While in the States, I got to join in on a fun bachelorette evening for my sweet sister-in-law Suzanne.
The night was planned by her sister Deirdre, who was getting married a short three weeks later… so I offered to help by taking care of snacks / favors by ordering again from Annie’s Custom Cookies.
She did a great job of incorporating various elements of the evening: ice cream from an outing to local farm and ice cream powerhouse Rota-Spring, lingerie as it was a bachelorette, and dresses and champagne as the wedding was just two short days away — all in her wedding colors.
Rota-Spring Farm is just the kind of place you would NEVER find in Asia. You can actually see the cows that made the milk for your ice cream.
The ice cream is so good I think it would be worth the drive out from Boston.
And they had baby goats!
My nephew / godson not surprisingly LOVED them, even to the point where he wasn’t even interested in ice cream.
By the way, as an aside, the NorthEasterners have a lock-down on ice cream in my humble opinion. I mean how much better is Ben&Jerry’s than Haagen-Dazs? So much better.
The little goats could not have been more adorable.
Looking forward to visiting this American institution again!
Back at the house, the bride-to-be had to guess which marriage advice was from whom… we all wrote out some marital wisdom on the back of pretty hearts on sticks, which combined to form a pretty bouquet. A shower / bachelorette idea worth remembering!
And then we had fun eating buns!
