An Autumn Engagement party for a couple has so many possibilities when it come to themes, decor, and colors. It’s harvest season for many fruits, vegetables, and gourds, and the colors are rich and sumptuous. I designed this apple themed engagement party, which was featured on the Wedding Chicks recently, and I’m happy to share it here today.
I chose the apple theme because I could do such a fun play on words relating back to a couple in love. Thanks to James Linkowitz Photography and Little Bean Boutique, for their contributions with photography and paper goods. I’ve outlined the details and thoughts behind the design, below.
Autumn Engagement Party Ideas:
The design was inspired by crisp red apples and the idea of tying in the concept of “picking” apples, and “picking” a mate. Most of the decorative details are hand made and provide a balance of masculine and feminine.
The printable signs were a key part of conveying the concept with special puns. A framed sign reads, “he Picked her, she Picked him;” a small card on the table reads, “you’re the Apple of my eye;” favor jars of apple butter had a label which said, “we Picked this just for you,” and baskets of apples invite guests to “take your Pick“ and carry home. Each place setting also had a caramel dipped apple…yum!
A key focal point was the burlap backdrop with a manzanita branch attached, and faux apples hanging from the “apple tree.”
Mini apple pies with the cutest fabric & lace flag picks are available for dessert, and of course apple cider is on the menu.
Swags of lace, and banners made of twine, felt leaves, and paper circles were draped around the area to tie in to the lace details & leaf glass cover on the dining table.
