1920’s Bachelorette Party

Some Fridays ago, my friends and I hosted a 1920’s bachelorette party at my apartment. Yes, 25 women in my small adobe. It was quite the event! There were clicking heels, clanking glasses and lots of stories to be told. Friday during the day, my friend, Ashley, and I went to town! Once we started decorating, we just couldn’t stop ourselves. Sean rolled his eyes and said we were going a little crazy, but we already knew that. We tried to explain that everyone would appreciate our efforts, ending our conversation with the agreement of gender differences and laughing. In the end, we were happy we went a little crazy. Afterall, wasn’t that the point of the night? DSCF8132DSCF8128DSCF8143DSCF8153DSCF8136DSCF8139DSCF8144

Baby Shower// Make Your Own Sandwich

Even though it’s my older sister’s baby shower today, I thought I would post some pictures of my twin sister’s baby shower (are you following all of this– it can be confusing, I know).  We had a lot of ideas of things we wanted to do for food, but in the end we decided to roll with a “make-your-own sandwich buffet”. And it was perfect! Just perfect! Make your own sandwich

Having a make-your-own- sandwich bar was a life savor idea. It made everything so easy for everyone! People weren’t obligated to eat food they didn’t like, which made everyone more apt to hit the food table early and come back for seconds. Also, it made preparation much easier since all we had to do was slice the veggies, meat and bread. Then we added some simple picnic sides and we were set.

And, because I’m naturally a freak about labeling things I had to make these mini-stork tags for all the food!

And now, I’m off to another shower for another sister. Babies come soon! We’re all excited to meet you!
