bloody british birds getting pissed

a lot of energy and planning goes into goes into having fun.
we decided awhile ago that we wanted to have a "british" theme for lindsay's bachelorette.
so many great ideas -
fascinators, scones, tea, the accent, the slang, the gloves.

so we made arrangements and started crafting.
first, i decorated a royal chalice for the bride:
a HUGE plastic wine glass found at party city.
i bought scrap booking letters and glitter
and tried to make it shine.
i also bought 8 more littler plastic wine glasses
for all the other girls to use at the wineries and to take home as a party favor.


i bought her a bachelorette sash a cirillas.
and yes, it's embarrassing to be there even if it's just for bridal items.

then, i got lucky and found little white gloves online
for everyone for only $2 a piece.
here are kass and i sporting our london look, gloves and all.

i made lindsay's fascinator first.
it was pretty easy so i decided to make mine too.

my mom and her family are from england
so we have an amazing recipe for cherry scones
and english fruit tarts.
they were a big hit with the girls.

finally, our london look was complete,
and we were ready to go.
we road-tripped to hermann,
changed into our party dresses in the parking lot of a gas station
and had the best bloody weekend ever.

england couldn't handle this.

happy bachelorette, linds!
