Bachelorette Party

My cousins threw a bachelorette party for their sister who is getting married in September. I helped out with the party decor. I took my inspiration from the bride's favorite color: raspberry. The party was at a beachfront cottage so I kept the decorations colorful, fresh and festive. 

I created a custom canvas to set the party mood. I used my Silhouette SD to cut the letters out of vinyl and apply them to a canvas I painted with a custom blend of colors to get the right shade of shimmery, rich pinky-purple. I love how this turned out!

The party favors were Hershey nuggets embellished with Papertrey Ink Limitless Labels, bundled up in sets of four in little treat bags and tied with a raspberry satin ribbon.

My favorite party item? These hot pink insulated tumblers personalized with vinyl and pink bling. The bride's tumbler was clear with rhinestone bling.  Perfect for keeping track of your cocktail throughout the night. The font is Sweetheart Script.  

No party is complete without cocktails. We had Sweetheart sangria and a non-alcoholic option of Passion Tea Lemonade.

Lemon Blackberry cupcakes were served for dessert. The custom cupcake toppers continued the raspberry color scheme even further. 

A party banner behind the bar completed the decorations. 

I'll leave you with some photos from the party. A great reason to get together and celebrate in the summer.

Supplies Used:
stamps: Papertrey Ink Limitless Labels, Round and Round
cardstock: Bazzill Basics
patterned paper: Bo Bunny Sophie Collection
dies: Nestabilities
punch: Stampin' Up
