Doilies, Lace and Burlap Engagement Party for Amie and Matt
This past year I have been obsessed with scrapbooking. Literally, obsessed. My husband will not even go with me to Michael’s anymore… Since completing the year of engagement scrapbooks for my 2012 brides, I have been missing the craft like crazy! So when Amie and I started talking about her engagement party I got so excited to bring out the craft supplies: the paper, the glue, the photos, all the fun stuff!
Here’s the invite we came up with… she wanted to use lace and burlap to decorate the party—and the wedding—so we designed a card that had the rustic look with Kraft paper but with the added feminine touch of a paper doily. And I love how we got to use a photo from the actual proposal too!
And I love adding the extra detail of the brown edges with a stamp pad, ever since creating Shane and Kyrene’s Meant to Bee wedding suite.
And of course, we had a little craft night to create these multi layered invites… something I always look forward to, a girls night in with the bride to be!
The party was just this past weekend, and what a party it was. Here’s a very small glimpse of the decorations, Amie plans on reusing these white frames at the wedding for the table numbers too. You may recognize the first framed photo from our Christmas shoot in 2011.
I loved how I had this Kraft wrapping paper on hand for their gift to match the decor!
We were only missing Joyce from the bridal party, but here are the bridesmaids with our bride!
And of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a photo of the bride and groom to be! So happy for them!
