Two of my best friends got married at the end of August, and it was my absolute pleasure to be able to play host for at least part of the bachelorette party. One of the things I will always remember about throwing this type of party is to always gear it towards the bride. Not everyone is interested in going to a place covered in male genitalia, and it’s always nice to have the option to keep the bachelorette as classy as the bride wants it to be. That being said, Breakfast At Tiffany’s is one of this brides ultimate favourite movies, so we (the maid of honour and I) thought it might be a really fun theme for the party!
We started the night out at one of the bride’s favourite restaurants for dinner and drinks. Upon arrival, everyone was given a string of (fake) pearls to go with our theme.
After dinner, we came back to my place for the lingerie shower. Here is how I decorated:
I love the look of these types of tassel garland, so I made up a few of them in the colours from the movie.
Drink table! I created names for all the drinks and the food that were lines from the movie.
Between the two of us, the maid of honour and I had both seen recipes for alcoholic gummy bears on pinterest. I just wish I had been able to sample them. I’m told they were really good though! I also had regular gummy bears for those of us who couldn’t drink. There were a variety of recipes online. The general idea is that you put the bears in a container and cover them with vodka (or whatever alcohol you like), then cover them and put them in the fridge. The recipes were all different when it came to time, but anywhere from 2 hours to a week. The longer you have the gummy bears in the container, the more alcohol is able to be absorbed. We gave ours two days, and (I’m told) they were great!
The bride specifically asked for jello shots, so these were made as well! Plus, non-alcoholic ones for poor slobs like me who couldn’t drink during the party.
I also had a photo booth that featured the poster from the movie as inspiration to pose with!
All in all, I think it was a great night! Everyone looked lovely in their little black dresses and pearls, and I hope that the bride felt like a princess <3
