Enter For A Chance To Win A $25 Target Gift Card



Target Wedding’s “Be Yourself, Together” campaign celebrates the idea that a couple can enter a marriage, combine their unique styles, and still create a life that reflects their individuality.  I am happy to be working with Target again for this fun campaign (they’re also offering a chance for Family Chic readers to win a $25.00 Target gift card — see bottom of post for entry details). This time, I’ve been asked to suggest a few items from the Target Wedding Catalog that I think would help to set the scene for a fun and stylish pre-wedding party. Of all the pre-nuptual events (bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, bachelor/bachelorette party, etc.) I think the most thrilling is that moment when the engagement is celebrated. How exciting it is to share such happy news with loved ones; to be met with cheers, hugs and champagne toasts.

And don’t forget — this moment doesn’t have to be a huge, costly event. Instead of a large engagement party, think small and cozy and invite a just few close friends and family over for drinks and appetizers. To help make the moment special, I’ve pulled together a few items from the Target Wedding Catalog as well as from Target.com that will help you make the event fun, memorable and affordable. (Click on images to link through to full product details.)

I love classic stemware, it never goes out of style. The Riedel Vivant Champagne Flutes are just the thing for that very special celebratory toast to the happy couple.

White napkins from Threshold will look crisp and fresh on any table and the Wellbridge Dinnerware Set in aqua (also from Threshold) is great for everyday use as well as for special dinners. I would use the 8-inch salad plates for appetizers.

After you have your dishes, napkins and stemware selected, you can start incorporating those little details that add personality. Here are a few items I selected from Target.com to help create a fun and festive feel that your guests will appreciate and remember…

Wind a set of battery operated lights around your chandelier or in a plant to create softer mood lighting.

Fill small burlap bags with candy, tulip bulbs or a small votive candle and give as a party favor.

Use rustic-looking ribbon or twine to serve as a napkin ring or to link heart-shaped paper cutouts to each champagne flute.

Instead of a traditional tablecloth, roll out a sheet of postal wrapping paper and put out a few markers or crayons. Your guests won't be able to resist the urge to doodle or leave a happy message of good wishes for the newly engaged couple.

Thanks to Target, Family Chic readers can enter for a chance to win a $25.00 Target gift Card!
