Our friends recently got engaged and are planning a wedding for next summer in Atlanta, Georgia! We threw them a surprise engagement party with a Georgia Peach theme.
The difficulty here is there is a very fine line between Peach and shade of pink, so sometimes I just had to go with close enough.
I cut out a cardboard stencil to make peach bases of generally the same size. I liked using the textured scrapbook paper for these to add more depth to it.
I freestyle cut the leaves with my BFF x-acto knife.
Obviously, Peaches are heavily represented among the food items, but also classic Southern dishes.
Shrimp Etouffee with Rice
Peach White Wine Sangria
Peach Iced Tea
Champagne/Sparkling Cider for the toast
We wanted to give the happy couple a souvenir from their surprise party.
I designed an image on Picmonkey, and Matt had it printed 11x11in at the copy shop.
I attached it to a wooden craft frame we got at Joann's that I had spray painted white. The image is backed with foam board to give it a little more structure.
We had all the guests at the party sign another foam board that attached to the back of the frame, post-signing, with hot glue.
Voila, customized gift!
Happy Engagement Y'all!
And here's My Sunday Best!
