First of all, I take minor credit here as my accomplice (aka: Bridesmaid #2) hosted and gathered the decor but I was on booze & bride patrol so I mean I helped!
After about 3 months of trying to talk my sister into a little bachelorette party we finally succeeded. She has never been one for enjoying the center of attention and definitely was not interested in the bar scene. I knew that missing a little experience like this where we had a "final girls night in" would possibly be regrettable and that we could easily pull off a nice little party with much more class and the same fun! So...Bridesmaid #2 and I came up with a small backyard BBQ with a rustic theme, and coerced the bride into enjoying a small quiet evening.
First up the Decor!
|In the buckets were citronella candles which were lit later on and were wonderful ambiance|
|I decorated her so I feel like this belongs in decor. Classy, not trashy...ok the 1980's called and wants that veil back|
Next up FOOD:
To preface this we decided to do a couple things with the food. First Bridesmaid #2 rocked the smoker and we had amazing BBQ brisket sandwiches. Second, we asked that each guest bring their favorite side to share along with a printed recipe for the bride to be to add to her recipes. My sister did not really want gifts so this was a perfect way for everyone to give and share at the same time.
|Chocolate covered strawberries were a HUGE hit!|
|So much AHHHmazing food|
|Simple recipe: 1/2 Liter of Sprite, 2 cans of frozen lemonade, 4 bottles of Moscato and ice|
|For the toast we did Fizzy Popsicles: Champagne with Popsicles! So delicious|
|Yes my marshmallow is on fire...obviously the bridesmaid booze was a hit|
So what do you think? Have you ever hosted a Bachelorette Bash?
