Do you prioritize girl time, or are you lucky to squeeze some in on rare occasions? Maybe you’re like me and you try be good at scheduling time, but most often end up falling into the latter category.
One thing I try to do sorta semi-regularly is schedule girls movie nights with some of the younger ladies I know. Maybe I see it as my job to introduce them to films they might not check out on their own. Maybe it makes me feel younger. Mostly, I like the chance to watch some of my favorites again.
And it only breaks my heart a little when they don’t love a movie as much as I do. (Gone With the Wind, I’ll always love you).
Besides the films themselves, I do love a party with a theme. Finding snacks to fit the theme of the movie makes it even more fun. Ice cream floats for Titanic or Argentinian empanadas and alfajores for Evita… a themed menu creates special memories.
Alfajores are decadent dulce de leche filled sandwich cookies you don’t want to miss
Girls Movie Night
Many of these we’ve watched already, others are on my list for future gatherings. And some are ones that I know my group of girls wouldn’t like but I still love. Some of these may have content that you don’t find appropriate. You have a few options:
* Record the movie when it comes on a TV channel that edits films (AMC, for example)
*Stream it through VidAngel, which lets you filter the movie yourself
*If you’re familiar with the movie, you can mute or skip scenes yourself

We organized movie marathons for my boys and their friends that were a big hit. If you’re interested in Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, check these out!
