Last fling Before the Ring, part 2

After a night walking all over the city, the Newport Girls planned a relaxing day. We slept in and didn't have anything scheduled until 2:00, which I learned would be an afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton.
I love tea! But, I loved this tea even more because it wasn't your traditional afternoon tea, instead it was a special tea, which had cupcakes instead of the traditional fair. Each of us had a cupcake flight with five different flavors including:
  • Lemon Tree Cake - Lemon cake and lavendar vanilla cream
  • Basque in the Sun- Basque cake with cream and cherries
  • Devil Made Me Do It- Devils Food cake and icing
  • Remember Me?- Pineapple upside down cake
  • Peaches and Cream- Almond cake, lemon time peaches, marscapone

They also had an amazing selection of teas with so many fun flavors like Pear Caramel, Masala Chocolate Truffle, Vanilla Bean, Verbena Mint Chrysanthemum and so many more. I was boring and got my usual organic breakfast. If I'm being really crazy, sometimes I'll go for Earl Gray.Newport Mom was babysitting for the weekend, but we wanted to include her in the fun, so we stopped by to see her and Little Newport on the common.

Little Starfish is walking and ready for her big role as show stealer in the wedding. I think she's the most adorable thing in the world.
After tea and some time on the common, it was time to head back to the room and nap. Friday was supposed to be low key, but after staying at the RattleSnake until close the night before, we knew we needed to get some more rest before night 2. So after a quick nap, it was time to get ready.

The Newport Girls had pizza delivered from the UpperCrust, a favorite local pizza chain in the Boston area. I was so excited for a slice of Buffalo chicken and one of Bacon before heading out. After food and prepping, the Newport Girls hung out for a bit in our hotel room at the Copley Westin. Then it was time to start our night.Stop 1: Top of the Hub- a super nice restraunt in Boston.
I had never been and was so excited. The Top of the Hub has amazing views of the Boston sky line. I should have taken a pciture, but was having too much fun to think about it!
We had cocktails and calamari. Then it was off to Dance! I hoped dancing would be involved and the Newport Girls didn't disappoint. They took me to the Estate, which is where they also hosted our engagement party last year.There was lots of dancing! My feet hurt for the next two days from the mix of dancing and heels, but it was completely worth it! At the end of the night, we tried to hail a cab, but a party bus offered to take us home for $5 each. It was another surprise ending to the night, but so fun!

The weekend was so incredible and has me so excited for the wedding weekend. I appreciate every detail that went into this weekend. They included so many of my favorite things....friends, family (a few cousins met us out on night 2!), chocolate, pedi cabs, nautical details, matching shirts, scrapbooking, dancing, a piano bar, cupcakes, diy projects, tea and more! I've never felt so spoiled in my life. The Starfish Girls planned an amazing weekend. Their coming up early for the wedding, so I'm looking forward to our next weekend of fun together!

Did you girls plan a whole weekend of fun? Did they incorporate any of your favorite things at your bachelorette?
