only the best bachelorette bash for the bestie

it's ok to use your best friend's bachelorette party as creative therapy...isn't it?
  
you're invited to:
like every fun party...there are rules.
read carefully.
i'm not a debbie-downer.
the main table, full of snacks and drinks and fun. :)
 i'm not sure about the rest of you, but i tend to judge a party by the food.
just being honest.
as my wise mother has said on many occasions 
"you can spend thousands of dollars on a party, but if the food is terrible, you might as well have stayed home."
i completely agree.
what can i say, i love to eat!

snacks for the evening included:
hot pink cotton candy flavored popcorn
sugar dot cookies
hershey kisses and york peppermint patties
twizzlers
cake pops!
yogurt covered raisins
chips and salsa and guac 
the beverage station was stocked with:
fresca
dr pepper 10 (a.k.a. go go juice. don't judge.)
ginger ale & champagne for mimosas
cranberry-pomegranate juice for pom-settias
this was the motto for the evening.
in case the guests weren't sure what kind of night they were in for, i think this sign removed all confusion. i wanted everyone to have a fun and relaxing night full of lots of laughter and memory making.
 a party just isn't a party without bunting!
you know those cardboard sheets they have in the scrapbook paper racks?
they make excellent bases for painting your bunting. 
 in the middle of the living room, we had a party table full of games, boas, hottie-whistles, beads, and of-course, tiaras!
mad-libs are the best.... 
 each girl was given a pink bag with a pink nail file and a bottle of the bride's favorite nail polish, "topless and barefoot" by essie.
the bride and groom are honeymooning in cancun, which gave me the perfect opportunity for a fun play on words.
the three ladies in this photo with me are fantastic.
i met them in high school choir,
ya i was a choir kid,
and to this day i still consider them some of my sweetest friends.
isn't it fantastic how the Lord puts friendships together? 
 the bride and i at dinner.
she's going to be the most beautiful bride!
i'm so excited to celebrate her big day with her! 

and just when you thought you were partied out,,,
don't forget about breakfast!
it is most important meal of the day after all!

the morning menu included:
fresh fruit
breakfast cassarole
orange juice
iced coffee
chocolate chip muffins
 left over cake pops... 
 each girl was asked to share memories or pieces of advice with the bride.  i wrote them down on white hearts and scattered them on the table for her to read at breakfast. 
i had such a fantastic time getting ready for this event, and i'm so glad everything came out perfect for the bride!  she deserves nothing but the best!
