I have been nominated to help the host that is throwing our friends engagement party. Basically she is super busy running her own company wants to throw them a blow out engagement party. I am going to try my hand at planning weddings but I thought helping her with this (basically me doing it myself) will help with experience and pics for my portfolio and website.
The budget is going to allow me to host a nice engagement party. I am just trying to think of some ideas to throw around and see if she likes any of them.
I kind of want to do something swanky but not go over the top.
Did anyone have a really cool engagement party?
Also there will be about 60-70 people there.

I always thought a “rat pack” 50’s-60’s theme would be really cool and fun. Make it really glam. Black and White with maybe a touch of color. Black and white photos of future bride and groom dressed up. Ostrich feather centerpieces…Frank Sinatra and Humphrey Bogart playing in the background…

How about a casino night with fake money? Or an Arabian Nights Theme with open tents, flowing fabric, and under each tent/canopy you have a different food station? Great gatsby night? Halloween is also great! Let us know wha tyou decide.
