How to have an Eco-Conscious Bachelorette

Quick Quick, post before we take flight, our first flying trip to the states (we even have american cash, which looks like monopoly money! hehe).

My bachelorette was environmentally conscious... and still pretty darn bachelorette identifiable. This is because I have amazing friends who planned the heck out of the entire thing and thought of everything. I feel so incredibly blessed.

Don't think it's possible? Here's a quick synopsis:

Saturday morning included yoga in the park. Although not specifically bachelorette, it was something I stuck with and was well worth it.

I had made some pretty firm statements about not wanting penis plates, balloons or ridiculous pink sashes so I was very laid back in what I wore- a going out shirt and jeans that I already wore. Good enough. My one goal was to hang out with my fantastic girl friends, not hanging condoms on my shirt.

 doesn't that look amazing??
Those awesome girlfriends had brought a beautiful food spread, all local and from the farmers market. Including grapes, strawberries, cheeses and bread. We drank local wine.

Oh I am so happy... lol
And... in a cute small paper bag tied with ribbon was a beautiful hand made tiara made by my friend Jen (from Funenployment DIY). It was perfect and will function as a really cool necklace (or a crown whenever I feel like wearing one).

 yum yum!
 There were actually TWO plates of fruit rinds left over...
A while later Heather surprised me with these phenomenal, no plastic, shooters. Yep, they were these delicious fruit wedge shooters that she had created. More on how to make these in another co-Heather and Lisa post.

oh man, they should not let me near that cake

Top that with my friends sweet talking a local bakery into making my absolutely favourite cake of all time, the Chocolate Hazelnut Torte from Jane's Next Door (which they actually don't make anymore...). Made from local ingredients this cake is absolutely delicious and only found at Jane's on the Common in Halifax, our favourite local restaurant.

 chillin' out while we waited for the next fantastic maritime-pub song :)
When we were warmed up enough from wine and shooters, we walked down to the Split Crow, a local pub, drank beer and danced (well, jumped up and down) to the local band. 

It was an absolute blast.

I am so lucky and thankful for such wonderful and awesome friends. :)

  1. What a beautiful celebration! Mine was similarly low-key and 100% free of penis paraphernalia. :) Enjoy your trip to the States! Spend lots of that Monopoly money...we've dug ourselves into a terrible hole and really need it right now!

  2. That first photo looks like a still life painting!

    It sounds like you had a lovely time. I can't wait for that recipe :-) (hint hint)

  3. Looks wonderful! Also, I think you're going to be a very beautiful bride, Ms EcoYogini! :)

  4. What a fun looking celebration! Great to see bachelorette/green alternatives.
