Bachelorette party ideas: fashion swap

modern fashion swap party invites

Last month we shared Amanda’s pink pillow fight/burlesque bachelorette party, which is most def a fun way to celebrate with your ladies, and today we’re sharing another fun alternative. Mindy Kaisner’s idea: think shopping & appetizers in the comfort of your living room, with the twist of creating your own boutique for girls to bring accessories, purses, shoes, jewelry, belts, and scarves they’re no longer using to swap. Check it out and we promise you’re going to want to have one of these yourself.

This layered garland across the white mirror was created to reflect the current trend in layered accessories. By selecting four different strands and twisting them together, I created a new take on the ever popular party garland. Framed fashion sayings placed around the party also bump up the fashion theme a notch while adding originality to the decor.

As your guests arrive on party night, take the items and display them in creative ways throughout your living room. Display jewelry on vases and platters to show them off and clear off bookshelves and turn them into a shoe display. Have fun with it and think outside the box. Then, turn the girls loose!

We’ve been seeing a lot of these eco-friendly utensils floating around on Pinterest and love the idea of giving them a personal touch to fit your theme. A little paint or colored washi tape will do the trick. And why stop there? Love how Mindy hand painted the bamboo plates too!

For an added element to your party, consider having a make-up artist and hair stylist on hand. They can give you tips & ideas for freshening up your look. If you’re in the planning stages of your wedding, it’s a fun way to try out new styles for you and your bridesmaids.

Fun idea! I love the fact that this bachelorette party is as girly as can be.

Modern Mindy on Aug 30, 2012

Thanks so much for the feature! We had such a great time planning all the details for a fun girls night in!

I've actually been seriously considering a fashion swap night for some time now, so this is great inspiration and much prettier than what I had in mind!

Is there a place where we can download or buy the printables from this party (signs, invites, etc?)

Allie Shultz on Aug 30, 2012

Looks like a ton of fun! The colors alone make it look exciting and the activities planned would make for a great night with friends.

My friends and I actually purchased our wedding cake stands from a woman who makes beautiful cake stands with removable cake skirts. Seems that most bakers only provide those boring looking plain cake rounds to display your cake...why spend so much money on a gorgeous cake to just put it on a dull piece of cardboard? You can buy the stand kit I think it's called and it comes with a stand, a cake skirt and matching flower and ribbon for only $65!!! She has a good selection of fabric skirts and crystal ones too. The best thing about this cake stand is you can change the skirt over and over to match every event! This is the stand I purchased. Check her out on cakedress.com! cakedress.com

Some fantastic ideas for parties in general. The ice key lime sorbets look amazing

Nancy Sorenson on Jun 18, 2013

I enjoyed the idea of your party but would like to see the invites closer and the rules you had printed, is there a place you have this to view. thanks, Nancy

You could certainly see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren't afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

Livia@lovertoyland.com on Jul 18, 2013

Those key lime sorbets ice molds are perfect. I enjoyed your ideas.
