    Always have good food. Ideal foods for sleepovers would probably be: 2 two-liter pop bottles, a bag of chips, at least two kinds of pizza, (just cheese and pepperoni are best.) popcorn, cupcakes, ice cream, and anything that is you and your friend(s) favorites. Just make sure no one's allergic to the food that you guys are eating.
