Bachelor Party

The best man is responsible for throwing the bachelor party for the groom and his friends. The bachelor party is a tradition, which began in ancient Rome. It was the last farewell to being single party for the groom and his friends to enjoy themselves one last time before the groom committed himself to wedded bliss. A bachelor party can be loud and rowdy, with single women included in the merry making, or a bachelor party can simply be a gathering of friends, engaging in their own kind of fun, to enjoy a night out before the wedding. Although, the best man is in charge of the planning and the event of a bachelor party, the party is for the groom and his likes and dislikes are respected, in the theme and location as well as the guests to his bachelor party.

Planning a bachelor party takes some time that cannot be put off until the last minute, if you want to pull off an incredible bachelor party. Sometimes throwing a bachelor party can cause a bride to worry and may even cause problems for the soon to be couple, therefore, when deciding on your party theme, you will need either to take into the consideration the feelings of the bride, or simply not let her in on the bachelor party theme and agenda. It is hoped that the females will be able to throw a bachelorette party to get her mind off any insecurities she may have about her groom and his party. Nonetheless, the best man is in charge of the bachelor party and its proceeding.

Planning a bachelor party should be done with the groom. You should begin planning at least six months before the wedding and you should never plan a bachelor party the night before the wedding. As throwing, a bachelor party can be very draining on those who should show up at the wedding with a fresh face and clear eyes so the wedding photographs show a pretty picture, rather than a bunch of tired, red eye men with no real energy for the wedding.

While planning the bachelor party with the groom you will need to make a list. First, determine those whom the groom wishes to attend the party as well as the location for the party. The best man should also list the types of activates the groom enjoys, such as camping, fishing or hunting as well as any type of favorite games, such as laser tag or paintball. Keep in mind that the best man can also have help by delegating the duties to other men who are interested in helping to throw the bachelor party, as this will make things much easier and more likely to go over without to many problems. Although, when delegating responsibility, the best man is also to supervise the duties to make sure everything is ready on time.

Once you have determined the location and the guests to the bachelor party, you will need to consider the theme of the party. Depending on the wishes of the groom, the party can be outrageous or a simple get together. However, you do have the prerogative of throwing in a few surprises for the groom, if you wish. Just keep in mind that when there are alcoholic drinks being served that you will need designated drivers to ensure everyone gets home safely. Do this by arranging with other sober friends or a taxi service, to drive everyone home after the bachelor party.

This is a great way for the bride and her entourage to dress up in provocative clothing for one last girl’s night out on the town. Be creative! Try out a French maid costume or a sexy devil outfit.

Add in favorite bachelorette party decorations and party supplies.

Holiday Themed Bachelorette Party

Is there a festive holiday coming up? If so, you should consider a holiday themed bachelorette party.

Valentine’s Day is a great example of a holiday themed bachelorette party. Have your girls dress as Victoria Secrets Angels. Turn this into a contest and appoint someone to be Cupid. She/he will judge each of the outfits and announce a winner followed by a Valentines surprise.

How about 4th of July themed bachelorette party? Try the American flag shot for this theme, yummy! The bachelorette can dress up in sexy military wear or everyone can dress up as 40’s pin up girls. End the night with your “big bang” male stripper of course).

Devil and Angels Theme

Devil and angels bachelorette party theme is one of my favorites. Have the bachelorette dress up as a sexy devil and her bridesmaids (or attendees) dress up as attractive angels.

You can even have other guests dress up as the devil servants. Send out your bachelorette party invitations with a touch of naughty or nice. Let each angel know what the required dress code is for the evening.

Be artistic with your party decorations. Split the party room into two themes, one as heaven and the other as hell. Create fake fire by coloring or painting poster board to resemble flames (use some glitter for a girly touch). Find some lava lamps and red Christmas lights on this side to give hell a perfect feel. Cut out a few clouds to hang from the ceiling on heavens side. String white Christmas lights on this side for a heavenly touch. Don’t forget the balloons for both sides, red and black for the hell side and white and gold for the heaven side.

Create a thrown for the devil (bachelorette) to sit in for the evening. This way, later in the evening, the male stripper knows exactly who the sexy little devil/bachelorette is. Serve your guests a Bloody Mary as you signature drink.

Remember this is a devil and angels bachelorette party theme so the bride-to-be is allowed to be as naughty as she wants only to have her angels pull her back from the dark side.

Naughty School Girl Theme

Naughty school girl bachelorette party theme is a great attention getter.

