Finding The Perfect Theme for your Engagement Party
Deciding on an engagement party theme is the first step in having a fabulous
Think about what you love to do, your lifestyle, who you are as a couple, how
you met, fell in love, or how he proposed,
and use one or more of those elements to create your theme.
Did you get engaged or first meet in Vegas? If so consider a Casino Night. Did
you first fall in love in Mexico? Try a Fiesta party. Love to watch movies
together? Turn that into a Hollywood party theme. When you see the color Tiffany
Blue does it scream romance for you? Then use the color as your party theme.
The point is your party theme can be just about anything but in order to make it
personal you need to make it relevant to the two of you. It can be based on a color scheme, a country, movie, novel,
the types of people you are, or anything else you
can think of.
Themed Engagement Parties: It's all in the Details
From your invitations to your food, beverages and decorations—they all need to work with your theme,
no matter what it is.
Having a casual backyard barbecue? Turn it into an outdoor theme by thinking
up some clever ways of using your backyard as a stage and elements from within
it as part of your decor.
First, the invitations because they set the tone for the party. They're also the first impression
your guests will have about your event so try to make them as special as the party
itself. Like this fabulous simple daisy with a tag party invitation (you
can use a flower from your backyard or a florist).
You don't need a big budget to make your theme a success, you just need a
little imagination. Bring some elements from inside your house outside to set up
a bar along the wall or simply to make a visually interesting display.
For centerpieces look around your house and yard...basic votive candles, burlap, moss, and succulents from your garden can turn
into a striking display.
Mix and match whatever you'd like. It'll all work together if they're
connected through a theme.
