As much as you might want all your friends to be there I always think it’s best to stick to a core group. As a ‘host’ you’ll find it easier to relax if all your friends are friends with each other so you don’t feel responsible if anyone is feeling left out or doesn’t get an ‘in joke’.
You’ll all be snuggled in your comfiest pjs so you’ll need a setting to match, right? It’s all well and good having a cosy bed but what about the rest of them? Make the floor the most comfortable place in the room and you’ll have them fighting over who’s sleeping there. Firstly you’ll need them all to bring at least one pillow each (you’re providing the house so this is fair) and then any soft furnishings that aren’t in use (so don’t go taking your parents duvets, folks) and layer them on the floor. I’m talking sofa cushions, clean bath mats, blankets, ANYTHING SOFT.
Manicures, pedicures, braiding station they are all cost free things that your sleepover salon can provide! Have a few bananas and some porridge oats downstairs? DIY natural facemask ingredients sorted. No appointments necessary!
Anything that requires too much effort or precision in the kitchen doesn’t make for a fun slumber party! Chips and dip, cheeky pizzas and lots of snacks will keep everyone’s hunger at bay and doesn’t require any effort or too much moolah (own supermarket own brand snacks are really affordable and taste the same as branded buys). If you want to add an element of kitchen teamwork, why not pick up cookie or cake mix (or get one of your girls to)? It’s quick, simple and the perfect sweet snack post-pizza.
