Madison's Graduation Celebration

Pin It
Hi there!  Did you miss me?  I sure have missed you all!
Sorry for the delay in new posts, but we have had a lot going on in our family.
I won't go into any details, but I am so glad to have some sense of normalcy back in our life.

I can't wait to share Madison's graduation with you all.
Hold on, this is going to be a long one :)

We are so proud of our girl and all of her accomplishments! 
Graduation day was perfect.  Sunny and warm :)
Here she is receiving her diploma from Mr. Walk, her school principal.

Yay - she did it!

Proud mom and dad :)

We actually held her party the evening before graduation day so she would have time to attend all of her friends parties too.  The party colors were aqua, red and white.  Love that combination!
Thanks to all of my family and friends that helped to pull her party together!  We love you all!!

Of course she had to have a dress to match the party colors :)

Here's the beverage station.  I <3 mason jars!

It's not a party without cupcakes!
A friend and I designed the cupcake toppers.
Thanks Pat :)

Don't you just love my aqua ladder of cupcakes!
I spray painted it with Rustoleum Blue Lagoon from Home Depot.
I was so happy the way it turned out.

We had so much food! 
I will share some of those recipes with you over the next few posts.
Lots of tasty stuff! 
Well, hope you enjoyed the glimpse of Madison's celebration. 
She's moving onto campus at James Madison University in the fall. 
Then we will be empty nesters.  Yikes!

  5. Congratulations to the graduate girl. I really liked the party arrangements. Hope everyone enjoyed it. Last month my niece graduated and I threw her a party at one of LA event venues. Took ideas from internet and was very happy to make the day enjoyable.
