Celebrating with your closest friends during your final days of being single is the whole point of a bachelorette party. Instead of just having another same old night out or wine get-together, why not do something different, exciting, and interesting?
The theme you choose can create an atmosphere that’ll make it a night to remember! Be sure to choose one that suits the guest of honor’s interests and personality, as well as make it a fun occasion for those invited.
In today’s times, planning a bachelorette party that requires travel can be tough. Here are some creative ideas you can use right in the comfort of your own home, that can still observe social distancing, and are sure to be a whole lot of fun!
If you’re lucky enough to have backyard space, this could be a fun theme to set up. The challenge is to create a beach or boat scene right at home! It works best when the home has a swimming pool, but definitely can be done without one.
Lay a tarp out and get hold of some building sand, or beach sand if you can. Set up a few umbrellas, a volleyball net, have some beach balls lying around, and stock the beach bar up with cocktails!
Deck out your “I Do” crew with beach gear, fanny packs, and sailor hats. Wear your swimsuit and sunglasses, play some “nauti” games, and dance the night away to “Cake by the Ocean”!
A bonfire on the beach would be the perfect way to end the festivities.
A Final Fiesta
A fiesta theme is a chance to experience some delicious food and colorful decor with your best friends. Create an atmosphere that makes your guest crave that margarita or mojito, and celebrate the bride like it’s Cinco de Mayo!
Colorful decor and prickly cacti can be used for decorations, with balloons and streamers turning any room, house, or backyard into a desert oasis. Don’t forget to get the bride-to-be a sombrero!
Naturally, nachos or a taco bar can serve as the food, and as a final touch, finish off the meal with some margarita flavored cupcakes.
If you start early, include some time to chill out with an afternoon siesta before picking up again with some music and dancing in the evening.
For some activities to add to the fun, try some salsa dancing or have guests take a whack at a pinata!
The Last Swing Before the Ring
If the bride-to-be is a golfer, consider hosting a golf-themed bachelorette party and get everyone ready to par-tee!
Although a golf club would be a natural choice for a location, you can create a perfect home-based golf course for your socially-distanced bachelorette event.
It may take some work, but setting up a mini-golf layout either in the house in the yard could be super fun. If that won’t work, you could always rent a golf simulator (or a Wii) and get practically a full round of golf in!
Hand out bucket hats when guests arrive, and if you have the means, hire a couple of “caddies” (with six-packs, of course) to cater to guests’ every need.
Activities could include playing blindfolded, beer-pong golf (take a drink every time the other team lands a putt!), or a creative game with a golf ball retriever.
If your bride-to-be prefers something a little less party and a little fancier, why not arrange a luxurious dinner party at home?
Begin by getting in a private chef to cook your meal for you and allow every guest to simply sit back, relax, and be served.
This is a great opportunity for guests to dress to the nines! If you’d like to make it a full-day thing, why not get a hairstylist and masseuse in to treat all guests during the day, and have the big dinner party in the evening?
No matter the bride-to-be’s tastes or likes, there’s something to suit them! Although current times make destination bachelorettes difficult, having one at home can be just as exciting and memorable (not to mention more affordable).
Get creative! Although you may have to clean up yourself the next day, the beauty of an at-home bachelorette is that you’re free to party the night away and flop down on a sofa when you’re tired, in a safe, comfortable environment!
