Recipe for the Best Girls' Night In

Date nights are fun and all, but nothing can beat a good girls’ night. There’s just something special about being surrounded with your people. As we head into the cooler months, doing outdoor activities starts to get more difficult and getting cozy indoors starts to take priority. Luckily, just because you may not want to go out, it doesn’t mean girls’ night has to be boring. We’ve done the research and know exactly what will make a girls’ night in just as memorable as a girls’ night out. It may even be a night all the girls’ will be talking about for years to come, or turn into a seasonal staple. You just need three essentials: candles, drinks, and food.

Candle: Pumpkin + Persimmon

It should come as no surprise to you that for a fall girls’ night, you need to have our best-selling fall candle: Pumpkin + Persimmon. With notes of pumpkin, allspice, clove, brown sugar, and vanilla, it is the epitome of fall scents, making it perfect for a fall night inside. The wooden wick crackles the entire burn and is reminiscent of a fireplace going in the background, adding to the ultimate cozy feel. After all, a girls’ night in should be all about staying comfy, cozy, and creating the best space to recharge and catch up with friends.

Drinks: Mulled Wine

One does not simply have a girls’ night without drinks. That’s why we suggest this Mulling Spice Bundle by Tennessee Homemade Wines. The bundle allows you to create your own mulled wine for the night, complete with 2 bottles of Old Apple, 2 bottles of Southern Red, and 2 packages of Tennessee Homemade Wines’ signature mulling spices. The bundle comes with instructions for making your own mulled wine, but they also encourage you to get a little crazy with it and come up with your own special mix!

Food: Cookies

Honestly, is it even a successful girls’ night without copious amounts of cookies? We think not. But don’t worry, if you’re not a baker, Celebrations in the Kitchen has you covered. This company sends you pre-made goodies and all the tools, frosting, and sprinkles you need to decorate them appropriately. From full-on cake masterpieces to adorable cookies, Celebrations in the Kitchen has exactly what you need. We highly recommend the Grateful Thanksgiving Cookie Decorating Kit, complete with Thanksgiving-themed cookies, vanilla icing, and sprinkle mixes to help you and your girlfriends create cookies so cute you won’t want to eat them (in that case, just send them on over to us *wink wink*).

Girls’ nights are as quintessential to fall as crisp leaves and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. During this limbo period between Halloween and Christmas, many people tend to forget about Thanksgiving altogether, but we know how important it is to express gratitude for your girlfriends and family. We think there’s no better way to do that than by having the ultimate girls’ night in, and the best way to do that is to make sure you have all the aforementioned goodies on hand!
