Surprise parties are always so much fun not only to throw but the planning process alone makes it fun. There are times where the planning process can be stressful though because let’s face it, we are trying to keep a secret. Why not hire a pro to do all the planning so that even you are surprised in the end? Desirable Events by Desi can plan any surprise event you desire. If you want to go the old fashion way and do it yourself please see the information below on this surprise engagement party Desirable Events by Desi put together on a budget.
Natalie and Marc were engaged in August and immediately began the planning process for their wedding. Natalie’s mother was coming out to Vegas in September so naturally we chose to throw the party when she was in town.
Food and Beverage:
The invites were actually private through social media (Facebook). Each guest was asked to bring a bottle of wine to the event as well as a food item. Desirable Events by Desi also provided homemade Sangria. Any leftover bottles of wine was meant for the couple to take to “Stock their Bar”. There were about 30 guests that arrived and with plenty of wine left over the couple sure did have a stocked bar. Desirable Events also set up favors of ring pops for all the guests.
Desirable Events by Desi made the banners, vases, and decor for the event. We chose a wine theme as the couple loves wine so much. There were banners that said, “She said Yes”, “Marc put a ring on it”, Cheers, as well as photos of the couple. We made a cupcake stand out of a vase filled with wine corks and plate to top it. We also made centerpieces such as vases filled with wine corks and mason jars with burlap and flowers. We even added more of the wine touch by having wine bottles with flowers in them as well. For the food we made cards that said “She said Yes” and put them in wine cork placeholders. Each guest had their own wine glass with their names on the tag that read this wine is mine. Natalie and Marc drank out of bride and groom wine glasses. All of these items are available on etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/DesirableEventsByDes?ref=hdr_shop_menu
The location was at a friend of the couple’s home. The evites originally went out 3 weeks prior to the event and updated a week prior. The couple had no idea about the event. The mother of the bride said she bought tickets to a local comedy show for the couple and their friend. They were to go pick her up for the show. Just before the show Natalie’s friend asked them to come in for a glass of wine before the show. It all flowed together perfectly and it was a complete surprise for them. They had no idea when they walked through the doors that all their close friends would be inside.
