Bachelorette Party Themes

Bachelorette parties are known by different names such as hen night, hen do, hen party, etc. Such kind of parties are known as kitchen tea and 'stagette' in South Africa and Canada respectively. The bachelorette party is organized to bid farewell to a bride-to-be. The origin of bachelorette parties can be traced back to the 1960s, known as the period of sexual revolution. The concepts of gender equality had an influence in the development of the 'bachelorette party culture'. The bachelorette party themes and games mentioned below will help in celebrating in a fun way.

Good Bachelorette Party Themes
Nowadays, entertainment is the prime factor that influences bachelorette parties. The following themes will help in organizing a nice party.

Weekend Spa
A weekend spa event can be organized for a bachelorette party. It is one of the best bachelorette party theme ideas. Given that women are interested in activities like manicure, makeovers, etc. a weekend party at the spa would be great. One should look for a spa which provides as many services as possible; massages, mud wraps and many such services offered by the spa. Such spas would suit the needs/wishes of a variety of people. Thus, these are some ideas for a rocking bachelorette party.

Roman Theme
The Roman theme can be a nice way to celebrate a bachelorette party. It is one of those unique bachelorette party themes which gives a different touch to the regular/normal night outs. The decorations for this party should have a feel of ancient Rome. One can use Roman costumes for this party theme. Roses can be used for decorations. The place at which the party is being conducted, should look spacious. To add fun to the party, the waiter being hired should be made to wear traditional Roman costumes. One can also turn this party into a surprise party for the bride-to-be and add fun to it.

Tea Party
Arranging a tea party at home would be a nice idea to celebrate, except that the party should have something special. Organizing a grand, Victorian style party for the bride-to-be would definitely please her. The menu for such parties will include finger sandwiches, scones, petit fours, etc. There is no need to go for an expensive hotel. A rich and well-organized party can be held at home itself.

Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt theme though seems like a children's affair, one should definitely try this theme. It will create a lively atmosphere. A treasure hunt game complete with map and clues will help generate interest among people and the idea would prove to be an instant hit. Keeping prizes for winners and arranging for celebrations other than the scavenger hunt will make the party a fun-filled activity.

History of Bachelorette Parties
Bachelorette party is the function in which ladies gather together to wish the bride-to-be and have some fun time. The concept of bachelorette parties was modeled from the long tradition of bachelor parties. Organizing bachlorette parties was not very common till the mid-1980s. In the year 1998, a book about planning bachelorette parties was published. Thus, we can say that it is a relatively new concept in comparison to bachelor's parties.

The bachelorette party themes presented above, are just few of the many interesting ones. One can use many more ideas and incorporate bachelorette party games in the celebrations being carried out. The given bachelorette party ideas would however, help in having fun at the party.
