Believe it or not, I LOVE to throw get togethers at my home. Before I moved to Florida my husband and I were known for the bar-b-que’s and crab boils (that is whole ‘nother post for a different day) that we use to throw. Every weekend we would have something going on at our house. Not to mention that I am the theme queen for all things holidays. I will throw a party for just my children for no reason at all and put my all into it just as if I was throwing a party for a group of people. But I digress.

One thing that is important to me is making sure women, as mother’s, don’t forget to kick back, relax, and enjoy being a woman and not just a mom.

I like to get together with a small group of women every blue moon to enjoy good food and even better cocktails. When I was presented with the opportunity by T.G.I. Friday’s and Essence Magazine to throw a party for a few friends while trying out the new T.G.I. Friday’s cocktail drinks, I jumped at the chance. Being a “penny pinching diva” I of course have to put a money saving spin on almost everything. Originally I was just going to make this a one post article.

But I have decided that so many other women need to learn how to plan their Own Girls Night In party on a budget that I will be sharing a new tip everyday this week to help you plan your own party on a budget.

It doesn’t take much to throw a small party. It really doesn’t. And with the help of T.G.I. Friday’s cocktail drinks you can take their motto of “We Mix It. You Kick It.” and really have fun with it. And what’s a party without a theme? Not fun at all. The theme of my Girls Night In party was to do it in our pajamas.

Who wants to get dressed up to spend the night with their girls? Why not kick back and relax in the comfort of your home? I’m going to tell you how you can take $200 and turn your Girl’s Night In party into a night that you won’t soon forget. Complete with yummy cocktails, delicious food, and nice swag bags for your guests to take home.

My Girls Night In party was sponsored by T.G.I. Friday’s. They provided me with a gift card to cover the amount of hosting a party in my home while showcasing their ready mixed cocktails. All opinions on this, and subsequent, posts are my own.

  1. Sounds like fun! I can’t wait to hear all about it 🙂 I’m sure you and your company had a blast!

    • Kenesha,

      I know it would have been even better if you were there. I’m working on something for next year so I can get all of the girls together. And I want to give at least a 8 month notice so everyone can prepare and I don’t get to hear any excuses. More details to come. 😉

      Take care,

  4. I love Girls night out. Especially when we sit around and talk about our kids, husbands and what Lifetime movies we have seen. I wish I was at yours.

    • Amanda,

      Oh, don’t worry. We’ll be having our own Girls Night In during the Thanksgiving holiday when I meet my big sister for the first time! I can’t wait. I am already planning out what I’m going to cook.

      Love you!

  5. That sounds like so much fun! I can’t wait to hear about your night!
