New Bachelorette/Girls Night Out Collection

I'm super excited to show you the pictures my sister, Rebecca, took of my Bachelorette Party Collection setup I styled last week. Super easy and fun to throw a fabulous party for your friend, sister or cousins last night out! :) I wanted to stick with the typical hot pink and black theme b/c after thinking about it - what bachelorette party isn't pink? :) Of course, all colors can be changed to your liking and color scheme :)
First Off: The Invitation. Sets the tone for the event :) Purchase at my etsy shop for only $15 and print them yourself or upload to your favorite photo finisher (Target, Shutterfly, etc.)
We all know how expensive weddings can get but I assure you a similar setup to this can be created under $100 so if everyone pitched in $10 you could make it extra special for the bride-to-be. The satin linens I had laying around since I use them for my Bridal Expo's. You don't need to use as much as I did -- but since I had a bunch, I used it all :) You could simply buy a piece of Fabric from Hobby Lobby (I swear it's 40-50% off every other week) and simply use it to cover a table. Bring Martini/Wine/Margarita glasses from home. I filled mine with decorative crystals that I had from my daughter's room but you wouldn't even need to do that - just simply fill with your beverage of choice and add some ribbon.
I made vanilla cupcakes and bought the zebra liners from The Sugar Diva {also got the balloons from there too-- such a fun site, check it out!} and borrowed the cute cupcake stands from my mother-in-law. Add these fun cupcake toppers I made and you have yourself a cheap but pretty little display.
P.S. Why didn't I make chocolate cupcakes?? Insert a big DUH here. They would have been wayyy cuter with these cupcake liners. Guess I was only thinking of myself since I like vanilla :)
Flowers courtesy of Town and Country Gardens (they were actually flowers my youngest sister, who is a florist, made my daughter for Valentine's Day) and the fun Vase Corset is from Social Couture. (Another fun site you must checkout). Only $15 and you can change the ribbon for your next event :)
Here's the banner I created. Banners are my must have for a party. If you're not going to decorate at all at least put up a fun banner - it totally adds to the party! :)
I got the chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby (I think they are $1.49 each) and traced matching scrapbook paper to spice them up! Super cute! I made similar ones for my sister's Wedding Sweets Table that spelled out "Love is Sweet"
Saving the best for last....Lillycakes! If you haven't tried one you must - they are SO yummy! I knew I had to order these and Kelly made them so cute to match my theme! There are tons of flavors to choose from, but red velvet is my fav so that's what I ordered :)
Thanks for looking! Everything else not mentioned I got at Hobby Lobby on sale. (Zebra rug, small zebra buckets and feathers). Everything will be listed in my etsy shop VERY soon to purchase for your next Girls Night Out! Invitation, Banner, Cupcake Toppers, Water Bottle Labels and Favor Tags/Signs :)
XOXO, Michelle

Bachelorette Collection

Well it's all ready to go! Just waiting for my sister to take some pictures later today of the setup I styled for my Bachelorette Party Collection! Super cute! I went with the typical black/hot pink/white zebra theme b/c really what girls night out or bachelorette party isn't wild and pink? ;) Other color schemes will be available as well though for the "I'm so over pink" ladies. Full post coming early next week. Happy Friday!
