Engagement party Decoration Ideas

Top 10 Engagement Party Decoration ideas

7I was recently asked if I had any ideas for decorations for an engagement party, and the answer is yes, I have lots! Without bombarding you with all my favourite party planning ideas and tips I have included a few of my favourites that are sure to get you started.

Planning a party is a lot of work, but for me the best fun is the preparation because it’s a time to let your creative side and party planning skills out.

Here are my top 10 Engagement Party decoration ideas:

1. Fairylights - If you have a big space and are not sure how to fill it, fairylights are the quickest and easiest way to add a bit of sparkle to your venue and I think they are the most romantic piece you can add (just think, all the romance movies have a scene under the stars or amongst fairylights… it creates that dream setting).

2. Paper Lanterns - These can be with or without candles/lights in them. If you’re having a party at night these add an extra dimension to the fairylights. If you’re having your event during the day they are also perfect instead of fairylights. Available in a wide variety of colours you can match them to your theme colours or go for an all white look which is very elegant and definitely says ‘wedding’. Tie them to string and hang them along a fence, between trees or from market umbrella to market umbrella and voi-la, an instant party backdrop!

3. Flowers – Flowers can be a fairly large part of a wedding budget, but don’t let this scare you off from using them at your next event or engagement party. There are plenty of flowers at the cheaper end that still looks beautiful – ask your local florist to give you some guidance and look for flowers that easily fill a space. You can then spend a little bit more on some bolder bigger flowers to make the arrangements pop, or use coloured vases or vintage silver tea pots to give the more simple looking flowers a beautiful home. Once you’re done choosing your flowers and arranging them in vases place them around your venue and accompany them with small candles to help them glow into the night.

4. Bunting/Garlands – These are one of my favourite party planning ideas because I love creating them in the days leading up to the day and they are a very easy way to add colour and decoration to your event. A simple search on the internet will bring up plenty of ‘how to’ guides for making your own (in most cases you’ll need a sewing machine), or if you don’t have the materials to make them yourself head to Etsy where plenty of very creative individuals have done the hard work for you and made them available for purchase with easy and quick delivery.

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
