Around the World Graduation Party

This party was truly a labor of love. Once I decided my family would throw my oldest son a graduation party, I need to come up with a theme. Choosing a theme for a young man was no easy task, but after throwing around several different theme ideas, we decided on Around the World Graduation Party. In the past, he has expressed his love for travel and what better way to announce a graduation party!

We choose a great color combination — orange and blue. Below are photos of the Around the World theme party that showcases the passport invitation and stationery designed and printed by Creative Outlook Designs.

Several paper products were created for this event — banner, table number cards, tassels, candy bar sign, candy bar tags, cupcake holders, menu card. All the paper stationery designed tied together with the theme nicely.

We also choose to do suitcase table centerpieces. We purchased blank kraft suitcases that we embellished ourselves with vintage stickers and theme scrapbook papers. Each table had its own table number and different theme. Globe, orange and blue balloons were added to each centerpiece.

The cake was done by a local baker, Creative Style Cakes. The cake was not only a work of art but it was delicious! The catering and cupcakes were done by a dear friend PStarr Catering. Look out for PStarr Catering in 2012. She is doing a line of custom couture cupcakes favors and gifts!!!

The party was a huge success!! We not only had fun designing this event — we enjoyed the actual event as well.

Cirque de Bebe Baby Shower

A little over a year ago, friends and I hosted a shower for a party planner who knew about the shower but needed to be surprised with the theme. She just love theme showers! We decided early on that a Cirque de Bebe baby shower would work well for either a boy or girl. We were inspired by the shower showcased on Hostess with the Mostess. As you can see, a lot of paper details were used to help carry out the theme. It was a lot of fun designing the guestbook, popcorn stand, coming up with a menu with PStarr Catering, and of course what started it all was the invitation. The invitation set the tone for the entire event and we carried the theme to the end with the thank you cards. Everyone had a wonderful time especially our guest of honor.
