I'm planning a bachelorette party for the middle of June and need menu suggestions! We're doing a French Bohemian theme, starting at home with drinks/food/lingerie shower, and then hitting the town. We're going to do the absinthe/water/sugar, but I'd like to have a simple vodka-based cocktail also for those who don't care for the taste. I'd like to do heavy appetizers to fill us up before the evening's debauchery, but not a sit-down meal.
Also, I'm flying in for the wedding out of state, and we'll be having it at the bride's apartment, so I'd like to stick with minimal prep and clean-up...I'd imagine that at least two of the other bridesmaids will be free to give me a hand, but we won't have much in the way of time or space. Would like to do 1-2 hot, heartier things, a few cold/simple, and then bread and cheese, and a dessert. Suggestions much appreciated!
