Brazilian-inspired Bachelorette Party Ideas: Decor to Food
How can you not feel like partying with a sunny setting like this? Let the tropical vibe inspire your tablescape decor, flavorful menu, and fruit-infused drinks!
A poolside venue would be ideal for this occasion, where you can wow the ladies with a fabulous Tropical Rhythm Outdoor Tablescape (1). Recreate the look of a tropical jungle with place settings featuring placemats of palm fronds and tropical blooms, parrot-graced plateware, plus a delightful mini tiki hut centerpiece filled with bright faux flowers. Can’t you almost hear that Rio beat playing?
A unique alternative could be a tropical fruit centerpiece (2) combining sliced and whole fruits, like watermelon, pineapple, banana, papaya, and cantaloupe, artfully arranged on a platter or tiered stand.
For starters, offer up Brazilian appetizers that are just bursting with flavor, balanced by lighter pineapple and ham appetizers on skewers (3). Then, serve a main dish of Brazilian-style beef skewers with tomato salad (4) or take your pick from these Brazilian BBQ dishes and desserts, or our tropical-inspired menu for a summer cookout.
With such a tasty spread, have guests refresh their palates at a thirst-quenching tropical drinks bar (5)! Prepare an array of fresh fruit juices, fruit-infused sangria concoctions, and chilled summer cocktails. And for the perfect cooldown, pass around trays of spiked snow cones and other frozen treats for all to enjoy!
