So you all probably know by now that I love to throw parties…or maybe I should say I love to decorate for parties. The food part of parties I will gladly hand over any day. Cooking is not my gift. That just might be why this particular party was so great.
My brother-in-law got engaged a few months ago and he and his new fiance are back in the United States for the summer. (Levi always says…they live in China and China is VERY far away). I have been praying for the perfect girl for James for a long time. I was beginning to think it was hopeless (Sorry James, I was!)…then all of a sudden he started talking about his friend, Liz. I knew she was special just by the way he talked about her. And now they are engaged! Liz is so great and I am thrilled for them. What a blessing to have another sweet sister-in-law!
This was definitely a good reason to throw a party. Joel’s parents hosted, Joel’s sisters took care of all the food, and I got to just show up and decorate. It was awesome.
The engagement party was the weekend after July Fourth so we went with an Americana theme. It seemed fitting since they were back in the United States for the summer. So here is a peek into the night of the engagement party.
It was great night of celebrating a very special couple. Now we are counting down the days until the wedding!!
