The “6″ List: GNO (or GNI) Ideas!

GNO (or GNI) Ideas!




GNO (Girls Night Out) or GNI (Girls Night In) is so important for moms!  We NEED our girls and some adult conversation and a chance to vent.  Am I right?  What to do, where to go?  Always the question. I thought about it and wanted to share some of my ideas  on today’s The “6″ List.

  1. “Slumber Party”- Dress up in PJs for an evening with friends, spend a few hours playing games like “Truth or Dare”, eating popcorn and pizza, drinking wine and gossiping. Even better, have it at a hotel and rent a room!  Room service anyone?
  2. Fancy Tea Party – Find a local tea house that serves a full assortment of tea and goodies.  My local tea room is The Blue Willow Tea Room.  Dress up, do your hair and nails and spend a fancy afternoon having a “grown up” tea party! Even better, invite your moms!
  3. Sports Night - Dress up in your favorite team jersey, have a “game food” potluck and watch the game!  Girls love sport too :-) Even better, head out to a local sports bar or even go to see the game live!
  4. White Elephant Party-  Best with a minimum of 6 guests but the more the merrier! Set a limit on the amount to spend on the gift.  In its most basic form, the gameplay is as follows: Each participant supplies one wrapped gift. Participants determine in what order they will take turns choosing gifts. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. The second person then chooses whether to open a wrapped gift or “steal” a previously opened gift. If a person has his gift stolen, he also has the option of choosing a wrapped gift or stealing an unwrapped one. When a wrapped gift is opened, the turn ends. When all gifts have been unwrapped, the game ends.  Even better, theme the gifts!  Add potluck or do this at a restaurant.  
  5. Book Club-  Always good for book lovers!  Organize a monthly meeting, get together and pick a book list and questions and get started. Hold the meeting a different house each month and have a potluck. Even better, make the menu and decorations themed for each book! 
  6. Bunco- Organize a monthly game!  Host at a different house each month, door prizes, food and dress themed!  80′s night, pirate night, pick a color to wear, the themes are endless. 

What are YOUR favorite ideas for a GNO or GNI?

Live, Love & Learn,
