I'm writing this from the Portland Airport on my way to Las Vegas for my best friend, Laura's, bachelorette party! The weather report is predicting rain this weekend. Seriously, WTF Vegas? You're a desert.
Forecast aside, I'm fully prepared for the weekend. I even got a spray tan (judge me.) When eleven girls are involved you never know when the inspiration for celebration will strike! So, it's best to have confetti on hand, at. all. times.
Here's a how-to for the confetti-filled bachelorette favors I made for the occasion:
- Hole Punch Confetti - apparently you can buy massive amounts of this from party stores for a few dollars. I didn't know that, so I've been emptying out every hole puncher in the office for the last year.
- Glassine Envelopes - ordered from ClearBags.Com (talk about a useful website, the internet rocks!)
- Washi Tape
- write your message. I printed "in the event of spontaneous celebration" on these waxy bags by taping them onto a piece of paper and putting them through a xerox machine. I'm sure there's a more technological way to do it.
- fill with confetti
- tape closed with washi (patterned masking) tape
and done! They're ready for you to tear open in the moment of spontaneous celebration.
