Engagement Party

This past weekend, I had the honor of helping put together an engagement party for a very sweet friend's nephew. It wasn't supposed to be at her house originally, so when I got the call, we had to put all crafty gears into over drive.
I had her email me a few pictures of things she wanted to see at the party and ran with it.
I'll provide some of the details, but I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking.
This little sign was at the base of the stairs as you walked up to the front porch. It's made of balsa wood. The sign was stained and hand painted with their names and the date of their wedding.

 In the front entrance, there was an heirloom Bible for guests to sign or highlight their favorite verse along with photos of the bride and groom when they were children.
The gift table
Aren't the flower arrangements beautiful? I love hydrangeas and blue mason can never go wrong with either of those:o)
There was additional seating outside.

 Here are the center pieces for the tables. Battery operated votives and tea lights were life savers for this outdoor affair.
This was the drink station. I thought it was pretty lucky that we share the same last initial...The mother of the groom made the little flags for the paper straws. I wish I had taken a closer shot of them. They were adorable. 

I had a lot of helpers in putting this together, and it wouldn't have happened without all of their help. 
I was so grateful to be apart of making this sweet little couple feel extra special and I wish them great joy and happiness in the years ahead!
