same time, there really are plenty of options to be getting on with. No matter if your interests alternate from each other, there is sure to be something here that will bring you all together and make sure you enjoy yourselves and make memories. Be sure to consider the food and drink you’ll serve alongside your activities and take plenty of photos to remember the night by!
