Poolside Party

6 Jul

This past weekend I travled home to NH to celebrate my best friend’s bachelorette party. This blushing bride enjoys low keys settings so we surprised her with cocktails by the pool followed by a delicious tapas dinner out on the town. The poolside party was the perfect backdrop for our pre-Aruba destination wedding! I used this opportunity as an excuse to put my party planning skills to the test.

The colors of our bridesmaids dresses are called “watermelon” so I thought it would be fitting to supply everyone with the same shade in my favorite nail polish brand.

An array of fuchsia flowers in assorted vases with matching plates and napkins set the table scape.

Although not photographed, we also enjoyed some pre-tapas dinner tapas. To go along with our pink theme, we sipped strawberry belinis and enjoyed some crackers with goat cheese smothered with rhubarb jam. Also, we snacked on some “pink” shrimp cocktail.

For fun, I filled a candy dish with ringpops so all our future brides to be wouldn’t feel left out.
