Graduation {Party!}

June 26th, 2012 § 6 comments

This year I had the honor of making a wonderful new friend at school, Vanessa {seen above!}.  She kept me sane during long days in the library, attended all my impromptu dinner parties, danced Salsa with me on Saturday nights, and stood by me through the crazy final months of university.

In the end, it only seemed fitting that we should throw our graduation party together!!  So throw we did. Here’s a roundup of some details from the amazing evening we spent with our amazing friends and families from around the world.

{Our back porch was transformed with twinkling lights and hundreds of flowers}

{Cocktails were served with my favorite striped paper straws}

{Lovely friends enjoyed drinks and chats picnic style as the warm sun set}

{DIY gold dot/striped paper bunting flags lined the porch railing}

{My favorite people were in attendance – including my amazing mom (R) and dear friend Leslie}

{I loved listening to conversations take place in German (Vanessa is from Germany!), Danish and English throughout the evening}

{We served drinks from mason jars with personalized DIY name flags – just a little washi tape, paper and a marker, et voila!}

{My mom made an incredible spread of food for the event, but I was partial to the gluten-free peanut butter cookies. I must have eaten at least 5!}

{My favorite part of the night? Big smiles on every last friend and loved one. This face in particular is quite heartwarming!}


I wish you could have been there loves!! It was one of the best nights of my life.
