    Default Bridal Shower and Bachalorette party

    My mom and I are hosting a bridal shower followed by a bachalorette
    party for my future sister-in-law the end of August. The bridal shower
    will be at my mom's home and we will be serving a light lunch. I
    wondered if anyone had any great ideas for party favors and little
    gifts (for bridal shower games). Any bridal shower games would be
    great too! My mom isn't too concerened about money for the gifts, but
    I would like to come up with some meaningful, pretty gifts. I have
    been to several bridal showers (7) in the past 3 years, but it is all
    the same family, so I don't really want to repeat the party favors I
    have seen. My mom and I are pretty crafty, so that shouldn't be a
    problem. Also, if anyone has any ideas for a bachalorette party in
    the Greater Boston area, we are going to have one right after the
    bridal shower. My future SIL is not into going to a stripclub or
    anything like that. Just something fun for everyone to do together
    the evening after the shower. Any thoughts would be greatly
    appreciated! Thank you.
    Jennifer

    When my friend got married, she and I did the favors for her shower
    ourselves, since we are the crafty ones. We took empty jars and
    wrapped them in mylar tissue & metallic paper tissue in gold (her
    colors were navy, forest green, and gold), and tied thick gauzy gold
    ribbon around it, then put flowers inside them. It was a homemade
    vase. We alternated the colors on the vases. The gold went on as the
    bottom layer, and tufted out above the jar opening, then we did 1 of
    the mylar tissues over it, doing the same so it tufted up over it,
    then put the ribbon around the neck of the jar, and hot glued it
    into place. We glued little artificial flowers over them. These
    would also work nice for wedding centerpeices.

    For candy dishes, we took tiny terra cotta flower pots, and did the
    same, but tied them with curling ribbon just under the wide "lip" of
    the pot, and filled them with candy to set out on the tables. Again,
    that would work well for weddings, too.

    For her bachlorette party, I drove them to my home town, which was
    about an hour and a half from where we all lived, but is the 2nd
    biggest town in Michigan (Grand Rapids). We went to the down town
    area where there are around 15-20 bars within walking distance of
    each other, and we just bar hopped from bar to bar, and dance club
    to dance club. We didn't do any strippers, either. We did do a cake
    & the presents back at the apartment we were staying in. It was fun
    for us, but all of us invited were in our mid 20's.

    Intrestingly enough, I had another friend who was getting married
    the weekend before them, and we did her bachlorette party the same
    weekend, since I would be in town (she lives down there). She's a
    much more reserved quiet girl. What we did with her was rent a hotel
    room at a hotel with a 24 hour indoor pool, and a hot tub. We drank
    some wine coolers in the room, then went to 1 bar for a brief time
    that had a dance floor and good music (and no cover charge, that's
    important!), then went back to the hotel, and played in the pool for
    most of the night. It was fun, and much more low-key than the bar
    hopping. Plus, I was still mostly hung over from the night before,
    which isn't hard for me to be since I rarely drink.
