I’m a firm believer that a bachelorette party doesn’t have to be tacky. But it is a great opportunity for a bride-to-be to have a lot of fun with her closest friends. To celebrate her sister Liz’s impending nuptials, my friend Clara (of Reckless in the Kitchen) asked me to design decorations that incorporated Liz’s wedding colors (navy blue, lime green and white) and would make her bachelorette party feel special.
Since this was another party that would need to be portable, I used mainly card stock and ribbon to put together decorations that would add a lot of color to the final tablescape.
For favors, I decorated wine glasses with the initials of the guests. For the bride, I did “E&J” on one side (for Elizabeth and James) with their wedding date on the other side.
To make wine bottles more festive, but without having to remove and relabel the bottles, I made wine bottle cards that slipped over the bottles.
The banner was made with card stock and decorative nautilus shells, which Liz loves.
I also added tissue paper garland to decorate the table.
I made cupcake toppers with paper flowers I found at Michael’s, which I also used to decorate mason jar wraps. My circle punch came in handy for these items, as well as for table confetti.
Lime green apples for a nice Fall tie-in 🙂
Here’s the table all set up, which Clara will recreate for Liz’s party. Congrats Liz!

How did you do the wine glasses? Or I guess a better question is what did you use in place of the letters?
I used letter stickers and painted the dots around them with oil-based sharpies. Then I just removed the stickers with tweezers. Thanks for looking!
I love these! When using oil based sharpie, are they able to be hand washed?
Thanks Jessica! Once the pieces are dried and baked in the oven (per the instructions on the Sharpies) I’ve found they stand up well to hand washing, but I wouldn’t recommend putting them in the dishwasher.
Just stumbled upon your blog as I am planning a bridal shower for a friend who’s wedding colors are kelly green and navy! Your blog post is perfect since I am not the creative type! Thank you!
Just made 12 of these wine glasses for my friend’s birthday winery trip. Thanks so much for the idea! 🙂
You’re very welcome! Wine and crafts, my two favorite things 🙂
Beautiful party idea! Can you tell me where you found the nautilus shell pattern for the banner? Thanks!
