Engagement Party Fun!

As many of you already know, I recently got engaged! My fiance (so weird to say!) Paul and I are just about to start planning for our wedding, but first we decided to have a little family/wedding party meet & greet and engagement party! I wanted to share some special moments from the party and pictures of my decor/dessert table because they were so fun to put together! I've also tagged where to get some of the goodies if y'all are ever in the market for party accessories!

The table setting! 
I was really trying to make this as cost-effective as possible so I used a lot of Amazon.com, Hobby Lobby and Target for decor. The placemats, napkins, and mason jars are from Amazon (12 mason jars for like 8 bucks!). The lace and doilies are from Hobby Lobby. As for the flowers, I just bought a bunch of different bouquets from the grocery store and mixed & matched!

I also put together a little area for guests to write down their addresses in a book for us to send them an invitation to the wedding! I included a frame with pictures of Paul and I from 2007 to now.

Close up look! (Check out my emo hair in 2007 guys woooo!). Yes I know 2015 is missing and that was a Melanie FAIL. =P The point is, we've known each other for quite some time hehe....

My dessert table! This was my favorite part of the entire part because #1 I LOVE DESSERT and #2 I loved putting it together! My future sister-in-law made the yummy Madeleine cookies dipped in white chocolate and I made the cupcakes and decorated them myself! I also made my own heart cupcake toppers using a heart punch from Michaels, cardstock, and toothpicks!

Napkins/Plates/Tins for Candy: Target
Cupcake Stand/Lace Cupcake Holders: Amazon
Tablecloth/Lace Tray: Daiso Japan

Bon Epi in Irvine is one of my two favorite places for Macarons (the other is Honey & Butter)! Flavors I picked included: Salted Caramel, Raspberry, Nutella (NOM), Passion Fruit, & Rose.

This is Paul & I in front of the backdrop I put together! <3

  3. Short but very descriptive post! All those pictures of yummy food are extremely unique and magnificent. I also want to book one of prettiest lofty spaces like this one for my engagement party for making my day even more special.

  4. This is an interesting post. It speaks about the reality we see in this world. My task of writing service has explained clearly about the legal status of a person living in a particular place.Thank you for sharing this post with all of us.
