The middle of the week is here already! I’ve been pretty lazy this week — just resting up after my niece’s big graduation party this past weekend. We had the best time and MyDadLovesMeBestSister had a wonderful party for the newly minted graduate.
The weeks around graduations here in the states are just crazy. Everyone has a party for their graduate and everyone party hops until they’ve turned into pumpkins. Having to squish your party in among all the rest is a challenge, so MyDadLovesMeBestSister decided to have a party that didn’t include lunch or dinner, but was right in the middle — Cupcakes, Coffee and Ice Cream. It was a BIG hit. Huge! Lots of my niece’s friends said it was their favorite party. What’s not to love?
MyDadLovesMeBestSister had a barista there to make all sorts of coffee drinks — hot and iced. My younger niece and her friend scooped ice cream for the guests to make their own sundaes. And then there were all those cuppiecakes. Sadly, I didn’t take pictures of the cupcake bar until there was a big dent in the pile, but you get the idea. (I used Martha Stewart’s little cupcake flags and SweetiePie did most of the cupcake frosting. Didn’t she do a great job?) I thought it was pretty funny that the pink ones weren’t as fast to go as the other colors. What’s wrong with pink???
Every detail of the party was stunning. Absolutely gorgeous! The flowers were breathtaking (check out those lime flowers — swoon!) In addition to the florist bouquets, there were a bunch of canning jar centerpieces that held gerbera daisies and paint brushes. My niece plans to study art in college — how cute is that? And in a fun twist of events, the colors my sister chose matched the quilt I’d made my niece. Look at all the pretty tablecloths she whipped up from quilter’s cottons.
Yum Yummy. I want to go back and see it all again. My sister sure knows how to throw a party!
Next Up — My BESTEST Auntie from Utah arrives tonight — I’m soooo excited!!!
