Ready for a Girls Night Out? Windy City Novelties has all the Accessories you Need for a Bachelorette Party!
April 11, 2012
Throwing a bachelorette party for a friend can be a daunting task on any budget, but in this day and age, when people are tightening their purse strings and guarding their pennies a little more closely, the idea of hosting a bachelorette party can be downright frightening. But we can help you throw a great party for your girlfriends on a wallet-friendly budget. You can go with the traditional bachelorette night of bar hopping and strip clubs if you’d like, but if your friends are a bit more tame, why not plan a not-so-traditional Girls’ Night In? Here are some fun ideas that will ensure you all have a night to remember!
You don’t have to travel to Las Vegas or rent a fancy hotel room for the weekend to treat the bride-to-be to a memorable bachelorette party. Start out by sending all the guests a bachelorette personalized invitation to the party. Let Windy City Novelties fill out all the pertinent information to save you a little time and stress! These invitations are preprinted on high-quality cardstock and can be customized with twelve choices of fonts and twenty-four ink colors. These personalized invitations will let the girls know they are in for a great time!
Now it’s time to get your home ready for the party! First step is to kick all the males out for the night. No boys allowed on Girls’ Night In! Next, you’ll need to plan your decorations. For a Girls’ Night In bachelorette party, a pink and zebra theme is always fun. Our Single and Sexy beverage napkins are the perfect accent for this color scheme, especially when paired with our zebra print plates, and will let the ladies know they are celebrating the bride-to-be’s last night of being single! Just remind her that she’ll never stop being sexy, and if she needs a little help with that, have her don a pink and black feather boa and a pink foil crown, because what woman doesn’t feel sexy in a little pink bling? Our martini and heels cutout garland and martini and heels danglers will help give your party space a festive feel, and some pink and black balloons and streamers will complete the look.
Once you’ve got the place decorated, it’s time to move on to the evening’s menu. If you’re going having a sleepover, why not go for traditional sleepover foods that you remember from your junior high days? Popcorn with lots of butter and salt, chips and dip, pizza, and the most important part, ice cream! Go all out for the ice cream and create a full service sundae bar. Start out with gourmet ice cream flavors and offer a wide array of toppings, such as hot fudge, butterscotch, caramel, strawberry sauce, M&Ms, chocolate chips, pecans, peanuts, sprinkles, crushed cookies and candy bars, real whipped cream, and liquor-soaked cherries. And for a fun twist, have the girls build them in pink glowing martini glasses!
Or, if you’re food tastes are a little more grown up, you can serve more refined foods like a fruit pizza, finger sandwiches, mini quiches, hot dips and pita chips, egg rolls, or fondue. Be sure to get the guest of honor’s input on the menu and see what kind of foods she would like to have at the party. She may want to spend one last night indulging in her childhood comfort foods before having to cook like a grown up for her husband, or she might want to enjoy some girly treats! Or a mix of both might be good. And of course, no bachelorette party is complete without the drinks! Martinis, Cosmopolitans, and wine are a given and if the bride-to-be has a signature drink, be sure you have the makings on hand so she can indulge in her favorite cocktail. Stock up on our pink glowing martini glasses and 12 ounce pink glow cups so that everyone can enjoy their drinks in a festive glass!
No matter where your party is taking place, as long as the bride-to-be knows her friends are willing to go the extra mile for her and plan a night of fun to celebrate her last days as a single girl and their happiness over her upcoming marriage, she is sure to appreciate her bachelorette party. So don’t worry if you don’t have the money to take her out for a night of drunken bar hopping complete with a limo and strippers or an elaborate weekend in the city. Planning a Girls’ Night In party at home, where you take the time to decorate, cook the perfect foods, mix her favorite drinks, and invite her closest friends, still shows you care and will still give her wonderful memories of an evening spent with her best friends.
