63 | (Bachelorette Party) Weekend Survival Kit

Though a Bachelorette Party Weekend in Santa Barbara may seem exciting enough, LOTUS&ASH added to the anticipation with custom survival kits, sent to each guest before the big weekend.

The pool blue mini suitcases arrived in each guest's mailbox with the essentials for three days at the beautiful Bacara resort.

On tap for Friday night? A reunion for close friends over margaritas... and the potential consequences of such an affair. But Alka Selzer (attached on the back of the card) would be there to save ease the next day...

Saturday was pool day - so SuperGoop Suncreen was a must...

And at night, the girls would convene for a Champagne Toast, written on a custom notecard, for the Bride-to-Be.

Though they had to say goodbye on Sunday, a mini frame lay at the bottom of the mini suitcase, waiting for a photo to remember the weekend by.

And a polite reminder, that of course, their presence was their present.

10 boxes were shipped off across the U.S. from the Palo Alto Post Office (The L&A favorite) and from all accounts, the weekend was a success.


Speaking of Suitcases... I'm off to the birthplace of paper -- China! -- for the week.

(And my suitcase is a little bigger than the ones above...with lots of room for all the paper treasures I hope to find)
