Last weekend was absolutely incredible! One of my very best friends got engaged and we had such a fun time celebrating the couple's love and surprising them with a top secret engagement party Sunday evening.
Kelsie and James first met on a CRU retreat and were sharing s'mores around a bonfire when they had their first conversation. We thought it would be really fun to re-live their first s'mores "date" by having a s'more bar engagement party theme.
There were lots of options so each person could customize their s'more to their liking...
every flavor of marshmallow you could imagine...
We decorated the house with pictures of the couple and had a few banners and balloons as well.
The future Mr. and Mrs. James and Kelsie Tyson:
One of James' favorite cakes is carrot cake...so of course we had to have one of those too!
I LOVE this chalkboard that featured their special dates and memories:
The party guests began arriving right before Kelsie and James did so that we could surprise them as soon as they walked into the door:
James and Kels then shared their engagement story...
and showed off that ring because they are ENGAGED!
Then it was s'more time.
:) ^^^love this.
All the party go-ers received ring pop favors to take home:
So of course there had to be a few more ring pictures!
Kels and the boys:
It was such a fun weekend and I can't wait to celebrate the couple even more these next few months! Congratulations future Mr. and Mrs. Tyson!
