- Watch the bubbles as the candy dissolves.
- Bottoms up – This is as delicious as it is simple!
Take a few balloons, fill them with water, tie them at the end and stick them in the freezer until they’re completely hard. Then when your guests come over, you can put the ice-cold balloons in a container of water to keep the party drinks cool.
Wine Glass Bottle
Don’t you just hate constantly having to go and refill your glass? Well with a wine glass bottle you don’t have to. Ok, maybe a little OTT and no one should be seen gulping from the bottle but this is a fun gift for the bride-to-be if she’s partial to the odd glass or three.
Did you know that onions are a natural disinfectant? If you forget to buy wipes for the grill, then just cut an onion in half and use that instead. See, they really do have layers!

Avoid the bachelorette party juggling act (unless you’re planning to move to Vegas as part of the Cique Du Soleil) by picking up a wine glass holder that simply drapes around your neck, leaving your hands free for eating finger-food or waving in the air like you just don’t care.
Looking for the perfect legs for a summery bachelorette dress? Simply shave using conditioner instead of shaving cream, it’s much cheaper and you’ll be left feeling all things smooth and beautiful.
