Surprise Engagement Brunch November 04 2013

A while back I was asked to help throw a surprise Engagement Brunch for my niece. Of course I did my part by designing the invitation. I've also become quite a legend around here for setting up a mimosa bar. The crazy part about this whole thing though, is we decided to pull it off in less than two weeks! It was a little hairy in the beginning trying to bring it all together, but in the end, seeing Jake and Eden so surprised, made it all totally worth it!

The invitation came together pretty nicely, given the tight timeline, I didn't over-think it. I pulled from their wedding color palette and got to work. 

I also created an "Eden's To Do before I Do" notepad. You see Lucy above checking it out. I think she approves.


This, my friends, made all the scurrying around beforehand, so worth it. They were genuinely surprised! It was a great moment!

And to soften our nerves, we had mimosas.
