Little Things Celebrates Alecia’s Engagement Party
Nov 15, 2010
Yesterday was certainly a day to celebrate! All of the Little Things employees attended Alecia’s engagement party on Sunday, November 14, 2010 at the Harvest Bistro in Closter, NJ. The party was any bride-to-be’s dream: Alecia chose an autumn theme, which coordinated perfectly with the rustic setting of the restaurant. Walking in, guests were greeted by birch trees and a tremendous stone fireplace. Wrought iron candle holders with leaf accents and mini orange pumpkins were at the center of each table, and autumn leaves were scattered around the centerpieces. Even the cake was designed to match: the three-tiered delicacy was accented with fondant leaves falling down the tiers; and inside was chocolate, buttercream and dolce de leche. Additionally , there was a chocolate fountain with assorted dipping items such as strawberries, bananas, apples, brownies, homemade marshmallow, pound cake, and pretzel rods. The food was absolutely delicious as well. Guests had their choice of Caesar salad, assorted fresh fruit, hot turkey, a pasta station, Belgian waffles, French Toast, potatoes gratin, and green beans. Yum!
Of course, Alecia featured some of our wedding favors and accessories at her bash. Our Fall Wedding Custom Banner was hung above the fireplace (though it fell shortly after and was then moved to a tree). She also used our Personally Yours Guest Book in ivory (she’s saving the ring pillow for the wedding), and these “Fall for Love” Leaf Magnets as her place cards. Unfortunately the glass leaf candle votive she used for her engagement party favor was discontinued, but the favors were beautifully wrapped in a beige paper, a brown ribbon, and finished off with these Personalized Square Theme Labels in the tree design. Finally, she toasted and sliced the cake with our elegant Venice Gold toasting flutes and serving set.
We can all definitely say that Alecia’s party could not have been any better, and the warm, autumn theme had us “falling in love!” Congratulations, Alecia! You looked absolutely beautiful and we hope you had a great time. We wish nothing but the best for you and Marten. We can’t wait to start planning the wedding!
Enjoy your week! <3 Kelsey
