Ladies, we’ve just come off the back of party season and now we’re trying to ease back into some form of a work routine. I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted. I think I may have drank and ate away a small chunk of my savings and now I need to regroup and save. In saying that, I still want to have a good time just without the pricey UBER fares and $18 cocktails. Which brings me to the perfect girl’s night in, A.K.A. the adult sleepover party for your besties!

Think comfy clothes, classic romcom movies, gossipy chats, scrumptious food and delicious alcohol beverages. Sounds like a dream, I know. If you’re getting excited at the mere thought of having the girls over for a night to remember, then keep on reading because we’ve put together the ultimate check list.

Set the mood

This type of sleepover demands pillows, cushions and oversized blankets. Because we’re not teenagers anymore, incorporate scented candles to create the perfect mood lighting. If you have a few extra bucks, some helium balloons will also elevate the mood and bring a sense of fun to your evening.

The menu

A night like this demands the ultimate grazing table! Yup, cover your coffee table in an array of cheese, nuts, fruits and crackers for a mouth-watering treat.

What to drink? If you have the skillset and patience, prepare a cute little cocktail list to showcase your amazing bar tendering skills. But, if you want to keep things simple and easy, Champagne with a Strawberry will just add a hint of EXTRA to your night.

Don’t forget dessert! Put together an Instagram worthy selection of cupcakes, biscuits and chocolates for an impressive sweet treat line up.


If you really want to blow your guests away, having a few activities planned will keep everyone entertained. Opt for board games such as classic TWISTER, or card games such as Poker, or if you’re feeling like a little bit of a bet, have ago a KENO. You’ll also need a few movie favourites to wind down with such as Pretty Woman, 10 Things I Hate About You, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Mean Girls, Hot Chicks or even 13 Going On 30.

Good luck lovelies! Hope you enjoy planning the perfect sleepover with your besties!
