- Everybody is very happy. I think for me that was the most beautiful, atmospheric and sophisticated Ballroom we have done and that was due to the quality of the things hired from you! Girls very happy and the Ball went very well. Excellent behaviour and I am sure a lot of it is because the students are in such a beautiful setting. they get blown away and a lot of them have never seen anything like it, except for movies!!
Great working with you and I know the girls learned a lot, including sticking to a budget and learning to work together.
Thanks so much.

Throw a flawless one by following these easy steps:
Top tips for Engagement Parties (0.25MB)
Typically an engagement party is done cocktail or lounge style. This will allow you to create a classy setting which allows for plenty of guest interaction. Keep the food small, serving continuous mini-sized appetizers and cocktails. The real trick here is not to upstage the wedding - there is no need to go overboard - remember, the point is to celebrate your engagement. If you have an idea of the theme and style you want to use for your wedding, introduce elements of it into your engagement party...as this will help create consistency and cohesion when it comes to the big day itself.
Perfect hire items for your cocktail style engagement party include:
Lounge furniture, lighting and effects, sound equipment, bar leaners, a dramatic entrance, dance floors, balloons and centerpieces.
If you prefer to keep things simple, then why not throw a BBQ in the back yard for your engagement party. Think wine barrels, umbrellas, bar stations, heaters, furniture and decorations.
If the budget allows, include a few small floral arrangements to perk up the space. This is also a great way to try out a potential florist for the wedding.
Once again congratulations! Enjoy this time, and please get in touch if we can be of any assistance with your engagement party plans. Feel free to visit us in our Taupo based showroom for inspiration and ideas.
