How to Plan a Creative Girls Night Out

Every year, hundreds of groups of women join us at Pinspiration for their Girls Nights Out – we pretty much have it down to a science! Are you looking for unique, creative ideas for girls night out activities? Have no fear, because today we will be breaking down how to plan and make the most out of your ladies’ night. Here are some things to consider for a night you and your friends will never forget.

Find Unique Food and Drink

Delicious food is usually part of an amazing night out. Rather than going to your usual local restaurant, try something different! Pick up a couple tacos at a local food truck, invite your ladies to a potluck before your activity, or pack some finger food to eat in the park.

A fun Girls Night Out does not require alcohol. However, if you and your besties feel like enjoying some drinks, make the experience special. Pinspiration’s Drinks and Bites menu, for example, has a variety of options to get your creative juices flowing. Try fun drinks like Cupcake-Prosecco or a “Red Velvet” red wine.

Choose a Main Activity

Now, this is the fun part! Your activity is completely customizable to you and your friends’ interests and hobbies. Stereotypical Girls Night Out activities include clubbing, dancing, and bar-hopping. These classic excursions are popular for a reason, but we encourage you to mix things up! You can even create a theme for the night. Want to learn a new dance style? Have a Latin night with your gals! Go out for tacos and some Sangria, and then finish the night off with a salsa dance class at a local dance studio.

If you’re bored of the traditional ladies night out festivities, you might try something even more unconventional. Use online tools such as Groupon, Yelp, or TripAdvisor to get inspiration. Simply search for activities or events going on in your city and blast a few options over to your besties to vote on. An active alternative to dancing could be an 80’s rollerblading night. Want a more relaxed evening? Try a sunset riverboat cruise, or go listen to a local band perform. If you’re in the mood for something more creative, a crafting night at Pinspiration or a jewelry making class are great options.

Manage Cost

Let’s discuss the elephant in the room: A Girls Night Out can be expensive! From food and drink to activity costs, the last thing you want to do is overspend. However, there are ways you can still have a unique, memorable night on a budget. To avoid falling down the money pit, the first thing you need to do is sit your girls down and discuss your priorities. For example, if you all really want to attend an expensive show but are on a budget, maybe make dinner at home together before you go out. Don’t let the name “Girls Night Out” deceive you – not every aspect of the night needs to be out on the town!

Another thing to look out for is cost-effective activities. Search for bundle packages and activities that are discounted for large groups. Many companies (including Pinspiration!) offer all-inclusive bundles. Our Paint-n-Sip bundle not only includes a canvas for each person in your party to paint but also comes with drinks and bites to eat. Options like these more cost-effective – and can be a lot of fun as well!

Create Memorabilia!

Pinspiration Splatter Experience

The best part of a Girls Night Out is the unique opportunity to create memories and strengthen friendships. It’s great to have something to remember your night by – even if it’s just some photos! If you want to take it one step further and have a tangible memento, activities such as crafting are perfect.

For example, at Pinspiration, you and your ladies can create your own artistic masterpieces. Whether it be a craft from the main studio, or a splatter canvas you all worked on together in the Splatter Room, there are so many options to choose from.




When it comes to a Girls Night Out, the possibilities are endless. Be creative, be active, blow off some steam…. and most importantly: have fun! Whichever route you take, you and your ladies are guaranteed to look back fondly on the night you shared together.
