Two good friends recently took the plunge and said their “I Do’s” at the courthouse. They have plans to throw a big 1-year anniversary bash next Spring. In the meantime, the rest of our circle of friends decided to host a party in their honor. I designed some fun decorations using the theme “Lucky in Love” and highlighting how their personalities are a “winning combination.”
Here’s a glimpse into the design:
The main table featured a “Winning Combination” sign, which was embellished with die-cut images, red sparkles, and a cute photograph of the couple. I love to use several groupings of flowers when creating a tablescape. In this case, a small cluster of purple hydrangeas from my garden were paired with gorgeous red roses.
Another area of the room displayed a “Love Story” sign complete with important dates in the couple’s relationship.
The drink area was dressed up with a tiny bunting that spelled out M-A-R-R-I-E-D!
I saw THIS PIN and knew I had to incorporate the reference to playing cards somehow. Here’s what I came up with:
This dimensional banner graced the front door:
One of the first projects I worked on was creating a guest book activity. The couple of the hour recently bought a house so I wanted the end result to be something attractive they could eventually display in their new home. I was inspired by THIS PIN and started scouting local craft stores for the perfect letters. I eventually settled on these huge letters from Hobby Lobby. After a few coats of white paint and some strategically placed sparkle embellishments, these beauties were ready to go!
Guests used silver and gold Sharpie pens to write their congrats notes.
One of the main attractions of the evening was a DIY photo booth. This activity was SO much fun! A white sheet served as the backdrop. To spruce up their outfits, guests could chose from a variety of hats and accessories stored in a nearby trunk.
If you are looking to make some of your own party props, Pinterest is a great resource! Check out THIS PIN, THIS PIN, and THIS PIN to get started.
Last (but certainly not least!), I created a multiple choice trivia quiz featuring fun facts about the couple. The newlyweds revealed the correct answers later in the evening. This little activity ended up being a great conversation piece.
It was a wonderful night full of beautiful details, delicious food, and great friends.
