Throw an epic end-of-summer sleepover

As the sunny season starts to come to a close, it’s time to squeeze in as much summery fun as you can! Take advantage of these last weeks with an epic end-of-summer-sleepover. With awesome activities and a few adorable deets, your live-in-the-moment-themed bash is sure to be a blast.

Pre-party prep

When you invite your BFFs to your bash, ask them each to bring a list of must-do summer stuff they haven’t done yet. When your guests are all gathered, pick your faves together and go for it! From water balloon fights to finally seeing that flick, you and your besties will cross off the last few things on your seasonal bucket list.

Serve up scoops

Just like summer, this treat is sweet, but disappearing fast. Plus, ice cream is a classic symbol of the season. Hit up the grocery store for a bunch of make-your-own sundae ingredients, and indulge!

Blast back-to-school beats

Put on a playlist stuffed with school-themed jams. Try out tracks like “We’re Gonna Be Friends” by The White Stripes, “Campus” by Vampire Weekend and “Fifteen” by Taylor Swift. You’ll love the tunes, and they’ll get you pumped for the year to come.

Make the memories last

Print all your fave pics of the fun you had in the sun, and create super cute collages. Combine your summer shots with mag cutouts of shades, shorts and frozen sweets. When classes get you down, the mash-up of memories will make ya smile.

Sleep under the stars

When fall rolls around, it’ll be way too chilly for outdoor snoozing. Who wouldn’t want to doze off to the sweet scent of flowers and the gorge glow of fireflies? So grab some sleeping bags, head to the backyard and enjoy the perfect warmth of a summer night. Don’t forget the bug spray!
