The Ultimate Guide to Throwing a Sleepover Party

Girls Sleepover Ideas

Isn’t this girls’ sleepover just the cutest?

Slumber parties are a timeless childhood tradition and we’ve got the perfect recipe of girls’ sleepover ideas to make yours one to remember. It all starts with tasty treats, fun activities and the ultimate sleepover movies. We’ll reveal what they are further down!

Let’s get started…

Yummy midnight snacks

They’re called sleepovers but there’s not usually much sleeping! Make sure you put out plenty of tasty midnight snacks to give the girls something to eat while they’re up chatting and watching films.

English muffins, hot chocolate and a few extra things to nibble on make great sleepover snacks. And if you want to keep hyperactivity to a minimum, replace the sugary treats with something savoury.

Pink and white popcorn boxes make great snack holders. Leave some next to your party food so your guests can fill them with whatever they want before you stick a movie on. There’s nothing worse than having to get up when you’re warm and comfy under a duvet! You can find the ones we used here.

Putting your treats out on a cake stand makes your slumber party look extra cute and girly – we chose a pink colour scheme but this is entirely up to you. Make it as girly or as non-girly as you like.

Pretty in pink decorations

Cute decorations make your sleepover look extra special. You could even create a cosy atmosphere by hanging up a few fairy lights! Night owls are a cute party theme whatever your child’s age too.
