Weekend Wrap Up & Giveaway Winner!

Hi loves! I hope you all had a great weekend and a good start to your week. I'm so sorry for the late post, but I wanted to make sure that I had the chance to tell you about the weekend and announce our first giveaway winner! Let's start with the weekend...

Last week I told you about the bachelorette weekend that we were planning for my soon to be sister in law Melinda. It was such a blast - everything went even better than planned! 

A lingerie shower hosted by Katie kicked off our fun filled weekend. We kept the food light with champagne vinaigrette salad, goat cheese and grapes, cherries, fondue, chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry whoopie pies and cupcakes.


Here is a close up of the strawberry whoopie pies that I made. I followed this recipe from Sprinkles Bakes and they were delicious! At the last minute (aka, 5pm when the party started at 7:30pm) I decided to make these cute pink banners for the whoopie pies. I think it adds a little something extra. 


We created a fun champagne bar with mango and blood orange juice mixers. Key lime infused water was also served.


The beautiful bride to be arriving! 


The next morning we drove down to South Beach, checked into the Gansevoort, and got ready for the rooftop pool party. 


We laid out in this cabana which was gorgeous, but I was just excited that I had some shade and didn't have to wear SPF 50 all day! 


Later in the day we moved downstairs to a more relaxed pool on the 3rd floor


After laying out we got ready for dinner and took pictures before the Miami humidity hit our hair! 


All of the girls in the lobby before dinner. We wore black while the bride wore white. 


We had awesome sushi at Bond Street in the Townhouse hotel.


After eating dinner we had drinks at the W 



And then we went to Club Louis at the Gansevoort for dancing! 


I definitely recommend all of these places if you are planning a weekend in Miami! 
We had an awesome time celebrating Melinda. 

Now, onto the Anthropologie/Lila Grace giveaway winner...number 8, Ashley from In This Beautiful Life! 


 Congratulations! Ashley, I will email you :) Thank you SO much to everyone for your participation in our first giveaway. Your sweet comments and support mean the world to me!
