Is the anything more fun than a bachelorette party? And who doesn’t love a good theme? Recently my sister-in-law got married and her maid of honor (aka my mother in law) agreed to let me plan the bachelorette. I get so into this kind of stuff so I was very excited! The bride loves the beach and Maine and my other sister in law suggested a drag show so we all ended up in Ogunquit/York Maine for an amazing show and flamingo themed beach bach! Below you will find everything you need for the perfect flamingo themed beach bach!
I didn’t go *crazy* on decorations because I knew we would only be at the airbnb for a short period of time between everything, but I still wanted her to walk into a super girly and fun decorated room.
CONFESSION : the lighting on the actual day of the party was awful! I ended up bringing most of the decor back home and taking more pictures for this post so that’s why some of the pictures look a little different!
If I remember correctly I’m pretty sure one of the first things the bride decided was her wedding hashtag. I knew I wanted to display their hashtag #slaybisquared somewhere.
When I saw these banners from Lantz and Lady I was in LOVE! She offers so many different font options which are fully customizable or she has some ready to go with really funny/cute sayings. The banner she sent was such high quality! You could actually see the glitter from far away and the letters flowed perfectly.
She also sent the MOST adorable straws and confetti that were perfect for our theme.
We used the confetti to hide the tape holding the banners and sprinkled the rest EVERYWHERE! We even put some on the floor leading to the bride’s room.
If you are planning an event you need to check out her shop! She was also kind enough to offer all my readers a discount code!
15% off any order over $15 from now until 10/31, just use ‘peoniesonpleasant’ as the code
I also grabbed the tassel banner and flamingo balloon on Amazon as well as the pink and gold balloons.
We put together some bachelorette survival kits for all the girls filled with goodies for the night!
Not only were the labels perfect but the boxes she sent were great quality and the perfect size for the Inflatable Floating Flamingo Drink Holder 12 Pack Swimming Pool Float Coasters Coke Cup Holder for Beverage Cans Cups & Bottles – Fun Kid & Adult Pool Party“>flamingo drink floats. She has so many different labels in her shop. Definitely a must if you are planning any type of event.
There’s so many things you can put inside these! We went with a mini champagne bottle, hair ties, Inflatable Floating Flamingo Drink Holder 12 Pack Swimming Pool Float Coasters Coke Cup Holder for Beverage Cans Cups & Bottles – Fun Kid & Adult Pool Party“>flamingo float, scavenger hunt and pen and gold tattoos. I do wish I would have included Advil but thankfully my mother in law had some!
The tattoos are from Tats4now and were not only perfect for our theme and beautiful but also professionally printed and water proof. She has so many options in her shop I seriously don’t think there’s a theme she hasn’t thought about! Her designs are beautiful and are so vibrant on the skin. They do wash off if you need them too but if you want them to last they will! My sister in law still had hers on at the wedding a week later! She also sent a cute little heart shaped sponge to apply them with which was so cute and such a thoughtful touch!
The scavenger hunts were one of my favorite things to make. We all had fun trying to complete the tasks and lots of jokes and memories were made. Our group is naturally competitive so we didn’t need a big prize to get everyone to do it, but if your group needs a little push you could definitely offer a prize of some sort for whoever wins.

Of course the whole party is for the bride BUT we really wanted to shower the bride with some fun and cute stuff. My sister-in-law (the bride) is a very giving person. She is always doing for others and sometimes does not think about herself in the process. We really wanted to make her feel extra-special with some goodies and have a night all about her!
I got this bag off of Amazon and filled it with things she could use to do something she doesn’t do often enough – RELAX. All brides are so busy so I think this is a really good and inexpensive idea. We filled it with bath bombs, eye masks, facials, and a cute ring dish.
The pillowcases were one of my absolute favorite parts for 2 reasons :
1. They were so soft and comfortable! Definitely high quality!
2. They were such an easy way to dress up her room. I originally thought about hanging a big bride balloon garland but who really wants to deal with that when your doing all this other setup? These were so easy and so cute! Plus she can actually get some use out of them!
Not only did they have the pillow cases but also a matching towel which was perfect for our theme! It was also very high quality and super cute! I LOVE the idea of getting the bride a towel because most brides will be honeymooning soon after their wedding!
Even if you aren’t having a bachelorette near the beach, I still think the towel is a must! The bride can use it on her honeymoon and laugh back at the night out!
Another goody I loved for the bride was this hat from an adorable shop filled with beautiful bridal essentials, Mod Party. It’s so beautiful and perfect for the bachelorette party and of course the honeymoon. It also served as cute decor.
The highlight of the night was definitely the drag show. If you live anywhere near Oqunquit Maine, you NEED to check out The Dueling Drag Divas show. These ladies are absolutely hilarious and seriously talented! I don’t think any of us stopped laughing through the entire show. We also havn’t stopped talking about Chi Chi and Joanna (the stars of the show) since the party! I absolutely cannot wait to go back to another show and have been pestering friends about what they want to do for their birthdays (ya know, just in case they want to attend a drag show with me?!) It is a MUST see, and of course Oguinquit is just an amazing place with ridiculously good food too! The proximity to the beach makes it a perfect beach bach spot!
All in all it was an amazing weekend! So many memories made and jokes that will live on!
