Some of you may or may not know that I was in charge of planning the most kick ass bachelorette party for a dear friend a few weekends ago in Austin, Texas.
AND some of you may or may not know that I STRESSED over this. I mean, like hard core, stressin'! Like that stressing you do when you have to take a final in college. OR the stressing you do when you are trying to pull together the right outfit for a first date (at least I did!) OR that stressing you do when you pee on a stick in hopes that you see two lines. Yes, that kind of stress! That was me all rolled into one big bundle of nervous energy and it was not pretty.
I wanted the bachelorette party night to be perfect for her and I wanted it to be memorable. My bachelorette party was awesome and one weekend I will never forget. I wanted the same for my friend. She deserved it! She has been through some really tough times in life and this was the least I could do for her. No pressure, right?!? Right!
While I loved the whole details process of this planing, the rest I could have done without. I lost too much sleep over this! My skin started to look like that of a 13 year old going through puberty. Not a good look! I got very sick and had to postpone my flight a day thanks to a flu bug. I dreamt of a failed bachelorette party where 2 people backed out at the last minute. Oh wait....that really happened!
***Common courtesy ladies, don't flake out unless it is a dire emergency! And if you do flake maybe offer to chip in and pay for some part of the day. After all you were factored into the cost! Am I wrong in asking for this? (One girl did offer to help pay for the spa which was a nice gesture.)***
In a perfect world the day went off without a hitch, everyone had fun, and no one complained but we all know good and well a perfect life does not exist. Especially when you are dealing with girls and their various personalities! I spent too much time driving around Austin looking for a blow up penis and glow in the dark straws all because ONE girl insisted we have this because "it isn't a bachelorette party with out a penis!" Really???? That's funny because last time I checked no one really liked wearing a giant penis hat on their head while. Nothing screams bachelorette party like a giant penis. The "bride to be" sash and black boa were enough for the bride. Add a penis to the head and we have a not so thrilled bride to be!
Despite all of the complaining I am doing here, I did have a lot of fun. I was determined to make the most of the day, regardless of all the glitches along the way. I had lots of champagne and that numbed the pain of looking at a penis on my best friends head!
The highlight of my party planning was picking party treats for each girl!
I love Ellia C Naturals products and I was so excited to team up with Jennifer for the party favors! Jennifer is so sweet and so talented and I was happy to work with her.
I decided on a Soap Pop and 2 Tub Tea Party Favors for each girl. You all have no idea how super fabulous these treats are! They smell so good and leave your skin feeling so soft. I love my soap pop! Not only is it super cute but the smell lingers in your bathroom and smells like a spa!
These were a hit with the girls and were the perfect gift since we had gone to the spa earlier that day.
