We get so caught in the daily motions of life that we do not even have a moment to catch our breath. We forget the things that matter such as rest, creating wonderful memories with our loved ones, travelling the world to our heart’s content, living life our way. We also tend to forget tapping into the support created by a community of women. Worse still, most women are so busy that they have no time to form communities with other like-minded women. However, starting with a ladies’ night can be a great way to start forming communities and having your share of the goodies in relationships that most people do not notice. Here are some tips for planning a great ladies’ night:
Choose a day that’s comfortable for all of you
Ensure you and your girlfriends agree on a day. It doesn’t need to be on a weekend, you can have a ladies’ night on a weekday as well. What matters is that all the readiness of all the participants on that day.
Choose a comfortable venue
You could decide to meet in someone’s house or rent a space in a restaurant or bar. Ensure that the venue is comfortable and allows for games. Also, your venue must be a safe one. You do not want to put the lives of your girlfriends in danger.
Choose a theme for the event
Your theme mostly decides how the event would go. For instance, if it is a games night, you will be playing a lot of games. If it is a talk night, you guys will be doing more of talking. If it is a secret-sharing night, you will be sharing confidences. In short, your theme helps to give direction to the event, however, you should ensure that the theme does not make the party rigid.
Make provisions for food and drinks
You can visit the best recipes websites for recipes to cook. Cooking together can be a stronger way of bonding among you all. Besides, you can be creative with your cooking. You can decide to cook an intercontinental dish and in the process, learn more about its origin. However, you may decide to order food from your favourite restaurant. Anyways, ensure the food tastes good. Also, get the best drinks to go along with the food. Make the night memorable even from the food and drinks. If it is a Friday night party where most people will have no serious engagements on Saturday, beer, wine and spirits could feature for those who are interested.
Provide good music
What is a ladies’ night without good music? Ensure you get some good music ready for all of you to dance to. Besides being a means of having fun, it is a way to destress and get off any emotional baggage.
Provide room for talking
To get the best out of a ladies’ night, you need to make room for talking. You can talk about your visions, dreams, goals, plans, fears, etc. You can talk about your joys, insecurities, etc. Encourage everyone to say something. This way, you will know who needs help, who needs some words of advice, who needs encouragement, etc.
However you plan your ladies’ night out, ensure it is tailored to the interests of the other ladies as well.
