Hey interwebs! It’s me, CT, back from a work-induced blogging hiatus. We’re in full on wedding mode here at Living Analog getting ready for my little sis to say “I Do” on June 1st. Last weekend was the bachelorette party hosted by yours truly. Who wants to see some day late and dollar short ideas for a Cinco de Mayo party? Here we go.
I already showed you guys the invite the other day — this is the starting point for everything . . . . manicures . . .
margaritas . . . .
(Purple margarita recipe here — we added some Sprite because it was really strong and subbed out the Chambord for some Blackberry brandy.)
. . . and movies!
I got happy with some colored tissue paper and made a simple garland to hang around the living room and give it that festive fiesta appeal . . .
It was simple to make — cut your sheets to the same size rectangles, add fringe and stitch together on the sewing machine.
For food we did a quick and easy nacho bar and set that all up in the kitchen:
(Dessert was cinnamon twists from Taco Bell (so classy!) and some really good Mexican Hot Chocolate brownies that only I ate . . . they might have been on the spicy side. Recipe here)
After our manicures and some test your knowledge quizzes on the bride-to-be and the movie, we settled in and watched “10 Things I Hate About You” (and then “27 Dresses” to get into the wedding mood).
It wasn’t your typical bachelorette party with penis straws or strippers or scavenger hunts through bars but I thought it was more personalized to my sister, the bride. And isn’t that really what it’s all about? Many Cheers – CT
Awesome ideas! Can you please ship me a brownie and margarita? thnx 😉
Signed, sealed, delivered. 🙂
It was lovely! You are a great hostess and think of everything.
Very cute ideas… Was the blurry picture the result of the beverages.
Yes! A little bit and also my family not necessarily wanting to be famous on the internet!! Cheers- CT
