With the chaos of the year’s most prominent hosting season now done and gone, you might be totally over hosting—or, a chill night in with your girls could be just what you need. If you’ve had your fill of being the hostess with the mostess, our team at H&T think it’s the perfect time to kick back with your closest friends for a laid-back evening. No more planning, no more stressing and certainly no need to worry about impressing anyone—just a night in where the only agenda is relaxation and enjoying each other’s company. If this sounds like exactly what you’ve been craving, read on to discover our tips for hosting the perfect chill girls’ night in.

Keep it casual.

Remember, this is not a get-together that needs to be stressed over. Keep it casual with a cute digital invitation or a group message. You can find plenty of fun pre-made invites on Canva if scrolling through invitations fits your vibe. If not, your friends will be just as excited to receive a text from you in a group chat with all of their favorites.

Choose a theme.

Consider choosing a theme for the night, whether it’s a movie or binge-watching marathon, a wine night or a baking night. This can set the tone, get your friends excited and make planning activities easier. Plus, a well-chosen theme adds a touch of creativity and makes the gathering all the more memorable for everyone involved. Choose something you know that everyone would enjoy but also places the least amount of stress on you.

Remember comfort is key.

Encourage your friends to come in their comfiest attire. Whether it’s PJs, leggings or sweats, the goal is maximum comfort. Set the mood with cozy blankets, cushions and ambient lighting. Consider placing scented candles around your space or using essential oils for an extra touch of relaxation.

Get your favorite snacks and drinks.

Create a signature drink for the night, whether it’s a mocktail, cocktail, or a fancy soda—it’s a simple touch that makes the evening that much more special. You could also ask everyone to bring their favorite snack to share, or even each DoorDash your favorite meal to the house and enjoy a night of food delivery together.

Set the vibe with a playlist.

There’s nothing quite like vibing to your favorite songs with your favorite people. You can create your own playlist for a more carefully curated feel, or if you want to save yourself a little extra time, you can search for the best pre-made playlist on Spotify or the streaming service of your choice. From nostalgic hits to the latest chart-toppers, a well-crafted playlist sets the mood and keeps the energy throughout the night. Whatever it may be, let the music be the soundtrack to your memorable night in with the people you love most.
