as i mentioned yesterday, my little sister got engaged over this past weekend on old mission peninsula (yay)!  the rest of us have known about it since the beginning of july, so my mom and i have been secretly planning a little engagement party back at the family cottage in northern michigan, with a little help from etsy (of course).  the bf and i secretly drove up from chicago to be there for their arrival.

letters from joyfuljoyful's etsy shop
 paper poms from party poms' etsy shop
 the poms took a little bit of time to assemble, but they looked AMAZING!

and then the happy couple arrived...

first engagement present!

and so ends another perfect weekend in pure michigan.
