With summertime comes party planning. Whether it be a graduation party, a bridal shower, birthday party, or in my case an engagement party, there are so many ways in which you can create your own beautiful decor without breaking the bank. Just recently I threw an engagement party for my sister. I am going to take you through a tour of some of the decor that I created. First things first, my number one party planning tip: always have mason jars on hand. 😉 I only say this because it’s amazing how easily you can create adorable party decor with mason jars!
Here are some examples…
These hanging mason jars were lining the sidewalk to the entrance of the party. I simply tied a bow around the top, placed some crystal-looking beads in the jars, and hung them off of small shepherd hooks. When it got dark out, I placed some battery operated tea lights inside of them in order to light up the walk way a bit. These were super easy to make and looked adorable!
FYI: I found the crystals and hanging lids for the mason jars at Michaels.
Now to my favorite part of the party decor, the mimosa bar! These are a hit at parties and they are so easy to set up. All you need is a table, juice pitchers, champagne glasses (I used plastic ones this time), an ice bucket, some fruit, and of course the champagne. I even found the cutest chalk board sign at HomeGoods to go along with the set up. However, you could always create your mimosa bar sign as well. There are a lot of great printables available on Etsy if you are ever looking. Just search “mimosa bar sign”.
For the food tables, an easy way to make the tables look nice is to add some nicely framed photography…
I was very pleased with how this piece turned out as well. I bought this large champagne shaped glass from Micheals. However, you could really do this with any large glass container. I simply placed some crystals and pearls inside and filled it with water. I then cut the stems off of a half dozen of pink roses and placed them in to the water. The flowers looked so lovely floating at the top. This piece turned out beautifully and it was very simple to create!
