Remember the traditional Nigerian wedding for my friends Aaron and Gloria I attended in August? We celebrated the bride’s birthday and bachelorette festivities last weekend! It was a weekend full of activities, including a Segway tour around downtown Austin, a quick romp at the HOPE Outdoor Gallery, pampering at a nail salon, dancing and lots of food! I hosted the last hurrah on Sunday to close out the weekend – a floral-themed bachelorette brunch – at my place.
The décor was simple, affordable and easy to make. Oversized tissue flowers on the wall and white spray painted vases with big, fake blooms carried the floral theme.
For food, I made a homemade frittata with eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, sausage, and shredded cheese. I make this without a recipe! I mix together the ingredients, season the mixture, and put it in a dish. Then I beat together eggs (I used six here) and pour it over the everything.
I also made Pioneer Woman’s Breakfast Potatoes. Trying to follow my own advice of not over-extending myself when it comes to preparation, I also popped open Pillsbury’s biscuits and cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing, two favorites I grew up eating. Both take at most 20 minutes to prepare.
It was a fun weekend with lovely ladies!
One of my goals this year is to throw 12 celebrations. This is #11 of 12. These are big and small parties for any occasion with the goal of planning and executing something fun. See all the celebrations here.
