Hostess Tips For The Perfect Girls Movie Night

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Inspired by This!

Ain’t no party like a Pitch Perfect party! The Bellas are back for one last call in Pitch Perfect 3, and if you loved films 1 and 2, you and your girls will be equally obsessed with everyone’s favorite acapella ladies in the triquel. But really, isn’t this the perfect film to flip on with your girlfriends for a signature girl’s night in? Now that Pitch Perfect 3 is available on Blu-Ray, complete with new musical performances, gag reel and extended scenes not seen in theaters, we have an excuse to host the perfect girls movie night.

If you’re like us, you’re already thinking about the moment you get home, slipping into your sweats, and fixing up a fun cocktail (it’s Friday night after all!). So invite the girls (er… Pitches) over, and follow these simple steps for the ultimate ‘Pitches night in!’ 🙂

Serve a Signature Cocktail

Nothing is as easy to pull together, and creates as big of an impact as a signature cocktail! What’s a girl’s night without a cute pink cocktail? To stay in theme with our movie of choice, we made a Pop Rocks cocktail (get it?) :). Here’s how you can mimic this fun, fruity concoction to sip while the movie plays…

What you need:

Strawberry or Watermelon Pop Rocks
1.5 oz vodka
1 tbsp Lime Juice
1/2 cup Strawberry or watermelon flavored juice
Lime wedge for garnish


1. Rim the glass with lime juice and dip in pop rocks. Tip: you will need to do this on separate plates for each glass because the pop rocks start popping as soon as they hit the lime juice!

2. Mix vodka, watermelon juice, and lime juice with ice in a shaker.

3. Pour into glass and garnish with a lime wedge

Provide all the Party Snacks! 

This means candy, popcorn, and sweets, of course! We featured an Oreo cookie cake and dubbed the Oreos ‘record label’ cookies to stay in theme. We also made a trip to the local candy shop (yes, these still exist!) to pick up more Pitch Perfect candy, like Nerds and extra Pop Rocks, as well as other old school favorites! Take a poll of your guests favorite treats and stock the (candy) bar to make it feel like a trip to the theater.

Hand out Fun Favors

A party is only as good as its guests! So, treat yours with Pitch Perfect favors! If you want to take your movie night to the next level, party favors are a great way to do so. These t-shirts feature a quote from the movie, ‘Love You Awesome Nerds’ are super fun, perfect for the ultimate fan. Tell everyone to wear their cozy sweatpants and they can pull one on when they arrive! Don’t forget to pull out an assortment of nail polish that can double as a party favor and an activity.


You Bella-believe this will be the best movie night ever! Best case scenario? You love Pitch Perfect 3 so much, an impromptu rif-off begins, and then you all fall asleep on the couch re-watching Pitch Perfect 1 and 2. Sounds idyllic to us! What are you waiting for? Make good choices and get your copy of Pitch Perfect 3 on Blu-ray this weekend!
