Before you even have your pajama party, you are going to need to invite your friends. Greetings Island has over 30 slumber party invitations that you can customize, download, print or send online, for free. Kitty Baby Love features a large selection of free, printable slumber party invitations. Also, Love to Know has a few sleepover party invitations that you can print for free. We really love these Night Owl invites from Amazon, though!
When it comes to party decorations, you don’t really need much at all. String some sparkly twinkle lights around your living room for a warm, cozy glow. Amazon has a 36-Foot LED Indoor Fairy Lights with Remote and Timer.
The only other decorations you need (and they really aren’t considered decorations) are floor pillows, cozy throws and warm blankets spread out on the living room floor, so your guests can get comfortable for a fun night.
Target features Bright Embroidered Floor Pillows, which measure 24-feet long and 24-inches wide. Overstock has Oversized Plush Reversible Floor Cushions, which come in an array of colors and measure 36-inches long and 28-inches wide. Amazon features Printed Soft Fleece Sherpa Throws, which come in different colors- and measure 60-inches long and 50-inches wide. Lastly, Urban Outfitters has Amped Fleece Throw Blankets, which come in 6 colors- blue, coral, lilac, mauve, peach and sand- and measure 60-inches long and 71-inches wide.
Tableware is another item that you don’t necessarily need, but it is still nice to have.
For your table centerpiece, 1-800-Flowers has Fresh Floral Cocktails, which are bouquets of fresh flowers that sit inside oversized martini glasses. You can choose from Girls Night Out Bouquet, Sangria Bouquet or Lemon Martini Bouquet. Amazon has a Bright Pink Plastic Tableware Kit, which has enough dinner and dessert plates, napkins, cups and cutlery, for 24 guests. The kit also includes a table cover.
4. Food & Drink
Pajama parties are really all about munchies and snacks. However, if you’re looking for a food idea, consider a DIY pizza bar.
Now, let’s talk snacks! Some munchie and snack ideas include things like meat and cheese platters, fruit and veggie platters, nachos, gourmet popcorn, pretzels and potato chips with dip. Try our Homemade Guacamole with Goat Cheese for an upscale snack!
And, to wash it all down- mocktails, of course! You get all the yummy taste of the real thing without the nasty headaches the next morning. So much easier when you have to go home to take care of kiddos! Try our Mermaid Punch Mocktail Drink Recipe for a fun drink!
For party activities, consider fun activities like watching a movie marathon or playing a classic board game or two.
A great idea for your movie marathon is to watch movies about friends, friendship and love. Need some ideas? 1988- Beaches, 1991- Fried Green Tomatoes, 2004- 13 Going on 30 and 2011- Bridesmaids.
Classic board games are those that you probably played at your pajama parties as a teenager. Need some ideas? Some fun board games are Boggle, Clue, Pictionary, Scrabble, The Game of Life and Trivial Pursuit. Don’t forget to leave a little free time for a little light-hearted gossip!
6. Party Favors
You’re going to want to send your pajama party guests home with a party favor, so they can remember all the fun they had! Sleep masks make a great slumber party favor. You can get 10 of them fairly cheap on Amazon. Another fun idea: make sugar scrubs for your guests! You can either do this before they arrive and hand them out as they leave, or make them together as a party activity. My favorite? Our coffee scrub!
These are just a few of our favorite pajama party ideas for adults to make your bash a hit. The most important part is the memories you’ll make with your best gal pals! Between parenting, family commitments, and work, it’s just so nice to connect with old friends and spend the night focusing on yourselves!