Have the bachelorette and attendees dress as naughty school girls. Sexy Catholic outfits are one of my favorites but any short flannel miniskirts and white shirts will do. Make sure your shirt is a mid drift and you can tie it in a bow in the middle of your chest. The more cleavage the better!

You can go to the extreme if you want with this. Put your hair in pig tails and wear knee high stocking or socks & use bright red lipstick to get the full effect. If you’re going out on the town, your are sure to turn heads. Remember this is one of guy’s fantasies, & seeing an entourage of naughty school girls out on the town is jaw dropping.

If you are staying in for the night, consider playing rock n roll or pop music. A few favorites are Fergie Liscious, Brittany Spears, or anything that mentions school or naughty girls. Put up a chalk board in your party room to display the risqué bachelorette party games planned for the evening and what time the male stripper will arrive to teach them a lesson.

If you really want your naughty school girl bachelorette party to be a big hit, have a few rulers set out in case someone get really naughty and needs a spanking. Don’t get sent to the principal’s office, you might get a full lesson on anatomy!

Roman Theme Bachelorette Party

Ancient Roman times were full of festivities and grand celebrations. With a roman theme bachelorette party you can turn your party room into a palace and your bachelorette into a goddess.

First start out by creating the bachelorette party invitations with a roman theme. Think Gladiator to give you inspiration. The distinctive colors for this era are purple, gold, & white. Give all of the details in both Latin and English, including the date in time using roman numerals. Make sure to include the dress code of their favorite toga or stola wear.

Point them in the right direction on where to buy stolas (traditional Roman garment, basically a toga for women) or let them know making one of their own is acceptable. This should get everyone in the mood for your Roman theme bachelorette party.

Next turn your party room into a palace fit for your goddess.

Your party decorations can be extravagant or simple. Start by finding purple, gold, & white sleek fabrics. Hang these fabrics from your ceiling dropping down to the floor. Cover the entire room and large objects with your main color fabrics (quick tip: alternate between these colors to give a sleeker feel). Find large fluffy pillows for your guests to sit on.

If you’re really crafty, you can make your own columns. Pay a visit to your local hardware or party store and pick up some sheets of faux-marble contact paper. Purchase a few oak tag and foam core. Start by taping it together with the contact paper on top, and you have instant roman columns.

Put these homemade columns by the front door to give the roman scene some pizzazz. You can find some white Christmas lights to accent the ceiling with. Now you have completed your Roman palace.

As you know ancient Romans loved to drink and feast. Prepare a few finger food trays with olives, cheese, & grapes. Provide some Italian bread with olive oil for dipping. Try serving your selection of wines in ceramic pitchers as they did in ancient Rome.

Plan for a few bachelorette party games but put a Roman twist on them. Give a door prize for the best dressed Roman Empress.

Play the game Gladiator, the movie drinking game. Or you can host chariots races. Split the girls into teams of two. One gets on all fours while the other girl rides across the room on her back.

This is really fun after a few shots. Now it’s time to plan for the adult entertainment.

This is where hosting a roman theme bachelorette party can get a bit interesting! Have your male stripper show up as the Gladiator, or it’s even better if you can find a Russell Crow look-a-like male stripper.

Point out the goddess/bachelorette & let the party begin!

 

Putting the Fun Back Into Adult Party Games

Every relationship however young or old it is, needs some spice adding to it to keep interest and fun for both parties involved. One of the best ways to combine both fun and interest is by investing in adult party games; it eradicates the staleness and takes your relationship to a whole new exciting level.

It is said that the best kind of game is one that involves dressing up and role playing fantasies with each other. It gives you both a chance to step outside the box and become someone else for the night, and if you have been in a long relationship the same old boring experiences can really take away any drive and desires you have for one another. So role playing allows you both to look at each other in a different light and gives you the chance to really step things up. I’d recommend doing a bit of research if you don’t already know what your partner likes the most in terms of dressing up, find out what awakens them and drives them crazy with lust. For example if you are a woman, your partner may like the idea of you dressed up as a nurse and so on.

Perhaps the second ideal experience is to give your lover a sensual hot oil massage, not only does this loosen their body up and put them into a state of complete relaxation but it also charges their sexual feelings because you are tending to every area of their body by sensual touching.

These steps won’t work for everyone but they have a high rate of success in many relationships, so it’s worth giving one or both of the above a try.

