Hello my simply sweet family! Welcome back and thank you for joining me once again. So I started this blog to talk about things happening in my life. It is graduation season and I have my second ready to graduate from high school.
With that being said, this moms life is now consumed by caps and gowns, prom dresses and shoes, pictures, invitations, and of course college preparation. On the plan this week is graduation party planning. I always start off planning by coming up with a theme, well that has been simple, graduation. Next I come up with a color scheme, again, simple! My daughter has decided to attend Abilene Christian University, so color scheme will be purple and white. This is also a simply great because my son is attending Prairie View A&M University and his colors were purple and gold. So I have several purple items left from his party. Less to buy and undoubtedly less to do!
Since the color scheme and theme are decided, the next step is decor. I have been thinking of creative ways to use my backyard. Again, another simply sweet idea because we have canopies and a big backyard, so no hunting for a space to hold the party, just hunting for awesome decorating ideas! Looking at ways to decorate a canopy to make it party ready. I found sequined fabric andpuprple tulle to make the canopies pretty and help keep the sun off our guests. My next task is looking for ideas for a beautiful tablescape.
I have been on the hunt around the net looking for inspirations for centerpieces and party favors. Since I make most of the items that are used during my parties, I always start by looking for DIY’s to try. I have narrowed down my choices for centerpieces and have decided on the number of tables so I know now that I will need 10 centerpieces. I have purchased all the supplies and am ready to start assembling the centerpieces. As I make these centerpieces I will post pictures so that you all can see my progress.
Planning this party for my daughter has been very fun and much simpler than my son because I can be frilly, have bling, and cutesy stuff. So I will on my next post show pictures of the centerpieces that I have made.
Again, thank you all for joining me and I look forward to connecting with you again!
Stay blessed, stay happy and most of all stay simply sweet!
