Being the best man is an honor, but it comes with some important duties before the big day. Before your best bud says “I do,” make sure you give him a bachelor party he and all the guests will remember forever.
It’s time to create unforgettable memories through a graffiti-themed bachelor party!
Why Plan a Bachelor Party?
Often called the groom’s “last night of freedom,” a bachelor’s party is a great way to celebrate the upcoming marriage. Most partieshappen in spring or summer, and can be as simple as a dinner night in the backyard with a few close friends or as extravagant as a weekend getaway at the beach.
If you’re looking for a fun and memorable way to celebrate this special day, consider hosting a graffiti-themed party. It lets everyone get creative, with guests encouraged to make art and vibrant memories.
Prep the Decor
A fantastic graffiti-themed party is all about self-expression. You don’t have to be a graffiti artist or creative to enjoy the party. All you need are colorful spray paints and a no-mess graffiti backdrop:
Canvas panels: You can place canvas panels to create a massive wall where everyone can get creative. This type of backdrop is ideal if you want to give your graffiti art as a gift to the groom.
Cellophane graffiti wall: This is a no-mess, easily disposable alternative to a vast wall or canvas panels. This graffiti backdrop lets you make art on cellophane sheets stretched between trees or poles.
How to Create a Cellophane Graffiti Wall
Get creative without the fear of vandalizing a property. Here’s everything you’ll need to create your cellophane graffiti wall:
Cellophane stretch wrap — at least 2,000 feet in length and 17-inch in width
Drop cloth — optional to keep the flooring clean from spray paint
Look for two or more vertical poles or trees if you’re planning an outdoor party.
Slide the broom handle inside the roll of the cellophane. This is to make wrapping safe and hassle-free.
Start low on the ground. Wrap the cellophane around one of the trees twice, ensuring the wrap is tight as you go.
Walk to the next vertical pole or tree while holding the broom. Keep the wrap vertical as you walk, allowing it to spin and unwind as you move.
When you’re approximately a foot away from the pole or tree, prevent the cellophane roll from spinning freely and stretch the existing wrap to reach the vertical item.
Once the wrap is in contact with the pole or tree, continue wrapping while allowing it to spin freely.
Repeat the step above, raising the cellophane with each complete circuit. Ensure there’s an overlap of about 3 inches in the layers.
To secure the wall, ensure the overlaps stick together.
Prepare a colorful variety of spray paints to start the fun.
Get wild and creative, inviting your guests to paint something for the groom.
Get the Groom’s Outfit
In a world of concrete and color, hail the groom as the king of the concrete jungle. Dress him up with a cape decorated with your artwork and a crown. You can also get the groom a shirt and novelty sash.
Gather the Lights and Music
For an indoor graffiti-themed bachelor party, you might consider using blacklights to make the décor pop better. Add neon-colored items that will glow underneath the lights.
Prepare a variety of colored glow party paints and neon pens guests can use to cover each other in amazing artwork. For an evening outdoor celebration, opt for bright or colorful lights to create a vibrant atmosphere.
To set the tone of the party, blast some of the groom’s favorite party songs. Even better, hire a DJ to keep the party going.
Create a Dress Code
You won’t believe how easy it is to get everyone dressed for the party — a white shirt and jeans is all. Remind guests to wear clothing they don’t mind getting designed with a graffiti makeover. If you want more pops of color at the party, ask guests to wear colorful streetwear.
Make a Food and Drink Menu
Go with any food that’s bright and colorful — such as donuts, burgers, tacos and street-style fries — to add to the urban vibe. If the party will happen in a backyard, consider having a barbecue. The whole process lends itself well to bonding with one another.
Spruce up the party with famous cocktails and a unique beer selection to impress guests and the groom. Also, consider asking if he has any specific food requests or preferences to make the celebration even more special for him!
It’s Time to Celebrate
With vibrant art, good food and the laughter of guests, this graffiti bachelor party is sure to delight the king of the concrete jungle. Celebrate the husband-to-be with this unique get-together.
