There are all kinds of ways for people to reconnect with others now that didn’t exist thirty years ago. While our parents’ dinner parties from back then were wildly different from the dinner parties that we host now, the ways that we forge emotional bonds and relationships remains virtually the same.
As much as Generation Y & Millennials love to get out to see the world and to have new experiences, they’re looking forward to the next stage of life beyond the bar scene. But the fun doesn’t have to stop when you become a grown-up and purchase your first home. Enter the Girls Night In, where friends invite loved ones into their home for music, food, drinks, and swapping stories. Get your best menu together, a playlist with some of today’s best tunes, and a home that’s perfect for hosting!
A home is a space that’s designed for others to congregate in, no matter the occasion. Spaces like the living room, the dining room, and even the backyard serve as spots that people naturally gravitate to. Look to accommodate many people in one space so they can gather together and converse with each other. Forward thinking kitchen designers are making the kitchen a social scene by incorporating entertainment islands into their designs. As if the lure of food wasn’t strong enough, an island gives everyone something to stand around and share stories over.
Take some time to show off your new home with pride! A girls’ night in is the perfect occasion, especially after you’re fully furnished or when you have some great news to share. A tip: while you’re celebrating with your friends, pick the most dramatic part of your home to do it in. Maybe the backyard has some great atmospheric lighting, or the kitchen is great for a dessert making class, or you like the way your dining room is shaped to accommodate large crowds. Wherever you choose to party, your tastes will shine through.
Theaters cancel shows, bars close early, and music festivals get crowded, but you can control a girls’ night in at your home. From the plates to the playlist, you can control every element of your event, even right down to the décor! Incorporate the aesthetics of your home into the décor for the night. Your friends will recognize your personal style in the selections you made for the cabinets, countertops, even the plumbing hardware. Tonight’s a night to celebrate your success and have fun with friends.
