Sarah's French Boudoir Themed Lingerie Party

Hi Everyone! Today we are resharing our very first post featuring the bachelorette party I threw for my best friend last year. We have tons of new followers since our first post, and we thought you all would enjoy seeing the party since you most likely missed it the first time!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I recently had the privilege of being the Maid of Honor for my gorgeous and talented best friend, Sarah. While I plan on posting tips and tricks on how to throw the perfect bachelorette weekend, as well as DIYs, I thought I would start out by showing y'all the French boudoir themed lingerie party that I put together for her.

I threw the shower at The Spencer House in The Colony, TX. It's a Victorian mansion in the middle of the city, and its seriously the coolest place. It was the perfect setting to create the vintage feel that I was going for.

The invite, complete with lingerie insert.

I loved the invites. Anything pink and black and I'm game. I found them off of Etsy for super cheap, the lady sent me the template, and then I had them printed at a local print shop. It saved me tons of money!










Chalkboard anything looks pretty fantastic. I found this idea here, and knew I had to have it for the shower.

These puff balls were a beast to make. My mom and I found the link from here. I think they turned out perfect!

The Favors

I found a recipe for raspberry lemon bath scrub from here, and thought it would be the perfect favor for a boudoir themed shower. The bath scrubs smelled amazing, looked amazing, and seriously make my skin like silk. I may or may not have taken a few for myself;) I printed the labels from here.






I thought it would be fun to drink out of vintage milk glasses, but they are so dang expensive. My mom, who is seriously the most creative person ever, told me that a lot of people had been using Starbucks Frappucino bottles as milk glasses. We bought a case from Costco, had people drink them, and then took the labels off and attached lace and ribbon with glue dots. So cute.

I think that food labels make everything fancy so I knew we had to have some at the shower. I wanted the chalk look, but didn't want to spend money or time spraying chalkboard paint. My mom and I found the idea of chalkboard printables on the internet from here. We then printed them out, and put them in cute gold vintage frames that my mom happened to have already.


Are these cookies not the cutest thing you have ever seen. I asked Sarah's friend Kelly to make them, and to use this as inspiration. She completely blew me away.



This cake is from Kroger! Looks way fancier than that huh? We asked them to make us a pink cake, and then I made a cake bunting from a design I found off the internet and attached them to the vintage straws we were using for everything else.



Christmas lights wrapped in white tulle. You can use this idea for any event just by changing the color of the tulle.

I thought it would be fun to do a Photo Booth at the lingerie shower so Sarah could have more pictures of who was able to make it. I downloaded free Photo Booth props off the internet, attached them to the vintage straws I had ordered, and set up a white sheet behind a window. It ended up being quite the hit, and now Sarah has tons of pictures!





Sarah's bridal party. Hottest bridal party everrrrrr.



My mom found vintage lingerie that we incorporated throughout the rooms.


I bought this eiffel tower from Hobby Lobby, and then made alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.


And of course the biggest key to a successful lingerie shower is the lingerie itself. Sarah got so much! Evan was a lucky guy;)


I ordered these stickers from Etsy and had them personalized for Sarah. We then stuck them on the bottom of gold Kisses and Rolos, and put them in a jar in the gift room for people to snack on. It's all about the details y'all!

Clothespin Game
 Each guest was given three clothespins and a list of words they weren't allowed to say. You have to use words that people would normally say at a lingerie party so I outlawed Sarah, Evan, bride, groom, wedding, marriage, honeymoon, and lingerie. It was so funny watching people catch others saying the words, and then stealing their pins. Whoever got the most pins won a prize. 


 And last but not least a picture of Jax, my little sister, who made an appearance. Isn't she the cutest?



Questions for you:

Have you thrown a fun party lately?

Where do you get your ideas from?

Do you use Etsy?

  30. There’s little question that Epson printers are one among the simplest printers that you simply can find within the market within your budget. But best doesn’t mean it might be perfect. There’s a high chance of confronting a mistake Code 0x97 if you're using Epson printer especially for an extended time. The error code 0x97 can occur at any time without giving any warning messages or signs. Usually such a mistake presents itself on the printer with an indicator to show the printer OFF and ON again. Basically, this error code will show up during the printing and your printer will stop printing any documents afterwards. Therefore, until this error is been shown abreast of the pc screen, you won’t be ready to use your printer. Hence, attempt to cope-up this particular error code as soon as possible and print the document hassle-freely.The Epson XP-830 error code 0x97 generally has been arisen simply because of some internal hardware issue. There are some selective Epson printer’s models that face this particular hardware problem where their motherboard stops functioning any longer . When the hardware issue happens, the user is restricted to hold out functionalities of the printer. The proficient engineers have come up with workarounds for this problem but the permanent solution for this glitch is to repair or replacing the older printer to the new one. This error generally pops abreast of the screen with none prior warning; your printer will display a message to modify off your device then turn it on back.

  33. The quality of the screen of an eReader is really important. I could handle slower page turns, but if the screen has glare or it hurts your eyes to read more than half an hour it's going in the bin. Amazon took the Kindle 2 and improved the screen drastically when they released number 3. The official numbers say 50% better contrast than the Kindle 2 and I believe them. The screen contrast of the Nook is about the same as Kindle 2 so the new Kindle is miles ahead. kindle fire not charging
