Last weekend was Ashley's much anticipated bachlorette party!
I decided that I wanted to be sure to make some things for her myself, since I wanted it to be special. So, toward the beginning of the summer, I found an awesome idea for a photo tray at I DO Invitations by Michelle. (I am having a terrible time finding the exact picture, but I will update when I find it. She does some amazing stuff, so a little time browsing her blog will not be time wasted. :) )
So, I decided to whip up a tray for Ashley as a momento of the girls that were at the first phase of the party.
It was SUPER simple! I just picked up the tray at Target, printed out some photos, cut them down, and Mod Podge-d them on.
I also decided to make the invitations myself, which I think was my favorite project of all the ones I have on here today.
I also decided to customize one of those adorable Bride/Bachelorette glasses that you can buy at party stores.
I forgot to take a picture after it dried...so this one is close. I just used scrapbooking stickers to spell out "Bride" on the base and covered it with a coat of Mod Podge to keep them from peeling off. For the "veil," I just used a piece of tulle, tied a ribbon around it, and glued the ribbon to the glass. Again, super easy!
Aside from the DIY goodies for the bride, a large portion of the party was DIY, as we went to a paint-your-own-pottery place.
We reserved the party room, so we could be together as a group without disturbing others...haha. We got to bring food and drinks, and it was a great time! Ashley painted a glass to use at her wedding, and I made a soap dispenser for my kitchen. Mine didn't quite go according to plan, so I'm looking forward to seeing the final product(s) when I pick them up this weekend.
Overall, we had a great time painting the town...and the pottery!
