Mardi Gras Masks and the Fold, Part 1

This past weekend, Love & I celebrated the upcoming wedding of a mutual friend with a bachelorette party. This was my first-ever bachelorette party, and I was helping to plan it! The four of us that were there all contributed to the planning and execution of a very personal bachelorette party. 

None of us really had a lot of money for a huge bash, so we chose to spend our budget on some fun bach finds from Party City.

First, we found some fun-looking truth-or-dare games to play. This first one looked really fun--lotto-style truth or dare! Scratch off one pair of lips from each row and do what the card says. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for, and at $1.99 for 12 cards, we ended up rubbing through the dare, rather than to the dare. Oh well. Obviously, I would not recommend this product...

But aren't they so cute?!

The other game we had was more think about. This was the truth or dare card deck from Party City. Players draw a card with a dare and a point value and decide whether or not they will complete the dare. If you chose to accept, you have 10 minutes to complete the task. If you are successful, you keep the card. Once you've gone through the whole deck, the player with the most points wins. We were at a restaurant rather than a bar, so it was a little difficult to participate. But reading through the cards was enough entertainment on its own, really. We've decided to keep the deck and bring it back out for a future bachelorette party at a bar. This is a great game, particularly for the price.

The last game we purchased from Party City was by far my favorite. We played this at our old-school (except this time there was alcohol...) sleepover. Pin the Bow Tie on the Bachelor was a fun game, and who knew that such a classic would be THAT much more entertaining once you're tipsy?! And at $2.99, you just can't beat it. (Also, you get to decide where on the bachelor the bow tie is "supposed" to go.)

In addition to our fun games from Party City, we also provided some bachelorette wear. We included the obligatory Bach Sash, as well as a fantastic engagement ring headband and veil that the MOH found in Birmingham. We didn't leave the bachelorette alone in the silliness, though: we joined her with Mardi Gras masks (bach party style) and miniature tiaras. Here we are all decked out--and in a packed O'Charley's!

That's Love on the left, then MOH, Bachelorette, Bridesmaid, and Amoré on the right
