Emma’s Bachelorette Party

Emma's bachelorette party!We had so much fun celebrating Emma's bachelorette party! Our pal, Sarah, was kind enough to snap a few photos of the evening with my camera. (Thank you, Sarah!!)

Pink champagne invites!We made pink champagne invites for all of the guests. So much fun! 

11The evening started out with a flight of six cocktails, each with a special toast from a bridesmaid or friend and a story about Emma. The cocktails were all named after memories we have with Emma. Every twenty or thirty minutes one of us would give a toast, and, as you might guess, the toasts got progressively more emotional and more hilarious as the evening went on. It happens.

33We did the special piñata after the first toast. It was super fun and none of the plastic liquor bottles broke… win! Later in the evening, the piñata even made a special appearance dancing with us on the porch. Ha! 

55Next there were mason jar cocktails (Whiskey Ginger and Lavender Gin Fizz!), shrimp tacos and more special toasts! 

777This watermelon and basil cocktail was one of our favorites. I'll share the recipe soon!

14There were giggles and there was an hour (maybe more) of crazy dancing on the back porch. We had the best night, remembered most of what happened the next day, and got to show Emma how much we adore her… which is really what mattered most! 

15It was fun sharing peeks of our party with you. It was a great to celebrate with the bride-to-be! xo. Elsie

  • Not sure if I missed it.. but I really want to know about the edible glitter! It’s so much more glittery than some that I’ve seen. Anyway, what a gorgeous bachelorette party. I’d probably pass out with that much booze, but all the different cocktails sound so good and it’s such a cute idea.

  • Oh wow! That looks like the perfect party. I love the floral lights. They are just gorgeous.

  • I love all the creative handmade elements you bing to your projects but I can’t help noticing a big emphasis on alcohol – it sounds like you girls drink soooo much! Can’t we celebrate in style without getting wasted? xxxxx

  • Ohhh, looks phantastic. I am looking forward to the watermelone cocktail recipe.. Sounds yummi.

  • looks like you had a great time!! 🙂 Lots of fun cocktail ideas too!

  • Minus all the alcohol, seems a little rated G. I know it may not be in your taste, but really, no Magic Mike appearances? 😉

  • Love the set up! Looks like a fun night 🙂 You girls are always so stylish!

  • Such a classy and cute event! I giggled while reading this whole post. Toasts are always better with a little bit of mixys;) My roommates enjoyed our night of “validating the shit out of each other” which turned out pretty similar.
