Happy New Year everyone!
So I know I’m really behind with blog posts, but I’m ready to get caught up.
So when my roommate Heidi was getting married, we decided her bachelorette party needed to be something that really reflected who she is and what she loves. We also wanted people to dress up, because things are just way more fun when you’re wearing a costume! Heidi LOVES to read, so we thought a library theme would be perfect. And what should people dress up as???? Why, sassy librarians of course! Not your typical Vegas-club-doin’ shots sort of bachelorette party!
I designed the invitations as a bookmark and printed them through White House Custom Color, my favorite pro photo lab. Then sent them in these craft paper envelopes from Paper Source. I love that store!
One of the bridesmaids, Robin, lives in a really cool old house in Orange, which had the perfect feel for our library theme. Warm and cozy! Not to mention an awesome dining room!
We piled books everywhere.
We had a yummy sit down dinner and Robin bought these little books for favors and put one at each place.
I made these little library cards and use them as place cards. The 110710 at the top was the wedding date. Heidi’s dad was a pastor and has a file folder full of quote that he used for sermons. Heidi has always loved that and said she wanted it one day. So we had each person bring a favorite quote from a book to write on their card and give to Heidi to start her own quote collection. It was really fun to see what people brought.
Lots of argyle and glasses and pearls.
Here’s the Lawrence Ave gals: Heidi and me and Nicole, my current roommate. And by the way, she just got engaged and is getting married March 12th! Crazy!
