Bachelorette Decorations

You'll have to excuse my absence last Thursday and Friday.  There was a lot going on, what with my BACHELORETTE WEEKEND being prepped.  When Friday finally rolled around, I was a bit busy.
I told Haley that I wanted a bachelorette weekend here in DC, so everyone could stay at my place and we could take public transit to and from our Friday night excursions.  
I am a superlucky girl, and was able to corral 6 girls up to DC to stay with me: my wonderful maid-of-honor, of-age cousins, and my best friend from 7th grade.  A party like that requires some pre-planning and special decorations.  
 First in line, we picked up a dozen Georgetown Cupcakes for the festivities.  They're well-known for their red velvet, but my favorites are chocolate ganache and coconut.  Yum yum!

 Haley and I blew up some balloons that Summer bought, and we created a little halo around the bar area.  You can tell where our priorities fall.

 John Paul bought two beautiful bouquets for Valentine's Day, and and we wanted to keep them looking good for the weekend. Pink and purple tulips were perfect for a girly couple of days!

 We also put together a little photo background with yellow and white crepe paper, plus Haley made a cute-as-a-button dotted garland with metallic gold, pink, ivory papers and excerpts from bodice rippers.

Between that and these heart-shaped sunglasses, we were in business for some fun times!  
Tomorrow I'll post a few pictures from our Friday night excitement- we had quite the evening with lots of sequins and eyeliner.  


  1. Ohhhhh, I love all your decorations. Getting all that stuff around and hung up, etc. can be almost (but not quite) as much fun as the actual event! Sounds as if you girls had a great time. Did you see my cute Valentine's Day lunch table on Facebook?? I'm unapologetically claiming that you girls got that "cutesy decorating" gene from your grandma! XXX - G'ma

  2. You're absolutely right, Grandma! It's definitely your doing, and your lunch table was to-die-for adorable. xoxo
