Take a Trapeze Class For a Wild Bachelorette Party!

Trapeze

Want to do something out of the ordinary for your bachelorette party? Take a class that will teach you a new skill and help you cross an item off of your bucket list. If you’re in the Seattle area, you can get adventurous and learn some trapeze basics!

Emerald City Trapeze Arts provides private classes where every attendee will get a chance to fly and learn tricks on their full-sized trapeze rig. The classes are taught by circus professionals, and are designed to accommodate people of all athletic abilities. You’ll have tons of fun watching each other and cheering each other on!

The classes are a total rush, and gives you a huge sense of satisfaction (not to mention all of the endorphins)! Afterwards, visit a nearby restaurant or bar for a drink and to relive the class through the pictures and videos you took.

This class is great for circus-themed parties, adventurous or athletic brides, or anyone that wants to have a party that the girls will talk about for years after.

Cozy Nostalgic Bachelorette Slumber Party

Bachelorette Slumber Party

As the weather gets colder, the idea of wandering around bars in tiny dresses and heels may seem less appealing. When you’d rather stay inside and cozy, we recommend throwing a fantastic (and nostalgic) bachelorette slumber party!

Invitations:

Sleepover Invite

Cut some paper into the shape of a sleep mask and add ribbons to the sides. Voila! An inexpensive and cute invitation!

Decor:

Cheers Bitches Banner Cropped

Decor can be as relaxed or lavish as you want. If you go for a nostalgic slumber party vibe, you can cover the walls with posters of your favorite teen hearthrobs. Play the music you loved as a teenager or put on some of your old favorite movies in the background. (Or go a bit more “adult” with this “Cheers Bitches” banner!)

Activities:

Cootie Catcher2

It’s not a sleepover without some games and gossip! We love the “Did You Ever vs. Would You Ever” game and the “What I Know about the Bride” game pad. You’ll get to know each other better and see who knows the bride best. Combine those games with nostalgic favorites like cootie catchers and Twister!

Food/Drinks:

Cereal Bar

Get all of your favorite slumber party foods: pizza, popcorn, candy, and more. Set it all out on a table so guests can munch on it throughout the night.

Don’t forget the morning! This cereal bar is a fun and pretty way to enjoy breakfast without having to do much prep.

Gifts/Favors:
Slumber Party Essentials

Put together a tote of “sleepover essentials” including things like a toothbrush, a DIY facial, a sleep mask, and some cute slippers.

Do something special for the bride: get her a special outfit to wear for the night and package it in a duffle that she can use for her honeymoon or other overnight trips after she’s married. If it’s too chilly for just a sleep set, get her a blingin’ hoodie and matching lounge pants. These can be re-worn on her wedding day while she’s getting ready!

For more slumber party inspiration, check out our Pinterest board. What would you include in your slumber party?

Mustache Party

Mustaches

We recently got a new product in that’s been selling like crazy, and it’s these pink mustache stickers. And no wonder! They’re only $1.99 and are ridiculously fun. (We couldn’t resist donning them ourselves a couple weeks ago.)

The mustaches are fantastic for a silly costume, party favor, or photo booth prop, but we got to thinking–how else can you use mustache stickers?

Decorating Straws

mustache straws

Order two sets of the mustaches and a pack of straws to make 6, or four sets of mustaches and a pack of straws to make 12.

Find the matching mustaches and place one on each side of the straw, about a 1/4 of the way down.

These straws double as a fun photo prop and a silly way to identify your drink. Not using straws? Put the mustaches straight on your drink container to claim it as your own!

Pin the Mustache on the Man

inflatable hunk with Mustache

If you want to keep your party appropriate for all ages, skip the traditional “pin the _____” bachelorette games and make your own with the mustaches! Take turns sticking them on our Inflatable Hunk doll or blow up a picture of the groom or a favorite celebrity crush. You won’t be able to stop laughing at the results!

“I Mustache You a Question”

mustache stickers

Turn the mustaches into a game! Have each girl start the party by putting on a mustache. Then, throughout the night, challenge mustachioed ladies to answer embarrassing questions truthfully. If they answer, they can remove their mustache!

We can’t get enough of the mustaches. How would you use them for your party?

Decorate a Hotel Room for a Bachelorette Party

Hotel Decor

A lot of bachelorette parties take place in hotel rooms or restaurants, and the standard decor may not scream “Ladies Night.” What to do? Pack some of these small and inexpensive items with you, and in 15 minutes you’ll have a party room ready for the bride-to-be!

Streamers: One roll of streamers can decorate a room easily. Just make sure you pack some tape to hang it up with! Grab multiple colors to make it extra festive. You can get this pink zebra print streamer roll for $2.99.

Banner: A banner helps set the tone for the party, and this one says it’s going to be a wild night. Get the “Cheers Bitches” banner for only $4.99!

Balloons: Balloons take up virtually no space in your suitcase and just need a bit of prep time to make a room more festive. You can even incorporate them into games later on in the night! Slip papers with dares into the balloons and have each girl pop a balloon then do the dare they find inside. Get 6 zebra print balloons for $2.99.

Boas: Use the boas to decorate the room at first, and then let the ladies wear them throughout the night. You can get 5 feather boas for $14.99!

Underwear: This gift to the bride can do double-duty as gifts and decor. Have each lady pick out a pair of underwear for the bride, and hang them up like a garland in the room. The bride will have to guess who gave each pair of underwear!

Rhinestone Sashes: Don’t forget to decorate the bride-to-be! Find a sash that matches the color scheme of the party, and you’re all set! This Soon To Be Mrs. sash is available for $23.99.

All of these items can be packed up in a small purse or carry-on and will turn your space from drab to fab. Check out all of these supplies and more at The House of Bachelorette!
