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!

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.

It is no secret that I enjoy my cocktails. What better way to savor some tasty beverages than with a group of your closest friends? Atlanta has so many fabulous options as far as places to get a great drink but what better idea than to bring the booze and party to you? Hosting an event such as a wine tasting is a great way to to get all of your girls together fora night of drinking, bonding, and fun. I think this would make for a spectacular bridesmaids get together or just a mellow night with the girls. Places like The Atlanta Wine School offer private one on one sessions where they will come to your home and teach you all about Wine. Or you could always choose the Wine yourself and host a fabulous dinner party with pairings. ph Wine Market is centrally located in Buckhead. Though they are kind of hidden back in Peachtree Hills once you find them you will be so glad that you did. They offer hard to find selections as well as well known wines and are more than happy to assist you and finding the perfect vino for your event. They offer wine classes as well as free tastings on Saturdays so you can browse, shop, and savor to find exactly what you are looking for. The always wonderful Treehouse restaurant is located next door which I visit quite frequently. It is a great dinner spot which makes for a great outing. Wine first followed by cocktails and dinner next door. Treehouse has a great, mellow vibe which makes for a perfect evening out with the ladies, or for a perfect brunch the morning after. If you are interested in a more upscale outing then check out Southern Art and Bourbon Bar located on Peachtree street. Southern Art offer fabulous Southern Fare as well as cocktails to die for. This is a great spot for getting dressed up for a dinner out on the town with the girls.
