Over the weekend, I hosted my sister’s bachelorette party, which was my big event for the wedding. I had a great time planning it and wanted to share a little bit of the night with everyone.
For my sister’s invitations, I used Photoshop to create a 4×6 image that consisted of pink and zebra print. From the computer, they turned out great. So, I didn’t think about them anymore until two weeks before the party when it was time to print them. Big mistake! Since I waited until the last minute to print them out, I didn’t have any time to make corrections. Well, they ended up printing out kinda blurry. I accidentally made the card a 5×7 at first and had to go back and change the image size to a 4×6 and I think that had something to do with my issues. I learned a valuable lesson, though. Don’t wait until the last minute to print something (you would think I knew that by now)!!!
I threw a white tablecloth over my kitchen table and made it the official food table for the evening.
I LOVE these mason jars! This was the must-have item for her party. I purchased the Ball 16 oz. mason jars from Wal-Mart, but you can also find them at Amazon. The daisy stamped lids came from Cupcake Express. I purchased a set of 24 for $20.00. And for the straws, I actually had those in my cabinet already.
I made chocolate covered pretzels for one of my apothecary jars and purchased pink strawberry marshmallows for the other one.
And, you can’t forget cute napkins! Did you know that Wal-Mart has a bachelorette party section?!?! I didn’t either until about a month ago. I actually got these napkins on clearance in that section for $1.00 each.
The next thing I had was chocolate covered strawberries. And, just let me say that making these yummy treats are a lot messier than I remembered. I had chocolate all over me, the counter, and the floor.
And, the cake!!! I have a lady from my hometown that makes all of my cakes. She has made Kate’s birthday cakes for the past 3 years, her christening cake, and she will also be making my sister’s wedding cake. She is truly awesome!!!
One of the things that I had everyone do was to leave advice for Anna on a piece of decorated paper. I plan on taking these sheets and making her a collage for her home. I haven’t quite decided how I am going to do this, but I will post about it when I make a decision. 🙂
