My Bachelorette Party!

Honestly, I am not a huge fan of traditional bachelorette parties. I feel that these parties can be a burden on the bridesmaids and just a little silly. My MOH knew my feelings towards bachelorette parties for years, but she really wanted me to have “my day” where everyone was there to celebrate me as the bride-to-be. When I think about it that way, it’s a really sweet idea!

I told my MOH to keep my party classy, low key and simple. Admittedly, I am a bit of a homebody, but I wanted to do something out of the ordinary for my party. I had taken a cooking class with my mom years ago at Sur la Table and later learned that you can book a private cooking class. It’s not a secret that I like to cook {hello blog attempt #3!} so I knew this would be a good idea for my bachelorette party and that is just what my girls planned for me.

After getting together for lunch, I met the girls for pre-class drinks and then it was off to Sur la Table. I was greeted by a bunch of my favorite ladies (my mom, aunts, cousins & bridesmaids). Sur la Table setup a long table for us to eat at once our three course meal was ready. The best part was that it was all gluten-free! It included shrimp, steak, salad and green beans with a butter pudding for dessert. All of the ingredients are pre-measured and neatly laid out for your group, but you still get to prep, chop and cook the ingredients. We all loved our dinner, but the dessert wasn’t our favorite.

We were split up into small groups of 3 or 4 around the kitchen. Each group prepared the same foods and the instructor lead us through each step. I proudly sported a bride-to-be sash and there was no shortage of bride-themed props. We were also allowed to bring in your own alcohol, so there was plenty of champagne and prosecco to go around. At the end of the class the instructor provides everyone with the recipes to take home.

If you are unsure of bachelorette party ideas, I encourage you to think outside of the box and find something you would enjoy doing with your favorite ‘maids. I absolutely loved this class, and we all had so much fun. I recommend taking a class at Sur la Table and personally look forward to doing it again. My family and friends want to make it a yearly tradition  because it was such a good time. This class was the perfect party for me!
