Graduation Party I helped out with...
Table Center Peices
These are the pictures of my mother in laws graduation party that I helped out with.... First lets start out with the dessert table, I made the cake, the lemon bars (ha ha the lemon bars have a sprig of mint on them for garnish that should take care of my herb week right?), anyway I also did the fruit/dip tray, the brownies, all the floral arrangements and all the signs. I wish I had a betterpicture of the table center
pieces...they were really beautiful, the flowers were red and yellow garden roses
with daises, the paper lanterns were glowing on a round mirror with 4 votive
candles with rose petals in them surrounding each lantern. (the only picture I have really sucks!)
Graduation a sweet sensation.
The signs were so easy and cheap to
make, I went to the dollar store and got 2 rolls of shelf liner/tack paper, then
I took some frames I had around the house and removed the pictures and glass
and I covered the back boards with the tack paper. The rest was on the
computer, for the pictures of the frames I just googled boarders, I found a
that I liked then I tweaked them quite a bit on Microsoft. For the
silhouette of the graduate girl I took several silhouette images and cropped
them and put them all together...it was actually really fun. All I had to do
after that was click print, then cut out each frame, then tape them on the tack
paper. I almost forgot I also did 3 batches of my garlic twisted bread
sticks to go with the AMAZING Italian dinner my sister in laws made (sorry I have no pics-it was really really good though). For all the work that went into it I think it turned out great!
