Bachelorette party: Pink!

Maybe you aren't a fan of the color, but one thing is for sure, nothing screams girly like pink!

So, if your woman of honour (the bride, of course) is into pink, then how about a pink themed bachelorette party?

Now, we all know the typical bachelorette party:

Umm, yeah.

You should certainly encourage the bride to get crazy, however, you don't need to do it covered in phallic parophenelia.

Centerpiece ideas

Now, remember, you do not need to spend a lot of money on these. The most inexpensive way to create a couple of beautiful centerpieces is to go to a local floral shop, farmers market stand, or even grocery store and pick up a few great looking blooms and some greenery. Arrange them in a vase and you're finished.

Some inexpensive options that come in a lot of colours and are widely available: hydrangeas or carnations

Cut the stems at an angle so that they will absorb water easier

Add floral preservative to the water so that the flowers will last longer

Another easy centerpiece idea?
Floating candles in transparent vase with pink marbles along the bottom (inexpensive dollar store purchase)

1 tablespoon superfine sugar
4 ounces seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 3/4 cup), plus a small wedge for garnish
2 ounces white rum
1/2 cup ice cubes

Combine mint, lime, and sugar and muddle until sugar is dissolved. Add watermelon, and muddle until broken down.

Going out later?

Here's where you should definitely add in a little more "traditional" fun to the party

Pink koozies for the guests; how about customized for the bride and bridesmaids?

A customised sash is a great way to make the bride stand out and feel special
