Vanderpump Rules personality Raquel Leviss had a sweet celebration for her recent engagement to co-star James Kennedy with a garden tea-themed party and her closest girlfriends.

The guests included Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix, former VPR star Charli Burnett, and Paige Lorentzen. Raquel and the girls were all smiles as each of them dressed in their dreamiest floral and pastel dresses.

The intimate party didn’t seem to miss a single detail. From the elaborate flower decor all the way down to the menu, the setup was a hopeless romantic’s dream come true.

Raquel’s engagement tea party was fit for a princess

To say the romantic tea party theme of Raquel’s engagement party was well done is an understatement. The elaborate decorations fit perfectly with the tablescape provided by ROKKBOX.

The decor included floral tea dishware, pink and white flowers with greenery, white napkins and plenty of treats.

Each guest was also provided with their own personalized tea box from Morning Lavender OC. According to details shared on Bravo’s website, the tea box included several sweets and each box was topped with a note reading, “Raquel said yes! Thank you for joining us as we celebrate the newly engaged James & Raquel!” revealed several details from the event.

Raquel took to Instagram with several snaps from the event along with a message of thanks to all who were involved in making the day a reality.

“What a special day to remember! [pink flower emoji] Thank you @ROKKBOX for the engagement-tea-party of my dreams! And thank you to my girls for celebrating with me,” the caption read in part.

Raquel’s friends share love for her and James’s engagement

Fans flooded Raquel’s comment section gushing over the party’s theme and leaving nothing but love and well-wishes for her and James.

Naturally, James also made an appearance and left a comment on Raquel’s post, lovingly writing, “My classy angel I love you [red heart emoji].”

Ariana also stopped by and commented, “The cutest day ever!!!!! [three red heart emojis].”

James proposed to Raquel just over a month ago during a Coachella-themed party aptly dubbed “Rachella.” During the event, James popped the question to Raquel and when she announced their engagement on Instagram a couple of days later, she dished on the evening.

“James proposed at the iconic Empire Polo Fields of ‘RACHELLA’ Friday night… and I said YES! I’m over the Coachella moon,” she wrote in the post’s caption.

Given that Vanderpump Rules is currently in the middle of filming Season 9, chances are pretty high that James and Raquel’s engagement will be included.

Vanderpump Rules is currently on hiatus on Bravo.
