We know that Friday nights don’t always mean putting on your fiercest frock and hitting the town. Sometimes, your favorite LBD stays politely in your closet while you cuddle up to something snuggly. Sometimes, you trade in the dance floor for a well-pillowed living room, or the cocktails for popcorn and a movie. Okay, maybe we’ll keep the cocktails…
The Friday Night In Club is here to celebrate these moments, because we’ve all had those nights when all we want to do is stay at home. For the first installment of our Friday Night In series, we’re honoring the slumber parties of our childhood, where the midnight musings and giggly games were aplenty. Read on to see how we’re serving up all the makings for a downright adorable sleepover.
On the ‘Plush’ Side
Gather the gals and enough pillows to make a fluffy fox jealous. When late-night belly laughs take over, you’ll be wrapped up in comfort as “ROFL” becomes a reality.
After you’ve created a lounging area fit for the greatest of loafs, we suggest getting those party refreshments ready! I think we can agree that a slumber party isn’t quite complete without something sweet. So, as a perfect pairing to popcorn and the pretty prints surrounding you, we’ve crafted a cocktail as cute as it is tasty. Check out the super-duper easy how-to below!
