DIY Bachelorette Party Decor

DIY Bachelorette Party Decor

To celebrate Ali’s bachelorette party, a group of us rented a house in Palm Springs, CA for the weekend. I was charged with organizing and decor.  As a paper nerd / DIY enthusiast, I was horrified at the tackiness of all things bachelorette. From the Barbie pink colors, to the plastic tacky phallic decor, I had to DIY some elegant & chic alternatives!  I wanted to break the mould by using an elegant color palette, a fun mix of materials / shapes, elegant type, and no glitter (I hate glitter).

Here is some inspiration that I found on the Etsy that were cool but still not cutting it for me.  Lia Griffith’s Fairy Paper Crown was a huge inspiration in making this crown for Ali. Ali has simple and elegant taste with a love for patterns!

 

Color Palette — I love the idea of mixing gold/embossed textures with dark hues and minimal pinks.

The banner inside, the confetti was everywhere! We all wrote notes and printed pics from my Zink and decorated this keepsake box for the bride to be to take home after the weekend.

 

I can’t really post any other pics since we were sworn not to post from the bachelorette. But I’ve receive a lot of great feedback and will be setting up an online shop for the elegant party peckers, so stay tuned!
