Slumber parties are one of the best ways to bond with your friends and family. However, they are not just for teenage girls. Even adults can host a slumber party and get in on the fun.
If you want to relive the memories of your teenage days and have some fun, then here is how you can host a successful adult slumber party.
1. Guest List
First things first, you need a guest list. You have to ponder if you are going to invite all your friends or it is just going to be the girls. However, one thing you need to consider is the space in your home.
After all, you want everyone to have a comfortable place to sleep. That is why you should only invite people you can fit in your home. It will allow everyone to have a good night’s sleep and less stressful morning.
2. Location Options
If you have many friends and not enough space in your home, then you can always host the slumber party elsewhere. For example, you can utilize your backyard as a campground, or you can find a quaint mountain cabin or beach house. That depends on what your guests would love and your budget.
Always keep your options open and look for fun locations if your house does not allow everyone to fit. You can also rent a local Air BnB that has a huge space to fit all your guests. Having decided on the final location also enables you to determine the kind of equipment you will be needing. You might need party lights for disco music and location plays a very important role in considering that route.
3. Send Out Invitations
Now that you have the location and the guest list, it is time to send out the invitations. You can send an email or buy beautiful invitation cards at the store to send out. Ensure the date, location, and anything else the guests might need to know is on the invitation.
If you don’t want to go through the hassle of sending out invites, you can always call your friends and invite them. That is especially true if you are planning the party soon.
4. Choose A Theme
Do you want the slumber party to be fun and fantastic? If you do, then all you need is a theme. Here are the many adult slumber party themes you can choose from:
- Spa night
- Game night
- Social media and tech-free night
- Movie night
- Karaoke sleepover
- Camp and bonfire
- And many others
There are endless themes you can choose from. You can also take kids’ slumber party ideas and put an adult spin on them to have more fun. The primary aim should be to have an atmosphere that is relaxed and comfortable so everyone can feel at ease.
After deciding all the main elements of the slumber party, it is time to buy decorations and other necessary items. Here are some of the essential tips you need to follow:
- There should be enough pillows and blankets for everyone
- Ensure you have a fluffy rug, so if guests want to chill on the floor, they have a comfortable place
- Follow a color scheme and then buy party supplies according to it
- Have adequate and appropriate lighting according to the theme. You can use nightlights, paper lanterns, or disco lights, depending on the theme
- If you are going for a spa night, ensure you have essential oils and a diffuser for a relaxing atmosphere
In the same way, your decoration supplies depend on your theme and location. You need to ensure you have everything your guests might need to have fun and also relax once the party is over and it is time to sleep.
Last but not least, you need to have adequate food. There should be two meals. One should be dinner, the other is breakfast, and there should also be snacks for the time in between.
You can order dinner and breakfast or cook it yourself. It depends on your preferences and budget. However, here are some snack options you should keep for your guests:
- Potato chips
- Charcuterie board if your friends like meat and cheese
- Hummus and veggies
- And much more
You know your guests the best. Think about what they would want and then buy the snacks accordingly.
That was your complete guide to hosting a successful slumber party. Follow these tips, and your friends will fall in love with the fun and fantastic party you have thrown. You can also give your guests party favors before they leave so they have something to remember the amazing night by.
