Happy I Do Year!

Fernando Jorge Fusion 18-karat rose gold multi-stone ring ?7,390

New Years Eve engagement party ideas

So?? Did Santa bring what you really? really wanted? A whopping big sparkler symbolising the fact that Someone Wants To MARRY You? Well, congratulations. That’s just great. And if not, maybe you shouldn’t have whinged so much about your colleagues? that’s what landed you on the Naughty list, you know. But back to you, bride-to-be; time to get planning that engagement party – and what better occasion than New Year’s Eve?

Your ring will be the star of the show, so use it as the basis for your colour palette

 

Starting with star-spangled invites to get guests in the mood (and not in the least miffed that you’re attempting to hijack their New Year)

 

A dress that says, ?I’m excited, but I haven’t lost the run of myself?

 

Champagne glasses and fortune cookies dipped in glitter sugar, because when will you ever get another chance to serve sparkly food?

Fun decorative features like a bubbly bar, or a diamond pi?ata – oh, and don’t forget the glitter party poppers.

Now, get your party on!
