A NYE Engagement Party
Wednesday, January 5, 2011
My little sister got engaged this Christmas and seeing as her new fiance lives across the pond, we decided it was imperative to throw them an engagement party on the fly. Since New Year's Eve seemed oh so fittingly perfect, we spent 2 days running around town getting ready for the surprise fete. A little spray paint, glitter, and cookie dough later we were ready to party. I would say it turned out pretty well as the lovely couple was surprised and New Year's eve was a smash.
For the party we took elements of traditional New Year's Eve decor such as silver and black and added in the cherry blossom as a theme since she loves them. I spray painted branches from the back yard and silk hydrangea flowers from the 99cent store. We also bought several silver vases and floral pieces from Michael's that were on Christmas clearance. My dessert table included these lovely cookies made by my other sister, Guinness cupcakes, and cotton candy sprinkled with black sugar. Our drink of the night was a lychee martini with lychee fruit and black sugar and of course champagne!
