Bachelor viewing parties will never be the same.
New Year. New Bachelor. Well...kind of.
So there's a bit of controversy surrounding this season's choice for the Bachelor, a man who is not named Peter. If you haven't been a fan of the most shocking and dramatic show on TV over the last couple years you may not be familiar with 36 year old Arie Luyendyk Jr. so I'll fill you in. He's a race car driver and real estate agent who actually won a previous season of the Bachelorette but is now looking for love among a group of women who all oddly seemed to be named Lauren (#basic). Like him or not, we must give him thanks and praise for giving us an excuse for a Monday girl's night.
Check out my set-up for the viewing party of the premiere episode of Jojo's season of the Bachelorette a few seasons back.
Guys! I just got a delivery from Chris Harrison!

Yes, the napkins are folded to look like tuxedos. How. Friggin. Cute!! And they were super easy. Check out the video below for a how-to.
So there's a whole lot of names to remember before they start dropping like flies. I find I usually resort to saying "she really had a connection with that former software salesmen" or "the tickle monster guy has to go". This time I decided to make a little visual guide by way of trading cards complete with a profile photo and very important information on the back (age, height, profession, etc). They were a hit!! And definitely were used throughout the weeks to keep up with our Bachelorette bracket. It's a fun way to predict and compare who we think will stay and who will stick around. Life & Style magazine has a fun bracket designed specifically for this season that you can download and print here.

Never go through the struggle of having to remember a contestant's name ever again. These Bachelor trading cards were a great conversation starter! Designed by Paper & Planes.
