A Black & Gold Engagement

17 Jan

Hi Belles! We have been SO super busy but we’re finally taking a break to share all of the yummy goodness that was one of our very own Belle’s Engagement Party! Beau popped the question at Olivia’s favorite place in the world, Disneyworld, on August 6th and the planning quickly begun!

189437_2301585716480_401908503_n Olivia said YES to beau, she’s said YES to her dress, and we said YES to plan her engagement party! Olivia wanted something with an elegant flair and flowing champagne! As you know, we love flair and we love champagne. Challenge accepted. But what’s a modern day engagement party without a little Pinterest inspiration?

Welcoming the guests was a custom chalkboard platter! This can be reused to write love notes to your fiance! We love multi-use items!

The Bride’s parents hosted this grand affair with almost 100 guests, lots of food, king cake, and of course….A CHAMPAGNE BAR! We’ve done Candy Buffets, we’ve done wine bars, we’ve done sweets tables, and we’ve even seen whiskey bars for the boys. But, when a Belle gets married, it’s time to break out the big guns and make a champagne bar fully equipped with signature cocktails compliments of the Bride & Groom, champagne that never stops flowing, and a Two Belles signature, the Customized Pinwheel Backdrop.

Champagne Bar at a glance! Doesn’t this just have an elegant flair about it that you could just die over? Not to mention the yummy cocktails!

More chalkboard signage! Wouldn’t this be adorb as a wedding countdown sign or photo shoot? *sigh*

Whether it was Champagne on the rocks that you preferred or wanted to try a new cocktail blend, this party had it all!

 For researching purposes only, I tried one of each. “The Blushing Bride” (Peach Schnapps, Champagne & Grenadine), “Black Velvet” (Guiness & Champagne), and of course, Champagne al classico! I know what you’re thinking. Guiness & Champagne? Trust me! I’m not a Guiness drinker and it was amaze! Even had to go on a beer run for the party because it was an instant hit with young, old, girls, and guys alike! You can thank us later!

Here’s another shot of the Champagne bar, drink ingredients, candles to set the mood, and of course our customized pinwhell backdrop!

What Bride & Groom wouldn’t LOVE these?

If you’re not a champagne drinker (let’s be honest. It’s the south and everyone enjoys a good cocktail on a Louisiana Saturday Night!), you could enjoy wine from the wine bar or lots of food prepared by family and friends of the adorable-future-lawyers-couple!

Lots of options for the Wino’s!

Future Mr & Mrs Byers! P.S: Wouldn’t you kill for Olivia’s waistline? If you want Olivia’s waistline, do not eat the products in the following pictures….You have been warned.

In Louisiana on a Saturday in January, no party is complete without KING CAKE and other misc sweets!
