Just Married

In my 30 before 30 list I had mentioned that I would like to decorate my wedding reception someday. Unfortunately, due to a series of mishaps we had to postpone the kind of reception we originally planned. That did not stop us from having a small celebration at home though.

Being introverts, my husband and I are not very good at throwing a party, so we tried making the house look livelier by decorating it with something to talk about, like photos on the wall!

Each photo has a story to tell, like the first bouquet he gave me, his “I’m sorry” flowers, our first pet, his favourite photo of us, my bachelorette party, etc.

The wall opposite the TV has nothing interesting on it, so we decorated it with hearts and Mr. & Mrs. cutouts.

And of course, what is a wedding without the “Just Married” banner?

What about the favours? We had less than a week to plan the party, which is why we settled for a consumable wedding favour, like cupcakes. We thought of macaroons first, but I did not have enough time to create small boxes, neither were they easily available.

We got the cupcakes from Cinnabon and the boxes from another store, whilst the cupcake toppers and the “Thank you!” tags are all DIYs.

After the party we also gave our three witnesses different gifts according to their personality and a framed photo of the three of them together.

Hopefully, after a year or two there will be an updated wedding celebration that I have decorated the way I’ve dreamed it would be. Until then, let us raise our glasses in a toast to married life! ♥

BP Decorations and Food

One thing that I planned to have for my party as a ceiling decoration were balloons. I was hoping I could have helium-filled black and pink balloons with “Kate’s Bachelorette Party!” written on them but unfortunately, we couldn’t find any. Boo hoo!

Banner, party favours, invitation letter, cupcake toppers and door sign.

See how satisfied I was with my cupcake toppers? Heh. I also tried to make some of the foods served a bit fun, I called one of my canapés, Penis on the Cob. It’s basically just a cocktail hot dog with crab meat balls beside it.

Cheers! ♥


Party Favours

I love gifts! Who doesn’t? But aside from receiving gifts, I also enjoy giving them. I thought really hard about the best bachelorette party favours, I obviously haven’t attended one before this. So, I settled for something girly and handy, something they could use at the bar (which was our second stop) and something sweet.

Before I had the candy bags sealed, I put a Durex condom inside it. I bought some travel-size toiletries from Soap&Glory and some glow in the dark bracelets in different colours. After that, I packed it using cling wrap, wrapped it with pink special paper and then tied it with a black ribbon. I also made these:

Their initials are just stickers I bought from Accessorize and below is the photo of all the materials I used:

I was glad they all liked it. ♥
