Yesterday we announced our big news.  In case you missed it, we were recently hired by Universal Studios to design and style an Exclusive Girls Night In Printable Party Set Offer for the launch of Bridesmaids {the movie} Blu-Ray and DVD at Target! {Have you seen the movie? HILARIOUS!}

Target stores will be launching the Bridesmaids Blu-Ray and DVDs on 9.20.11.  Bridesmaids movies will have an exclusive offer from both Anders Ruff and e.l.f. Cosmetics.  A Bridesmaids themed downloadable Parisian Printable Party Decor Set from Anders Ruff and great make-up offers from e.l.f  Cosmetics are the perfect way to plan your own Girls Night In.

We styled all of the necessary components to put together a perfect Girls Night In Party.  The theme was Parisian Inspired based off of the classic bridal shower scene from the movie.  Are you ready for the highlights?

We are starting with the Dessert Table. We couldn’t take this shot without the iconic puppies. (If you have seen the movie, you know what we are talking about!)  A fabulous local breeder (Seasons Gold) brought in these puppies for us and we were smitten!

Target Bridesmaids Girls Night In PhotoshootButterflies were a motif we used throughout the printable party decor and set and were inspired from the invitation scene in the movie.   A recent trip to two of our favorite stores (Anthropologie and Neiman Marcus) gave us the inspiration for the butterfly backdrop.

Since the Target Bridesmaids promotion also includes offers from e.l.f. Cosmetics, we designed a party flag to wrap around the lip gloss and use as a party favor.  We displayed them in a “sweet” manner on the dessert table.

Everyone needs popcorn at a movie watching girls night in, right?  We added interest by displaying the popcorn in a printable patterned paper cone.

Target Bridesmaids Girls Night In Photoshoot 3The main living room was filled with products from Target, of course!  Fabulous pillows were shown throughout to make it a “cozy” seating area. Polka Dot Market products were shown throughout and made the perfect impact in all of the right places!

We staged a mini bar for refreshments and cocktails during the party.

While you are in Target picking up your own Bridesmaids DVD or Blu-Ray on 9.20.11, head to the home decor aisle to stock up on fabulous accessories!  REALLY stylish stuff!

Target Bridesmaids Girls Night In PhotoshootEvery girls night in ends up in the kitchen for late night snacks, right?   We had to have a “Cake Baby” tribute with the signature carrot cake and other baked goodies.  Mandie, of Got What It Cakes, baked up the perfect sweets for the occasion!

Target Bridesmaids Girls Night In Photoshoot 6We had so much fun at this photoshoot!  I am enjoying a heart shaped cookies (from the talented Firefly Confections) in the kitchen while Adria whips up some appetizers.

Like the hanging butterflies?

Target Bridesmaids Girls Night In Photoshoot 7Our girlfriend, Nicole, also enjoyed the fabulous cookies from Firefly Confections and macaroons from Sparkles Kitchen that were displayed on a black tray we purchased at Target.

Target Bridesmaids Girls Night In Photoshoot 8Caryn and Becky, our wonderful Design Editors, came along to enjoy the party.  We had a blast! Do you love the “Lips” straw toppers? Those are part of the printable party set that will be included with all of the Bridesmaids DVD and Blue-Rays that will be sold at Target.
