Star Wars, a bachelorette party far, far away!

If you thought my two maids of honor could not possibly be more creative than they were for my FRIENDS TV show bridal shower, you would be mistaken! My Bachelorette party totally rocked!!! In a completely nerdy kind of way....

To begin with, again, the invitation was just ADORABLE!


For part one of the days' festivities, we met up at The Queen Mary for high tea on board ship!


My sister and I LOVE having tea and it was such a beautiful day! We had a plethora of teas and sweet and savory tea treats!




The tea room is on one of the upper decks, so there was a great view! The tea was superb and we all had a great time!


 For part two of the festivities, we headed to my best friend's house.  When I walked in the door, I about died of excitement when I realized that I was getting a Star Wars bachelorette party!!! OMG!!!


For those of you who don't know me as well, yes, I am a giant Star Wars nerd and have a lifelong crush on Harrison Ford! So, when I walked in and saw a life size cardboard cut out of none other than Han Solo himself, I was giddy with girly excitement! I immediately posed for a picture, which I of course sent to The Fiance telling him to try not to be too jealous-wink wink!


 My best friend's husband had helped her set up the decorations.  There were streamers, Star Wars ships and "planets" hanging from the ceiling.




The bathroom had an awesome Star Wars opening credits tribute to The Fiance and I.


 And, of course, all of the super yummy food had adorable Star Wars themed labels!





Once everyone arrived, we made some beverages and snacked on yummy goodies.






Then, it was time for GAMES! The first game was a "Favorite things from my boudoir" game. Its basically a bachelorette party version of a My favorite things party.  In short, each guest brings their favorite thing that goes along with whatever theme is given. BUT they bring 4 of their item of choice.  When the guest arrive, every guest gets their name put into a bucket 4 times.  Each guest then shares what their favorite item is.  In this party's case, boudoir items-wink wink!! As the Bride, I was given one of every one's favorite thing and I got to draw 3 names from the bucket and the names I drew got the other 3 items. So, basically each guest walks away with 3 new things! :)







 After that, we played "Kiss Han Solo".  Pretty much pin the tail on the donkey, bachelorette party style!  We each put on brightly colored lipstick and were blindfolded to then attempt to get as close to Han Solo's smoocher as we could with our kiss. I was a little sad, at first, when I realized we were going to "mess up" Han with bright, staining lipstick....


But, in the spirit of having fun, I went for it! (I opted for closing my eyes only so as not to ruin my freshly done eyelash extensions. I know, I'm lame! But, they were expensive and I promise, my eyes were closed super tight!)






No big shocker who won....ME of course!!! Thats right! And no, I did NOT peek! :)  After that, we hung out and girl talked for a bit. Then, it was time for cake!!! OMG! The cake made its own grand entrance!




 It was a Han Solo stripper cake!!!! I laughed so hard!!! Complete with sparklers AND a stripper pole!


 My sister had taken her Han Solo Ken doll and stripped him down to his chonies. She then added on a leopard print speedo, (made by hand out of leopard print washi tape)



I even gave him a tip, he was so AWESOME!


 BEST BACHELORETTE PARTY EVER!!!!!
