With two upcoming bachelorette parties to plan and attending a few bridal showers, I wanted to share a fun game you can easily bring to your next party!
21 Questions is a great game to help guests get to know the couple better, or to test the Bride and Groom themselves. You can either have the groom answer the questions ahead of time, or the guests can try to take a guess at the answers!
These fun questions are a good way to get the party started! You can also find matching cups in the store here!

I don't know about you, but I've already been invited on two bachelorette parties so far this year.
Here's some helpful tips for getting everything organized in the upcoming months before you attend a bachelorette!

Make sure you find a fun destination that fits the bride's dreams! Is she a beach person or a city person? Looking to escape and relax or party the night away?
Make sure all of the Bride's best friends can come!

No party is complete without a little bit of champagne or prosecco! If you can bring your own, you can save some money.
One of the biggest tasks a Maid/Matron of Honor and fellow bridesmaids have is planning the bride-to-be's bachelorette party! With more and more hen nights turning into weekend getaways, finding a time everyone can get together for a weekend of celebrations is hard.
The best place to start when hosting a bachelorette party is asking the Bride if she is looking for one night of shenanigans or if she is looking to get out of town. If she is hoping for a weekend getaway, and it seems plausible that most attendees could make this work, its best to narrow down the list of options before asking the whole group. There is nothing scarier than a group email of 10-15 ladies asking the open ended questions of when are where! AH!
Hopefully a small group of people can narrow down the location and come up with a few options of times! It's always nice to offer an option of a holiday weekend as well as a couple weekends throughout the season before the wedding.
Two great tools to help get everyone's input are doodle and facebook polls!
Doodle is a free scheduler that allows you to send a link (or email directly through doodle) to invitees asking for their input of time or location if you are voting on that as well! This is a great option for groups without everyone being on social media.
Creating a Facebook group for bachelorette invitees is also a great way to communicate plans as a group. This is a great option if everyone attending is active on Facebook. In the group you can post messages for everyone to reply to as well as create polls!
I have never had a White Russian before this past weekend, but I am now HOOKED! It is such a simple cocktail to make and it tastes just like a mocha frappichino from Starbucks.
What you need:
1 part Kahlua
2 parts Vodka
1 part Milk (or heavy cream if you're feeling festive!)
Fill a glass with ice
Add vodka and Kahlua
Top with Milk
When hosting an event such as a brunch or bridal shower, there's one think yu are going to need a lot of....Prosecco!
I don't know if there are enough good things I could say about Costco! Costco Prosecco is just another reason I renew my membership every year.
At $6.99 a bottle, this DOCG Prosecco is a steal. The DOCG designation means this is certified by the Italian government to be made of the grapes stated. The only other bubbly I can think of for less is Andre or Cooks, and I like to think I am past that stage in my life. This beautiful purple labeled bottle has made its way into my house, and I am never looking back!
When hosting an event requiring something that bubbles, I would highly reccoemend picking up a few (lot) bottles of Costco's Kirkland Prosecco.
I had the honor of helping one of my best friends propose to his boyfriend (one of my other best friends) recently! I snuck into their house the day of the engagement to decorate as a surprise to the happy couple when they returned from their mountain hike engagement.
I wanted to go with a romantic look for the evening and decided on white flowers with candles as the main color scheme for the evening. With the sun setting earlier now, I knew the candles would create the romantic atmosphere I was looking for. I used tea lights so they would be low and could be placed in between the flowers.
There was a small group of friends there for the return surprise, so I created a charcuterie spread and had chilled champagne ready to toast the happy couple! I went with two bottles Veuve Clicquot to make sure there was enough for two rounds of cheersing.
A great place to find candles is IKEA. They offer a wide variety of colors at very reasonable prices. They also have a lot of glassware that is very affordable to put tea lights in. Another great find at IKEA was using their basic drinkware for the flowers. The glasses come in sets of 6 for less than $5 each. For flowers, I got a majority of them at Costco and the rest from Trader Joe’s.
The setup took about 3-4 hours with the help of other family members of the engaged couple. I wanted to be done a little early so there was plenty of time to shower and change, get the charcuterie board prepared, set up the camera to video the happy couple’s face when the walked in the door, and light all of the candles!
It was such a wonderful evening getting to celebrate the love between two amazing people!
