Last fling before the ring - Buy my sis a shot she's tying the knot

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?

  3. no I haven't, to be honest. and actually I feel like I don't need one too.. I'm just not interested in stuff like that and I don't want a big fairytale wedding. the smaller the better :) but that's me and I respect all other opinions too.
    your sister's party looks like a really fabulous one btw and I like the fact that you did something classy and exciting not something strange and stupid like I have seen in Estonia where girls run around dressed like you know who.. I just don't get it and it's ridiculous in my eyes.
