JHS Graduation Party

We had a simple party to celebrate our son's graduation from Junior high.

It was a joint party with one of our close friend's daughter who also graduated from the same school.
I was glad it was or I wouldn't have been able to pull this of. 
I needed to come up with decorations that were easy to set-up and remove since we were to decorate only on the morning of the party and leave by 2pm (it was a lunch party).

So here's what we came up with....

Cake Table without the cake yet...
I came up with black and gold color scheme since there was really no standard school colors. Uniforms were red, blue, white and yellow.

I displayed pictures of my son in different ages using gold frames that I already had
Also displayed a framed class picture that stated what his classmates thought of him!

Cake and Gift Table

Simple Photo Cake

Simple Table centerpiece
Basically the table was set up with a balloon centerpiece we made, some gold Christmas balls and metallic gold and silver piggy banks that were the give-aways.

Closer look
We used 30" balloons, spray-painted clearance Easter tin baskets I scored from Target, spray-painted PVC pipe, ribbons and styrofoam to mount the whole thing.

Finished room

It was a very fun day but most importantly we were able to celebrate this young man's achievements...


Hope you have a Great Week!
