party hearty

Summer has officially started, with school ending last week and the temperatures creeping into the 80s and 90s. We started our summer off with a bang, celebrating my brother's graduation party on Saturday. The weather was perfect, the food was plentiful, and the decorations were lovely.
My brother's favorite color is green so we decided to have a green/blue color combo for the party- classic summer colors. My mom and I dreamed up the party details and many family members came together to execute the plans. Here's what we ended up with:
Festive paper flowers suspended over the laden dessert table. 


Craft paper flags galore adorning most windows, some with words, some plain.
Little vignettes that my mom created, even in the "non-party" rooms. 
Matt's high school memory board proudly on display. 
A green, yellow, and blue balloon garland swaging the area around the pool. 

A dessert table to satisfy all appetites. 
My brother's love of reading and plans to major in English set the ton for this particular table. 
Matthew's former love of Winnie-the-Pooh was evident in the beautiful graduation cakes my mom baked. My dad constructed the bridge from one cake to the other about an hour before the party.
These little graduation hat took a painfully long time to make, but added to the buffet of desserts. 

The party was so much fun and the perfect way to usher in yet another summer!
