When I set out to plan Tami’s bachelorette party (which I have been looking forward to planning for a very long time now), I knew I wanted to create a weekend away with lots of memorable details. I thought it would be fun to continue with the Garden Glam theme and chose sunny San Diego as our destination.

In the past, our fondest memories of these type of parties have been of spending all of our down time in a common space. I knew I wanted to rent a place for us all to stay together and turned to Airbnb for just the right location. This vibrant, sunny loft in La Jolla couldn’t have been better!

I made sure to include tons of personal touches that I knew Tami would like. Her bridesmaids / friends who were not able to make it for the weekend sent their own special gifts as well. Our sister, Rebecca created this “wine bottle of wishes” for all of the girls to sign and we love that Tami can later keep it on display in her home bar.

Even the wine, rose, and champagne bottles stuck with the color scheme, and we had a special bottle of tequila (Tami’s favorite) for shots.

My favorite detail were these embellished wine glasses. Each a little different and with a gold initial so the girls knew which was theirs all weekend long.

A little gift was left on each bed; champagne bubble candies and a small homemade tag of thanks.

To make the girls feel more at home, I included a tray in one of the bathrooms with some fun, pink necessities and a couple candles.

In the other bathroom, a bowl of everyone’s favorite lip balm was set out with some fresh flowers.

Before Tami’s arrival, I set the coffee table with all of the items needed for our first night activities. The night was spent eating, chatting, wine tasting, playing a fun drinking game of who knows Tami best, gift opening, and overall hanging with a great group of girls.

Even Tami’s gifts matched the theme and color scheme.

Upon Tami’s arrival, she was greeted with this gorgeous, fresh floral crown and a glass of pink wine of course. She was asked along with the other guests to go change into their chic sleepwear for a slumber party-esque evening in.

We sat down and enjoyed a light yet filling meal of sushi and this fabulous cheese display with lots of fun crackers and dried fruits.

We then moved over to the living area and put Tami on the spot. A little party to help her pack her suitcase for her honeymoon and the game was fun too!

We ended the night with this gorgeous naked cake. Thanks Ashlee for your fabulous work as always!

The next morning, the girls awoke to this breakfast spread; a mimosa bar, yogurt parfaits, and delicious toasts created by Maya. A gift was also given as a clue for the next activity.



We then made our way to the marina and boarded our very own catamaran, Tami in her new white cover-up.

I found these fun napkins at Michael’s and thought they would be a festive addition to our snacks on the boat. We enjoyed our afternoon; sailing, relaxing, meeting new friends, and sun bathing.

That evening, we had a fabulous dinner at Whisknladle in La Jolla. We loved our meals and the champagne sent to our table from one of Tami’s friends. Cheers to the beautiful Bride!

Our evening continued in downtown San Diego at a fun bar called Tipsy Crow … Fun memories were made, but I think this is the only picture we got!

We ended the trip with one last gift clue getting Tami ready for her new “lifey”. An off the shoulder shirt to wear that says “wifey”.

We really had a great weekend spent with great girls, and I hope it fit Tami’s standards! Thank you to everyone who came and helped especially to Maya! I couldn’t have done any of this without you! The wedding is just one month away, we are going cake tasting tonight, and we are just getting more and more excited for the big day.
