Mom's are constantly giving and giving to everyone and usually forget to that's important to take care of themselves every once and a while in order to rejuvenate and recuperate. This is the reason why the National Mom's Night Out was formed....to encourage moms to take a night out for themselves.
The entire month of May is focused on celebrating motherhood with Mom's Night Out on May 6th and Mother's Day on May 9th. The Womentorz blog will be a providing great ideas on products and activities to make these holidays the most celebratory as possible.
This day and age it makes more sense to throw a Girl's Night Out at your own home. You don't have to worry about your girlfriends driving around having had too much to drink and it's much less expensive than hitting the town. Having said that, having a good old fashioned slumber party would be a great way to celebrate safely. Here's an example of what elements this party could have:
The plan: Lounge in your PJs, eat comfort food, take in a new or classic chick flick, and gab until dawn. Each guest arrives with (or in) her comfiest jammies and a sleeping bag.
The food: Take-out pizza (and lots of it), popcorn and assorted munchies. For dessert, create a sundae bar, with several flavors of ice cream, sauces, nuts, M&Ms, sprinkles, marshmallow topping, whipped cream, cherries… you get the idea. Surprise the girls later with a chocolate and reaspberry cheesecake.
The drinks: Fun blender drinks. Try frozen pineapple daiquiris, melon margaritas and pina coladas – if you can get your hands on two or three blenders, all the better. Remember to have lots of ice!
Here are some great gifts and products to make the event even more fun:
