This exotic Polynesian themed engagement party was the perfect way to kick off the couple’s wedding festivities. A feast of color for the eyes and appetite, everything in the room was adorned with bright and bold colors, from the decor to the food and drinks. The bright pink draping and light up acrylic highboys brought the party to life. Guests sipped colorful cocktails on the balcony overlooking the city from atop City Club Birmingham long after the sun had set over downtown.
Hanging candle lanterns hovered over the buffet of Polynesian hors d’oeuvres that exuded an extra glow as the evening began. After enjoying light bites of an assortment of summery salads and Polynesian themed snacks, guests then dined on the decadent raspberry mint quail poppers. After guests had dined, mixed and mingled, a dessert display featuring tiny bites of a variety of sweets was set and allowed guests to enjoy a little of everything.
Festive signature cocktails were popping with color and paired well with the Polynesian theme, showing off the couple’s favorite summer drinks. The bright green Appletini with a white swirl, delicately layered Mai Tai with a fruit garnish, vibrant Hurricane with an orange slice, and crips Cucumber Vodka Soda were perfect for the warm, summer night soiree. Although guests were at the highest point in the city, this engagement party boasted an island vibe, from the festive palm leaf linen, delicious bites and festive decor, leaving guests feeling fun and tropical.
