For you chill outdoorsy girls, this theme is for you! You can easily transform this party into a lowkey night with your girls mowing on comfort food and sharing some bubbly, orrrrrr, you can get a little crazy and go ax throwing!
If you are a person who loves savoury food - this bachelorette party is JUST for you! If you are being a lumberjack for a day/weekend, you have to embody the lumberjack lifestyle. This includes comfort food -score! A delicious, but easy to make dinner is a chili bar. You can put chili on anything; fries, bread, potatoes, chips, the mouthwatering list goes on. This option is also easy if you or any of your friends have food restrictions - a vegetarian chili is easy to make!
The initial assumption with a lumberjack party is that it's a beer drinking fest and lets be real, it probably will be. But, if you are more of a liquor type girl or maybe just want a warm beverage to get your night started - we got you covered. Of course, we've chosen our fav lumberjack recipe to share with you; Spiked Apple Cider from ayearofcocktails.com
To make 1 drink, you will need
- 6 oz of warmed apple cider
- 1 oz of vanilla vodka
- 1 oz of butterscotch schnapps
Using a heat safe cup, pour in the apple cider. If the cider is cold, microwave it for approximately 30 seconds. Mix in both alcohols and stir. Now, add some apple slices or cinnamon sticks as garnish. Voila!
Now that your food is all planned out, you probably should invite your girls. The idea of "Flannel, Fur and Fizz", sets the theme of wearing flannel or fur, while sippin' some bubbly - perfect for your lumberjack bachelorette!
Dressing for the occasion is of course a biggie so ensure you and your bride tribe, or in this case your lumbermaids, are dressed to impress. My only suggestion to the shirt below, get something cute embroidered on it like "Bride Tribe" or "Squad"!
Decorating for this party will consist of bringing the outdoors in. Being a lumberbride or lumbermaid means you decorate with all things plaid and wood. Also incorporate plastic axes and beards where you can - it doubles as fun decor and props for your girls to put on.
6. Game Ideas
You know exactly the game I'm about to propose - AX THROWING! Locations offering this have become more common. The only thing with ax throwing is to plan it earlier in day, before your girls are a few drinks down - safety first! If you don't have an ax throwing location close to you or know your girls may a few too many drinks down before you go - you can always create ax throwing at home, with paper.
A fun way to keep track of photos and to have fun with social media is to give your party a hashtag. This way all your girlfriends can add photos and add your hashtag - allowing you to go through your social media and see pictures you may (or may not) remember!
