This past weekend Bri and Kris traveled down to Palm Springs to celebrate Meredith’s second-to-last weekend as a single woman! With the beautiful backdrop of Palm Springs, we couldn’t have been more excited to celebrate our friend in style at the lovely Villa Carmelita!
The weekend began with pool time and champs, courtesy of the beautiful Bubbly Bar.
Meredith’s fabulous MOH Whitney pulled together thoughtful and creative party favor gifts, including adorable personalized water bottles (perfect for hydrating in the Palm Springs sun), custom hair ties titled “To Have and To Hold…Your Hair Back!” (and yes, they were the fabulous ones that do not crinkle your hair!), and a very practical Emergency Kit filled with bachelorette weekend essentials (Shout Wipes, Chapstick, Advil, etc.).
An aside: that beautiful flower arrangement on the table was courtesy of our bride-to-be’s thoughtful fiancé, Denison!
A Triple Knotter’s bachelorette party would not be complete without a whole lot of gold—including gold balloons! (via Etsy)
Customized cocktail napkins, foil straws and candy finished off the festive look.
Friday night started with homemade Pasta Puttanesca (courtesy of the multi-talented MOH Whit!)
…and continued with merriment – and a cocktail or three- into the wee hours. Late-night partiers were treated to this lovely evening view of the courtyard.
Saturday morning continued with more pool time (who wouldn’t at this gorgeous property) and more cocktails, including these beyond fabulous bloody mary’s, which were adorned with a bacon garnish.
We all got a fantastic throwback to our 20s when the keg cups and ping-pong balls came out. Girls paired up for a game of beer pong, but wait! We have to disinfect the table first! (This is something we never would have thought about in college!)
Turns out while we’re a bit more conscientious about cleanliness, we aren’t quite as good at the game anymore. It took a bit longer than we expected to wrap up the first match, so we moved on to Flip Cup!
After flip cup, Whit got the BBQ going and we noshed on a delicious grilled lunch and continued to lounge by the pool.
Saturday evening started with a fabulous toast to our soon-to-be Mrs. Hatch. (Sip, Sip – Hooray!)
Cocktail hour continued with a “How Well Do You Know Each Other” Q&A game, which included quizzing Meredith on answers provided by her fiancé Denison. They did amazing—it’s a hatch-match made in heaven!
We also each brought along a lingerie gift for Meredith and got to share lots of smiles and laughs as she guessed which piece came from which friend.
A bachelorette weekend always includes about 900+ photos and we had no shame in indulging!
But before we knew it, time was flying by and we were being whisked away to downtown Palm Springs for private dinner at Workshop Kitchen + Bar.
This weekend was quarterbacked by Meredith’s fabulous MOH Whit, and we can’t thank her enough for making the trip so special.
The weekend also included lots of support/help from Meredith’s family and besties, including: Kendra, Colleen, Jill, Kristen, Lauren, Nida, Rachel and Sevana!
Bri and Kris were so excited to have been able to share such a special weekend Meredith…
…and cannot wait to watch her walk down the aisle as Mrs. Hatch.
