Game On!

Host Girls Game Night in 4 Easy Steps!

Getting together with girlfriends is a guaranteed good time. In four easy steps, Keri of Shaken Together kicks it up a notch and turns this cherished time into a delicious game night.

  1. Pick a game

    How about a classic game of 3-13 (it's one of our favorite card games), a popular board game or even better, Liar’s Dice? Liar’s Dice is a fun game of dice, bluffing and some good laughs!

  2. Pick a night

    Whether you kick the guys and kids out on a weeknight or schedule girls game night on a Saturday, pick a night that works for the majority and invite everyone early enough to secure sitters and clear schedules.

  3. Pick a theme/color scheme

    Since we would be playing a dice game, I decided to use black and white with pops of polka dots to mimic the dice. This would work for a night of dominoes, too. For card games, black, white and red is a classic color scheme. For board games, select a few prominent colors and highlight those with paper goods like plates, napkins, silverware, cups, etc.

    Bonus tip: Buy white serving pieces for entertaining! My white serving pieces (cake stands, platters, bowls, trays, etc.) are my go-to for parties, big holiday dinners and entertaining. You can easily add pops of color with paper goods and other decor.

  4. Pick simple food

    Bite-sized, individual portions and handheld foods are the perfect food to serve for a casual, low-key girls game night.
