lemon drop party favor

Recently I organized a little "Dinner & Drinks with the Bachelorette" evening in Athens for this pretty lady who is getting married in two weeks!

When you google bachelorette party favors, the #1 result always has something to do with male parts. Well I wanted to make something a little classier than that...

So I came up with this little cocktail favor.

Small Glasses (we used these from IKEA)
Smirnoff Citrus, airplane bottles
Yellow Starbursts
Cellophane Wrap
Small party favor bags, clear
Divine Twine, black and white
Recipe tags (or any tags you want to add, we had a total of 3 - lemon wedge, recipe, and a thank you)

Simply put 1 airplane bottle of alcohol, some lemonheads (I pre-portioned some in the little favor bags since I couldn't find individually wrapped candies), and some starbursts in each glass. Then wrap in cellophane and tie with the twine. Then attach all the little tags and voila - a fun little cocktail favor.
They were a big hit!

vote for Baby G!

Yep, we've become those parents - we entered Baby G into the GAP Casting Call. We weren't going to do it at first, but then the possibility of just winning a big (as in $1000 big) GAP gift card made it seem worth while (and that's not even the grand prize!). and seriously, who wouldn't want this baby representing GAP? He's so dang cute! and he sits now!

So above are the 5 photos we entered into the contest (each photo a separate entry). If you want, you can vote for Baby G here, here, here, here, and here. YOU CAN VOTE FOR EACH PHOTO ONCE PER DAY - through November 14. That's a lot of votes!

Wish us luck!
♥ the parents

clock screen saver + happy weekend

...get this cool screen saver from Real Simple.

And as the last weekend of the regular baseball season, we're going to try and take Baby G to his first ever Braves game. Then we have a his & her shower to attend on Sunday for our favorite couple.

Have a happy weekend!
