New Year, New Celebrations!

As January slowly fades away and we enter into February, March and the beautiful spring time along comes fun new events to celebrate!  One that I am sure everyone is feeling is…. the wedding fever!

Whether your co-worker, best friend or sister is starting her wedding celebrations be ready to plan something special with this simple yet gorgeous idea for a bridal shower or bachelorette party!

I was lucky enough to be in my best friend’s wedding last september and being a bridesmaid means you also get the privilege of helping set up the fun events leading up to the big day.

This is what I did to decorate and plan her bachelorette party, a beautiful and fun-filled weekend in Sonoma County.

It was filled with best friends, lots of wine and fantastic decorations to help her shine!

First of all, we rented a gorgeous home for all of us girls to share so my back drop and canvas was perfect!  Next all I had to do was come up with a theme, color scheme and then start shopping!

My go to tends to be feminine, modern and romantic so I went with gold and pink…with lots of sparkle!

These are just a few ideas of the color palette you could use to incorporate different and contrasting hues into the decorations.

Next I made a list of items I would need and went shopping!  I would say hands down the best place to find decor, accessories and all things bridal is Etsy.  Check out a few of my faves below:

For unique garland and wall decor I used Poms Mania and southernscrappn

for fun table decor I used gold and pink heart confetti from signsationalsayings


I also did some of my own DIY with Mason Jars for the flower arrangements!  I took mason jars, gold spray paint paint and went to town! My best friend actually ended up keeping them and using them at the wedding!

The best spray paint for this kind of task is Krylon Glitter spray 

The final touch was all of the fun bachelorette accessories for both the bride and bridesmaids!

And since it was a wine tasting weekend a fabulous veil for her wine glass from Pipbowtique  il_570xN.574713336_7600

There were so many more details that I found on Etsy and Pinterest that made the weekend a huge success!

Here is an overall shot of how the table was set up for her big weekend!


With an idea of the brides personality, your own creative vibe and some fun decorations you are sure to throw an amazing bridal bash!
