Anne Hathaway Throws 'Fun' Engagement Party

Anne Hathaway's wedding will take place next year but the actress and fiancée Adam Shulman have already started celebrating with a "fun" engagement party.

The couple celebrated their engagement by hosting a party in New York City that took place in a bookstore last month. Adding to the unique party, were personal touches, including a banquet of vegan food and decorations such as bird-shaped vases filed with Hathaway's favorite flowers- ranunculus and anemones.

A partygoer opened up about the special gathering while speaking to Us Weekly recently.

"Everything was so fun, just like Annie," said the insider.

The "Princess Diaries" star became engaged to Shulman in November last year after dating for three years. The couple is reportedly planning a New York venue for their wedding, but are keeping mum on the details ahead the October 2013 nuptials.

"They're keeping it a secret until right before," divulged the magazine's source.

Hathaway, 29, was named by People magazine as one of its breakthrough stars of 2001. In addition to her role in the "Princess Diaries" series, she is well known for her movies, such as "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Valentine's Day."

The actress also appears in the upcoming film "The Dark Knight Rises," in theaters July 20.

In 2008, Hathaway ended a relationship with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri after he was charged with fraud for fleecing investors out of millions of dollars in a money laundering scheme. She met Shulman shortly after the breakup.

Speaking about her relationship with the actor, Hathaway said her fiancee "ruined" her plans to stay single.

"We hit it off immediately, but it took us a pretty long time to get together," Hathaway told the U.K.'s Marie Claire. "He thought that I had a boyfriend and I thought that he had a girlfriend, so I thought that I'd better keep my distance because I didn't want to be that girl."

"I am very much in love with him," added the actress. "Only Adam totally ruined my plan. I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!"
