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.
How perfect are these key lime sorbet ice molds for a summer party!
So much fun! To see more of the accessories and pretty goods that were swapped, pop over to Mindy’s blog!
