Well, I’m not so good at the activities, but I just did a holiday cocktail party on a budget and this is what I served – we had about 30 people. Along with the basics (cut veg, pretzels, etc), I served..

Mini Mac & Cheese – http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/three-cheese-mini-macs

Baked Brie – a round of brie ($6), a few tablespoons of jam ($2), a sheet of puff pastry (on sale, 2 pack for $4 – used the rest for the next thing), wrap up the packet and brush with egg, bake at 425 til brown.

Pigs in blankets – whatever good quality hot dogs on sale, cut in thirds. Cut the puff pastry in strips, wrap, bake at 425.

Melon soup shots – based off this recipe, but I used cantaloupe and served them in small plastic shot glasses http://invitadoinviernoeng.blogspot.com/2011/07/school-of-tapas-melon-soup-shots.html

Roasted nuts – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eatingwell/spiced-nuts-recipe_b_797277.html

Pizza dip – I do this in a mini crock pot, but I’m sure there are baked versions as well. 1/2 block cream cheese, 1C shredded cheese, top off with marinara & 1 Tbsp of italian seasoning. Heat in crock pot for 2 hours, stir, heat another 30 min and serve with toasted baguette.

Do you know her Fiance at all? My bridesmaids set up a fun game during my bachelorette. They asked my Fiance some questions about how we met, first kiss, most romantic date, etc, and I had to guess his answers. If I was wrong I drank. If I was right, everyone else drank. It ended up being pretty funny.

I hosted a bachlorette many years ago.  I’m just throwing this out there in case you really want to do a “naughty” game.  LOL

We had a bunch of cucumbers and peelers – we had to carve the cucumbers into the shape of male genitalia.    The winner got a prize.   The funniest part was that the bride-to-be’s mom won! 

You can go to places like Spencer’s and they have aisles full of stuff/games for bachlorette parties.

2 awesomely good quick and easy appetizers…both using  won ton wrappers ( less then 3 bucks)

1st-along with won tons- 1 pack of hilshire farms mini smoked turkey weenies ( about 3 bucks again) some shredded cheese ( i used colby or monterry jack) 

cut up onion, cut up green pepper

sliced the weenies and place them along with a pinch of cheese and top with pinch of onion and green pepper- SALT & PEPPER this..then close them up .. deep fry for bout 30 seconds to 1 min- they are perfect lil bite sized snacks almost like egg rolls without the cabbage!

 

2nd- won top wrappers again.place a hersehy kiss in center of each- close up. deep fry until lightly brown- remove from oil, place on paper towel- then sprinkle with powder sugar

This treat is roughly $6 and you can make up to 60 !!! and they are a great “kisses” theme

 

 

as for events.. i would try some nice games, you can customize them to almost anything.. i do one for baby showers using candy bars as the clues- but you can take that and make it work for wedding related  too.. example….

whats this wedding costing? HUNDRED GRAND

what can the groom be called for marrying her mr??  SMARTIE

what did he need to ask? a RING POP

what do you call the bridal party o night out? HOT TAMELES

etc, i have tons,lol

 

Have fun!

My bachelorette party was a girls’ night “in” and there wasn’t a whole lot of need to fill the time.  It was really just a night of hanging out with the girls and provided a lot of time to catch up, laugh and just have fun.  The night included, food, drinks, gifts and a “secret panty game”.  My Maid/Matron of Honor had the guests each bring a new pair of panties (for me), unwrapped.  The panty was supposed to somehow represent the guest bringing them (for example, a friend that loves animal print, brought a zebra print pair).  I didn’t know who brought what.  It was my task to figure out who brought which pair.  The plan was to have me take a shot for everyone I got wrong and to give a shot for every one I got right.  (In the end I had waaaay too many pairs to guess, I would have been loaded!)  It was a lot of fun and I ended up with a ton of new undies!
