Relax and Watch Some Classics with Your Closest Friends
Nothing is quite as relaxing as having a girls’ night in the comfort of your own home, especially if one of you recently went through a bad break up (or, more happily) got a major promotion or launched a new start up. Here are some tips to use your home theater (in conjunction with some well-placed snacks, of course) to create a Facebook-brag-worthy night of laughs, wine, gossip and chick flicks.
1. Get the right equipment.
Before you send out the evite, make sure your home theater system will impress your friends and keep them entertained all night without glitching out. It could be as simple as a “smart” flat-screen TV with Netflix capabilities; or as decadent as a projector, plethora of seating, and killer audio system with surround sound. If you’d rather not take on this task by yourself, consult a company that specializes in Bay Area home theater installation.
2. Pick the right movie or TV series to binge-watch.
Before your friends come over, select flicks everyone will enjoy. Timeless classics include Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, The Notebook, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Don’t feel obligated to conform to gender stereotypes, of course! Guardians of the Galaxy or even an Adam Sandler comedy (Blended is great!) might be a fun twist. Or watch the second season of Transparent or a few episodes of the new season of Downton Abbey.
3. Do a test run.
Check to make sure everything is working properly at least a week before the big event. Adjust your levels, and troubleshoot technical issues. Learn how to use all your remotes and download the movies or shows you’ll be watching.
4. Don’t forget the wine and popcorn.
A girls’ night just isn’t the same without a bottle of wine (or two). And what’s a movie night without popcorn? Be sure to have both on hand before your besties arrive.
