Have a girl's night in with Melrose Place
September 08, 2009
If you can't wait for the next Sex and the City film but are craving a girlie night full of gossip and high fashion, it might be time to have the ladies over to catch the new episodes of Melrose Place.
For the clueless, the television drama focuses around the gorgeous, high-society scandals, schemes and romances of an exclusive California-based crowd. Lavish clothes and hairstyles abound in the show, so bring your girls together for fashion gossip, sweet little snacks and a posh drink or two.
Invite everyone over well before the show starts with the promise to bring (or wear) a high-fashion item of clothing or a new magazine. Gather together in the kitchen and feel free to shamelessly chat about the latest styles and celebrity shockers - really let yourselves go!
Finger foods are key, so whip up some tasty appetizers like shrimp wrapped in bacon, bite-sized grilled cheese sandwiches, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and mini spinach quiches.
Try your hand at making and serving California Cocktails, with or without alcohol, and have fun blending together interesting flavors. Invite your friends to make their own smoothies by presenting a range of juices and a touch of decadent ice cream.
Finally, make the living room as relaxing as possible with plenty of cushions and candles for guests.
