How to Throw the Ultimate 'Bachelorette' Viewing Party

The season premiere of The Bachelorette is tonight! We already know JoJo's season is going to be the most dramatic one yet, and the best way to kick off the season is by hosting a viewing party for yourself and your friends. Get excited—we've worked out all the details for your amazing viewing party!

The Invites

Date Cards


When else are you going to have the opportunity to hand out date cards? You can even deliver them to each of your guests, leaving them without being seen (a la Chris Harrison, of course). 

The Activities



It is time to rank these fellas. Print out brackets for each of your friends and make sure they fill out their picks before the premiere starts. Keep your brackets until the end of the season to see who picked the winner!

Bachelorette Lingo Bingo


Although each season is different, the same Bachelor lingo finds its way into every episode. Play this game throughout the night to see which overused words and phrases pop up first.

DIY Rose Necklaces 


This craft is perfect for those lengthy commerical breaks. These rose necklaces are super cute, and your guests are going to love having something to take home with them after the party!

Contestant Sign-Up


Have all the single ladies at your party fill out the sign-up sheet actual contestants use to apply for the show. It will be up to them whether or not they choose to actually submit theirs.



Each guest should have a rose with a handwritten note on it to take home after the viewing party. This can also act as an invitation to the watch party for next week's episode—woohoo, you made it another week! Make sure you ask the age old question: "Will you accept this rose?"

The Food and Drinks

Stud Muffins


Whip up a few batches of your favorite muffins and top each one off with a photo of this season's bachelors. We have a feeling your guests will enjoy these stud muffins!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries 


We can't tell what's cuter—these strawberries or the lucky bachelors vying for JoJo's heart? That will be for your guests to decide!

Cocktail Drink Tags


These drink tags are super easy to make and a really cute way to keep track of your drink for the night.

Single Rose Cupcakes


These cupcakes are too pretty to eat—but they also taste way too good not to eat.
