Sleepovers are a ball, but if you’ve got a competitive streak, stressing about whether your friends are going to enjoy it can be draining. But betty girls are always a step ahead, right? Right. With these finishing touches and super snacks from Joe & Seph’s, you can make sure that your sleepover goes down in history as the crème de la crème of girlie gatherings.
Prep your room for a party
Start prepping a week ahead to avoid any last-minute pre-sleepover panics. It’s important to feel comfortable in your space, so tidy up a bit – you could even give your bedroom a mini makeover. If you’re planning on watching a film, throw down some big pillows, beanbags, rugs or whatever you can find to get comfy on.
Let Joe & Seph’s take care of the snacks
You could spend ages making all types of fancy snacks, but if you want to skip the big kitchen clean-up, indulge your girls with all natural air-popped popcorn coated in decadent toppings from Joe & Seph’s. From all-time faves like Salted Caramel to on-trend Coconut and Chia Seed Popcorn – there are over 50 flavours to choose from – salty, sweet or spicy – there’s one to delight every type of betty girl.
Get creative with cute crafts
As we get older, we spend less time making things and getting arty and more time staring at the screens of our mobiles. Making cool stuff together is good for the soul and a great way to bond with your girlies. Gel candles, jewellery, rainbow soap – there’s a whole world of arts and crafts out there to explore. Why not try one of these summer-inspired DIYs?
Movies with popcorn hot chocolate
A good movie is crucial to a successful sleepover. If you’re stuck for ideas, pick one of these five movies about inspiring women. If you’re more of a Disney kinda girl, there are some great new releases hitting screens in 2018 – get ready by re-watching the prequels at your sleepover. To complement your movie time, treat your friends to this hot chocolate and chilli choc popcorn recipe.
Play the ‘What’s your flavour?’ game
There are classics like Monopoly, the Post-it game and Twister, and then there are more random games, like this one we made up! Sit in a circle with one person taking it in turns to go in the middle – the person in the middle will need to wear a blindfold (mum’s scarf will do). Treat your bestie to one of the weird and wacky flavours from Joe & Seph’s, like Olive Oil, Mozzarella and Tomato or Madras Curry and see if they can guess which flavours they’re tasting.
Give out goody bags
Remember when you were little and you used to get an awesome party bag when you left your friend’s birthday party? That sure was one tasty way to soften the blow when the fun was over! To add a retro touch, make party bags for your girls – they’ll love you for it and the treats inside will be a little reminder of all the laughs that you shared. Fill them with sweets, make-up and pampering essentials – you can even customise them to suit each of your friends’ personalities.
Joe & Seph’s is a family-owned business and all their scrummy popcorn is made with love in the UK. They’ve been voted Best Tasting Popcorn Brand and have received a whopping 34 Great Taste Awards.
