Christmas Engagement Party

Engagement party styling

It was with great pleasure that Petite Posh Parties were asked to style the engagement party of Hayley and Steve Tobin late last year.  In consultation with Hayley, we were able to transform their already amazing beach front apartment, into a romantic venue.  It was the small detail of this party which bought the large and spread out space together.

We worked around our colour theme (chosen by Hayley) of red and pink. Katherine and I adore hearts and where better to work them into a function than a romantic engagement party, we were able to choose an array of hearts from our collection. This allowed us to bring three theme elements together (romantic, colour and Christmas).   Being a week away from Christmas we had to add some festive d├ęcor into the mix.

The ceiling beams were the ideal spot to hang our gorgeous tulle pom poms (yes you guessed it, red, white and pink!) They looked simply stunning in this space which back dropped onto a beautiful sunset view (yes it's Western Australia, our beaches have some of the best sunsets in the world).

Our focal point was the small lolly table, this was at the right height for the children (who may have over indulged just a little on our red and silver heart chocolates and red jelly beans!) We also placed a beautiful rustic birdcage on the table and again the red pegs and envelopes tied into the colour scheme beautifully.

Hayley, also had a bare wall that she wanted decorated, so Katherine and I used a wall decal and gifted this to the couple.  Our charming silver Christmas branches were adorned with beautiful romantic poetry to match.

Our red carpet made a grand entrance downstairs, where couples were asked to watch a beautiful display of fire-eating/dancing. It was a warm balmy evening. Hayley and Steve also kept their guests entertained with a psychic reader and a DJ.

The Paella man stationed outside the front entrance ensured all the guests were well fed and this was accompanied by a beautiful Sparkling from the couple's Margaret River vineyard, Aravina Estate.

I'll be sure to post about the gorgeous wedding I had the honour of attending, in the meantime you can view photos on the Style me Pretty blog,  here.
