Who says boys get to have all the fun? If one of your besties is about to get hitched, a lavish bachelorette party could be just what she needs to get those pre-wedding jitters taken care of. If you're trying to come up with a theme, why not look back in time a bit? A 1970s-themed bachelorette party is a great excuse to don those bell-bottoms, throw on a pair of John Lennon sunglasses and crank some good old-fashioned disco tunes.
Deck out your home in bright colors to give it the appearance of an old school dancehall! Hang round paper lanterns throughout the space to cast a beautiful glow. You can also count on a few tastefully placed blue sailboat tea light holders to provide a little bit of intimacy.
As far as activities go, you've got plenty of choices. You can always screen a movie from the decade - flicks like Saturday Night Fever are sure to go over well. Plus, chances are, the film will get everyone into a dancing mood, so be sure to have a CD ready to go with all of their favorite disco songs.
When it's time go to, make sure your guests leave with their arms full of awesome party favors. Personalized stemless wine glasses are sure to go over well, as will glass photo coasters and personalized Hershey's chocolate bars. No matter where your tastes lie, you should have no problem finding a bunch of favors that will please. The 70s may be long gone, but retro is totally in right now, so go ahead and give it a shot!
