Here is a cute party idea. The cake was made by our daughter four years ago. Time really does fly by!  …………….

This would be great for a high school or college graduation party.

This dreamy backdrop is easy to recreate.  Just use black plastic tablecloths on the walls and paint starts on them.  Place a silver two-inch candle in a fish bowl and add clear glass pebbles (found at Dollar Tree or Walmart) in the bottom of the bowl.  Cover the table with a black tablecloth, add a white paper placemat (placemats found at party stores).  Letters for the word “dream” can be found at hobby shops and then painted black,

Themes for graduation parties can be fun to implement.  This was at the Senior Dinner for the seniors in the youth group where we go to church.  They just borrowed some silk plants and cute signs, but you can always go to Hobby Lobby to find cute signs if necessary.  (This was two years ago when our son graduated from high school. Wow, time goes by so fast!)

One of the teachers where I teach just recently completed her master’s degree.  Congratulations, Melissa!  We celebrated at our monthly pot luck, and another teacher made these adorable cupcakes that were so delicious!  Great job, Holly!


The graduation cap is made by placing a Reese’s Miniature Peanut Butter Cup upside down in the middle of the cupcake and then placing a chocolate square (high quality chocolate like Ghirardelli – yum!) on top. I think she used a little bit of icing to “glue” the chocolate on top of the Reese’s.  Then make the tassel with a small candy like M&M’s Minis and use the tube gel icing to complete it.  So cute!  Great for any age of graduate from kindergarten to college!
(PS Thanks Alan!)
