DIY- Pig Roast Engagement Party

July 29, 2010

One of my good friends from high school, Lauren, emailed me recently to share this event. Along with Jess (the engaged) and another friend, they planned detail for detail this “Tom and Jess Fest”. Being a bunch of design majors, it is no surprise it turned out to be SPECTACULAR….not to mention it was just featured on Design Sponge last week! So, if you are planning an important event, let this inspire you to get creative! It’s all in the details!


In Lauren’s words, “Jess and I discussed concept and vision from the beginning, along with our close friend (and Jess’ MOH) Amanda. Our color palette was soft peach/pink and craft paper brown…with accents of hot/neon pink and gold. “……

“From gorgeous screen printed invitations on chip board in hot pink lettering with a vellum overlay in gold/peach to homemade bunting, routed out pieces of old lumber for floral centerpieces, laser cut wooden signs with vinyl lettering applied, wrapping tables in craft paper, a magnetic chalkboard painted door to display their lovely engagement photos taken in L.A. (where they used to live) and a place for guests to write clever comments for the couple. The list goes on and on! “….

“We made some homemade summer cocktails (entitled ‘piggy punch’ and ‘porch swing’ to celebrate summer), each glass adorned with those adorable striped straws. Of course, with that much love and care poured into everything, how could you not dance the night away in celebration??” 


Aren’t these details perfect?! The photography is just incredible. You can see more of the photos on Swell Photography Blog! If you have any questions, email me, and I will be sure to pass them on to Lauren! Thank you dear friend for sharing your talent with us!
