Gorgeous Gold-Themed Engagement Party with DIY Details

If you are throwing an engagement party, we have a wonderful gold themed engagement party dreamed up by the talented Chris Nease to inspire you, and dazzle your guests!

An engagement party is a wonderful event that celebrates the excitement and joy of two people coming together. The best engagement parties are elegant, tasteful, and let love take center stage.

If you are throwing an engagement party this season, we have a wonderful gold themed engagement party dreamed up by the talented Chris Nease . She has tips and décor ideas that will leave your guests stunned and won’t create too much for work for you the host. Sit back with your glass of champagne (hey, someone has to be the taste-tester!) and check out these wonderful gold engagement party ideas.

  • Gold Table Setting

    Set the table for your gold engagement party in style by using monochromatic accents all in the family of gold, nude, and white. The simplicity of the color scheme will help create a whimsical but not overwhelming décor for your tabletop.

  • Coconut Cake

    Choosing the type of cake to serve at your gold engagement party is fun because there is so much to think about... Color? Flavor? Décor? Try this delicious coconut cake with a wonderful coconut frosting layer as a beautiful white centerpiece to your ethereal gold table setting!

  • Gold Themed Refreshment Table

    If you’ve ever wondered what the most highly trafficked spot at any party would be, look no further than the crowd by the refreshment table. Be sure to make yours stunning. From DIY drinks to delicious cake, this Gold Themed Refreshment Table is not only beautiful but quite easy to set up!

  • Small Highlights for a Big Impact

    Hang a simple yet elegant "bar" banner to dress up the refreshment. Such a simple idea that looks so chic when hung within a frame. You can certainly repurpose this bar banner for future parties as well - keep it gold and glamorous or use spray paint to match your theme!

  • DIY Centerpiece and Setting

    A beautiful centerpiece can be the stand-out conversation starter that will get everyone gabbing. Well, that and the champagne of course! We love this beautiful gold cake-topper that Chris shows you how to create. It’s simplicity won’t overwhelm the table setting, and the fact that your yummy cake doubles as part of the centerpiece just means less work for you!

  • Gold Bottles in your Centerpiece

    Throwing an engagement party at night? We love the look of these gold repurposed liquor bottles that were coated in acrylic paint in our Celebrations craft room! You could even harken back to the scandalous days of the Prohibition era for a different take on the gold theme. These gold bottles really stood out by being accented with white roses and low candles.
