Slumber Party Ideas from Darcy Miller

The Martha Stewart Show, October 2010

Slumber parties are a delightful rite of passage for young girls, and a little planning and creativity can make them extra-special.

Darcy Miller, editorial director at Martha Stewart Weddings, recently hosted a slumber party for two dozen girls at event space Asphalt Green to celebrate her daughter Ella's fifth birthday.

Darcy shares some crowd-pleasing ideas from the party. 

Pillowcase Decorating

Let creativity shine by having the girls decorate plain pillowcases with a variety of designs and embellishments.

Flashlight Decorating

Flashlights give the slumber party a distinctly nocturnal feel, and they double as take-home favors when decorated with pretty beads.

Journal Decorating
Send party guests home with customized diaries adorned with stickers and glitter, perfect for recounting favorite memories from the night before.
