What you need to throw a fabulous sleepover?
Let’s be honest, the idea of 5+ kids sleeping over is a DREAM party!!!! However, for mom, anxiety can easily set in. What will they eat? Where will they sleep? How do I keep these kids entertained for double/triple the time of a normal party? There seems to be a zillion things that need to go into executing the epic, unforgettable sleepover that will give kids something to talk about for weeks on end (and we know how much they like to talk)!
Don’t fret, we’ve made it easy for you! Here’s what to do:
- Choose a theme!
Having a planned theme gives the night an instant boost of unique energy. It also makes your sleepover way more memorable. A theme will anchor your sleepover so that picking invitations, decorations, activities and even food will be easier! Here are some popular sleepover themes:
(3) Tents or sleeping bags? Glamping with tents is all the rave!
Tents will transform your “regular sleepover” into an “epic and magical sleepover experience”. Now that you have a theme, it’s time to choose tents and decor that will bring life to it! Choosing a company that provides tents as well as bedding, pillows and tent decor will simplify your life.
especially a themed one because it will be sure to impress your guests and your pictures will be fabulous! The table doesn’t have to be huge, what’s important here is creativity and the WOW factor! Choose a cake or cupcakes, you likely won’t need both. Cakepops and cakesicles are both popular and easy to add toyour theme. Rice Krispy treats, candied apples, chocolate covered pretzels and strawberries are all good options. Popcorn is a MUST, I mean what’s a sleepover without popcorn?
You can’t send the kids home the next morning hungry!! So, yes, you need to add breakfast to your menu. Breakfast is the perfect opportunity to infuse your theme into food! How about some unicorn pancakesor a mermaid waffle bar?
