Beach Themed Graduation Party

Beach Themed Graduation Party

My darling niece Emily graduated from high school and I designed a rustic beach theme for her party.  I converted an old shipping crate into a backdrop for the buffet and painted it with washed out beach colors.  I used burlap for a table runner, galvanized steel, seashells and driftwood accents.  I made starfish stands and scattered them throughout the buffet and drink table and placed hydrangeas in galvanized steel vases for an informal look.  I found scrapbook paper that looked like burlap and made a banner for the buffet and drink area.  We used mason jars for the drinks with pretty blue striped straws.  I converted a shade tent into a photo booth and bought muslin and used velcro to secure the fabric to the shade tent.  I used felt for the banner and bought some decorations to hang in the back of the booth.  We had a basket full of fun props for the kids to use and had fun taking pictures of everyone.  We served grilled salmon with mango salsa, French potato salad with fresh herb vinaigrette, baby greens with strawberries, candied pecans, feta cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette, grilled asparagus, and pasta salad with sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts.  There were so many friends and family there and I hope she knows how much she is loved and admired for all of her accomplishments.  Click here for more information….
