I feel as though I am still recovering from the blissful bachelorette last weekend - Did you see the photos?
As I mentioned earlier, there were over 20 girls in attendance at the lake, each of them a very special part of my sister's life. I wanted to add a little something unique to the weekend that could also be a small token of my appreciation to each girl for being such a great friend to my sister. I was very lucky to find these Stuart Wallace Designs cups on Etsy. Resuable, customized and a great price point!
Over the course of the day we were by the pool, up in the hotel room and on the sailboat before we were officially out for dinner and dancing. These cups were perfect for our daytime activities that were BYOB but not glassware friendly.
As a large group of college friends, the red Solo cup has definitely made a soft spot in our hearts but it was very fun to class it up this weekend with a custom design, in polka dots no less!

I love DIY party cups that I've seen before, but with the wedding, work and planning other parts of the bachelorette I simply would have never found time to make 20 cups. Not to mention that the supplies I would have needed to buy up front would have at least matched what I spent on ordering these. Add in that I can be a little crafticapped (you know, handicapped in the craft department) and I was giddy to find this shop.
To make life insanely easy for me, each cup was delivered to me pre-wrapped and labeled with the girl's name. I had them all sitting out on a table when the guests arrived at the hotel so each girl could pick up her cup, fill it with her go-go juice and make her way down to the pool!
Dealing with Amanda at Stuart Wallace Designs was also amazing. As you probably know, Etsy dealers can be hit or miss (if you'd like we can discuss the time I had to threaten getting the Better Business Bureau involved to get my Roman shade). Because of this I can be very untrusting ex-girlfriend on Etsy, but Amanda put all my anxieties to bed, or at least those pertaining to 20 plastic cups. Every single one was perfect, they were completed quickly and repsonses to my questions were always fast and exceptionally friendly.
