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.
- 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.
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.
Any party hosting tips up your sleeve?
