Engagement Party Moments

The proposal took place under the Eiffel Tower. The groom-to-be had a private conversation with my husband, asking to marry our daughter......the secret was never revealed until we received the phone call from Paris !

And, everyone who knows me, knows of my passion for France and Paris~and now, it is one of my daughter's as well! 

The decorations (Oyster Pearls) include French Dragees I purchased from India Tree

While in Ballards Design, I found sheets of paper with Parisian captions to place behind the cookies.


This is the beginning of a beautiful life for two very special people~Our families are thrilled to announce the engagement! Congratulations you two!

What a delightful celebration! My daughter and s-i-l were engaged at the top at midnight when the lights all twinkle... le sigh

They have returned several times since and now contemplate taking their children. The seven-year-old can even tell the story about his parents becoming engaged.

Best wishes to them. Save me one of those TE cookies! miam-miam!

Bises,
Genie

How lovely, haven't visited your blog for a long time but congratulations to your daughter and her fiance. We've just returned from 3.5 weeks in France and I think the four of us have started a little love affair with the country ourselves.

;-) well Jann I hope it's also the beginning of a beautiful family for all. I know many may say it's old fashioned for the man to ask for your daughter but I think it give you a wonderful clue to his understanding of what "family" really means! Congratulations to all.
