The girls are coming over to catch up on our favorite TV show, enjoy a few snacks and spend some quality time together. I’m in the midst of preparing everything for our fun girls night in. The guys have other plans and it’s just us girls tonight. Yippee!

Planning a Girls Night In? I'm sharing my favorite tips and tricks PLUS my famous Spicy Pecans.

Here’s How I Program a Fun Girls Night In

Let’s Get Comfy

Comfort is key when hosting a viewing party for a fun girls night out. Yoga pants, tees, and other casual wear will make the best-dressed list for this get-together. Add more than a few pillows and throws for a warm and inviting place to kick back and catch up on your favorite TV show.

My husband says I have way too many pillows on the sofa. I counter with the fact that you can never have too many pretty pillows.

Someone is bound to get a few chill bumps while we’re watching the grand finale so I’m always prepared.

Stock Up on Everyone’s Favorite Beverages

When my girls come over, I make sure and have everyone’s favorite Coca-Cola beverage on hand. For me, it’s DASANI Water. Caitlin must have her SmartWater. Rebekah is all about that Diet Coke.

I keep all of our Coca-Cola beverages in an ice bucket on the coffee table. That way, everything is within arm’s reach so we can pause for a moment, but never miss the action. Plus, the ice keeps all the beverages well chilled.

Of course, during Girls Night In, we talk about as much as we watch the movie. That’s what the pause button is for.

Have Your Favorite Snacks on Hand For Your Fun Girls Night In

One of our favorite snacks for Girls Night is Spicy Pecans. I always have plenty of pecans in my freezer because I get them from my dad’s pecan orchard in Georgia. They’re the best in the world!

How To Make Spicy Pecans

Combine melted butter, seasoned salt, hot sauce, and Worcestershire Sauce.

Whenever I have my girlfriends over for movie night, good snacks are a MUST. I think they would be mad at me if I didn’t have any LOL.

This would be fun! I love spicy foods so I’d enjoy these nuts. And I always love my coke. Diet Coke is what helps keep me friendly.

I tried making some similar pecans once but I burnt them lol. I can’t wait to try yours and hopefully I will be more attentive while I’m making them. I’d love to serve these on our movie night.

I love spicy pecans. I always get them from a local pecan farmer’s produce stand, but I should make my own.

I miss pecans! Used to love eating butter pecan ice cream while watching a movie at home. Kids are allergic to them now though and can’t have any products with them in the house anymore 🙁 This spicy pecans recipe looks really good!

My best friends live far from me, so it is rare that I get this opportunity for a girls night in. However, I can still have something like this for family movie night. That would be fun too. I will also share this post with my cousin. She and her besties live only a few houses from each other so they can have a movie night in like this every week if they so desire.
