Hello! It's been a while since I've posted on this little blog...lots going on this past month. But, school is out, summer is almost here (still have to finish packing up a few things in my classroom), and I'm looking forward to more crochet time and hitting the bike trails.
Almost a year ago, I post about a few blue and yellow doilies I was making; I had a 'vision' of how I wanted to use them at my son's graduation party. Well, we had his graduation party this past weekend, so I thought I'd give an update those blue and yellow beauties.
I made six flower pots...took a 6 inch terra cotta flower pot, painted it white, adhered pictures with Mod Podge, and added a dowel with a title. I had a theme for each one: graduation, speech, etc. that related to activities my son did during high school. They turned out really neat.
Here's a photo of a little corner of my yard. I put citronella candles in mason jars...more for atmosphere than bugs, really! I thought the little candles looked pretty lit around the yard.
I used a vintage suitcase for cards...a Pinterest idea that's been around for a while. This picture was taken on my kitchen table after the event, so the lighting is bad...sorry! The suitcase and doilies gave a little vintage look to the party. ; )
The day was fun...it's always great to celebrate your kids, isn't it???
I hope to be back with more soon...in the meantime, thanks for checking in!
