Appetizers: Nothing says girls’ night like fancy finger foods and extravagant dresses that make you feel like you’re at an Oscar party. Some great ideas include sushi hand rolls, bruschetta or crostini, bacon-wrapped anything, or stuffed mushrooms.
Dinner: There’s no better food for girls’ night than pizza, and you can warm up a frozen one in the oven (good), opt for cheesy and gooey delivery (better), or make your own individual mini pizzas (best). Buy the dough at the grocery store, cut up your favorite toppings, put out some shredded cheeses and sauce, and let the ladies make their own designer pizzas.
Drinks: Here’s the ultimate just because drink idea: a mimosa bar. Everybody loves mimosas, and this way each of your besties can customize her own drink. Set out a bottle of sparkling wine (or two), champagne glasses, some fresh berries for garnish, and a bottle each of OJ, lemonade (raspberry or plain), pomegranate juice, and mango juice.
SETTING THE MOOD
No HUNKS the Show pregame is complete without Magic Mike playing in the background, so make sure you get it cued up for when you’re eating and enjoying the mimosa bar.
