As we in Helsinki hit -20 last weekend, this girl fell ill. Now recuperating from a flu, this week week has been tough but interesting and eventful. Last weekend was all about my sis' bachelorette party! Unfortunately I couldn't tell you beforehand about it, because it would have spoiled the surprise. But let me show you what her bachelorette party was all about!
We had a Mad Men/50's theme for the party and all of us attending wore dots. It worked out perfectly and I think we had a marvellous day that we'll all remember for life!
We started out at a café called Bulevardin kahvisalonki where we surprised my sis over a champgne brunch. Since I had been working at the Nordic Travel Fair on Thursday and Friday, it was only natural that my sis thought that I would be working there also during the weekend, as I have done so for many years already. Needless to say the surprise was perfect and this girl shedded a tear.
From the café we catched a bus and headed for the Cable Factory, a former factory building, now turned into museums, cafés, studios and theaters. Our destination was the studio of burlesque artist Bettie Blackheart! Bettie guided us to a workshop focused on hair decorations, make up, hairdos and posing! Bettie's studio was a girly girl's heaven with tons of girly stuff: jewelry, make up, costumes - you name it! My sis loved it and she was turned into a beautiful red dressed vamp at Bettie's!
The rest of the day was spent having in-between drinks at legendary restaurant bar Ilves, seeing a hilarious stand up gig at Lilla Teatern, enjoying food & drinks at texmex restaurant Cantina West and ending up at our apartment for a pyjamas party!
Man, did we have fun! With bittersweet feelings, I was thrilled over how well the day went and all the planning paid off! Have you ever joined a bachelorette party? What would you like for yours?
