An Engagement Party with Holiday Cheer

There is something about the Holidays that brings forth a lot of engagements!  If a loved one gets engaged over the Holidays, host an engagement party that is full of Holiday cheer!

This invitation from Tiny Prints is perfect for the occasion…..I love that you could go two different ways with it.  1) A partridge in a pear tree…..very Christmas!  2) The perfect pear (pair)….the perfect theme for an engagement party.  The invitation sets a beautiful color palette of chartreuse green and brown, which just happens to be one of my favorite Holiday combinations.

Keep your table simple and sophisticated with white dishes and brown napkins (dressed up with a little chartreuse ribbon).  For a centerpiece idea, I love the idea of a low white vase full of green moss.  Scatter in a few bud vases of white orchids, some brown and white stripe placecards, and some beautiful stemware….and you have yourself a gorgeous table!

Since it is the Holidays…and this is an engagement party celebrating love….mistletoe is an absolute must!  Instead of hanging a traditional ball, try dressing up your display by tying some mistletoe to a beautiful ornament and hanging it from some ribbon.
