Bachelorette Pot-Luck Party

Bachelorette Party TipsIf you are having a home party this bachelorette party season and getting all the girls together for a last night out soirée, we have the tips for you in throwing the best in bachelorette party home bashes!

A fun and cost effective way to celebrate the Bride to Be’s festivities is to get all the girls to plan a Pot Luck extravaganza. We are sure, that just like us here, most of the girls have their favorite & specialty dishes they would like to show off just like Rachel Ray. This is a great way for the bride and the bachelorettes to enjoy a variety of tasty treats while saving a lot, not to mention not having to rush in & out of restaurant!  Make it a theme night, possibly the soon to be Brides favorite cuisine.  Some like to cook and some like to bake, so utilize everyones specialty and make it one heck of a feast

Below we have listed the most helpful steps in helping coordinate the event:

Make sure to get out the bachelorette party invitations early and let everyone know where the last night out will be as well as the theme of everyone bringing or making something. We carry a few bachelorette party invitations still, but far more popular now are e-vites, no stamps necessary and they are sent and received in seconds instead of delivered by the US Mail.  We here are very partial to the old school ways and there is something a bit classy about getting a physical invite, so either way make sure to get them out as early as possible.

We have attached a bachelorette party sign-up sheet which you can download in helping everyone place what they plan on bringing so you don’t have doubles or triples of the same item.

Once you have the menu down and know pretty much the majority of what food is coming, always a good not make sure and pick up some of the cute bachelorette party tableware. Make it festive and fun, using colors that go with your theme. It always seems to be the pinks, purples and whites as bachelorette party favorite colors but of recent years a more classic look with the black white and silver. What ever you decisioni might be, include it with the tableware & add accents with all kinds of bachelorette party decorations like confetti. balloons, banners and more!

Just as important as tableware. the other bachelorette party supplies are just as important.  Decorate the room with things mild to wild & classy to sassy (actually just had fun with that...)   The party should be based on the bride to be's taste, but you should have fun with it and toss some surprises in there. Now it the guest of honor is not a frilly one, and not much into, lets say Flowery stuff, a good idea is to not go the afternoon tea route, but mixing it up a bit is always fun and many times that unexpected makes for an interesting and more lively party.

Bachelorette Party Games

A potluck is a great and creates a focus and bonding among the girls which many times is lost when partying at a club or large venue. Just as important are the bachelorette party games that can be played and spread out throughout the party. It is also important to choose bachelorette party games that is right for the group as there are so many to choose from. Spread them out during the party as to not overdo it with games. Keep score and make it a little competitive which can be really fun. Choose teams but make sure it stays fun and not frustrating for the girls.

A cute game is a new iPhone bachelorette party game which has all types of activities and is easy to take out and pay on an iPhone or iPad during the festivities. Besides games, a fabulous idea is to have an exotic dance lesson instructor come over and teach the girls a few snazzy moves.

Ok, so we all know that whomever decides to host the party, usually ends up doing the lion share. No matter how many times you ask, or the girls might promise, it almost always ends up that few end up doing most of the work, so choose wisely!! 

A good idea, if you can, schedule a fun morning breakfast or early lunch with everyone who has promised to help, that way everyone is there and ready to go, so your not waiting - looking at your watch or clock wondering when they are going to show. 

Figuring out the schedule and dishes being brought is another thing to watch. Are there going to be hot dishes, things that need to be refridgerated or in the freezer.  Is one person bringing something to compliment or needs to be paired with a dish from someone else?

Decided if you want the kitchen to become a place where everyone brings their ingredients and prepares them at the location, which can get crowded, messy and depending on how big or small the kitchen is - can get nerves flared before the party even starts, so best to have things brought, ready to go.

Remember too, if there are hot dishes, many will bring things that might need to be heated, so do you have enough room in a oven or stove to do it, and if so.. hopefully time and temperatures will be similar to make sure everything is ready at the same time.

** We suggest getting the decorations done first, the look of the event is so important, and time always seems to get away during the rush of the day, the food can always be served a little later if it ends up that way, but if you get into a rush in the kitchen or shopping, the decorations just never get done!!

Also when getting all your stuff together, we always suggest ordering way in advance!!  We all have such busy lives, and it is amazing how time seems to fly, so order some of those fun discount Bachelorette Party Supplies, early so they are one more thing checked off the list and pick up those grocery items needed for the meal days before, that way you're relaxed and almost guaranteed to have things go smoothly!!


Picture Taking Ops Bachelorette Party Games & Favors - Discount

Make sure to have your phones and maybe even a camera ready for some memories, and we know some inappropriate bachelorette party pictures will make their way into the mix, but its expected. 

And as that famous quote states: "What happens in Vegas - stays in Vegas", well we believe in the same should go for some ot those pics, so if you are having some entertainment and hiring up a Male Stripper, well some of those moments that might take place over the weekend or in the clubs & bars, should just be left as memories - not to be captured!! 

If you decide to hit up a bachelorette party Pole Dance class or Exotic Dance lesson, well we think you can decide on which ones to take, and others - well not so much!!


Bachelorette Party Supplies & Favors - MoviesMovies & Music For The Girls

One of the great things about a Pot Luck Bachelorette Party or just one at home, is the ability to have some entertainment at your fingertips.  One easy way is to have your favorite or maybe the bride to be's favorite chick flicks playing in the background.  A great way to keep everyone occupied while things are being prepared and just plain ole entertaining.  Have some appitizers and drinks ready for everyone to get a start on the night. 

Even better is to have a few movies cued up, downloaded or ready to pick up on PPV, have some of the bachelorette classics ready to go.

Bride-To-Be Servers

When the party starts, it is great to appoint some girls to help in serving everyone or at least making sure that everything gets out. Help the person whose house it is as they have given their place to throw your last night out and should also be the server. Make sure there are enough napkins, cups, tableware, plates and straws. You can also get table cloths and decorations to place on the table to make it festive.


Words of Inspiration and Fun

At some point during the party, have everyone go around and state the most favorite funny or beautiful memory of the bride-to-be and have someone write all of them down. You can take the pictures you take plus the words and make a scrap book as a bachelorette party gift.


Clean Up Crew

Not that it is fun, but it is a must to have a group of bachelorettes willing to help out and clean up after the last night out comes to an end. If you are planning on a post-party, have everyone chip in and clean or come for a post-party the next day so the person whose house it is does not get stuck with the mess.
With some planning, you can have a great Bachelorette Pot-Luck Party with good friends! Most of all, it is important to have a great time and not stress about how the party goes! Everyone gets to have fun and gets kudos for the great buffet!
