It’s cold guys. So grab your squad and get together to have an adult sleepover that will make 14 year old you jealous.


Well you could just message people or organise a Facebook event but if you have a little bit more money why not design your very own invites.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Buy some cheap white pillow cases (Tesco’s do two for £1.65) and some fabric pens.
  2. Place some cardboard inside each case (to avoid staining).
  3. On each pillow write the date, time, location and whether or not guests need to bring anything else. Also ask them to bring their pillow case.
  4. Then get together and decorate each other’s pillows (it’s a lot cheaper than a goody bag).

Greeting the guests

Every good party has drinks on arrival and the humble sleepover is no exception. Here’s are some little mocktail/cocktails ideas for your guests to drink.

The Milk and Cookie Mocktail

You will need:

1 glass for each guest (4 for £1.50 from Tesco).
Lollypop sticks (from your local craft shop).
2 plates.


  • Rainbow Sprinkles.
  • Honey
  • Milk
  • Cookie dough as per your favourite recipe (If you haven’t got a favourite recipe, I have one from a previous article here.)

What to do:

  1. Pour the rainbow sprinkles on one plate and the honey on another.
  2. Next take each glass, dip it into the honey and then the rainbow sprinkles until they coat the rim.
  3. Leave the glasses upside whilst you make the cookies.
  4. When you shape your balls of cookie dough, you want them to be about 1 inch (2.5cms) in size.
  5. Next stick a lollypop stick in the centre of each cookie dough ball, ensuring that the stick is covered at all times.
  6. Now bake the cookies as per your chosen recipes.
  7. Whilst your cookies are cooling, turn your glasses the correct way and put aside.
  8. When your guests arrive, fill each glass with milk and balance a cookie on the rim of the glass.

The Fat Frog

This is for those who plan on drinking as soon as they arrive. It’s cheap, drinkable and very quick to prepare.

You will need:


  • Smirnoff Ice
  • WKD Blue
  • Orange Bacardi Breezer

Simply add a third of each to the pitcher jug and allow your guests to help themselves.

The Activities

Have a wine tasting party with a twist

Let’s be honest a majority of adult related gatherings feature wine. Moreover, there is a high probability that there will be some sort of take-away during the night. So why not combine the two?

Simply log onto the Wine and take out pairing app (yes it’s real and it’s glorious) and select what take-away meal you’re having, whether you prefer red or white wine and then watch as the app recommends your perfect wine.

Play loaded

Loaded is a brilliant game in which you get to know your guest’s deepest secrets. You need at least 5 people (including yourself), some sticky notes, pens, some paper for each person and a hat.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Give everyone 5 sticky notes then take 5 for yourself.
  2. Next get everyone to write one question on each piece of paper. However you must be willing to answer the question yourself. Some good examples of questions are: ‘what is your all-time favourite film?’, ‘what language would you most like to learn?’, ‘what was your favourite cartoon growing up?’
  3. Next put all of the questions in a hat and give everyone an A4 piece of paper to keep score and some more paper to write on.
  4. The first person then selects a question from the hat and reads it to the rest of the group.
  5. Everyone else must then write down their HONEST answer and hand it in to the person who is on the left-hand side of the person who asked the question. This person keeps their answer with the others.
  6. The person who is on the left-hand side of the question person must then read out each of the answers.
  7. The question person must now guess who said each answer.
  8. For each correct answer they guess, the question person gets a point which they can record on their score sheet.
  9. The person who read out the answers previously then selects a question and reads it out.
  10. Steps 5-8 are now repeated.
  11. Steps 9-10 are now repeated until all of the questions have been read out.

Whoever has the most points at the end is the winner.


Who doesn’t love ‘singing’ to some of their favourite songs during a sleepover? We now have all sorts of apps for karaoke joys but if you can’t access those for whatever reason, simply download Spotify on the PC and click the lyrics button. Now let me just grab my hair brush.

Watch some Disney films

The great thing about Disney films is that there just so many. I personally have to watch The Little Mermaid or Big Hero 6 but everyone has their favourites.

The Food 

No sleepover is complete without a variety of delicious edible goodies. Here are some of my recommendations:


Every student has at least one discount code for this place. All you have to do is order and then sit back and relax until they arrive. Then enjoy having a night without washing up.

Healthy option

Because it’s that time of the year where everyone wants to be healthy, I also have a couple of recipes for more healthier snacks:

Sexy Salad Platter


  • Bell peppers (in a variety of colours)
  • Carrots
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
  • Slices of cold meat
  • Pot of salsa (to dip)

Simply cut all of the veg into strips and arrange on a plate with the cold meat. Then place the salsa in the middle and enjoy.

Super Sweet Platter


  • A variety of fruit of your choice (the more the merrier)
  • About 6-8 tablespoons of low fat yogurt
  • ½-1 teaspoon of chocolate spread

Simply arrange the fruit on a plate. Then mix the chocolate spread and yogurt together in a bowl and serve immediately.

The sleeping

When you have drank, ate and partied until exhaustion, simply channel these kitty cats and sleep.
