5 Essentials for Your “Bachelorette” Finale Viewing Party

Who will win Rachel’s heart?

It would be a shame to watch the dramatic season finale of “The Bachelorette” by yourself.

So don’t!

Text your girls, order delicious food, dabble in a little mixology and get competitive over your fave dude (although, ahem – it should have been Dean)!

Here are 5 things your “Bachelorette” viewing party cannot go without.

Good food

Bite Squad tacos

Even though you rarely, if ever, see the contestants on “The Bachelorette” actually eating, you cannot host a viewing party without snacks! But since the finale is on a Monday night, ain’t nobody got time to plan, prep, cook and clean up a bunch of food after a long day at work.

So delivery it is, obviously!

And while Rachel and her suitors are in killer shape and probably maintain a pretty healthy diet, we suggest going all out. Hey, vegging out in front of the TV goes hand-in-hand with handfuls of junk food. Am I right?

Here are some Bite Squad delivery ideas, perfect for hanging with the girls…

  • Get fancy with sushi
  • Lighten up with subs
  • Please a crowd with Mexican fare
  • Reach for hummus and gyros
  • Go with finger foods like wings & curds

And there is no shame in having your pals pitch in, either! Ask your peeps what food puts them in the mood (for watching “The Bachelorette,” of course) and put in an order together.

Let’s make a toast…

No girlfriend get-together is complete without a little bubbly. And it’s only fitting to drink rosé while watching a rose ceremony.

This Rosé and Raspberry Cocktail from Luci’s Morsels is a little bit sweet, a tad tart and all around pretty-in-pink. Plus, it’s super simple to put together, so you won’t have to spend more time in the kitchen than necessary.

Make it even more fun by making toasts before imbibing – just like they do on the show. (Do we all remember Eric’s dad’s toast during Rachel’s hometown visit? “To opening doors that no man can shut and closing doors that no man can open.” Um, okay…)

Who in your group can make the most hilarious toast?

Will you accept this rose?

“The Bachelor” series wouldn’t be what it is today without those iconic red roses.

Grab enough for each guest and hand them out as they arrive while asking, “Will you accept this rose?”

They get to take home a beautiful party favor, and you’ll be the hostess with the mostess.

Fun games

Sure, the ABC hit show is entertaining in and of itself. But up the ante with a few games!

For a few bucks you can download games like The Bachelorette Drinking GameBingo or Trivia on etsy. It’s sure to bring a few laughs and some competitiveness. Especially if you buy prizes for the winners (think red nail polish, candles or mini bottles of sparkling wine)!

If you prefer not to make a purchase, simply play your own “Bachelorette” drinking game.

Take a drink every time:

  • Someone cries
  • Someone says “journey” or “the right reasons”
  • Chris Harrison says “dramatic” or “shocking”
  • Rachel kisses Eric, Peter or Bryan

Place your bets

At the beginning of the episode, when Rachel still has three men left, ask partygoers to pitch in $5-10 and guess who she’s going to choose to get down on one knee. The group who chooses the correct guy gets to split the pool.

Armed with delivery, drinks, games and party favors, you and your guests will have no shortage of excitement during “The Bachelorette” finale. We’ll try to enjoy it too, but. Dean…

Plan your viewing party.
