A bride-to-be’s bachelorette party is her last hurrah before she ties the knot, so make sure the party is one she will always remember with a great theme and tons of exciting activities. One of the hottest bachelorette party trends right now is full of pink birds and tropical touches – today we’re sharing tips and ideas for a fun flamingo themed bachelorette party.
A Tropical Destination
The first step in planning a flamingo themed bachelorette party is choosing the destination. Warm locations like Palm Springs, Vegas and the beaches of either Florida or California certainly make for the perfect bachelorette getaway. But if you’re wanting to stay a little bit closer to home, search for lake houses or fun resorts in places like the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri or Lake Geneva in Wisconsin.
Or if you can’t take a trip to the water, bring the tropical fun to you! Stock your party with lots of tropical decorations and inspiration to make it feel like you’re in a far-off place celebrating the bride’s last fling. For maximum fun, start the party at a venue you can decorate that has a pool – like a friend’s house – because it’s not a party without a giant flamingo pool float, right?
Fancy Flamingo Decor
Flamingos are so trendy right now, so finding decor to use for your flamingo themed bachelorette party will be a breeze. First up, decide on a color palette and plan your decor around that. For a flamingo party, pink is going to be the main color choice but choose a few different shades of pink to match your flamingo decor. Then throw in some green and yellow so you can include some fun tropical details like pineapples and palm leaves.
Choose one or two spaces to decorate with the flamingo decor, like the main table in the space where you’ll be hosting the party and a separate bar area. For the table, line the center with a runner and top that with a little greenery, inflatable flamingo floating coasters, some colorful tissue paper balls and flamingo confetti. This table will become the perfect place to gather and play games.
Then find a spot to set up the bar! This will be a great area for flamingo garlands, flamingo cups and bottle openers and a sign with the hashtag for the trip. It’s another great place to take photos and can act as a backdrop for your group pictures.
With a bright pink palette and lots of decor, your flamingo themed bachelorette party will be the perfect way to celebrate the bride-to-be.
Tropical Extras for a Flamingo Themed Bachelorette Party
You can have a lot of fun with pineapples in this theme too! From painted gold pineapples down the center of the table to pineapple pool floats, this tropical fruit is the perfect complement to your flamingo themed bachelorette party.
Why not have some fun with your drink choices as well? Instead of bringing cases of beverages to drink, get creative with different punches and spiked fruits. Rum punch is a party favorite, and it’s even more fun when you put it in pouches and add a straw like an adult Capri-Sun. Spiked watermelon and Prosecco soaked grapes are refreshing alternatives to mixed drinks and they’re more fun to eat too.
Party favors are another great thing to include at a bachelorette party too. Dress up your bride and her crew in matching flash tattoos, snapback hats or tank tops so everyone knows when the party arrives – plus they’ll help you all keep track of each other.
With this bright theme and Instagram-worthy party decor, this flamingo inspired bachelorette party will be one of the most fun weekend’s your bride-to-be will ever have with her girlfriends!
