      • Film Night (at home)

Rent out an old school projector and host a film night! Get all you besties round and their partners too - trust me it will be super cool. If you don't wnat evryone too get too soppy then don't just dive into the usual chick flicks or rom coms. Why not turn your evening into a Scarefest with some spine-tingling horrors! There are some terrifying ones on Netflix right now but the old classics never fail to impress!

It would also be super cool to create the whole cinema experience. So once you have eyour seating area all setup, there’s so many cute ‘mini snack’ ideas you could make. Mini hot dogs, cute little popcorn boxes and I’d totally set up a prosecco bar (heck you're at home is your rules !!!). Then just sit back and relax.

      • Throw a single girl party

      • Home spa night

If you’re loved up or decided you’re just having a night in with your dear old mum, why not spend some quality time together at home? It’s all the craze to create your own DIY beauty products. So smush some avocado and honey and kick back with some faces masks and a takeaway! For real... When do we take the time to look after ourselves a little bit. A little self love goes a long way !

      • Host a ‘group date’ dinner party

You have a great bunch of friends, so wouldn't it be super cool to mix it up with a tapas night? Set a theme or  a country and invite everyone to bring some delicious home cooked food from that region. I don't know about you but I get serious food envy at normal restaurants so this is kinda my food dream right here! OK ok, we are starting to realise that most of our suggestions are based around food .... like these yummy morsels!!!!
