6 Bring a Board Night Ideas for Your Next Girl’s Night In

Tired of the usual girl dates? Add some spice with TikTok’s favourite: ‘Bring a Board’ night. If you’re wondering what this could be, it’s a simple but amazing concept where everyone brings their own board of snacks based on a particular theme.Want to be fancy with cheese and meats? Go for it. Want to create a cosy, kid-inspired dinner of turkey dinosaurs and potato smileys? We don’t blame you!   

To guide you through the excitement, we’ve put together six creative ‘Bring a Board’ night ideas as well as the outfit inspo you need to go with them. 

Bring a Board Night theme: Serving rainbows

If you’re looking for Bring a Board themes that are fit for the gram, the most obvious choice is colour…

Yellow boards look super tempting filled with crisps, crackers, biscuits, and citrus fruit (all low-effort snacks, yay!). Meanwhile, red boards are eye-catching with strawberries, chocolates, and cans of pop.

Colour is a great theme as you can prepare just by running to the shop ten minutes before your friends get to you. This also gives you plenty of time to craft the perfect outfit. 

Choose a killer co-ord or block colour dress. You can also match materials rather than just colours…  We’d recommend the Distressed Blue Denim Cropped Jacket and matching High Waist Distressed Mini Skirt in Blue Denim for a look that’s casual but oh so cool.

Bring a board night theme: Cultural comforts

Tea and biscuits… Beyonce and Jay Z… Your favourite comfort food cuisine and some equally comfy loungewear. There are some truly iconic duos! 

Love Chinese food? Create a board of egg-fried rice, sweet and sour chicken, and veggie spring rolls. Obsessed with Italian? Put slices of pizza between heaped bowls of pasta for carb heaven.  

As for outfits, you could go for the classic loungewear co-ords, or throw on a knitted jumper and some joggers… We’re currently obsessed with this Knitted Long Sleeved Oversized Tee. You can then put your things in the Lorde Buckle Faux Leather Bag for a combo that is polished but chill.

Bring a board night theme: Multi-course dining experience

If you’re someone who loves to mix and match, a multi-course dining experience sounds like the perfect ‘bring a board’ night for you. This could be equally divided among your girl gang, with each of you preparing a course… Think appetisers, mains, sides…and so much dessert.

See how that translates into the perfect fashion slay? Make one part of your clothing the main course by choosing a bold pattern or print (you can’t go wrong with a cut-out dress, for example) then add the sides: a chill jacket to dress it down and a gorgeous pair of women’s boots.  Top it off with dessert: a bunch of jewellery that you can layer to complete the look.

Bring a Board Night theme: Your fave shows 

What’s better than dressing up as fictional characters and letting your inner Rachel (or Monica, for that matter) come to life? Find the foods you know your faves eat in whichever show you choose and pair this with themed outfits.

For example, if we’re talking Friends, you can bring 90’s fever back with the Long Sleeve Super Stretch Unitard or a classic white T-shirt and the Low Rise Wide Leg 90s Denim Jeans in Blue.  Then add choc chip cookies, mac and cheese, and your own take on the famous floor cheesecake to your board.

Bring a board night theme: make it fancyyyy

A classic idea for a night with the besties? Bring the fancy-girl extra AF charcuterie boards filled with deli meat, cheese, crackers, olives, and pickles. This is the perfect way to go all out while keeping the prep simple. 

Need some outfit inspo to go with? Layering, textures, vibrant colours, and bold textures all give IT girl energy. Pair an oversized blazer with a going-out bodysuit for a classic layered combo or slay the night in a statement faux fur outfit, a chunky platform heel, and a fun hair accessory

It’s maximalism, darling!

Bring a board night theme: Cottagecore

Cosy decor, cups of tea, and floral summer dresses…there’s nothing quite as sweet as the cottagecore aesthetic. So why not bring it to life by making it into your Bring a Board Night theme? Add biscuits, scones, and pasties to your plate, and make it look cute by adding flowers picked from your garden.

If it’s cold out, serve up the looks with a knitwear dress and a pair of thigh-high boots. Alternatively, look out for earthy-toned pieces such as the High Waist Super Stretch Leggings in Cream and the Long Sleeve Fold Over Detail Top in Beige  — perfect for staying comfy too!
