Our Engagement Party

On Sunday, Joe's parents hosted our engagement party. We had to rush to throw the party together as I'm leaving this weekend for New York! 

We opted for a simple potluck bbq. I can do a video on how we planned the party if anyone is interested. The party was absolutely lovely and the party ended up lasting nearly twice as long as we had planned! 

I wanted to share a few photos from the event. 

Joe's mom purchased several bouquets of pink flowers and created homemade arrangements on all the tables. 

With the hot summer weather, we served dinner outside. Our colors are tentatively blush and champagne so Joe's mom got a dozen balloons that were placed at each table. 

We had a separate table for the bar and served wine, beer, prosecco, and sparkling lemonade. 

Our guests were kind enough to each bring something to share. One guest brought amazing blueberry goat cheese and garlic & herb goat cheese [both from Trader Joe's!] along with crackers. Another guest made tomato, basil, and mozzarella skewers! 

We went for cute desserts for this occasion. I made brownie kebabs with brownie bites and farmer's market strawberries. We also picked up some mini cupcakes [always a good idea] and used these cute labels on both desserts. 

This dessert was definitely Pinterest inspired. I love s'mores at bbqs and went for this little S'mores Station. I used a small chalkboard from the Target Dollar Spot for signage. We found this clear tray at the Dollar Tree to separate the s'mores components. 

We felt so fortunate to have so many friends join us to celebrate our engagement. I am especially appreciative of Joe's parents for making this party happen.
