Shabby Chic Graduation Party

 Hi Peeps!  I know I haven't posted much over the last few weeks ~ sorry about that!  It's been a very crazy time in our lives with the end of the school year, having a senior, graduation, and a graduation party.  My daughter wanted to have a Shabby Chic theme to her party and I was very happy to make decorations with her for it!  We came up with all kinds of fun things to make and have been working on projects for the last 6 weeks.  We were both thrilled with how everything turned out!

Here are some of the items we made... a suitcase for the cards, decorated tins for napkins and forks.

Decorated canning jars for centerpieces.  I scanned and printed music from the pieces she played each year of marching band and used it on the jars and coasters under the jars.

We found this beautiful bird cage and used it for Advice Cards that people could fill out for her.

I purchased lots of burlap, lace, and flowers to complete our projects.

Here is the Cupcake and Cookie Bar with a decorated sign and cookie jars for each flavor of cookie. 

You can't have a cookie bar without frosting and sprinkles!

Super yummy cupcakes with matching frosting and pearls.

Megan made this awesome sign so our guests would know where to enter.

Megan also made a sign with "My Plans" to tell people what she has planned next fall.  We also included travel items (the globe & card suitcase) because she plans on traveling and elements of music (her flute & sheet music) because of her love of playing.

Megan made the beautiful fabric garland for the windows, our staircase and the band table.  We ripped hundreds of pieces of fabric and trimmed yarn and lace and she attached it to jute.

The table below is her band table.  I was pretty excited because I finished all FOUR years of Marching Band scrapbooks just in time for the party.

Here is her academic table with her school & sports scrapbooks, NHS, homecoming sash, school letters, honor cords & grad hat, and her prized possession ~ her plaque as Academic Top Ten at graduation with a photo of her with her favorite teacher.

She picked favorite photos and attached them to jute with small clothes pins.

more photos and scrapbooks from her first two years.

the menu sign I made and hung in the kitchen ~
I trimmed the letters from some of her sheet music that I scanned.

Outside decorations...

Oh Kendra! Everything is just beautiful! How fun that the two of you created all of this together. Precious memories for sure! The last photo brought a tear to my eye and I've never "met" her, but feel that I know her from reading your blog all these years! Congratulations Megan! Enjoy each moment as the time will fly!

Kendra, you did an amazing job with Megan's graduation party and decorations. She will remember your efforts for the rest of her life. You certainly honored Meg's many accomplishments and highlighted her future plans. I'm sorry I couldn't come to the party. I had to work. This is my busy season when I work 60 hour weeks registering freshmen. I actually had to work last Saturday...and this Saturday. Anyway, please pass along my best wishes to Megan! Its so hard to believe she's a high school graduate. Love and miss you! Michelle
