With the holidays having arrived there is nothing more I enjoy than having cocktails with close friends and family. With that being said what better way to celebrate with your girls than some fun, fabulous, boozy gifts and decor to spice up your bachelorette party or shower? Here are a few saucy, unique ideas to inspire for your next event!
I LOVE the idea of having a piñata filled with minis! What a fun way to begin or end the evening! The possibilities with this are endless.
Cute boxes like these can be used for a myriad as gifts. Would be great for an entire bridal party and relatively easy and cheap to make.
Sparkly DIY glasses filled with goodies for your girls for a night out on the town.
Some easy, fun decor to spice up a table and make it extra fun. It’s all in the details!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful followers!

As much as I would like to blog about bachelorette parties for a living.. a girl’s gotta support herself. RD Music & Marketing is my full-time job, and we are in the running to qualify for a $250k grant from Chase Mission Mainstreet for small businesses. It would mean so much to me if my readers could take 1 minute out of your time and please vote for us. All you have to do is be logged in through Facebook to vote. This would give our business such a huge opportunity for growth if we end up meeting the goal for votes. The grant will also help us bring family friendly events to more communities all across the U.S. All my readers are so wonderful and we would truly appreciate your support. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us out!
I absolutely love unique bachelorette party and shower ideas. Everyone enjoys a night out on the town with the girls, but it is always fun to mix it up a little bit. When I came across the idea of a golf themed shower I absolutely had to share with my readers. Most I have seen are themed parties (which are absolutely adorable.) However, I think it would be super fun to take it a step forward and bring your best girls out for some time on the course. Now for those of you who are not savvy on the links- a driving range would be a great way to enjoy the golfing experience without sitting through 18 holes. Even mini golf could be a fun alternative (with minis in tote of course.) So why not get the ladies together, throw a few back, and shag some balls? For those of you in Atlanta Legacy & Fox Creek are located right outside the perimeter and offer instruction for groups and singles in addition to their driving ranges. Without further delay..here are some fun inspirations I have come across. Enjoy!

My sweet boyfriend and I are die-hard Alabama fans. Since he is such a doll he ordered me one of these awesome spirit jerseys as a gift for football season.

As it turns out the Southern Shirt Co actually makes a bridal collection which are super cute, and perfect for a bachelorette outing or even for the wedding day! These are a fun change-up instead of the monogrammed button ups. No, I would not recommend these if your girls are in the process of having their hair done, but for a group outing or fun picture session they would be adorable. They run $45 from SSC, however I believe they offer bulk ordering for large groups. You can also customize them accordingly. Just FYI they run a little big! Check out a few cute options below and be sure to check out their site.
To my wonderful, dedicated followers,
Recently I was notified that my blog (which has not been updated in close to a year) has been receiving an incredible amount of traffic. This came as a shock considering the lack of updates. However, I find myself inspired and feel a triumphant return to the resource with new posts for all my beautiful bachelorettes is in order. Though I am an Atlanta-based gal; I plan on posting more about all the ins and outs of bachelorette parties as well as fresh ideas for my followers from all over. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions, questions, or comments about anything related to the website, event planning, or general bachelorette shenanigans. I look forward to updating and hope to help make all of your bachelorette planning endeavors come true. Party on, ladies. Party on.

Good evening to all my fellow bachelorettes out there! I have been lax with my posts during these past couple months and will be making new, fabulous updates soon. Fresh, exciting ideas for everything from bachelorette parties to showers to being a perfect hostess will be arriving shortly. Stay tuned…
and of course…
Let’s be honest, ladies.. Who doesn’t LOVE Brunch? Not only can you be super crafty when creating a menu, but it is also a completely acceptable reason to start cocktailing at 11:00 a.m. Hosting a brunch is also a perfect excuse to dress fabulously with all your girls and try out all of those recipes you have been collecting on Pinterest. So whether you are hosting a shower, or a post bachelorette party gathering – here are some lovely inspirations to help you ease into hosting a brilliant, blissful brunch.
A Bloody Mary or Mimosa Bar is a fun way for everyone to have the option to make their concoction. You also have the power to be as creative with it as you want.
For those who are non-drinkers or do not prefer to start drinking before 1 in the afternoon – this infused water bar makes for a delicious and refreshing option. You could also do lemonade or an array of iced teas if preferred.
Quiche, Biscuits, and a delightful assortment of seasonal fruits are just a few suggestions for hosting the perfect mid afternoon gathering. A biscuit bar loaded with honey and jam is an easy go to when hours of early preparation is not your idea of a good time. Many biscuit recipes can be made in advance and baked off before you need them hot and fresh. If you like what you see in the first picture then you absolutely have to check out this easy brunch menu compliments of Southern Living. For other great shower inspirations check out Hostess with the Mostess.
Veggies are always a big hit and an easy go to. To make it more fun and festive try using vases for the veggies and martini glasses for the dip instead of a boring old platter. This is so simple to create and definitely easy on the eyes.
Finger foods and small bites are such a wonderful idea when you know you are going to be up socializing with your closest gals. These tiny bites are definitely cute but can be time-consuming to assemble. If you have a larger group coming you may want to consider hiring a caterer. However if you are the Martha Stewart type then this should be an easy feat. Just be prepared for an early morning.
Just remember that presentation is key. Go that extra mile to do fresh flower arrangements or splurge for real cocktail glasses instead of pink Dixie cups. You may have the best tasting food in the world, but everyone will remember the tiny elements and attention to detail you put into your soiree. By the end of brunch all the ladies will be singing your praises.

These days it is so easy to inform your friends about any event under the sun by sending an invitation electronically, but let’s be honest; who doesn’t LOVE getting a fabulous invitation in the mail? Wedding season brings mailboxes full of invitations for the big day, shower invites, and save-the-dates. Not that sending bachelorette party invitations will ever go out of style, but recently more than ever I have noticed an increase in cute, creative, fun invitations. A great invite is the first step in setting the tone for a great girl’s weekend so why not make it unforgettable starting with the invitations? With all the wonder design programs it is as easy as pie to create your own and save a little money. However, if you want to go over the top you can always get a little fancy with it and have them printed, or buy your own special stationary and print them yourselves. The possibilities are endless. Here are some of my favorite samples I have recently seen.
Pink & Gold makes for a stunning, girly invite.
Aqua invites set the tone for a fun, wild bachelorette.
Classy and Playful.
I love this toned down, sweet invitation. Invites are a great way to show the style of the upcoming shindig.
These are so great for a combination bachelorette/lingerie night.
Slim invitations with a vintage feel.
Stunning bridal shower invite which would work for a bachelorette as well. Love this color combo!
