Engagement Season Prep

Football season, Pumpkin Latte Season, Fall Season but Engagement Season? Is that a thing?? Great question, and Engagement Season is most certainly a reality!! Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day there seems to be a rush of proposals. WeddingWire.com estimates that approximately one in three of all engagements take place during this time frame. At Touch of Elegance we want you to be ready to drop to one knee, so we put together a list of some of the most awe inspiring proposals on the net; cause let’s be honest you are going to be telling this story for YEARS.  LET’S MAKE IT FABULOUS!!!!!

1. Over a Cup of Coffee

We love the idea of a surprise attack!! Sip a morning coffee with your loved one and when they finish it off they will be blown away, and most importantly fully alert to answer “YES!!”

2. Between the Pages of Their Favorite Book

We are obsessed with proposals that sneak up on you!! Opening your book to do some reading and finding a beautiful ring is definitely most unexpected. Bonus points for a romantic book or for highlighting letters to spell out “WILL YOU MARRY ME.”

3. A Cute Puppy is Hard to Say No To!

Who could possibly say no to that adorable face?! Using your puppy to help with the proposal is a great way to get the whole gang involved.

4. Photo Booth “I DO”

Getting your proposal on camera is always a plus!! A photo booth is a great way to show the progression of the proposal. Your significant other will not be expecting it!

5. Spell it out with a magical Hot Air Balloon

Have your special someone look to the sky for the big proposal. This engagement idea has such a big wow factor that no one will be able to resist saying YES!!

Garden Inspired Parties

In light of Earth Day approaching, I thought I would share some garden inspired party ideas.

From small dinner gatherings to large weddings, an outdoor plant infused decor element is as simply chic and refreshing as they come.

Rather than the usual banquet hall or restaurant, an outdoor event allows for personality to shine through and invites your guests to enjoy something out of the norm.

For decor, simple table settings are perfect.  The green background of a yard or a field already adds such a perfect landscape that keeping it minimal is just what you need.

Decorations around your venue or space can become as creative as you’d like.  Including things like plants and vegetables really adds lots of color and unique flair.

Keeping with the theme of the “outdoors”  giving goodies such as potted plants to your guests is a great idea that will allow them to remember their experience for a long time

When it comes to food, you want to keep it very simple and grab-friendly.  Since this is an outdoor event, chances are your guests will want to walk around and mingle.  Providing foods that will require bowls or large plates may not be the best idea.  Keep it simple with mini appetizers such as quiches, mini sandwiches or sliders so that your guests can grab them and continue their movement.

For drinks, providing custom drinks to go with the decor, keeping with color scheme or coming up with names is a fun idea for your guests to enjoy.

Outdoor events can be so much fun and can be as simple or as elaborate as you’d like.

As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or to plan your Garden Inspired Event!
