Night In: Ideas to Bring on the Laughs

By  | 

Summer is supposed to be kick-back time. So how about a girls’ night in party for some goofy fun? I’ve got a great idea for a party theme: laughter! I’m a sucker for those personality tests you see in magazines that supposedly tell you about your hidden assets and motivators and I know I’m not the only one who semi-secretly enjoys them. So how about pulling one (or more!) of those together and having all your besties take them? First everybody has to take the test for herself—but don’t tell the results. Next, write every guest’s name on a slip of paper and put it in a hat. Extra points if it’s a cute hat. Everybody draws the name of someone else and takes the test again, using all of her female insight and intuition to answer as she thinks her person would respond. Compare the results. And laugh.


Then do the SunChips Laughalizer test. I’ve never seen a laughalizer test before now but it sounds like a good party idea!

Sun Chips

According to SunChips® , a laugh is one-of-a-kind and it represents the most unfiltered expression of personality. Even in a crowd, the sound of your laughter sets you apart from everyone else. This is how it works: SunChips’ distinct wavy shape is as unique as a fingerprint…or a laugh. They developed Laughalizer, a first-of-its-kind technology that analyzes laughter to highlight personality and generate a “laugh-print” that can be shared across social media. When you share your laugh-print and profile, SunChips® will donate $1 to Step Up, an organization devoted to instilling confidence and empowering the next generation of professional women. (Learn more here.)

SunChips®  launched their Waves of Laughter campaign to generate 100,000 waves of laughter, and hopefully, $100,000 to support girls who will be the next generation of professional women.

This kind of a party can be Big Girl cool and pretty, or laid-back silly and fun. Just remember to have some great snacks and a refreshing signature drink. This avocado ranch dip tastes awesome with every flavor of SunChips wholegrain snacks!
