Crafting... My Best Friend's Bachelorette Party

What makes for a perfect, low-key Bachelorette Party?  Line Dancing and Disneyland!  

I just got home from a super fun weekend celebrating Jenny's Bachelorette Party.  Her last weekend as a "Miss"!  I can't believe she is less than a week away from the most magical day of her life.  I'm so looking forward to seeing her and her husband (!!) walk back down that aisle together.

Let's cut to the pictures!  Jenny wanted a weekend full of all the things she loves with her Loves, so we partied Friday night at The Ranch in Anaheim, and spent Saturday at the Disneyland Resort!

DAY 1 - March 28, 2014
The Ranch is always a good idea.  This establishment is an upscale line dancing bar just down the street from Disneyland.  I've never had a bad time here and most of the dances are easy enough to jump on the floor and pick up.

Our group wore cowboy hats, sheriff badges and bandanas to get in the spirit; and we wore black, while the bride wore white!









DAY 2 - March 29, 2014
To prepare for our Disney Day, I took to a very functional favor idea - snack bags and lanyards!  These were super easy to make, cost effective, personalized and ADORABLE!

We parkhopped throughout the day and made dinner reservations online for Wine Country Trattoria in California Adventure.  We capped the night off watching Fantasmic! and riding Haunted Mansion and Pirates.  It was a fun-filled day of magic, good food and girl time!!

Water Bottles (Ralphs) - remove the label and replace with Mickey Mouse duct tape (Home Depot)
Personalized with Names (Me!)

In lieu of shirts, we wanted to match in some other way, so when I found these lanyards at Party City, I knew I could do something creative and fun!

I've seen a lot of Pinners make these for their kid's, and hey, we're big kids!
An entire day at Disneyland can take a lot out of someone, so these refueling favor bags were just the ticket.  I bought a pack of 50 brown bags at the grocery store, mimicked the Disney font with Sharpie and gel pens, and hole-punched and tied them with a cute Disney ribbon.

I filled them with Goldfish, Chewy Bars, Strawberry Fruit Leather, Gum and pocket anti-bacterial (all from Targ├ęt)

The water bottles are regular Arrowhead bottles with the labels replaced with Mickey duct tape (Home Depot).









Hugggggs!
