Classy decorating ideas for your Vintage Lace Engagement Party
Choose a style and theme that are completely different from your wedding day. The real trick here is that you don't want to upstage the wedding day. Use small flower arrangements on the tables. Get colourful fabric for the tables and food areas and work with your theme.
Bunting and balloons
Balloons are a versatile decorating tool. Inexpensive and fun, they can be used formally or informally. Try tying bunches of balloons to the gate or porch of the engagement party venue (usually someone's home). You can create a beautiful balloon arch for the newly engaged couple to walk through when they enter the party. Hang our beautiful Vintage Lace Bunting announcing the engagement, or one that simply states, "Congratulations!"
Timeline or collage
A fun decoration to display at an engagement party is a photo collage or timeline that incorporates photos of the couple. Timelines can be used to compare the lives of the two lovers (they are particularly funny when there is a large age gap). Collages are a bit easier to design, because you don't have to figure out specific dates. Use photos or copies of photos, scrapbooking templates, stickers, markers and other artistic tools to create your timeline or collage. Hang it on a large wall, inside or outside.
Touches of romance
No engagement party is complete without small touches of romance. Buy balloons in the shape of hearts. Set candles around everywhere. Strings of white fairy lights wrapped around trees add a romantic touch as well as wired lanterns, paper balls and tissue paper pom poms. Fresh roses in vases are very romantic and will fill your venue with a luscious scent. Choose flowers, balloons and other decorations in the colours of the upcoming wedding.
- To add a small touch of pink , decorate the glasses by tying a pink ribbon around the stems and attaching the Vintage Lace Glass Decorations
- Use the Vintage Lace Photo Booth Kit to take memorable photos. Photo booths are fun and guests love it.
How well do you know your partner? Here is a few game ideas for the engaged couple as well as the guests
Toasts to the Couple
Reserve part of the night to pop open a few bottles of champagne and open up the floor to any guests who want to make a toast to the couple, congratulate them, wish them well or tell a special story about them.
Almost Newly-wed Game
Create questions similar to the television show the Newly-wed Game. The questions should give everyone an idea of how well the couple knows each other, such as past events in their relationship or personal characteristics of the couple. Choose two other couples to play against the engaged couple. Give each person a dry erase board. Send the men out of the room while asking the women the first set of questions. The women should write their answers on the dry erase board. Have the men return to the room to answer the same questions. Each couple earns points when they match an answer. Repeat the process, this time sending the women out of the room and asking the men questions.
Print the names of the engaged couple at the top of the game sheet. Use first and last names of the couple if they have short first names. Supply each guest with a game sheet. Give the guests a set amount of time to create as many words as possible from the letters in the names of the couple. Award a prize to the person with the most words. You can also award prizes for the most unique word or the longest word.
True or False
Ask the couple to share a story about themselves. The story can either be true or false. The key is to make it believable. The guests must decide if the story is true or false. Stories could revolve around how the couple met, how they became engaged, their plans for the wedding or their plans for their future life together. Repeat with more stories as time permits.
Couple's Game Show
Write questions on slips of paper and take turns asking the bride and groom for the answers. The questions for the bride will be about the groom and vice versa. Assign a scorekeeper and get guests to cheer on the bride and groom. Borrow a rule from "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" and give the bride and groom chances, or "lifelines," to get help with a question. They can have two of four answer choices taken away, ask one of the party members for help with the question or "phone a friend."
Come up with 10 questions (five for the groom and five for the bride), and print them on card stock. Distribute to all the guests and have them answer the questions. Make sure everyone writes his or her name on the card. Collect the cards and then get the answers from the couple. The guest with the most correct answers wins a prize.
