If there is one kind of party that a Spatularette should definitely know how to throw, well, its a BACHELORETTE PARTY, don't ya think? When you are in your mid-twenties it seems like everyone is getting married. Every day our facebook newsfeed seems to be full of "relationship status" changes, pictures of rings, and loads of wedding photos. As Spatularettes we feel that one of the most important, yet often overlooked, parts of wedding season is the bachelorette party. Every girl deserves one more night out as a single lady, right?
All too often though, bachelorette parties get a really bad reputation (sometimes deservedly so). What comes to mind when you hear bachelorette party? Probably way-too-drunk-girls stumbling out of a bar, party buses, stripper poles, Vegas, or baked goods crafted after male genitalia. We aren't knocking that kind of party, if that's your thing, but we do want to share some ideas for how to throw a slightly classier "last fling."
Tall One just hosted a bachelorette weekend for one of her closest girlfriends and the party went off without a hitch. The girls all arrived at Tall One's apartment on Friday evening for wine and appetizers before stopping by a local bar for a couple of drinks. Saturday morning the ladies shared a Bachelorette Brunch complete with a make-your-own-quiche bar. (The quiche were a big hit, btw!) Saturday afternoon was a Magic Mike matinee and cheesesteaks at the famous Geno's on Passayunk Ave in South Philly. The main event was Saturday night starting with dinner at El Vez followed by dancing and fun at the River Deck.
Check back all week for recipes and ideas to host the perfect bachelorette party!
