I need your help!

Okay so my sister in laws bachelorette party is TOMORROW and our plan was to go to dinner and then go out dancing...so no need for decorations or entertaining ideas, well now (as of 5 minutes ago) we are not going out but coming back to her girlfriends house, and since the party festivities were planned by me I have got to come up with quick ways to entertain like 25 gals at one of their houses and have NOTHING to work with. HELP PLEASE.....I cannot even go and set up any type of decorations until 5 pm tomorrow and dinner is at 7.

I know you are all some amazing women so please help me come up with the RAD party they think "martha stewart (me)" can come up with to put together fast.

Thank you all in advance! I have gotta run to do some shopping, but I will be posting pictures of how tomorrow evening goes!!!

Well you could play the bubblegum game. If you know the groom, you could call him and ask him 20 questions about himself, like: what is his favorte ice cream, colonge, pastime etc.

Write these questions down, along with the answer under each one. Then, have each guest ask the bride a question from the clipboard. If she gets it wrong she has to chew a piece of gum. Then, pass it to the next guest!

Make the questions tough. Because the more she gets wrong the bigger her mouth gets with chewing gum. It's hilarious too. Because she's trying to answer with a big wad of gum. Good luck!

The last Bachelorette Party I went to, we decorated the restaurant. We brought in large, oversized champagne glasses (as in like 2 feet tall), fill with her colors of glass beads/rocks, candles, and a few balloons. A few other decorations were added around the bases of the glasses. We then reused the glasses for her bridal shower, filling them with shells and other candles (a lighter color). It doesn't really take much to make it special, as many of the reasons it's fun and special is because of the people and the memories. We also had little buttons that you can buy at random stores (gag stores and such) that had labels for all the girls (princess, slut, taken, virgin, etc). They were fun for the bride to be to hand out, picking who gets what.

good luck and have fun!!

How fun! Is it horrible to admit that I have never been to a bachelorette party? Even as the bride-to-be?

I think the game above sounds fun though. I can't wait to hear what you decide to do!

A very fun game with ladies....
Have everyone write a question that begins with
who,what,when,where,why and howon different note cards.
put in a bucket and everyone takes turns drawing a question they have to answer! Nobody will know who wrote the question, so they can be fun and out there all they want

Ex
where is the strangest place you got it on??! LOL

How old were you when you had first kiss!

stuff like that!

I was in Spencer's at the mall last week and they had all kinds of bachelorette decorations and party favors. There may have even been some games. Bummer that you gals aren't going out. You could have made her wear the t-shirt with sewn on Life Savers with the raunchy saying on it. And the Burger King crown. What comes around should go around. lol (Ask her about it some time.)

I don't really know what you should do- I have only been to one bachelorette party (my own) and we went on a picture scavenger hunt, had a sleep over and went skinny dipping. I don't know if any of those ideas will work for you . . .

(as I read this- my bachelorette party sounds more like a preteen slumber party than anything else. hmmm)

hey ashley, i'm probably too late but i've got an easy decorating idea. you can go to the party decorations labels and see the baby boy shower. dress up a table with desserts, candles and a punch and voila. easy peasy! i haven't a clue about games, but it looks like you've got it covered. can't wait to see what you come up with.

I just found your blog and wanted to say how much I love it! Anyway, maybe too late now, but this was a funny game we did at mine.

You tell the bride you asked her guy 10 questions about himself like favorite color, food, movie, etc. Secretly you really didn't ask him. So when she starts answering the questions you "nope he said his fav color is blue not green". When she gets one wrong she has to do a shot and when she gets one right the other girls do. They had me take little shots of Sangria knowing I wouldn't get hardly any right. Of course you could make the "punishment" something else if you won't be drinking. You have to let her get a couple right, otherwise she'll catch on. It was really fun and definitely got me laughing :)

Can't wait to read more of your blog!
