Chavis Engagement Party!

Weddings, Weddings, Weddings!!  The weekend came and went in a blink of an eye! Last week I was writing about preparing for an Engagement party for friends of ours. Well, It couldn't have turned out better. All week I had my fingers literally glued together. I had so much fun. I follow the foot steps of my mother everyday, which If I had to choose which quality to be handed down from her, it would be her craftiness! She's brilliant when it comes to creating crafty things. Starting on Tuesday, I had four days to come up with something that told Brycelyn & Jerermy's Love Story. I think this is very important. That being said, I made SEVEN different Hobby Lobby trips in Four days. I bought a poster board that had three sections. Starting on the left, had their story. The Middle stated their name, a photo, and a Quote. [my favorite], and ending on the right side had random facts about them.

The party had a beachy theme like look to it. Bryce & JC LOVE the water! So,  with help of my mother, We put together the dinner beachy table centerpieces. Greenery [seaweed-like] was placed on the bottom. Then a round cirlce mirror top, Net was then placed on top, finished with a glass bowl filled with tan & navy blue sand... SEA Shells were then placed inside the bowl.

 They were a great turn out. Another thing I created, which was my favorite, was the guest book. I completely made it from beginning to start. Rather than just everyday guest book where people sign there names because they see the book and pen, and then feel that they have too... I made a book where the guest gave their advice. Every page was different. Ex: How do you know the Bride & Groom? Or, Something Jeremy should NEVER say to Brycelyn? Or Words of Wisdom. Something Brycelyn should know about Jeremy?
This was a lot of fun. The last four pages, I did make where people could just sign.. and as I looked through it as the night passed, I noticed people were being boring and skipping the fun stuff. So, I announced for people to please share experiences/quotes/advice with Brycelyn & Jeremy. By the end of the night, we had some HILARIOUS stuff. My favorite was under the "Marriage Advice" page; Fight Naked, It solves arguements faster! - Oh, I gotta kick out of it. But, as for the party itself.. Me & Mrs. Janet couldn't have asked for a happier turn out! The first hour was a bit of mingling, then once everyone had arrived, I started with a toast. Yes, I got up and told a story about the two, and when I was finished Christoper, Jerermy's oldest brother, poped the Champagne Bottle, Said Cheers, and then Mr. Lee Benson, Jeremy's Granddaddy said Grace.

Ate the delicious dinner Mrs. Janet prepared with a little help from others, mingled more... and that's when the party started. A LOT of dancing.

We had a WONDERFUL turn out, and most importantly, Brycelyn & Jeremy seemed very happy and felt on top of the world.

What a charming engagement party décor! Wedding planning is really a tough job. Although we have many beautiful locations near our place. But want to have a destination wedding for my sister. Asked my known about the reviews of Chicago wedding venues and that too sea located ones. Got positive response from her about their budget too.
