DIY Cocktail Bars

Toast to your upcoming wedding with some classy cocktails! Let your guests customize their own drinks with whatever flavours and garnishes they please. Just pick a few of your favourite spirits, some tasty mixers, add some extras… and you’ve got yourself a cocktail bar to keep the party going all night!



Signature Drinks

If you’d rather create your own lovely libations, creating a signature drink is another fun way to mix in your personalities to the party. Having a signature drink could also cut down on the costs. Rather than paying for an open bar or multiple spirits and mixers for the celebration, just pick up the key ingredients to make your signature drinks, and you’re all set.

Metallic Decor

Metallics are still in style this year and add the perfect element of style to any party. Tie your metallic tones in through multiple aspects of the party to create a hip, sleek look for the night.

Fun Photo Ops

Who doesn’t love taking a few selfies during a celebration! Give your guests something to smile about with a festive backdrop or playful props.

Personal Touches

What’s a better time to create some fun personal signage or monograms for you and your beloved than an engagement party?! There are so many different ways to add personal touches to you engagement party from personalised treats or decorations.
