How to have a period party: celebrating your menstrual cycle with friends

A period party, also known as a menstrual celebration or red party, is a fun and empowering way to celebrate your menstrual cycle with your friends. It can be a way to break the stigma surrounding periods and embrace your body's natural rhythms.

If you're interested in hosting your own period party, here are some tips on how to make it a success.

Invite your friends

Invite your close friends who you feel comfortable talking about periods with. You can even make it a themed party, where everyone dresses in red or wears period-themed accessories.

Decorate

Use red decorations such as balloons, streamers, and tablecloths to set the mood. You can even create a red velvet cake or cupcakes with red icing.

Have period-related activities

You can have a tampon or pad toss game, make period-themed crafts like period-positive buttons or menstrual cups, or have a trivia game about periods.

Share your period stories

Encourage your guests to share their own period stories and experiences. This can help break down the taboo surrounding menstruation and create a supportive environment.

Educate

You can provide informational resources about menstrual health, such as books or websites, or even have a guest speaker come to talk about menstrual health and hygiene.

Provide period products

Make sure to have plenty of pads and tampons available for your guests to use. You can even make period care packages for your guests to take home.

Remember, a period party is about celebrating your body and embracing your menstrual cycle. It's a fun and empowering way to break down the stigma surrounding periods and create a supportive community.

You are Be-YOU-tiful. Make sure you take time to show yourself some love.
