Pre - engagement party

Last month was filled with engagements, weddings and graduations. Among other events, I had the privilege of attending a good friend's daughter's two day engagement party. What you see here is a pre-engagement party for a few close friends and family. It was not only grand but also a beautifully choreographed event indeed.

The focal point of the site were these tissue paper garlands, which set the theme for the event. These tissue paper flowers were hand dyed with shades of peach, pink, coral, orange and shades of white.

Gold embroidered linens accented with gold pleated chairs

Beautifully set table with seagreen, gold, and shades of orange
