A Walk on the Wild Side

I am a party girl. Thats right. No shame over here.

I enjoy planning cute details, designing invitations, and having a good time with good people. This summer one of my best friends got married! I think you know where this is going. I talked with the bride's sister, who was the maid of honor, and we decided to split up the party planning. She was in charge of the bridal shower, and I got to plan the Bachelorette party/Lingerie Shower with another bridesmaid, Sara!

First we picked a theme: A Walk on the Wild side, of course.
Then we designed some awesome invitations with our really high tech photo editing software...also known as Power Point. Thats right. With a simple blank slide and clip art we came up with this:

We printed them on some 4x6 photos at Wal Mart for about 30 cents a pop.

Here is our drink/welcome station:

I just wrapped up some textbooks in Micheal's Damask wrapping paper, and viola: A drink stand is born.

We kept the decorations low-key and inexpensive with some tissue paper poof balls and basic black streamers. We had zebra cakes, cup cakes, and a variety of options for dipping into some yummy white chocolate fondue! Mmmmm. Some old hat boxes propped up the food, adding a little bit of interest to the table.

And what would we do with out a few games? A shake weight showed up for this part.

We called it "Wife Training". Everyone was timed while they completed some typical wifely duties. We had to put on an apron, vacuum up some cheerios, and fold two towels....pumping that shake weight the entire time! Our fastest time was about 20 seconds....but her towel folding did leave a little to be desired. Somethings gotta give, you know?
