engagement party peacock theme

The peacock-inspired color palette has always been a personal favorite for me – especially when it comes to holiday parties (see proof here and here). So of course I was instantly smitten by this gorgeous Peacock Themed Engagement Party styled by the talented Courtney of Pizzazzerie!

Rich jewel tones, hand-painted table signs, pinwheel drink stirrers served alongside a vibrant blue signature drink, and feathers galore… what’s not to love?!

Read on for lots more pics and all the pretty details, as told by Courtney

“When a friend and past coworker of mine recently got engaged, I knew I wanted to throw her a fabulous engagement party! When we shared an office together, we used to daydream up fun party ideas incorporating gorgeous jewel tones so I knew her party had to have a similar feel. So… Peacock it was!

I had a blast pulling the various pieces of the party together. I used a variety of gorgeous jewel toned fabrics for the tablecloths. We had one large table and several high-top tables.

I was excited to design a dramatic centerpiece with various sizes and colors of ostrich plumes and peacock feathers displayed in a vase filled with colored water and gemstones.

We served a signature cocktail of citrus blue Curacao for that bright blue color that matched the decor perfectly (and tasted delicious!).

I have fallen in love with pinwheels lately so I incorporated custom-made peacock themed pinwheels as drink stirrers. We displayed these inside a glass vase filled with floral foam.

Also on the drink table was a tall blue vase filled with more peacock feathers and floral branches from the craft store that I spray painted in various shades of navy, purple, and teal.

I framed a custom monogram in a fun frame on the main table alongside a large picture of the couple. These were fun “take home” gifts for the newly engaged when the night was done!

The monogram was also incorporated on the cupcake flags and water bottle labels.

Another neat element to this party were the handpainted placecards and signs used on the tables. Michelle Mospens of My Personal Artist created the beautiful artwork and has since added an entire invitation suite  in her line with this theme (and she named it “Courtney”!).

A variety of hors d oeuvres were served included my favorite, caprese skewers. I have loads of fresh basil in my backyard so it was fun to use it for these tasty bites! They were very simple to make and easy to serve in mini martini glasses.

Chocolate raspberry kabobs were served along with vanilla almond cupcakes and sugar cookies for dessert. The cookies were custom designed to math the party colors – and they were delicious too!

For the chocolate raspberry kabobs, we just put a brownie bite topped with a raspberry on a wooden skewer! Easy and simple as well as delicious.

Homemade white chocolate, peanut butter, raspberry, and chocolate s’mores were served as party favors as guests left the party.

Everyone was also asked to leave a short “word of advice” for the soon-to-be married couple. The notes were pinned inside a shadow box that I painted to match the colors of the party. It was another sweet gift to send home with the couple.

    Awesome….Yes I wanted it…where can i get cupcake stand like that? …….

  41. Nat September 1, 2010 at 10:59 am

    everything looks so amazing! i was just wondering, what sizes of ostrich plumes and peacock feathers did you use?

  42. Courtney @ Pizzazzerie September 1, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    The fabric came from JoAnnes!
    The cupcake stand – I made this out of wood and the ostrich plumes, some were 10 inches, others were 12 to 16… they are sticking down in floral foam. The peacock feathers were 22 or 24 I believe.

  43. sophia September 1, 2010 at 11:45 pm

    Really amazing and creative………
