The El Caribe recently hosted the engagement party of Angela & Konstantinos. The interiors of the El Caribe were literally transformed by Avenue J Florist. It was an evening with family and friends celebrating with the finest food, drinks and music in a spectacularly themed environment. While there is a range of how couples celebrate their engagement, this was an example of what’s possible at a highly creative level. If you’re looking to create a splash for your engagement, here are three ways to create a memorable engagement party.
1. Themed Decor
As you plan for your engagement party, consider creating a theme that celebrates you and encircles your guests with the joy of your celebration. The theme could be anything from a simple, cozy location to the transformed interiors of a magnificent ballroom. Create something that sets the tone for your future together. For this event the interiors of the Emerald Ballroom seemed to literally disappear as guests entered thru a veiled, draped doorway to experience a unique celebration. From rustic canopy interiors and lounge areas to high-shelf bars and a black & white checkered dance floor, it was a stunning and memorable environment for an engagement party. This theme not only set the tone for guests but the unique and gracious couple who were celebrating their engagement.
2. Signature Drink Station
While signature drinks may seem to be a thing of the past, consider creating variations to for a unique guest experience. You can add a signature drink station at the bar that features particular international drinks not typically found at your standard catering hall bar. These stations might include drink specialties from Ireland, Germany, Russia, or other countries allowing your culture or favorite global location to be featured at the bar. This adds a memorable zest to your celebration.
3. Signature Parting Gifts/Foods
To thank guests for joining in the celebration, Angela & Konstantinos gave parting guests signature cupcakes in a box. This gift, decorated with a logo and message, was a fine touch to the already over-the-top celebration. Further, guests were greeted by a hot dog and pretzel stand as they waited outside for valet parking. What parting gift, or gifts, could you send with guests helping them remember your event and keep you top of mind? Baked goods in a box? A newspaper with your name on it? Hot coffee to go? Donuts? You’re only limited by your imagination.
Create a memorable engagement party for your family and friends. Create a themed event with a signature drink station and special parting gifts to show your love and appreciation to those who came out to celebrate. Doing this strengthens family, friendships and an atmosphere that speaks of your unique celebration.
