Bachelorette Party: A “Guy’s Night Out” In Raleigh
Planning a themed bachelorette party is the perfect way to commemorate the last fling before the ring. For Melanieʼs Bachelorette Party in Downtown Raleigh, Priscilla Erwin of Orangerie Events planned a girlsʼ night out centered around a guys’ night out theme.
Sullivanʼs Steakhouse in downtown Raleigh provided the ideal backdrop for this non-traditional bachelorette party that highlighted a sexy sultriness with hints of masculinity. The restaurant’s private dining room, complete with dark wood, built-in bookcases and old-world charm, was the perfect setting for an intimate celebration. To complement the venue and create an alluring atmosphere, Priscilla selected a color palette of black, silver and red. A modern, black-swirled linen created the foundation for a chic tablescape, with rentals from Classic Party Rentals Raleigh.
Priscilla used mirror ornaments attached to red wineglasses as place cards, and the tables were set with black chargers with diamond rims on ornate silver place mats.
A red napkin “bow tie” was placed on top of each customized menu, and matching floral centerpieces adorned the table, giving the room a touch of feminine flair. Each chair at the dinner table was draped with a hanging necktie to play along with the masculine theme. Attendees dressed the part by wearing menʼs dress shirts, ties and fedoras.
Sullivanʼs Steakhouse Raleigh prepared an incredible feast for the ladies, with dishes ranging from succulent appetizers to mouth-watering steaks and, of course, the restaurant’s wildly popular Knock Out cocktails. For the sweetest part of the meal, decadent cupcakes creatively decorated with sexy cutouts replicating the women were served. Continuing with the evening’s theme, the ladies spent quality time together around the poker table and enjoyed hand-selected cigars and scotch.
According to Priscilla, revamping the traditional bachelorette party, as she did with Melanie’s soiree, just takes some creative thinking. “When planning a ‘farewell to being single’ bash, don’t be afraid to think outside the box,” Priscilla suggests.
