Grad Party

 My oldest son graduated from high school this year and had a double career path in business and computers so I wanted to celebrate  his accomplishments!
 It was an Open House dessert party so it was very casual as people stopped by to congratulate him and wish him well. I bought the famous tea cakes from Martino's Bakery in Burbank. When I was little, ALL of my birthday cakes came from Martino's!
 I also made cake pops and the dessert signs are made from clipboards from the Dollar Tree and I just Mod Podged coordinating paper onto it.
 These great sparkler candles are from Fancy Flours.

 For the drinks, I served lemonade and water served in mason jars. Guests were able to write their name on a mini chalkboard label.

 For the centerpieces, I just covered Matt's beloved Harry Potter books in brown kraft paper and tied with baker's twine.

 I also made the tassels for the 36" balloons. I had made about a 4' length of tassels but they weighed down the balloon too much!

 I made a paper lantern chandelier out of different size lanterns and paper poms.

 I got all of the great printables from Amanda's Parties To Go.
 I also used the printables to decorate a card box from Oriental Trading.

 Matthew and his special guest- Miss Sharie, his preschool teacher!
It was nice to celebrate a happy occasion since my mom died on Memorial day after a 4 year battle with ovarian cancer, Matt graduated the next day and then his party was on Saturday. I'm glad I got a lot of the ordering and decor done the week before.
