Party Planning: Bachelorette Brunch

Last weekend I got the pleasure of hosting a bachelorette brunch for my sweet friend Caitlin. As her Matron of Honor I wanted to host an event that would be memorable and special for Caitlin. I knew she loved brunch and would want to keep things very classy for her bachelorette. A Saturday morning bachelorette brunch was the perfect solution! I mean seriously, who doesn't love an excuse to have breakfast twice in one day? Here's a little peek at our Saturday morning fun...

I wrapped silverware in white napkins and tied them with ribbons to dress things up a bit more and add a girly touch.

Yummy bridal brunch eats included:
- smoothies in wine glasses.
- party platter with whole grain crackers (thank you Target for Archer Farms...just $2.19 for a box of yummy whole grain crackers), cheese, hummus, and grapes.
- pumpkin loaf with cream cheese courtesy of fellow bridesmaid Goldie who used this Pinterest recipe, only she made it healthier by substituting applesauce for butter. 
- whole grain muffins with nut topping courtesy of another fellow bridesmaid, Brittany.

Something blue.

I got Caitlin back for the fantastically funny gag gifts she gave me at my bachlorette. This was a part of her honeymoon necessities bag I gave her including Redi-Whip. Laughter quickly ensued and the beautiful bride took it all in stride. What a trooper! 

Marriage inspiration vase. A simple vase from Target decorated with scrapbooking pearls and jewels. I asked each of the girls to fill it with a few quotes, scriptures, or wishes for the bride and groom. Caitlin can keep it in their new home and pull one out to read whenever she needs encouragement. 

I felt incredibly blessed to spend such a special time with these high quality ladies. This party reminded me how important it is to surround yourself with good friends, a priceless asset in life. 

Congratulations, Caitlin! 

Any party hosting tips up your sleeve?

I have been reading your blog for a while and love it! The brunch pictures are beautiful! It's so funny because I went to high school with Caitlin and my sister graduated with her so I couldn't believe it when I saw her on here! It's such a small world!

I love this post and photos! Looks like you had a sweet time with great friends. The best! I love the chalk board with the message.

Thanks, Aileen. The chalkboard is actually a main-stay in our kitchen and I thought it would be perfect to decorate with a bridal party message.
