A BACHELORETTE SHOWER!

I threw a friend a bridal/bachelorette shower last week, we had a blast! Let me warn you it was a bit of a bachelorette shower so there may be a few risque pics....don't worry i edited out the worst ones.

Since I have zero time on my hands I kept the decorations and food simple. I made this garland out of newspaper and scraps of paper i already had. SO EASY! INSTRUCTIONS: Cut the newspaper to what size you want and fold it like a paper fan, glue or staple it in a circle. To make the circles I traced around bowls of different sizes on scrap paper that I had and glued them on top of each other and then on top of the newspaper circles. I headed to my moms to cut out the letters (derek *heart* ashley) and glued those on. Then I glued them all on a ribbon I had as well. I used hot glue it holds well and dried easily. The finished product:



Cut triangles out of leftover wedding invitations and glued them on a ribbon:

Yummy treats...

Yummy cupcakes with brownie hearts...
