Purses and Bags and Totes, oh my!

If you are planning a bachelorette party or birthday party or.. well, any get together where women are involved, you can bet that a “purse” theme would go over BIG!  I’ve got some fun and fab ideas that all include purses in one way or another!

First, from one of our recent customers, we received this fabulous photo of our Cork Purse Centerpiece.  They used these at a bachelorette party, and our customer’s note said, “Over 100 guests (all women) admired the purse cork cages!”

 

From Parenting.com, an adorable how to make a Purse Cake tutorial that could also be “glammed” up, with rhinestones, edible glitter, and more.  The flowers are made by cutting marshmallows up, the zipper are M & Ms, and the handle is a Tootsie Roll.  So clever!

From Hand Stamped by Lacey, some adorable purse party favors, with some ideas and suggestions on how she made them:

From Expressions by Devin, a cute variation of cupcake toppers – PURSES on top of the cupcake:

And not toot our own horn (again) or anything, but you really MUST check out all the favors in the Diva Entertains Purse Favors section.

Tuesday Trends – Purse Parties

Last week, we talked a little bit about GLAM SHOES… so THIS week, it just seemed appropriate to continue the discussion, but this time with PURSES.

In case you hadn’t considered a purse theme party,  I have some fab links for you to help get you started!

Check out this wonderful tutorial on how to make a purse cake, from CakeJournal.com.  This is actually quite easy if you purchase fondant.  It is sold in the baking aisle of large craft stores and bakeries often are willing to sell you fondant too.  Also – marshmallow fondant is easy to make and easy to work with.  And delicious!:

 

If cupcakes are more your style… look at these “fashionably chic”  purse cupcakes! The “how-to” for these cupcakes can be found in the Cupcakes, Cookies and Pie, Oh, My book by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson.

Of course, if designing an entire purse cupcake might be too much, you can always make fondant purse cupcake toppers.  The Wilton site shows a quick and easy way to make adorable fondant purses, which you can make in any color you desire!

Now, how about centerpieces?  We have this lovely purse centerpiece in the Diva Entertains shop:

And check out this tutorial, from styrofoamcrafts.com… a pink posy purse centerpiece:

Finally, you can’t forget favors!  We have an entire section devoted to purse party favors in the DE shop. Manicure sets, favor bags, and even Oreo cookies!

Corissa, Emily and Valerie sent in this picture from their purse party featuring our “Little Black Purse” manicure sets and gorgeous Big Buddah purses – thank you so much, Big Buddah, for generously providing them.
