This fun and rustic engagement party can be thrown during the day or in the evening.
Decorations: The beach, a winery, a barn, or your backyard would be the perfect backdrop for this boardwalk themed party. I envision rustic wood tables with steel chairs (Cost Plus World Market). A DIY sequin photo backdrop is perfect for taking photos of your guests (you could even have them write words of advice on the back of each photo or digital instagram for keepsakes (also a great way to remember who attended, rather than the traditional guestbook). This diamond shaped piñata is fun for added decoration or as an activity for the kids that may be attending. Floral centerpieces are made from wildflowers that are arranged in old wooden crates.
Cocktails: For that added lightbulb look, these champagne floats with drops of ice cream are the perfect touch for dessert (instead of cake). Raspberry and champagne cocktails are another option that are color coordinated with the invite.
