Weekend Lookbook May 21-22, 2011

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend, we had a great time over here! This weekend I threw my sister her Bachelorette party and we had the best time, lots and lots of funny moments… including getting the car (the one that was toting all 7 of us girls) was towed!! It was definitely a weekend full of laughter and memories none of us will soon forget.

Photo 1: I set up a little photo booth in our house to take fun and silly snap shots, the last couple parties I’ve thrown we’ve done this is and it is always so much fun! This time I used sparkly turquoise wrapping paper as the back drop, it was girly + festive. The best part about this is that everyone loves a good photo booth, we ended up with 80 hilarious photos. Sunday afternoon I complied them all together in photo strip forms and sent them out to all the girls! This particular photo is of my sister and I… how cute is she?!?! She totally matched her invitation I illustrated!

Photo 2: These were the fun gift baskets, I racked my brain for weeks trying to come up with something charming and “bachelorette-ish” to give to the girls… Betsy had the brilliant idea of putting together a take home margarita! I instantly loved the idea and went to work ordering the necessary details… I even ordered empty 1.7 ounce bottles and filled them up and wrapped them in a custom sticker! Along with the tiny bottles there is a lime, paper straw, lime rock candy, and a recipe card. All of this I placed in a wooden berry basked and tied it up with multi-color twine. The girl’s LOVED it… and I have to say, it might of been my favorite little detail of the party!

Photo 3: This is just a quick shot of the snack table. We went to dinner downtown, but what’s a party without a fun festive table!? We had margaritas, Mexican rice + bean parfaits, chips + salsa + guac, popcorn (a staple in my house)… and then of course we had all the treats to enjoy when we got back, including margarita cupcakes!

We had a blast the whole weekend and now we are gearing up to leave for the wedding week EARLY tomorrow morning, I’ve got to get my to do list finished in the next couple of hours!! Wish me luck!

I hope your Monday is off to a wonderful start, cheers to a fabulous week! xo- AB
