Last weekend I hosted my first ever bachelorette party! A group of us headed to Destin, FL to soak up the sunshine and celebrate Rebecca's last few weeks of being a Miss!
Being a self proclaimed Type A/Perfectionist, I knew this had to be the most perfect weekend ever--from the food, to the decorations, to the weather (ok so I can't control that, but a girl can dream). I ordered
way too much food and handled the decorations. Also, I've decided that I should be a "professional stager" if they have such jobs.
Going with the color scheme of pinks and golds with pops of blue (for the beach), the decorations turned out so girly and whimsical, I'm in love!
The bride-to-be and I arrived Thursday evening--she cracked open a bottle of wine, popped in a wedding movie (I have TEN in my personal collection alone...WHY?!) and let me do what I do best.
We got really lucky that the condo had this adorable white baker's rack that I used to stage as a sort of buffet. Only I, or my mother, would get excited over furniture! The girls thought I brought it with me specifically for the party, and I probably would have, had there been room in the car.
Only, don't ask me to make paper lanterns. I can pull together a cohesive look out of basically nothing, but cannot for the life of me put them together. Thank goodness for Rebecca!
We spent a majority of the time on the beach--Spray, Tan, Turn, Repeat--and I barely got burnt! Compare this to last time I was at the beach and I say it was a success in the tanning department. P.S. How pretty does the water look in this picture I took with my iPhone?
Friday night, we went to a few bars at Baytowne Wharf. I highly recommend Rum Runners home of the Dueling Pianos--it was very entertaining (drunk people watching). Side Note: they take requests as long as it's accompanied by a tip. Someone outbid and paid $60 for the LSU fight song to be played over Florida, Auburn, Ole Miss's fight songs.
Saturday, we hit the beach, went out to dinner, and hosted her lingerie shower--while watching another wedding movie (y'all I have TEN).
It was a whirlwind of a weekend, but the perfect mini vacation!
I can't wait until the wedding!
