Wastin' Away Again...

A couple weeks ago I helped out with the planning for a bachelorette party for one of my very good friends. The party was held in Okoboji, a lake town in northwest Iowa. It's a fabulous summer getaway and the perfect atmosphere for a laid-back girls' weekend.
The bride-to-be's love of margaritas plus our destination easily led to our theme - Okobojiville!

My favorite part of the planning were making the invitations. I had far too much fun putting them together!

Gratuitious work station/Cricut shot.

The lake house we stayed at already had an interior that lent itself to the atmosphere we needed so the decor was limited; but here are a few shots anyway!


Customized margarita glasses for everyone!


And of course, we had fabulous margaritas! Warm weather may be coming to an end, but you should definitely find a reason to try these:

1 part tequila
1 part triple sec
1 part Grand Marnier 
3 parts non-alcoholic margarita mix
Splash of orange juice

The bachelorette enjoyed her weekend and all the guests had a blast!
