Who doesn’t enjoy spending time with their girlfriends? Whether you prefer to stay at home or want to let your hair down and enjoy a wild night out, we have you covered. Here are 29 Girls’ Night Party Ideas that will guarantee you a great night.
Invite your girlfriends around for a cooking evening and bond over your shared love of food. Be inventive and plan your meal. You can create a menu with everyone’s favorites or focus on foods from one particular country. If something goes wrong, what does it matter? You worked as a team and had fun, and that is all that counts.
For an evening with a difference, throw a tasting party. Focus on a specific cuisine or on one type of food or drink. Alcohol-themed tastings are always popular.

Get the restaurant experience in the comfort of your own home and spoil your friends by hiring a private chef to cater for your girls’ night. No stressful last-minute cooking, no washing up, and best of all, more time with your girlfriends. As you have the chef’s undivided attention, they can individualize the menu, great if anyone has specific dietary requirements.
If you are looking for a great party food idea then why not try a fondue evening. Strawberries, dried fruit, and marshmallows go perfectly with chocolate, or enjoy dipping your vegetables in melted cheese. Strong-flavored cheeses, such as gruyere or emmental work best. Get into the retro spirit by dressing up in vintage clothes and putting on some 70s music and fondue the night away.
If you and your girlfriends share a love of sugary treats, why not skip the main meal altogether and head straight to the sweets with a potluck dessert night. Try a color-themed dessert night or focus on one ingredient. Make sure you have great dessert wines for everyone to enjoy. Any leftover food can be given to your friends to take home.
This challenging game is great for getting brains ticking. Work as a team to solve puzzles and accomplish tasks to escape the room. If you don’t have an Escape Room experience nearby, then you can always host one in your own home. Keep it simple and choose a theme that your friends will enjoy. To make things easier, download one of many great online kits.
If you and your girlfriends love being scared, then spend an evening telling scary stories. You can get your friends to write their own ghost stories beforehand or read one of their favorite short stories. You can even have a prize for the scariest story. If you are inside, turn off the lights, put on some spine-chilling music, and be prepared to be terrified.
For a twist on the usual bowling evening, why not play some glow-in-the-dark bowling. Making the pins is very simple; all you need is six clear water bottles, sand, and color glow sticks. Set them up outside in the garden and see if you can knock them down. Get into teams and have fun seeing who can knock over the most pins.
For a great board game night, ask friends to bring their favorite games with them. Check how long the games last. You will probably get through three or four games in a night. Try to avoid games that can go on too long such as monopoly. Boardgame evenings can be a lot of fun and you will find the evening flies by.
The rules for a blind makeover game are simple; the first person is blindfolded and does the makeup for the second person. When they are finished, the second person puts on the blindfold and does the makeup for the third person, and so on. Make sure you take lots of photos. You can even frame them as a gift for your friends.
Who doesn’t love a game of twister? Lay out the rubber mat on the floor. Choose two or three of your friends to play with and one person to spin the spinner. The winner is the person who can stay balanced for the longest. This is a great game that usually ends in everyone laying in a tangled giggling heap on the floor.
For this game, the host will have to arrange various audio clips of various singers. Arrange the clips and download them onto your computer. Put your friends into two teams and play them the audio. Give them a minute to guess the singer correctly. Award points for correct answers. The team with the most points at the end wins.
For Heads Up, choose a couple of themes such as famous people or what to do on a first date. Make sure that no one sees the cards beforehand. Stick the card on your friend’s foreheads and watch them desperately try to help each other guess their words correctly. This twist on a classic charades game will get everyone going.
Everyone enjoys being pampered, so why not release the stresses of the day with a relaxing night spa experience. At a night spa, you and your girlfriends will receive all the treatments that are available during the day such as your choice of massage and use of the hot tub, and sauna. Choose a package that includes a glass of champagne and unwind under the stars.
