Take it as a sign...engagement party decorations

Welcome back! (or I’m glad to meet you if this is your first visit!) The heat and humidity has arrived in New Hampshire—and I am melting. I am excited to say that the engagement party for Hannah and John went great. The food and beverages seemed to be enjoyed by everyone. John and his parents introduced us to a new lawn game called Molkky, which was a BIG hit with guests of all ages. Hannah was in charge of the decor, and put a personal twist on the party with four very cute signs.

The signs were inspired by ones found on Pinterest, but Hannah created all her own designs! She used a Silhouette Cameo to graphically design and cut the text from vinyl. She is generously allowing me to share the files with all of you for your personal use. I am sure they will add a creative touch to an engagement party or bridal shower.

Mint to be - Fill a bowl or jar with York peppermint patties, mint lifesavers, Andes mints, or any of your favorite mint candy. John, the groom, loves York peppermint patties!

Tying the knot - Pretzels are the perfect food to accompany this sign! Add some mustard, yellow and brown, and they make a great appetizer.

Pop the champagne - Create an adult beverage that incorporates Champagne and display this sign close by. It alerts the guests that the beverage is alcoholic, and is such a cute saying about the bride!

Sparkling Pina Colada Punch - This is the delicious one Hannah made!

  • ½ bottle of Malibu rum (750mL)
  • ¼ bottle of Bicardi pineapple rum (750mL)
  • 1 bottle of Champagne or sparkling white wine
  • 1 bottle of ginger ale (2L)
  • ½ can of pineapple juice (46oz.)
  • 1 can pineapple chunks (20oz.)

This design is my favorite! ❤️

Love grows here - A simple and elegant way to present guests with a little more information about the couple. The design tells about important dates of their past and their future!

If you have a Silhouette cutting machine, the .studio3 files should work for you. If you would just like to print the designs, the .svg files are editable in Adobe Illustrator. In either case, you'll have to change the Love Grows Here file to include your own special dates!

I hope you enjoy these designs, or take some inspiration from them to make your own designs! As usual, you can tag TU living on Facebook (@TUliving.Kathy) or Twitter and Instagram (@TU_living)!
