Black and white engagement party

Today's post is a little glimpse of a dear friend and her lovely fiance's engagement party. As the title suggests the theme was black and white.

Held in a restaurant the allocated area was beautifully decorated. Without being over the top but keeping the black and white theme in mind, fresh flowers sitting in mason jars sat along the tables. Tea light candles lightly flickered whilst wooden letters and the word engagement sat on the cake and guest book table.

Doubling up as a seat placing each guest received a black bag with a mini chalkboard showing their name. Inside this bag was a large black and white lollypop.

Besides the happy couple the other star of the engagement was the naked cake. Being my first introduction to the naked cake I was taken aback, this cake was hot. Exposing it's layers of sponge and cream there wasn't much left for the eye to undress, I wasn't the only one wanting a piece!

I couldn't help myself and had to include photos of the food which was plentiful. The first course course consisted of garlic and tomato pizza, salt and pepper squid and salad. For main we were given the luxury of choosing one dish from a list of eight. I choose the chargrilled marinated chicken breast which was delicious. For dessert we received a slice of the naked cake. Moist, despite exposure to the air the cake was absolutely delicious, if that wasn't enough food there was also fruit, cannelloni's, tea and coffee, we literally rolled out!
