Rooftop party scheming

I’m hosting an engagement party this spring. It’s not going to be crazy, but I’m SO excited for it, you guys. How come, you ask?

First, this couple is near & dear to our hearts. The bride is like a little sister to me, and the groom went to high school & played sports with my husband. What a coincidence that they’re getting married, you say? Well, we get full credit for that – they met at a housewarming party we had in our last apartment! Hosting is extra fun when you throw a little matchmaking into the game.

Second, I’m still in wedding withdrawal. All the fun planning & designing & scheming & pinning… I could do it five times over. I wish we could have had two weddings, a summer one and a winter one, but that speaks more to my obsession with seasons than anything else… (also Steve will kill me if I joke one more time about buying another wedding dress!)

Third, oh my gosh, spring. Spring weather, spring dresses, spring colors. Maybe the start of a tan. Can this party please hurry up?!

I don’t normally start planning something so far in advance, but what the heck. I’ve got pastels on the mind and I’m ready. Starting with party colors and invitations! Collaborating on invitation design with Caitlin Creative Works was one of my favorite parts of wedding planning, so yeah, I’m a LITTLE excited for this part.

Which one do you guys like best?!
