Bachelorette Weekend & Blogger Meet Up!

she had a cocktail in her hand and confetti in her hair
- Kate Spade

I love this quote by Kate Spade and I think it will perfectly describe this weekend...we are having my soon to be sister in law's bachelorette party in South Beach! Mel (Melinda) is marrying my brother in law and I could not be happier. I met her 2 years ago through a dinner club that I belong to and immediately knew there was something special about her. Well I introduced Mel and Patrick about a year and a half ago (my 2nd time as a matchmaker!) and after a little while they hit it off! They got engaged in April and have had such a beautiful romance. 

We are kicking off her bachelorette weekend with a lingerie shower in Fort Lauderdale on Friday night. 

I am going to wear this dress by Lela Rose,
(thank goodness for Rent the Runway! i can wear this dress for a fraction of the price!)

attempt to make these super cute pink whoopie pies,

and give Mel one of these handmade cards with her present (tutorials to come!)

On Saturday we are leaving Fort Lauderdale early in the morning and heading to the Gansevoort hotel on South Beach where we will stay on Saturday night. 

We will spend by day by the pool, 

get changed into our cutest black party dresses...I am wearing this Haute Hippie dress,

have dinner at my favorite sushi restaurant Bond Street
(I came to love it in NYC, and they opened a restaurant in Miami),

and dance the night away! 

Can you tell I'm excited for this fun girls weekend to celebrate the beautiful Melinda?!

I am also super excited for my first blogger meet up tonight! A group of South Florida bloggers are going out for mexican food in Boca Raton. Kara invited me to join and I am really looking forward to meeting other local girls who blog.

Finally, don't forget to join Lila Grace's first giveaway here! The winner will receive a $50 gift card to Anthropologie and a Lila Grace picture frame! I hope you have a wonderful day!
