This week on the blog, Danielle will share some fun details from Grace’s Graduation Party this past weekend!
This high school graduation party looked like it was pulled straight out of Pinterest! So many little details went into the planning and we loved seeing it all come together!
The party was held at the family’s gorgeous home in Sardinia, Ohio. They utilized an existing shelter on their property and also rented a tent to hold tables and chairs for their guests.
We loved the black and gold color combo, her high school colors! We kept it clean and simple with a white linen, while adding a stunning black and white striped runner with gold polka dots. The centerpieces had photos of Grace growing up which added a nice personal touch for their guests.
Guests got to enjoy homemade BBQ made by Grace’s Uncle and for dessert- cake, cupcakes, and homemade buckeyes for the OSU bound graduate.
Talk about details... even the silverware was rolled up to look like a diploma- love it!
And for cake stands, we used some of Grace's favorite board games to really show her personality!
What's a backyard party without a bonfire and s’mores station?! We even included a s'mores menu, complete with everything needed to make a tasty treat!
oh.. and party favors! The grad gave her guests the ultimate candy bar with treat bags to take some home! Notice each candy was labeled with fun names like "so long SUCKERS!"
We're not done yet! All of the details of this party are just too good not to share! For her guest book, we created a polaroid photo station. Guests could snap a photo, put it in the scrapbook and leave a note for Grace to look back on for years to come!
One of our favorite elements of the party was the design of the bar! We used 2 large hay bales along with different sized galvanized tubs to hold all their drinks. Top it off with a "Cheers" banner and our bar was complete!
Finally, we can’t forget to mention the giant blow up pirate ship slide that was a huge hit for not only the children, but the adults too! They also loved the Giant Jenga, Yardzee & Volleyball!
The rain held off for the party and it was such a lovely evening to celebrate with Grace, her family & friends! We wish her all the best as she starts her journey at OSU!
If you are hosting a party or event this summer, Simply Events would love to help you plan, design and coordinate!
