Not long ago, my friend Jackie got engaged to a wonderful man, Kevin. I watched their relationship unfold over Facebook and always had to smile when I saw pictures of the two of them together. The shared look of love and adoration was always there, so it wasn’t surprising that he proposed! I am overjoyed to have been able to put together some engagement party inspiration in their honor.
Starting with this “pop” engagement party invitation, I designed a champagne bar to be featured at the party. Nothing says celebration like champagne! The cheery colors and modern lines set against a white field were the design inspiration point for the bar. Working off a mostly white background, pops of color with tissue tassels, flowers, ribbon, and even the champagne mixers all created a colorful yet clean looking display.
To personalize our party, we had beautifully produced pictures of the happy couple from Shutterfly. I am so in love with the acrylic blocks!
To make your own champagne bar, pick a few champagne cocktail recipes. Mix up everything for the drink except the champagne and put it in a pitcher for guests to portion out and top with champagne themselves. Pieces of cut fruit like raspberries, strawberries, peaches and cherries will make the perfect garnish for all those drinks, and don’t forget to put out some fancy cocktail picks and stirrers! A champagne bar is an interactive feature for a memorable party, and it’s lots of fun for everyone to try a few new things.
