bachelorette parties

Can y’all believe it is December already? We already have a Christmas tree up and lights on our house. Hubs has declared himself the “exterior illumination specialist” and spent the weekend running to Target for more lights and extra extension cords. Our house has become a mini winter wonderland. We don’t have lights synchronized to music or huge inflatables in our yard but I wouldn’t put it past him for next year!

So today I wanted to share with y’all a few fun bachelorette party ideas. I know it has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas or the holiday season but I have been holding on to this post for a while and finally had time to share it! Now, y’all have already heard the story of my bachelorette party here. It was unconventional, a little crazy, and so much fun! My sister came up with some great creative ideas like a photo shoot in our old prom dresses, going to the Fort Worth Stock Yards for a country concert, and spending a morning shopping and fueling up on Starbucks. When it comes to bachelorette parties don’t feel like you have to do what is expected! If your bride is up for some adventure and loves to try new things, go for it! Here are a few ideas to  jump start your creativity and help you come up with an outrageously fantastic bachelorette party.

1.  The Wild West

My sister-in-law took old time photos with her bridesmaids during her bachelorette party and it was the cutest thing ever! Why not make the whole weekend a western theme?

2. Cooking Classes

How many girls out there have lived off of pasta because it’s all they know how to cook? Sign up for some fun cooking classes, bring some wine, and have a great time learning how to make amazing food!

3. Girl’s Weekend

No, I’m not talking about some wild bar-filled girls weekend. Is your bride more into quality time than dancing? Go shopping together or get pedicures then host an outdoor dinner party with her closest friends. Make it a meaningful weekend that is filled with lots of fun and time with her bridesmaids!

4. Glamping

This is my new favorite idea. (Madeline, when you get married get ready for this) Go camping with your girls! Set up an adorable camp site, make s’mores, and spend the weekend adventuring. You can always camp close to town so you could still go out for dinner and drinks!

Did you have a super creative bachelorette? Let us know! Remember that at the end of the day a bachelorette party isn’t about how many shots someone does or even their last “fling before the ring.” It is a time to celebrate the friendship you have with your bridesmaids and friends. Make it what YOU want, not what everyone else says you should have.

Stay merry, friends!

girl’s night out baby shower

Let’s talk about babies. Babies are cute, smell nice (most of the time), have soft skin, and rock pastels better than anyone. Baby showers traditionally embrace all of the things we love about new borns- showers are cute, pastel, and super sweet. I love an adorable baby shower or gender reveal party just as much as the next girl. However, I also love the idea of celebrating a new mom and the things she loves to do sans-baby. Some of my girlfriends love karaoke  getting their nails done, or going out dancing. Those are thing that become a lot harder to do once you have a kid. That is why I have created this glam girls night out baby shower idea that really has nothing to do with babies but everything to do with being a young and fun woman. You could throw this for a friend before she has her baby as a last hurrah or even a few months after she has a baby to give her a night off with her friends. Either way there will be lots of dancing, laughter, and fun!

Wouldn’t this be such a fun shower? The invitation is a little girl’s birthday invite but if you change the wording it would be perfect! And how amazing would those paper flowers be for a photo booth backdrop? We have seen some DIY instructions for similar ones here. Throw in a nail bar and a karaoke machine and it would be a super glamourous and fantastic party!

Keep throwing those adorable baby showers and gender reveal parties! They are sweet, meaningful, and help new parents get a ton of diapers. However, if you have a friend who has had six baby showers and need a little girl time this may be the way to go. Or if you have a friend who recently had a baby and needs to be reminded that she is still young, hot, and fun then a girls night out may be just what the doctor ordered!

Celebrate the new baby that is joining your world, celebrate your girlfriends, and just plain celebrate! We will be celebrating right along side you.

As always, send us pics if you throw an incredible shower!

Stay Merry.
