IMG_5310After a long week (or weekend) sometimes a good night in with your friends is just what a girl needs.  I absolutely love taking an evening to not get dressed up and go out to the bars but instead sit around in my comfy sweat shirt and mismatched PJ pants (because honestly, who really wears their PJs as a set?) and stuff my face while watching girly movies and giggling.  So I say for National Girlfriend Day we all treat ourselves and at least one babe in our lives to a fun evening in to celebrate how amazing and special they are to you.

Snacks:  Who likes going to a party without snacks?  That’s right no one!  I think this is probably the most important part of this post.  For our ladies night, we did courses to our snacks.  To start we make a charcuterie with crostinis and other snacks to pair with the cheese, and instead of wine for this course, we made a nice pot of tea.  Later we made chocolate covered strawberries and had wine.  Other ideas for snacks would be popcorn with sweet and savory toppings.

How are you going to celebrate National Girlfriend Day?
