You’ve laughed, you’ve cried … and now you’ve got to pick a side. “The Bachelor” Season 20 comes to a close Monday, forcing Ben to make a decision regarding the two women in his life — JoJo and Lauren.
Monday will certainly be a night of can’t miss TV, and what better way to celebrate than with a group of friends. Whether you’re throwing a “Bachelor” finale viewing party, or simply hanging with a group of Ben fanatics, we’ve rounded up some party ideas to bid adieu to the latest season of the ABC reality show.
Ben only has one rose left, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go crazy with a couple of bouquets! Welcome your party guests at the door with their very own red rose. But if that’s not in the budget, a paper rose is another good option. Click HERE to learn how to make one.
Things might get emotional, so make sure you have a couple boxes of Kleenex on hand. As for actual decorations? Keep things simple with some photos of eliminated contestants and some candles (real or fake). Leave out some Ring Pop candy so your guests can feel like Ben popped the question to them.
This is probably the easiest part of throwing a “Bachelor” finale party. There is no shortage of alcohol on the show, but you’re better off keeping things light. For guests over 21 years old offer flutes of champagne to toast the happy couple. And, of course, wine is always welcome.
Put a “Bachelor” twist on “pin the tail on the donkey.” Get creative by drawing a hand on a large piece of paper and asking your guests to try and place a diamond on the ring finger. Or make things interesting by setting up your own rose ceremony. Before the episode begins, have your friends place their vote in a box for JoJo or Lauren. After the Season 20 winner is revealed find out who guessed right.
For those looking for something to keep busy throughout the episode, pass around some blank bingo cards. Have your guests fill in the spots with things like: “Lauren Cries,” “Ben Cries,” “JoJo Cries,” “Ben Says I Love You,” “Swim Date,” etc. [Find a blank printable bingo card HERE.]
"The Bachelor" Season 20 finale airs on ABC Monday, March 14 at 8 p.m. EDT.