 

Unique and Budget Friendly Princess Party Favors

Looking for unique but affordable princess party favors for your regal gathering? There are so many alternatives to consider that the possibilities seem endless. In this article, we will discuss princess birthday party favor ideas from the simple and inexpensive to those that are more elaborate. We always consider the busy moms in our selections of course.

When thinking of royalty frequently the crown jewels come to mind. Why not try your own version of the crown jewels party favor? This party favor can take on a few different styles. First, select your treasure chest, which can be either heavy duty wooden treasure chests that each guest can paint and decorate with stickers, stick on jewels, and glitter glue. Or opt for a more simplified version. You can purchase inexpensive small cardboard pink treasure chests made especially for holding party gifts. Make sure to fill your treasure chests with big jeweled rings, brightly colored necklaces and candy rings.

No princess party is complete without tiaras and magical wands. If all of your party guests are arriving in full prince or princess dress up, then complete their ensemble with a crown or tiara and wand. These items can be purchased inexpensively at most discount stores as well as online party supply stores. No need for them to all match, you can select a variety of colors and styles to fit the variety of guests that will be attending the party. Make sure to buy a few extra in case one of the guests accidentally steps on one or breaks one during the party. Since no jesters will be attending your party to cheer up your guests, so stashing away an extra tiara or wand if a problem occurs is the best way to stop those tears from flowing. Depending on how much money you want to spend, you could also add matching feather boas to the mix which are tons of fun and make for great pictures.

If you want other options that combine party crafts and princess birthday party favors, you can always purchase a DYO tiara or DYO wand kit which are prepackaged with all the necessary accessories for decorating. Or head to your local craft store and select the do it yourself decorating trinkets such as sequins, glitter glue, foam letter stickers and stick on jewels. Most craft stores also carry foam tiaras and princess cone hats in a variety of colors that are also tons of fun for princess party decorating projects.

Another unique way to combine party fun with party favors is to make princess themed treats while at the party that the guests bring home to enjoy later. Wilton has a wonderful new aluminum baking pan that makes it a snap to bake edible star wands using either a cake mix, cookie dough, brownie mix or cereal treats and lollipop sticks. If you can’t find the pan in a store or online, or if you want to make them the old fashion way, just use a star cookie cutter to cut out the brownies, cookies or cereal treats in the shape of stars and insert a lollipop stick into the bottom. The fun part comes in decorating the wands. Have the party guests use edible markers, edible glitter, sprinkles or M&Ms to decorate the treats, or you can decorate them in advance and just give them as gifts to the royal party goers. Just place the decorated edible wands into a clear plastic bag, wrap the stick with a twist tie and you’ve transformed this tasty treat into an edible princess party favor. You could even wrap the sticks in colorful ribbon and display them at the party by sticking the lollipop sticks into a Styrofoam block. The positive side to this party gift is that it is also fun for the girls to decorate while at the party, so you’ve accomplished two tasks in one. Problem? – could be a big mess to clean up!

If you’re hosting a princess birthday party, and you don’t want to spend all kinds of time and money coming up with the best princess party favors, then at the very least upgrade the basic party bag to a princess themed party bag. You can purchase cellophane party bags in sets of 12 with crowns and the word “princess” printed on the outside, or upgrade to a reusable bag made from felt or cotton that is decorated with marabou, embroidery, and jewels. Another great option for a princess party bag is to turn a small (but fancy) dress up purse into a party bag and place all kinds things little girls love inside of it. Little girls love their stuff, and having an extra fancy bag to put it all in is sure to be a big hit.

Sure to fit into most party bags as well as most budgets is a small booklet of princess tattoos. You could also apply these tattoos to the children during the party making for a great party project — both boys and girls alike all love their temporary tattoos. Typically you can find these for under $2 for a book of 6 tattoos and under $1 for individual tattoos.

All little girls love to color, so you can’t go wrong by adding a princess coloring book to the party favor bag. You can find stained glass coloring books and mini coloring books all with princess themes which are great (and unique) party favor gifts.

Princess themed hair clips (such as those shaped like crowns) and fancy hair bows are fun for all girls to play with, even if they have short hair. Hair accessories make great gift toppers too! Just place a cute princess ring or crown bracelet in a pastel cardboard jewelry box, tie with a pretty ribbon and top with a cute crown hair clip. Two gifts in one! Princess jewelry for little girls can come in a variety of price points and quality levels. Crown necklaces, bracelets and rings or even a happily ever after princess charm bracelet. Big on impact but small on cost.

