No Plans? 5 Fun Things to do With Your Girlfriends on a Friday Night

Christy | 10:28 AM |

Its Friday night, you’ve been working hard all week and you are ready to relax and have some fun with your girlfriends. Here are some fun activity ideas to help make your girls night out (or in) a success:

  • Slumber Party

Rent a few sappy movies, grab a few bottles of your drink of choice and spend the night dishing on celebrity dirt on sites like Cupid’s Pulse Celebrity News. This idea is fun, casual and can be thrown together quickly.

Depending on how large your brood is you can assign one person to host and provide movies while all of the guests bring something to drink or a dish to share. If there are not any movies for rent that appeal to you, consider renting a classic like “Sixteen Candles”, “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” or “Dirty Dancing".

  • Makeovers

Between work, family and maybe even school, you juggle a lot. Kick back and take a load off by throwing a makeover night. A simple manicure station, pedicure station and conditioning mask is all you will need to host your very own makeover night.

  • Wardrobe Exchange

Are you looking for a thrifty way to revamp your wardrobe? Try throwing a wardrobe exchange party. Dig out clothing and accessories that you would like to replace and exchange pieces with your friends. In addition to exchanging clothes, this could also work for books, household trinkets, shoes, etc.

  • A Night on the Town

After a long week, what better way to kick back with your gal pals than to enjoy a night on the town? You could grab a bite at your favorite restaurant, hit the mall and find some new clothing or you could take this opportunity to try someplace new with your BFF’s. Check your local entertainment calendar to look for bars, dance clubs, restaurants or even independent films that you have not seen yet.

  • Get Some Culture

If your ladies nights are becoming a bit routine, try shaking things up by attending a cultural event. Whether your crowd is into opera, history, fashion or traditional theater, you can most likely find a suitable cultural event in your city or somewhere nearby. If you need some ideas, try checking your local paper or a performing arts center for a listing of available events in your area.

Here are some popular ideas:

  • -open mic nights
  • -theater presentations
  • -book signings or local author events
  • -ballet performances
  • -public lectures
  • -symphony performances
So the next time you need some help turning your Friday night from drab to fab, consider these fun ideas.
