Party planning can be stressful, but armed with the right knowledge, it doesn’t have to be so! Dadchelor parties, which are basically baby showers for men, are all the rage currently. You can make your Dadchelor party incredible, memorable, and fun even if you’re on a strict budget by focusing on these essential tips for throwing the coolest Dadchelor party ever.
Choose a Dad-tastic Theme
The Dad in DADchelor might make you think golf or bad jokes, but the theme is up to you. First, you’ll need a time, a place, and a concept of what kind of party will work best. Then, choose a few activities to build your evening; classic guys’ night-out activities like barbecues and card games are never out of style.
Opt for a Manly Theme
While guys don’t have the dress code restrictions that the fairer sex does, it’s always fun to add some rugged elements to your venue to make the estrogen-challenged guests feel at home. A great way to achieve this is by creating a hunting lodge vibe. Grab some old bookshelves or milk crates (even if they’re empty) and pile them on top of each other as high as you can go.
Make it look rugged and rustic. This kind of masculine decor will add warmth and authenticity and be far less expensive than hunting down genuine antiques!
Send Manly Invitations
Men are generally okay with a simple email invite but printed and customized invitations always do the trick. Write a personalized note appreciating what the other person has done. A good practical tip is to let him know that he should bring one of his favorite albums and maybe some dad jokes to set the mood…
Serve a Guy-Friendly Menu
While food is usually one of the essential elements of a party, throwing a party for an adult male is even more critical. For a daddy-to-be party, opt for items like beef jerky, hamburgers, barbecued items, pork crisps, and mashed potatoes. You can never go wrong with chips and dips, so don’t forget to add those to the menu.
Modify Regular Baby Shower Games
Just because it’s a party for dad doesn’t mean that games are out of the equation. Honor the impending fatherhood by indulging in some intriguing games. You can have all the dads carry a balloon under their shirt and reward the person who can be faux pregnant the longest. Another game can be a diaper-changing race. The winner’s wife is sure going to be very happy.
