Backyard Engagement Party

If your backyard is as beautiful as this bride’s childhood home, then you absolutely must host a garden engagement party! Although the yard was bursting with spring blooms, I think we can all agree there is always room for more flowers. We scattered colorful lounges throughout the yard using greens, yellows and pinks to mimic the existing landscape. The sofas and armchairs created intimate spaces throughout the yard. Places where friends and family could sit and enjoy the celebration. And of course we had to sneak a few bars in to make sure the guests stay hydrated with fun signature cocktails. The trees in the yard provided lots of shade but since one of our bars sat perfectly in the sunshine, we added a few beach umbrellas to keep our bartenders cool.

Gorgeous florals, refreshing cocktails served at custom built bars and shaded by big beach umbrellas, delicious food and beautiful places to sit are all the pieces you need to create the perfect backyard garden party.
