And what group of girls wouldn’t enjoy a pampering party, with your very own pampering stations, aromatherapy treatments, and wine-tasting?
A 90s-Themed Party
If your bride-to-be is anywhere between 20 and 40 years old, why not treat her to a childhood blast from the past? Jump straight into the nostalgia with some rad 90s themed decorations.
Fun in Fall

If your girl gang is looking for a more casual, close-knit bachelorette party, why not turn it into a games night? All you need is some board games, a few bottles of good wine or liquor, and maybe some prizes to ramp up the competition!
Pretty in Pink
You don’t have to be a kid to love the color pink – there are plenty of adults who still love it too! Not to mention, it works perfectly with many of the bachelorette party decorations and accessories you’ll find in local stores. A pink-themed party is simple, pretty, and sure to bring out the girly girls in the bridesmaids and bride-to-be.
