It’s so lovely seeing our happy couples and our work for their beautiful weddings, but there is something extra special about seeing your very own wedding celebration – so I am very pleased to share that my own engagement party was featured yesterday on the ever-so-fabulous Style Me Pretty blog!

For our engagement party, we hosted an intimate gathering in our home and backyard. Beth Helmstetter designed it all {of course!} using cool lounge furniture, comfy blankets, and chic lanterns to create a romantic setting that was elegant yet comfortable.

For the printed materials we used gold, silver and black sticking to a “metallics” palette. We made pieces for the heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet, self-serve champagne bar, the s’mores set-up by the BBQ and the dessert bar ~ everything was so delicious!


We also had galvanized buckets of beers out by the lounge for guests to enjoy!

Small signs like these are a fun and easy way to spruce up your party decor and add an extra special touch!

Thank you to Beth Helmstetter for her elegant design and Steve Steinhardt for capturing the evening so beautifully ~ I am one lucky lady…for this fab party and for my wonderful fiance!
