Congratulations! Someone you know, or someone you love, put a ring on it! It's time to celebrate, and were not talking about the big day, or the bridal shower, or the bachelor/bachelorette parties. We're talking about the one that kicks it all off: the engagement party. There will clearly be plenty of parties to come, so make the first one unique by forgoing the frills and all-white color palette. The engagement party can be a little more . . . sexy than the other parties. It's an intimate party for your nearest and dearest. Incorporate black and gold as base colors, popped with fuchsia napkins and live greens. Set the mood with candlelight, and don't be shy with flowers. Fill up a cheeky pair of bust vases with blooming roses and place a bud in the place card holders. It's sure to be a night to a remember.
