Take the Party Outside
Whether you are having a long or short engagement party, there is nothing like enjoying the outdoors to celebrate. You can take your party to the beach or add outdoor touches by throwing a backyard luau.
Have a backyard bonfire
An engagement party does not have to be fancy, and you do not have to spend a lot of money on it. The point is to connect with your loved ones and celebrate, which you can do by lighting some matches and snuggling up in blankets to celebrate over s’mores, backyard games, and traditional bonfire tunes.
Create your own taco bar
Who doesn’t like a taco bar? We can guarantee that all of your quests are going to love it! You can display a variety of beans, meats, salsas, guacamole, and tortilla shells for your guests to create their own tacos. You can also have a full margarita and Bloody Mary table, when the guests get thirsty!
Make a mimosa bar
Mimosas are a drink for everyone, and the engagement party is the perfect opportunity to have as many of them as your heart desires. You can buy juice, your favorite fruit, and champagne to toast to your journey as a newly engaged couple. Just like with the taco bar, you should set up a full bar for your guests to create their ideal mimosa.
Eat your classic go-to breakfast dishes at your backyard. You can serve many different meals, from scrambled eggs to French toast and egg casserole, to celebrate your new journey together over morning champagne.
