The event was catered by Design Cuisine; the chefs made upside down salads and an entree fit for a Mad Hatter Tea Party...and the cake. Well, the cake was just divine:
I want to have an Alice in Wonderland themed dinner party now!
On Saturday, Lindsay and I went to Paper-Source to find some materials for our DIY Bachelorette Party invitations, and she found a shiny gold guest book as a bonus! While wandering around, we spotted Paper-Source's flower kit corner, and thought, wouldn't it be cute to put one of those paper flowers on a pen to go with her wedding guest book? We thought so. We bought the magnolia kit, went to my apartment, and proceeded to make a paper flower. How hard could it be?
Did anyone watch Conan's final episode on NBC Friday night? It was really good...but Will Ferrell closing out the final music performance playing the cowbell pretty much made my LIFE. Fingers crossed that Conan pops up on Fox in the next several months...my life won't be the same without some Coco in my daily life. Sad face.
Two of my best gal pals and fellow brides-to-be, Lindsay and Pana, are tripling up with me to have a bachelorette weekend in March; we're inviting all of our bridal parties and a little beyond, and I'm super pumped. We're going out for tapas after a possible spa afternoon, then heading to my apartment to open lingerie & other spunky gifts for the lingerie shower part of the evening. When the bar's dry, we're getting all gussied up for a night on the town...which includes our favorite dance dive bar, The Cavern. I can hardly wait! The morning after we plan on going to brunch - and hopefully 11:30 am is a safe hour to eat - all hangovers should be fading by that time, if we're lucky.
Any ideas for unique garb? I'd love to hear suggestions or things you've done at bachelorette parties that you thought were fun!
By far my favorite two dresses/looks from last night's Golden Globe awards. Did you watch? I loved that Monique won for Precious- her speech was so heartfelt - I was so happy for her; I thought she really deserved to win. I still can't believe that Sandra Bullock really gave a better performance in The Blind Side than Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) - I have to see The Blind Side; it must be good? Chloe's dress ripped, Meryl had a long (sort of bizarre) speech, and Julia Roberts flirted all night with Paul McCartney (who blames her?!) For an entertaining, funny full recap of the night's happenings, click here. It was a pretty good show, and I enjoyed having some friends over to play along with our ballots. Jon Tate went home victorious with the prize for predicting the most winners correctly - a movie theater bucket filled with Crunch Munch, popcorn, Skittles & pretzels! Woohoo!
Seriously...stay sassy, Style Rookie. I love someone with so much passion...it's contagious. To learn more about this fabulous gal, visit her blog...and if you have time, I really recommend reading her 2008 interview with Teen Vogue online - we haven't heard the last from Tavi - of this I'm sure!
Happy Weekend ;) xo
