The term ‘BYOB’ has taken on a whole new meaning and I’m here for it! If you’re a lover and frequent partaker in hosting the occasional girls’ night with your friends, then this #boardnight trend making its rounds on TikTok will be your next go-to plan for a get-together.
Instead of splashing out thousands when it’s your turn to host, why not split the priorities – food and cocktails – with the crew? It’s simple to arrange. Pick a date, pick a theme, and everyone picks a board they’d like to put together based on the chosen theme. If the theme is colour, I’m going with pink!

It’s evident that we are living in the era of the board. If it’s not the charcuterie board, then it’s the butter board. Butter board a bit boring? The cheese board will always reign supreme. If you’re not up to going all-out with themes, taking it back to board basics is all you need to do.
Someone handles the meat, someone handles the cheese, someone handles the cocktails, and someone handles the carbs! Did someone say breadboard?

If you’re not up to cooking for #boardnight, that’s okay, you could always do a takeout board! We know, we know, you’re trying to focus on being healthy and cheeky ideas like this don’t help. I’m sorry. But…a burger board? Imagine!

I have one last nugget of board wisdom to leave you with, and it’s quite simple really. Don’t forget the drinks! Everyone loves occasionally glamming it up for cocktail night. Make it more interactive, and have everyone bring the goodies to make cocktails of their choice.

Go from needing to be the ‘host with the host’ to having the guests with the best! The fabulous thing about board night? The fun you’ll have marvelling at everyone’s attempts at board night! The bonus? It costs you less, requires less effort and cleaning, and, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to nibble and sip on for the night.
