BLANCHE! DOROTHY! SOPHIA! ROSE! Grab your squad — we’re planning the best Golden Girls bachelorette party and these are the ideas you NEED to use for yours! Get in on the fun below + subscribe for other shenanigans like this!
Grab your girls, pack your suitcases for Miami — or SHADY PINES, MA! to be more specific — and order up some cheesecake! It’s time to tell your bachelorettes, “Thank you for being a friend!” as you celebrate your last night out as a single lady! We’re gonna help you party like you’re from St. Olaf with these cool Golden Girls bachelorette party ideas for you and your squad.
From party decorations like Stay Golden balloons, Golden Girls bachelorette party plates, napkins, cups, and tablecloths, “Thank You For Being a Friend” party banner, food tent cards, signature drinks, and yes, even Golden Girls bachelorette wine glasses to party games like, “Sophia’s Tangled Hair Maze”, Golden Girls bingo, and “Any Way You Slice It“! We even found silly mad lib style games, take-home party favors, Golden Girls bachelorette party tees, socks, and Granny Panties. Yes, we found everything you could ever want as a true fan of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia — as you hang with YOUR crew of pals.
Which Golden Girl are you? I’ve always been told I’m a Dorothy. I think it is because I’m tall and mild-mannered. I like Rose for her humor and optimism, Blanche for her witty and wild remarks, and Sophia because EVERYONE loves Sophia!
Tell me which Golden Girl you are… and let’s get started. And as Sophia would say, “… Picture it, Sicily, 1922…“, I can practically hear Dorothy yelling, “MA!!!”
Who knew all of those years of watching reruns would totally pay off as homework for this?! :) Hahaha. Enjoy!
NOTE: Prefer a Golden Girls bridal shower? A brunch? A Golden Girls themed party of another kind? No worries — all the things found here are pretty much geared for any GG party of your dreams, so have at it!

8-11. Make Cocktails Based on Your Favorite Golden Girl
For Dorothy: An Old-Fashioned. Or maybe a red wine.
For Blanche: A Peach Cocktail (she is from Georgia) or a Margarita! (I recall her saying something about, “Mixing a margarita in a sailor’s mouth”. Ha!)
And “drink up, slut puppy!” Quote by Sophia, wine glass by AlwaysHappyHour.
For Rose: A Long Island Iced Tea.
For Sophia: A Whiskey On The Rocks.
That’s what I think, anyway: there is a fantastic blog post on which cocktail to make (with recipes) based on your favorite GG over at Kitchn. :)
Once you pick the types of the drinks you’ll offer, name them after the characters and have them printed onto a signature cocktails sign like this by Magnolia Papers and Co. And then make sure you have all the fixings!
If you want to keep things simple, just serve wine! And serve it up in these Du Vino wine glasses.
And of course, offer the wine in these custom Golden Girls bachelorette wine labels on the front of the bottles! By CoconutGarden.
Or honestly, beer. And you HAVE TO serve them in these. I’m going a little nuts on the photos here, guys, but I don’t care. These Golden Girls bachelorette beer glasses are AMAZING and everyone needs a set at home. By GuyPiper.
In case you’re wondering, as I was, do they have wine glasses, too? YES THEY DO! Right here!
12. Do Shots
What is a bachelorette party without a few shots? We recommend something Miami inspired, like Pineapple Malibu you can get from Drizly — or anything, really! (P.S. Pineapple anything works great in this theme, too.
13. Serve a Fun Inspired Menu
I mean, you can’t *live* on cheesecake. Well, you can. But maybe throw in a pizza, or some recipes from this fun cookbook by Christopher Styler.
