Friday Fab Find ~ Announce Your Engagement Over the Holidays!

Friday Fab Finds

Your future partner for life just popped the big question! Maybe you were snuggling by the fire when it happened. Maybe you were shopping for the perfect Christmas tree for your apartment when he/she got down on one knee. Maybe you were decorating the house with holly and mistletoe and BOOM there’s the ring… you said yes, you’re engaged! But now what? Since it’s the holiday season, it’s time to announce the happy news to your family! This part can be a little overwhelming but certainly a perfect opportunity to get creative and dazzle your family with the story. [Then, go out and hire your wedding planner… wink wink!]

When there’s food involved, everyone’s happy, so why not decorate your go-to holiday favorite treats with your announcement!

From tags to ribbons to wrapping, giving a cute hint or clue to the surprise as they open a box or untie a ribbon is a fun and festive way to unveil the big announcement!
Some great treats for delivering the news? Mason Jars with hot cocoa mix (possibly with ‘ingredients’ as to how the proposal happened), tin cans full of goodies with a sticker or writing on the top, brownies or pies in a cup, or even traditional cupcakes with adorable toppers!

Some other cute ideas for sharing the news over the holiday season:

Custom clothing: Printing your announcement on a T-shirt or scarf (or even an ugly holiday sweater for those parties that you’ve undoubtedly been invited to!)

The Two Part Announcement: Bringing up the news in a small, casual family setting can be intimate and special. Then you can bring it up a level by planning the larger traditional announcement to the entire family.
