Girl Code Party: Inexpensive Party Themes

Girl Code Party. Girls Night! Fun and frugal.
We have held many different events at several Donna Members' homes and we ALWAYS have a good time. One of our latest events was another themed night in: Girl Code. Many members were familiar with the show and were excited to participate in our own variation of it. If you've never seen Girl Code on MTV click here. It's about women speaking on women issues and having a few laughs at the beautiful thing we call womanhood. 

Girl Code party topics. Printed on notecardsI looked up several topics that were discussed on the actual show and added a few of my own topics. I wanted to create a way to get everyone to participate (especially the shy ones) so I printed each topic off on 4 x 6 notecards and added some follow up questions in case no one knew where to start with the conversation. 

I then placed each card into an envelope and numbered them 1-25. When guests arrived, they chose 2 envelopes at random, and whoever had the next number had to pull out their card and read it aloud. 

Some topics were lighthearted like "Girl Code on Purses" while others were a little more risque "Girl Code on Masturbation." You have to plan for the type of crowd you'll have and I knew we had an even mix of reserved ladies and some that were more extroverted. You also want to choose more generic topics to be sure most can relate to. 

I would recommend that you use a timer if your event has a time constraint. We tended to be VERY long winded and everyone wanted to contribute which is great because you want participation. However when 45 minutes has passed and you've only discussed 2 topics, it's time to start stepping up the pace lol. I'd recommend 8 minutes per topic. Luckily, we had nowhere to really be so we were okay. 

When having a conversational type of event, I feel it is best to serve finger foods and appetizers. No need to cook a mighty meal unless you want your guests to talk with their mouth full. 
Cheap appetizers and finger foods are best for conversational events. Here's a list of what we served:
Wine Tags on glasses helps everyone keep track of their drink!Wine Glass display.
  •  Pigs in a blanket
  • 3 dips: Salsa Con Queso with Ground Beef with round tortilla chips, Shredded Chicken Fajita with fajita scoops tortilla chips, and Fruit Salsa with cinnamon pita chips.
  • Veggie Platter with grape tomatoes, celery, and carrots.
  • Spinach Wheels
  • Cream Puffs 
Everything was perfect and we had enough food for ladies to fill up on with multiple trips to the food table. 

Everyone was told to bring their own choice of drink, which is the PennyDonna Way (if you have a little, Donnas have a lot!). Most brought wine and some brought juice. You always want to have bottled water on hand as well. I labeled each wine glass with names so there wouldn't be any mix ups. I really like the set up I did with the wine glasses. Just something simple but made it feel more like an event. 

And that was that ladies! We had a great time and laughed so hard at some of the answers we came up with. It's a great ice breaker event for new people to learn a little more about personalities. Very relatable, fun, and simple! You can always add your own flair and make it as big or as little as you want. I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Please leave a message below if you want recipes, how to print on notecards, or what Girl Code topics we used!
