Casual Entertaining is also about taken the burden off of yourself and delegating some of
the hosting on to your attendees.
The truth is your girlfriends want to help, and they will probably ask you what they can do
or what they can bring.
So tell them.
It’s ok to have someone bring a dessert or another person bring the appetizer or drinks. It’s also ok to tell your friends
exactly what you would like them to bring, if you have a vision for your ladies night in.
2. Home Made isn’t Necessary
When it comes to the food, keep it simple. The worst thing to do is to leave the burden of preparing all of the food and drinks for the party on yourself.
If you want to make homemade food, stick to a simple appetizer or a single entree.
Don’t do too much, no one will give you a medal for preparing everything from scratch.
Instead you might be too exhausted from cooking all day.

3. Have Ideas
Every minute of the night doesn’t have to be pre-planned, but as a host it’s nice to have a few ideas for what the ladies can do.
- Make it a vision board party. All you need to make a goal setting night is a stack of magazines, several scissors and poster boards. Everyone simply cuts images or words that resonate with them.
- Another great idea would be to turn your girls night in party into a memorable girls night with fondue or sushi making night.
- Clothing Exchange party is also a great idea. Each person can bring 5-7 items to exchange with others.
4. Set the Mood
A proper girls night in deserve all of the decor and fun details. A few fun elements on the bar cart, faux florals for the table really create the mood for a fun ladies night in. As a host, it’s fun to dress up your space and make your guests excited for the evening.
