the ultimate bachelorette final fiesta in scottsdale!

Recently, we celebrated my baby sister’s upcoming nuptials by spending a long weekend in Scottsdale. The weekend was filled with friends, family and lots of laughs. Since Rachel recently moved out west, and we were holding the party in the wild wild west, we decided to name the weekend “Rachel’s Final Fiesta”! 

I wanted to make sure to let all the girls know that we so appreciated them making the trek out to celebrate Rachel, so I put together little gift bags. To decorate the outside of the bags I used a cookie cutter to trace a cacti and then glue and glitter to add some bedazzle. I found a fun stamp to add a cute saying to the bag as well. It was easy and went along with the theme.

I filled the bags with advil, tums, chapstick and of course the staple to any weekend Bachelorette party, Bride Tribe Shirts! 

What's a weekend Bachelorette party without matching tanks? We wanted to have something for all the girls to wear not only for the weekend, but also for the day of the wedding. We went with a local company, FlashPointeInk. They were so easy to work with, and made it a simple process to send over 17 different sizes and 2 different styles. We were all so pleased with the quality! I have washed mine twice, and they have withheld the process, which is huge for these types of shirts. 

Don't they look great? This shows both the tank and the t-shirt option that we went with!

Looking to order a large group of shirts? Mention this blog post, or any of my Instagram posts where @flashpointeink is mentioned, and receive 10% off any bulk order of 12 or more shirts. They are a great husband and wife team, who made this process SO easy for me. Make sure to check them out! 

Friday morning we decided to get outdoors and since we were staying so close to Camelback Mountain, we thought that would be the best place to hike. If you have been to Phoenix, you have more than likely heard of or seen Camelback Mountain. It was so fun to see all the girl's reactions to our beautiful scenery. I still pinch myself on a daily basis, because this is what I can hike whenever I want! I think we may have even convinced a few of the girls to make the move out west! 

We catered a dinner Friday night from a local Mexican restaurant, which turned out to be super yummy and super fun. It was so worth the price to not be standing in the kitchen all day cooking and prepping for the dinner party. 

Remember the glitter trials post a few weeks back? Well, I was prepping to glitterify the party! I did simple vases along the bottoms of margarita glasses. I got the glasses from Dollar General, for $1 and had all of the other supplies on hand. So, it turned out to be a super simple and cheap party favor.

I opted to use the tape method for these and they turned out perfectly.

Instead of using the common margarita mix, I opted for a less sweet homemade version.  

1 can of frozen limeade
Use empty can as measuring cup!
1 can of Gold Tequiila
1 Corona
1 can of 7-Up

Mix all together and serve chilled! 

Who doesn't love photo booth props? They make every party have a solid theme and are so fun to see when they are posted all over social media. We went through the Etsy Shop, LeStudioRose, and were super pleased with everything. She did a fiesta theme and even threw in a few Bachelorette themes ones, which we were so happy with!

It ended up being the perfect weekend, so I am so glad we planned an outdoor activity for Saturday. Old Town Scottsdale is such a fun place, and we wanted to find something that would take us around and let us have fun at the same time! Scottsdale Party Bike was exactly that for us! They accommodated our large group and let us have two bikes, that rode together throughout the afternoon. You are able to BYOB, which makes the day even more fun, and listen to whatever music you want to listen to!! Throughout the two hours you can make as many stops as you want around Old Town Scottsdale. It was nice to jump off the bike for a bit, and grab a drink inside a bar or even window shop a bit.

Not to mention we got a nice two hour workout, because yes it is powered by the riders, don't be fooled!

Scottsdale fun

The drivers were fun and made sure to get everyone involved and having time! I would totally recommend this to large groups of people or even a couple looking for a fun date night.
