Engagement parties should be just about as special as the wedding is. Many times the engagement party has the same theme as the wedding will. Peacock feathers are lovely and elegant and they would make a great theme for a wedding and the engagement party before. Peacock feather come in different sizes depending on what part of the peacock tail the feather came from. Here are a few ideas using peacock feathers for an engagement party.
The invitation to the engagement party could have a real peacock feather on the front of the invite. Or you could just have a picture of a peacock feather on the invite. Likewise if you are going to have a program then the program could have a peacock feather on it.
Table centerpieces can be a lovely bouquet of peacock feathers in crystal vases. You can use the smaller peacock feathers for the table center pieces at the engagement party and at the wedding you can use the large peacock feathers for the table center pieces. You can also add a few flowers or other types of feathers along with the peacock feathers.
Every guest can have a boutonnière made of one pretty peacock feather. Just use the top part of the peacock feather for the boutonniere and wrap the bottom with some florist tape. Then you can use a pretty pin to pin the peacock feather onto your engagement party guests.
The bride to be and the bridesmaids top be could have a lovely peacock feather in their hair. The bride cold have a large peacock feather and the bridesmaids could have smaller peacock feathers. Like the peacock feather boutonnieres just use the top pretty part of the peacock feather and pin it into the hair. You can pin it on the side of the head so that the larger part of the peacock feather is toward the back.
Each place setting could have a peacock feather near it. The peacock feather could be a name place with the name of the guest written on a fancy piece of paper that is connected to the peacock feather. Then the name place peacock feather can be laid next to the plate along with the silverware or it can be in a tiny vase next to the plate.
The bride could have a bouquet of peacock feathers at the engagement party. This bouquet of peacock feathers can be the entire peacock feather tied in a bunch with ribbon and held so that the peacock bouquet trails off toward the elbow. Try to keep the peacock feathers smaller so they don’t extend past the elbow or the bride to be will be hitting everyone with their peacock feather bouquet all evening.
