We love the idea of celebrating friends or family's upcoming nuptials with an engagement party.
This can be a great time for everyone to meet for the first time in a more casual setting, and share in the joy that is upon the happy couple.
For inspiration in planning the perfect party we looked no further than the bridal shower invitations from Pear Tree Greetings and their "Perfect Pear" invitation.
The gorgeous colors helped inspire the look of our party and the play on words let us get super creative with the food, cocktails, favors and decorations.
Though the invitation we chose incorporates more pinkish hues, we opted to play up a darker shade of lavendar in our color scheme to incorporate our bride's colors. The versatility of this invitation and it's lovely pear design really work so well with customizing the party without losing the foundation it creates for a theme.
We love this theme for a summer or fall party - and it doesn't necessarily have to tie completely into the theme of the wedding. Engagement parties are a precursor, but a more casual celebration of the couple as individuals and a whole.
Even if you're not interested in a pear theme, the ideas and tips here are certain to inspire the look of the party you host as well as add a special charm for a fraction of the cost it would be to order everything custom made!
This idea was sponsored by Pear Tree Greetings.
