Today I wanted to take you behind the scenes of a little Day of the Dead & Mexican fiesta inspired bachelorettes party & celebration I set up for a friend of mine. From the Pinterest mood board I used for inspiration, how I translated this into real life décor & a few pics from the day.
It’s not very often that I get to plan a party for a bride (where I’m her bridesmaid not her planner) and I get to put my drinking shoes on (because I’m a professional & don’t drink while working – & no two glasses of wine doesn’t count as drinking while working)
I also want to do something new…I want to do a follow up DIY post BUT I want YOU to choose which decor item I do the How to post on .
So if you are planning a kitchen tea or bachelorettes party & you need some none plastic penis straw & fluffy ear inspiration this part is especially for you! (side note – you can totally adapt these decor items to a kids or adults birthday party, so no excuses to sit on the side lines here…this can be useful to you too)
Leave a comment with your choice of what you want a a ‘how to’ blog post on or free template for. Or pop over to our Facebook page in the next week & leave your request there… Your options are:
- A: The hanging streamer loops come table runners
- B: The Skull shaped adult piñata
- C: The 5min flower crown
- D: Glitter cactus garden
- E: A free thank you packet stencil or printout
Can’t wait to see what I can help with & what you think of this little fiesta!
And here is the full Pinterest board – https://za.pinterest.com/runawayromance/day-of-the-red-bachelorettes-party/ (I’ll add the DIY “how to’s” here as soon as you have told me which one to do – Yay!)
Although the decor was all my own DIY, the wonderful guests bought the snacks & Bev created the incredible succulent garden cupcakes & cactus cookies. If you want her help on any baking or catering goodness you can get hold of her on firstname.lastname@example.org or 082 8242515
