We just hosted an engagement party for our son and future daughter-in-law. They are getting married in Las Vegas next year so the theme was based on that. Red, white, black and gold and all things casino.
The wedding will be at an all inclusive place which includes decorations, centerpieces, etc. You know I live for these types of things, so I was given the "go ahead" to go crazy for this party. AND THAT I DID!
We had so much fun! It hit triple digit temps on Saturday but we still had a blast! Lots of fun and laughter!

|The future Wedding Party|
I really wish we had one of those beautiful landscaped backyards, but that is so not true. So we did the best we could with what we have. We went out and bought two new canopies, outdoor carpets, and lots of potted flowers/plants. I'll try not to kill them.
We hired the taco cart for the main dish and the moms made the side dishes. Me, the salads and fruit trays and future mother-in-law made the rice, beans, chips/salsa. The brothers pitched in to buy the alcohol and sister helped with the decorations and games.
I had a lot of inspiration from pinterest, youtube, and other blogs but then put my own twist on them.