It is not often as adults we get to revisit our childhoods, so why not invite your girlfriends to stay overnight for a grown-up sleepover. Spend the night enjoying each other’s company and then in the morning cook together a great breakfast with all your favorite breakfast foods. Why bother getting dressed when you can just lounge around in your pajamas all morning.
A swap day is a great way to get rid of things you no longer want. Decide beforehand on what you want to swap; clothes, shoes, and jewelry are always popular items. Bring them to the Swap Day party and have fun checking out each other’s swaps. Have a couple of glasses of wine and enjoy the evening. You never know what you will come home with.
Watching movies is a great way to spend time with friends. Choose movies that you know everyone will enjoy. Pour some wine, open a box of chocolates, and bring out the popcorn. Turn the lights down and start the chick flick marathon. Be prepared to laugh and cry – a lot. Even before the final credits roll, you will be planning your next marathon session.
If you enjoy shopping then this is the perfect activity for you. Get together with some like-minded friends and hit the stores. Shopping in the evening does have benefits, the stores are usually less busy and you may also find that some stores will be more willing to reduce their prices. You never know, you might just get that bargain you were hoping for.
Experience the beauty of the night sky from the deck of a boat. Enjoy the peace and calm as you cruise through the inky sea. Night cruises are popular in tourist areas. You may even be able to book a private cruise for yourself and your friends. Have dinner on board and make the whole evening that extra bit special.
Do you want to know a secret? Book Clubs aren’t just about the books. Sure, you can choose some great books and bond over a shared passion but it is also a chance to emotionally unload. Use the books to share your feelings and thoughts with other people and, if they happen to be good friends, so much the better.
If you enjoy getting manicures and pedicures, then why not make a night of it. Buy one of the great online packages and invite your girlfriends over for a pamper session. Help each other achieve a great look. For that extra bit of indulgence, hire a manicurist to come to your home and have great nails to show off the next day.
For an original take on the girl’s night in, why not host a yoga night? Put on a DVD and practice together or better still hire an instructor from a local studio to come to your home and give you an hour’s workout. Follow up with some healthy food, snacks, and drinks. You and your friends are guaranteed to feel great afterward.
No list of any girls’ night-out ideas would be complete without everybody’s favorite, a karaoke evening. So shed your inhibitions, grease your vocal cords, release your inner diva and get singing. You and your friends will have a great time and by the end of the evening, no one will care if you sound like Mariah Carey or Donald Duck!
For an evening with a difference, take a tour of a museum at night. Whether you’re an avid museum-goer or not, strolling through empty corridors can feel a little unnerving. Some museums will include either dinner or a glass of champagne in the price of the ticket. After that night, you will never look at museums the same way again.
They say laughter is the best medicine, so for a great girls’ night why don’t you take in a comedy show. There are plenty of comedy clubs around the country where you can see established and newly emerging comedians. Relax in great company, take a few hours off from your stressful lives, forget your problems and laugh the night away with friends.
Seeing a show is for many people one of the highlights of their year. With so many great shows out there you will be spoilt for choice; comedy, drama, thriller, musical – there is something for everyone. Combine the theatre trip with a meal at a great restaurant and you and your girlfriends are sure to have an unforgettable evening.
If you want an evening with a supernatural edge, then why not visit a psychic. Popular with bachelorette parties; psychic evenings are regularly held across the country. Decide if you want to speak to a clairvoyant or medium or if you prefer to have your palm or tarot cards read. Whatever you choose, go in with an open mind and enjoy the experience.
There is nothing as great as letting your hair down and dancing the night away. Choose a club with a great atmosphere and first rate DJ. Many clubs do themed nights, so whether you prefer heavy metal, 70s music or techno, you are guaranteed to find the right club for you. So hit that dance floor, shake your stuff and have an amazing night.
If you fancy a fun but highly effective workout then why not try a trampoline park. Bouncing up and down on a trampoline will get your pulses racing as well as simply being great fun. Get your girlfriends to join in and compete over who can bounce the highest or do the best somersaults. You will come away exhausted but exhilarated.
