Like I said on Wednesday, I am a details person. I think about everything from paper products to flowers to how decor in a venue will impact the party. Details can make or break your party, y'all!
One of the things I really wanted to do for a recent bachelorette weekend was create the perfect bachelorette weekend welcome bag. I wanted the bags to be useful, pretty, fun, and a little playful. I also wanted everything to match the vibe of the weekend. Luckily, Melissa Strother of M.B. Strother Designs really helped us set the tone for the weekend with a beautifully designed invitation and itinerary. These invitations were stunning, and I couldn't have asked for a better paper suite for the party!
I then used the lingerie shower invitations as a guide for decor for the rest of the weekend. Here's how you can achieve the same look!
Decide on a Theme
Since our party was taking place in the mountains, we really stuck to a woodsy theme with smatterings of antlers here and there. Kate Aspen is my favorite resource for party favors and decor. I was able to give every girl an antler bottle opener and an antler wine stopper. I also placed some of Kate Aspen's antler votive candles on the mantle to tie it all together.
Think Outside of the Box
Using the paper suite as a guide, I reached out to Two Crazy Cookies to design a custom antler sugar cookie (which she has since added to her shop!) for the trip. These turned out beautifully and were just as delicious as they were lovely! Adding a cookie to the welcome bag was a sweet treat for each attendee. Consider cookies, candies, or some other fun food item to put in the bag.
Don't Forget the Necessities
Using Kate Aspen's striped favor bags and a little washi tape, I provided each girl with 6 ibuprofens for the weekend (2 per night!). Even though no one every got too crazy, having a few hangover cures available was a thoughtful welcome bag addition.
Add a Label
To finish each bag, I added a label using the same logo from the itineraries. This was a last minute addition for me or I would have had them professionally printed by M.B. Strother Designs, but my home printer was a good second choice. Again, the labels tied the details from the weekend together; it's the little details, y'all.
Thanks to Kate Aspen for providing the bottle stoppers, bottle openers candles, and striped bags to make our trip extra special!
