Party Preppin'

I can't believe it's been over a week since my last post! I have a good excuse...my best friend got married! The past few weeks have been a fast-paced mix of bachelorette partying, gathering with friends, and traveling to the OBX for a Halloween wedding. I've been drowning in all the photos I've taken and was really unsure about where to start. So, I decided to take Julie Andrews' advice and "start at the very beginning." Here are some shots of bachelorette party prep!

The bachelorette party was in a rustic cabin in the WV mountains during Bridge Day. We decided to have a Halloween theme and go all out with decor! The weekend before the party I got my craft on and made some goodies to take to the party. This was my "before" pile!

 I used this "lacing technique" from A Beautiful Mess on several of my projects. This was a photo booth kit that I filled with fun things to pose with: mustaches and beards on sticks, silly glasses, bandanas, masks, etc. Somehow I forgot to take a photo of the inside, but you can see the props in action:


I also used the lacing technique on this card. All the gals signed special congratulations messages at the party and we gave it to the bride-to-be on the morning of her wedding.

What's a Halloween party without pumpkins? These last two were my faves. I used scotch tape and spray paint to make the silver one, lace for the black pattern, and paint and star shaped push pins for the last pumpkin in the top pic. The bride-to-be saved all the painted pumpkins we brought and used them at the wedding!

 I even decorated this tube of glow necklaces. Trader Joe's gave me the stickers and they were so cute I just HAD to use them somewhere! Next up, a few pics from Bridge Day and the Halloween wedding extravaganza!
