One week and counting until The Bachelor Final Rose episode airs. We have followed the ups and downs of group dates. We have been shocked by the number of naps Corinne takes. And now we are waiting the last few days until Nick Viall picks his “one true love.” So, grab your wine glasses, it is time to throw a Final Rose viewing party.
Of course, Rose and champagne are musts but start the party with a drink inspired by one of America’s favorites, Corinne. We love her, we hate her, but now let’s drink like her. In a martini shaker, add one cumber slice, a crushed mint leaf, vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake and serve Corinne’s Cucumber Martini.
To set the mood use rose petals to cover the snack table and entry way into the house. Then to remind us of all the amazing women that joined us for season 21, print out the audition photos of the women and hang them around the living room. Finally, we must pay homage to the seven words we live by, “We are here for the right reasons.” Using a large poster board create a sign with this phrase and hang it up.
During the party, we can’t go hungry, so here are some foods that represent this season of The Bachelor. First are Whales Baked Snack Crackers, for my personal favorite, Alexis, the aspiring dolphin trainer. Then to get into Raven’s small town roots, cook up some of Arkansas’ famous foods, BBQ sandwiches. We can’t forget about the newest Bachelorette, Rachel, by serving some good ole’ Texas brisket tacos. Lastly, because it’s the theme of the night, have a bowl of Ring Pops out for your guests.
We can’t have a fun Bachelor filled night without a drinking game; it is all the contestants seem to do. Take a shot of whiskey, Bachelor Nick’s favorite drink (yes, I found this out with some serious snooping), each time you hear a key phrase.
The Key Phrases: “I didn’t think it would be this hard,” “Ready for love,” “I could see myself,” “I’m ready to be engaged,” “I love him/her,” “I’m here to find love,” Whenever someone look out into the distance deep in thought (not a phrase but will definitely happen).
The Final Rose
The night is not complete without Nick Viall (hopefully) finding love. So, before the night is over hand everyone a rose and ask them to vote for their favorite pick. Place two vases on a table labeled with the final two women’s names. Then have each person place their rose into the vase of the women they believe Nick will choose.
After three failed attempts at finding love hopefully, Nick can find the right women, he could spend the rest of his life with, at least for Bachelor Nation’s sake.
