Pink Bachelorette Dinner

In May several years back I hosted a bachelorette sleepover at my house for a friend. It was a lot of fun and I had a great time setting the table for our dinner.

I decided to go with a pink theme and put out my white china with a white tablecloth and pink napkins. For placecards I made up tent cards on the computer that had all the ladies' names in white script against a pink background.  Right before everyone arrived I clipped some dogwood blossoms from my tree to decorate the placecards.  I made a little slit in the upper right corner and then just tucked the stem in. The blossoms held up surprisingly well and luckily didn't wilt until the next day.  

I also made a pink and white candy buffet for us to snack on over the evening. I put the various candies, like Good & Plenty, white malted milk balls, chocolate truffles dusted in pink, in ice cream sundae glasses along my buffet. I was a little desperate to find pink and white candies so I resorted to buying a large bag of Ice Cream Treat Skittles and sorting out the strawberry flavor (pink) and vanilla flavor (cream). It was a bit tedious, but it looked really cute.

As I was in Target shopping for the pink and white candies I couldn't resist stopping by the Target One Spot where I spotted some cute pink bookmarks. They were sold in two packs for a dollar so I grabbed a bunch. They had a photo opening at the top and I printed out hot pink script monongram initials for each lady and slipped them in the photo opening.  I thought they made an easy and inexpensive little favor.

Anything & everything pink is perfect! I can hardly wait for Target to open their store in Guelph, ON - I want those book marks :-) The whole table looks so inviting. What a kind friend you are hosting such a lovely party. Your second or third or fourth career could be in party settings.

Mary-Lou- Thank you so much! The party was a while back so the bookmarks aren't at Target anymore. Be careful about the Target One Spot when your Target opens! It is a little section right when you walk into Target that has all sorts of cute things for a dollar. I always seem to need to buy a few things from the One Spot every time I go. It's got some sort of magic power over me!

I think you are a crafting and sewing and woodworking guru.
I am trying to figure out if there is something you can't do?
You are very talented!!

Kathy- Thank you so much! That is very sweet of you to say. There are lots of things that I am not good it. Much to my embarrassment, chief among those things is keeping my house tidy. I can be quite a mess!
