Southern Charm On The Farm Engagement Party Raleigh
Courtney Scholl of Parties by Bash helped bring together all the sweet elements that made the fall engagement Party at shady Wagon farm a gorgeous gathering.
To create the atmosphere of rustic Southern charm that the couple wanted for the casual family affair, Parties by BASH chose a fun mix of patterned fabrics in coordinating colors that were imparted throughout the décor
– from pennants tied to the backs of the chairs to the toppers for the hay bale benches.
The eclectic floral designs were created using simple flowers in shades of red and yellow, and a variety of vases, antique drink bottles and vintage colored glass containers.
Guests were treated to a delicious family style feast. The meal included mini lobster rolls, Greek lamb sliders and fresh grilled corn on the cob with cilantro butter. Dessert options included mini cakes as well as S’more kits to cook over an open fire.
Cocktails were chosen to fit the Southern theme, including classic Firefly Sweet Tea for the ladies – served in a mason jar wine glass (also featured on the whimsical invitations) – and an Old Fashioned for the gentlemen. Guys
and gals alike were given a Sweet Tea Kit, complete with everything you need to make the Southern favorite, as a fun souvenier of the evening.
Entertainment took the form of games including yard Twister, horseshoes and corn hole, while guests were able to grab a seat and lounge on one of the hay bale benches scattered throughout the lawn and enjoy great food, great drinks and great company.
