Graduation Party {throwback & ideas}

Graduation Party Anchors and Pearls

So its officially graduation party season! I wanted to post a little throwback to my graduation party last year! I had my party with a good friend who was heading off to the University of Arizona (which  conveniently has the same school colors as Ole Miss). Her family has some property with a big shed so we had the party there. We had cookies and cupcakes decked out with our school logos, our monograms, and some cute chevron and polka dots. We had an ice cream bar where people could choose their ice cream flavor and toppings. We had lemonade and water, in monogramed water bottles, but we ran out of water bottles so if you're planning a grad party don't underestimate how much water you need! 

We hung a frame from poles outside to make a Photo Booth and made cute cutouts as props. We had a table set up with jars for each of us where people could write favorite memories with us, or words of wisdom. Aside from our deserts, we had mini versions of our favorite foods for people to snack on {grilled cheese, mac & cheese, and chicken tenders.} Everything was red and blue including our dresses! Funny side note, we ended up wearing the same dress because we both loved it and it matched so perfectly with all of our decorations! Our party was so much fun and we were so happy with how it turned out so I wanted to share it, I hope I could provide some ideas for people planning graduation parties now!

We had a bunch of pictures and scrapbooks set up with other memories (state dance team medals etc.) on tables too.
