How to Build the Ultimate Blanket Fort⛺️
After many attempts at constructing blanket forts, I have finally found the secret to the ultimate blanket fort! Follow these steps for a perfect, cozy, game night for you and your friends.
Build the foundation of the fort
I have upgraded from using broomsticks stuck in-between the crevices of the couch for support, to a photo booth stand from Amazon (here). I clipped blankets to each side of the stand and used sandbags to weigh it down/keep it from falling over. It works best if you have an L-shaped sectional, so that you already have two of the sides. Then, you can simply pull up a chair for the remaining side, and drape the blanket over it.
Set the mood
Setting the right ambiance includes mood lightning, decor, and comfort. (Make sure that you use fake candles instead of actual fire inside your tent.) I decided to accessorize and lighten up the place with some string lights. This doubles up as decor because I clipped some polaroids of my friends onto the lights. You can also leave your Polaroid camera in your picture-worthy tent for photos, (and added aesthetic.) If you want to purchase a Polaroid camera just click here. For comfort and decor, I added floor pillows, a sheep skin rug, and some pillows off of Etsy. (Love you more pillow) (Eyelash pillow)
An evening in your blanket fort would not be complete without treats! I recently made dog and cat, almond, sugar cookies and loved how they turned out, so I decided that I would make bow tie cookies again with the same recipe. To try out this recipe click here. Personalizing them with sprinkles only adds to the fun, so go crazy!
Card games are a great way to get the conversation going. I chose Cards Against Humanity, which you can purchase here. It was a blast, and always makes me laugh! Entertainment is very important, so pick a games or movies that you and your friends will enjoy.
I hope these tips inspire you to embark on your own blanket-fort-making adventure!
