He Asked She Said Yes!
A beautiful rustic country engagement dinner party to celebrate "he asked and she said yes"!
Autumn is my favorite time of year and the perfect time to celebrate an engagement party, especially if you love a country rustic theme!
To keep everything bright and cheerful we went all out with a sunshine yellow theme.
Instead of traditional favors I created a farmers market table. Baskets filled with miniature mason jars with an assortment of homemade marmalade, candy and local honey; all in keeping with our yellow theme! Guests had so much fun going through the baskets picking out what they wanted!
LOL there was nothing left!!
With a small space to work with we were able to fit 22 people with room to spare! Adding white silk chair covers and large white flowers gave the party elegance and the wow factor to the room!
It never ceases to amaze me how guests go crazy over a little plastic ring! Every engagement party I create I suggest these! So much fun, these faux diamond rings cost pennies and add fun to a cupcake! Honestly even the men join in the fun! Too funny!
Remember to use a variety of texture and pattern when having a rustic theme. From baskets, hay bales, pumpkins and leaves to vintage wine bottles and glass, look first to what you have around you before you purchase.
No party is complete without something memorable. Rather than make a cake I decided to go with engagement ring cookies!
Each bag held a decorated silver diamond ring with two miniature heart cookies. Truly so much fun to make!
Picking a party theme can be as easy as choosing a color - so remember do not fret if you do not have a "theme"just pick your favorite color or your favorite dish and plan your entire party around that! You will be amazed how quickly you will find more and more items that will fall into place to carry out your party design.
