So you’re all grown up now, you’re no longer wearing braces and you’ve had more than your fair share of crushes. But that doesn’t mean that the ancient and revered tradition of the sisterhood’s pyjama party needs to stop… In fact it only gets more fun the older you get! So grab your pals and enjoy the following tips for having the best adult pyjama party!
The first thing you’ll need, obviously, is pyjamas. Get out your cute penguin-covered pair, your adorable onesies, or just t-shirt and undies if that’s how you roll. Nothing brings women closer emotionally than getting uncomfortably physically close to each other in their sleeping attire. Just kidding, it’s loads of fun, and it seriously makes you feel like sisters, complete with the warm, fuzzy feelings!
2. Sleeping masks
No one likes to be woken by the light at 6am (thanks Spring! Thanks a lot!). Equally, no one likes to be woken by the flashing lights of their friends’ phones as they shoot texts and update Facebook late at night after everyone agreed to go to sleep at a sensible time. Sleeping masks are therefore essential. Perhaps add some earplugs too if you’re a light sleeper and/or you or your friends snore heavily.
3. Teddy bears
Because of course! You can cuddle them, play pretend games, and have teddy bear tea parties! Also they make great snuggle partners at night.
4. Springy mattress
To jump up and down on and deliver moving renditions of Eye of the Tiger. You know when your parents told you not to jump up and down on the bed? Well now you’re an adult, so you can! Yay, freedom, yay Rocky!
5. Lots of pillows
Preferably feather pillows that have been pre-cut a little bit so that feathers go everywhere when you have a pillow fight. You can just imagine it right now, can’t you? Classic.
6. Decaf mochas
You can’t have hot chocolate if you’re an adult, duh! Instead, subject yourself to a decaf mocha, the adult equivalent of hot chocolate. Decaf so that you don’t stay up half the night listening to the snores and dream-whispers of your friends. Unless that is your plan… to find out everyone’s secrets by listening to them talk in their sleep!
7. Bake cookies together
Now that you’re an adult and can properly work an oven, why not bake some cookies together? And then eat them warm with some milk or that decaf mocha! Mmm chocolate chip cookies…!
8. Read feminist books to each other
When you were young you may have read ghost stories to each other. Now that you’re an adult, you know that gender inequality and sexism are the true monsters of our society! Scary stuff!
9. Watch and recreate Grease
The pyjama party scene!
