HOW TO HOST A PERFECT GAME NIGHT

IMG_2919 Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope everyone had a great NYE and is excited for a kick ass 2015!!

I don't know about you guys, but lately my idea of fun is staying in and watching movies with my man or inviting friends over for drinks and games. We wanted to have a casual pre New Years get together at the house and who better to do it with than 2 of our besties Kim Matula and her fabulous boyfriend Ben Goldberg. Kim and I were on the phone figuring out a fun night and I mentioned doing something like a Hollywood Game Night and brilliant Kim suggested how about just doing Hollywood Game Night?! I had no idea this game even existed. It was completely sold out at Barnes & Noble but I went over to Amazon and got it just in time. Darin and I happen to be super competitive (we always win) but definitely have met our match with Kim and Ben. They kind of kicked our butts. This game is hard!

A great game night does not work without a great cocktail. Our cocktail of the night was Cherry Vodka Martinis. Thanks to Alan Ritchson who introduced me to this drink during our BMS shoot.

Heres how to make it:

  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part sweet & sour mix
  • 1 tbsp grenadine syrup

Or justย mix cherry flavored vodka with sweet & sour mix.

FOOD

Of course chips, salsa and guacamole are always essentials to pick at throughout the night, but for our main course we decided to order in Chinese food. First of all, Asian cuisine is my favorite so I will opt for it any chance I get but the best part about it is variety. There's something for everyone whether you're a vegetarian, pescatarian or will eat anything. Cooking yourself is always appreciated and fun but if you're short on time like we were, ordering in is awesome because it's easy, yummy and there are no dishes to do after too many cherry vodka martinis!

The last requirement for our game night was onesies or Pj's. You want to be comfy and cozy as well as be able to eat and drink as much as you want without having to unbutton your pants or feel fat. You can never feel fat in a onesie!!

We had so much fun! There is nothing better than silly times with your friends. What are some of the things you guys like to do for fun? Any fun group games you can suggest? Let me know in the comments below!

Love always,
