Switch up your GNO routine for a GNI—Girls Night In. If funds are scarce for both your party and home décor budgets, invite your girlfriends over for a get-together that will satisfy both needs. Bond over crafting and cocktails instead of the usual (and expensive) night out on the town. Everyone will go home happy with at least one new piece of art for their apartments. You’ll surprise yourself and your friends with your DIY artistry!
EAT WHILE YOU MAKE A BULLETIN BOARD
A no-fail girls night always start with the best potluck apps. As the hostess, serve crackers and cheese, veggies and dip or one of these no-mess finger foods to keep your hands free for your first project—a statement piece perfect for livening up an office space.
The Two Twenty One blog’s tutorial for Faux Nail Head Trimmed Cork Board transforms a large corkboard. Or, for party purposes, get smaller-sized boards from your local craft store—still cute! A ton of gold pushpins and a big piece of cheapie or recycled fabric are the only other supplies you need for this glamorous inspiration board.
