Tips for Throwing the Perfect Bachelorette Party

Bachelorette Party (1)It seems like throwing a wild and crazy bachelor party gets most of the attention when it comes to pre-wedding planning, but we don’t think this is fair.  In fact, we think that the bride-to-be deserves a last hooray too!

If you agree with us and are in charge of planning a bachelorette party, we want to help you make it a night to remember. Here are a few tips and ideas to get you started.

Call in the troops – Sure you might be in charge, but there’s no reason you have to do it alone. Enlist every friend you can find to help with the planning. This will take the pressure off and ensure that the night goes smoothly. It’s also a great way to brainstorm ideas.

Remember the bride – It’s important to remember that while you’re in charge of the night, this is not your party! This is all about the bride, so keep that in mind while you make plans. Make sure that the evening represents what she would want, even if it’s not your idea of fun.

Ask the bride – You should ask the bride two important things before you start making plans. The first is what they want the party to be like and perhaps most importantly, you need to ask what they don’t want during their special evening. Everyone has their own ideas and boundaries, and this will help you honor their wishes.

Have a plan B – Even the best of plans can go wrong. People get sick, dates and times need to change, entertainment falls through….so don’t expect everything to go right. Consider some alternatives for things to do, entertainment, and fun places to go. Thinking through a worst case scenario will reduce the stress should something go wrong.

And don’t forget our final, most important bachelorette party tip – enjoy yourself! Don’t get so caught up in getting things done and playing host that you forget to enjoy the fun you’ve planned! This is a once-in-a-lifetime night so get ready to make it one nobody will ever forget!

 

 

Setting the Mood with Candlelight

We think the idea of creating a mood is one that gets overlooked. When you think about it, however, it makes a lot of sense. When you put on your exercise clothes, you feel more like exercising. When you dress up for work, you feel confident and ready to take on the day. But for some reason we’re supposed  to just be in the mood for romance without any effort?

Well, here at In the Garden of Eden we know that setting the mood is a big part of getting into the mood! We also know that it’s not really that hard to do. For starters, why not turn off the lights and set out some candles? This is one of the easiest ways to create an atmosphere that’s right for love.

The flickering light of candles instantly set a romantic mood. Candlelight is soft and more flattering than your bedroom light. Let’s face it–it’s far easier to be confident when you’re not under harsh lighting. You can light as many or as few as you want, allowing you to customize the lighting to match your mood.

Candles also come in many mood-enhancing scents. For instance, jasmine has an old-fashioned romantic scent that many people find alluring. Ylang Ylang is an exotic scent that is considered to have aphrodisiac properties.

Ultimately though, the scents that work for you are unique. It may even take a few tries before you settle on your favorite. Nothing wrong with that!

Bachelorette Party Time!

Not only is the big wedding day almost here, but all that wedding planning can aggravate nerves during what should be a blissful time in your life.

Treasure the Triangle

We have all been there. We have teenage daughters and it is time to have “the talk” with them. Mine went something like this: Here are the brochures from Planned Parenthood. These are the diseases you can get if you don’t practice safe sex. Sex is wonderful, but only when you are old enough to appreciate what is happening. Don’t do it if it doesn’t feel right. The standard, blah, blah, blah stuff you hear parents spouting as they are praying their kid doesn’t take after them.

I have to say, this last week, during drinks with my friends K and M, I got a huge case of the giggles. K and D were explaining to their daughter about how she needed to “Treasure the Triangle” after learning she has a boyfriend. Poor little thing, super sweet, good as gold, and NOT anywhere near ready to have sex. However, upon learning about treasuring the triangle, from both parents, I am sure she is even LESS ready to have the sex act occur.

Which brings me to this: Ladies, do you treasure your triangle? Do you think, just because you are not a virgin, that you must not place a certain amount of “holy grail” to your girl area? I challenge all of you to TREASURE YOUR TRIANGLE! Don’t just be giving it out there. Respect the Triangle, too.

Regifting and the Tongue Vibrator

regifting

After an enormously entertaining dinner with my cousins one night, I found out a couple of things. One, we are a family of fun-loving freaks. Two, we all re-gift — even adult novelties.

When we first opened, J got a Lingo as one of her party gifts. It is a snazzy little device, it slides on your tongue, and is used for oral sex. If I can figure out how to upload the pic, you will see it here.

Anyway, J was the very first home party I had ever done. You have read some of the stories here. As a home party hostess, you get really cool prizes/gifts/whatever you want to call them. Turns out, I am not the only regifter in the family. J had a bachelorette party to go to, the bride was a lesbian, and this seemed like the perfect gift for them to have.

I apologize ahead of time if you were the recipient of said gift. It is really a cool toy. Gives just the right amount of buzz while your partner is going down on you.

Enjoy!
