Engagement party decor

dscf0671

We were asked to help decorate a fun and beautiful, but not too expensive, engagement party recently. After trawling through thousands of Pinterest images we came up with this selection of ideas, giving a rustic country theme to the event.

With a typically dull rainy British day we had to tweak a few of these ideas, and ditch some last minute, but overall we thought we did a good job. The guests certainly seemed to have fun!

Decorations

Flowers – For this event we wanted white, bright and fun flowers so small arrangements of baby’s breath and big daisy like flowers in lace detailed jars was the way to go. We made around 12 of these and scattered them around the main rooms of the party.

Photo Wall – With the simple use of string and tiny pegs we created this photo and engagement card wall. Bringing a ton of memories to the event and adding a splash of colour.

Desert Table – Again adding a splash of colour our deserts table was a popular part of the event. The cute ‘Tying the Knot’ napkins were an especially cute touch.

Vodka Station! – We had a range of different flavoured vodka (Still in the freezer when this was taken) which needed to be included in the party. So instead of a ‘Pimp your prosecco’ we made a vodka shot station. It went down a little too well for some people!

With not only a wedding but baby on the way too we had to include the little man in the party some how. So we had a “Date of birth betting” (Written in Polish and English) and a baby name suggestions pot. At the end of the night the names were read out with the favourites picked out from the many suggestions.

And of course we included a hung Photo Booth with props for a little record making fun.

The happy family!

 We enjoyed making the decorations and putting it all together with the bride to be and overall the event was a success!

Congratulations Ben and Kasia! x
