Whether you meet them in high school, in college, at work, or you’ve known them as long as you can remember, your best friends are what help shape who you are. Make it a point to get together with your best friends every so often to remember just how much you mean to one another. Whether it’s for a birthday party, a bachelorette party, bridal showers, or a variety of other reasons, girls’ nights out are great ways to show your friends how much you appreciate them.
Show your support for your best friend before she gets married by throwing her a bachelorette party to remember! Planning a night on the town for your bestie and her closest friends doesn’t always require decorations, but it definitely requires fun party favors. The easiest and smartest favor to give to the guests is a personalized water bottle so all the girls can stay hydrated. A wine bottle with a personalized label can also make for a great souvenir for your bride-to-be—she’ll be able to hold onto the bottle for a long time. You can’t forget the light-up engagement rings for all the girls to wear!
You can also plan a bridal shower to remember with a few creative details. Bridal showers are typically more about the bride than anything, but look for a cute picture of your bestie and her future husband and have it made into a life-sized cardboard standee. Depending on your venue and theme, some of the same favors can work for a bridal shower as well as a bachelorette party. Personalize bottle labels, for instance, would be a cute touch to add to the wine, water, and pop bottle at the bridal shower as well as a favor for the bachelorette party.
Happy Birthday, Bestie!
When the time rolls around to plan the perfect birthday party for your best friend, go all-out. Plan the birthday bash of the year, making it all about your bestie! Start by choosing the venue you want for your bestie’s birthday party. Whether you want to hold the party at your house, your bestie’s house, or rent a venue, you can make a variety of decorations work in a variety of places.
Start with a banner, personalized for your best friend. Whether in a house or a rented venue, a banner will be a good signal to party guests of where the party’s at! Regardless of your venue, you have two options for your theme—you can either create a party theme around your bestie or you can pick a theme that seems to fit her personality. Once you have a theme chosen for your best friend, start planning activities or fun favors for everyone to take part in. For example, pick a giant birthday card to personalize and have all the guests sign it, either before the party (if it’s a surprise party) or throughout the night.
Show your best friend that they mean the world to you every day—not just on their birthday or at their bachelorette party or bridal shower. Best friends are a great part of life and a huge influence in who we become—give them a time to say “it’s all about me!”
