I was apprehensive about having a bachelorette party, mostly because I was aware of the astronomical costs of some of these things. I think my friends pulled it off with aplomb!
This past weekend was the bridal shower/bachelorette doodad. It was an absolutely perfect party. Who would’ve thought that decorating your own cupcakes could result in such a fit of giggles and girlish glee? It was fun, creative, messy, and the laughs came nonstop.
Lessons I learned about decorating cupcakes:
- Icing is ridiculously hard to work with
- Sprinkles are even more horrid
- Fondant flowers will cover ANY flaw. Made a big mistake? More flowers! Men, this is a great lesson for your relationships.
- No party is complete without a penis cupcake
Of course that was only the beginning. Then there were the manicures from zoomspa, the mobile spa. They come right to your door! And what a great idea, too. If any of you are looking into doing girly things, I do really recommend a mobile spa. What a creative alternative to having to pay out the nose for a full spa treatment! My two most amazing girlfriends put so much effort into planning and cooking and decorating, I think that was what I appreciated the most.
Unfortunately, the most x-rated picture I can post is the penis cupcake because, well, the rest of it will be something that only the ladies in attendance will know about
