At the end of December, right after Christmas, Kevin and I’s friends and family threw us an engagement party! The event was perfectly relaxed and low-key just how Kevin and I like it, and we were surrounded by our friends and family so what could be better!

Merevin Engagement Party at Home

Our engagement party was hosted at my mother’s home and was organized by my sister (my maid of honor) and the rest of my family. The fact that family put the entire thing together made the party even more meaningful and special because it truly represented the love and joy our wedding will hopefully be about.

We decided to hold the party right after Christmas so that our out of town friends would already be in town since Florida is where they come to be home for the holidays. This meant that quite a lot of our closest friends could be there to celebrate and toast our engagement!

The decorations were adorable and majorly featured pictures of Kevin and I through our years as a couple. Since we have been together for 10 years now, there were a ton of pictures that were used as a backdrop around the cake! Another benefit to being a couple since you were young is that your pictures together include slightly embarrassing pictures from years spent with bad haircuts and braces. However these pictures certainly entertained the guests…

Having any excuse to gather all of my family in one place is a dream for me! No matter what the difficulties end up being with the planning and coordinating, it always ends up being worth it to see everyone and to just hang out! However my favorite times are when the reason is to celebrate me (and Kevin)!

Now let’s talk about this cake! My brother’s girlfriend is amazingly gifted when it comes to desserts and the presentation of her creations. For Kevin and I’s engagement party she created the perfect cake and cupcake arrangement that completely suited our aesthetic preferences. The woodsy theme was perfectly reminiscent of Kevin’s proposal on the Trail of the Cedars while the use of white really made it feel like a wedding related event.

Then there is how the cake and cupcakes tasted and ‘amazingly delicious’ is really the only way to try to describe them. The yellow cake cupcakes even had a hidden pocket of chocolate custard inside and the chocolate ones had a mint frosting so that they were mint chocolate!

Our engagement party was perfect! Everyone mixed and mingled well while Kevin and I were able to visit with all of our guest! We want to thank everyone that was involved in putting the party together for us, it was everything we wanted it to be. And thank all our friends that travelled to attend, gatherings are always amazing when you are all around.

Now it’s time to get ready for the wedding!!