What would be better than a wand that doubles as a pen? Or a big pink, puffy marabou tiara pen? Fun and funky princess themed pens are perfect for writing in journals or just doodling around. Pair up a princess pen with a little crown note pad or penny purse for a cute and unique party favor duo.

Princess photo frame and party picture – This one might take a little more effort on your end, but could result in a great, memorable party favor. Purchase princess photo frames in advance for each party goer and while at the party, take a picture of each girl in attendance. You can spice it up by adding a carriage photo prop or a picture with the “queen for a day.” Purchase some photo paper and print the photos while the party is still raging. This is definitely not a party favor that will end up in the trash.

 

Learn How To Throw A Cheap Halloween Party That Never Sacrifices Fun

There are many times during the year when the holidays warrant throwing a great party. Halloween is one of these holidays and people of all ages look forward to attending parties. This particular holiday is unlike others in the fact that it is fun in nature and allows people to dress up and become somebody else for the day.

Halloween parties are particularly fun to attend because no matter the party theme, guests always enjoy dressing up and admiring each other’s costumes. It can be said that being able to dress up in costumes and spend time with good friends and family is just about all a Halloween party requires to be entertaining. Though wearing costumes make these parties extremely fun a host of a Halloween party must do some planning to provide guests with a little more than just a place to enjoy each other’s costumes.

As with any other party a host’s first intention is to provide guests with everything that is needed to make the party a memorable occasion. Typically a host will concern themselves with food, refreshments, decorations, and activities that will keep their guests satisfied and entertained for the duration of the party. There are a variety of ways a host can turn the ordinary party into an extraordinary event.

While it is essential to make a Halloween party fun for all who attend it may also be important to do so on a restricted budget. One way to throw an excellent party on a tight budget is to do a little research before planning the event. There are many tips that teach how to throw a cheap Halloween party without sacrificing the enjoyment of guests.

Regardless of the age of party guests the first thing to consider is the budget available for the party. This will help determine the number of guests and the limitations set for each aspect of a party. If working with a really tight budget certain things can be adjusted and modified to make the event run smoothly.

Due to the nature of the Halloween holiday decorations for the party can be somewhat limited because a great deal of the party will focus on costumes. If throwing a party for youngsters decorations may be a bit more important. Though children enjoy all of the decorations that naturally go with the holiday decorating does not have to cost a fortune.

Shopping with a local store that sells inexpensive items such as a Dollar Tree store, Dollar General, or other similar bargain store will help save a lot of money on decorating. Balloons, streamers, festive plates, cups, and other Halloween items can be purchased inexpensively. For the party that demands attention to decorations many of them can actually be made out of normal household items.

The walls and windows can be plastered with construction paper cut-outs of black cats, jack-o’-lanterns, flying witches, and of course ghosts, ghouls, and goblins of all types. Selecting inexpensive Halloween music soundtracks to play during the party is an excellent idea. The internet is actually a great resource for downloading a wide variety of spooky music to play.

Creating an area that is designated for spooking guests can be decorated inexpensively and with the help of friends or family members it can be turned into a spook-tacular area. A table loaded with bowls of food items that feel creepy is an excellent way to entertain young guests. Cooked noodles, Jell-O, grapes, and other similar food items can be put together to create fun hands-on Halloween entertainment.

Providing inexpensive refreshments such as punch, Kool-Aid, finger foods, candy, and other tasty delights is easy to do when shopping with the bargain stores mentioned above. If hosting an adult party the decision to serve alcohol will need to be considered. When on a tight budget hosts can either provide the beverages or informed guess that the party is a BYOB party.

Having adult guests bring their own alcoholic beverages is not considered impolite, in fact many hosts throw BYOB parties on a regular basis to keep costs down and guests satisfied. When it comes to refreshments party hosts can also request guests to bring food items such as chips, cookies, soda, and other similar items. Hosting a party in the evening is an excellent idea because most guests will have already eaten so therefore will only want to munch on snacks.

For larger parties where food is required a potluck sort of event can be held or if the budget allows a catering service can be considered. For hosts who need or prefer catering Toronto has excellent services that can make any party a tasty sensation. After the decorations and refreshments are taking care of all that is left to plan are activities to entertain guests. Halloween offers hosts an opportunity to throw costume judging contests, games, and many other fun things to keep guests entertained. Throwing an inexpensive Halloween party is easy to do and the planning can be almost as much fun as the party itself.
