GRADUATION PARTY PLANNING


Getting ready for your graduation party? Last year I had so much fun getting ready for my graduation party! The school colors of the college I attend have dark red so we went with white, gold, black, and dark red decorations. Today I am sharing my graduation party check list!

Save the Date
Hopefully you have already picked a date and notified everyone of the date of your Graduation Party, this way people will not have conflicting plans with your graduation party. If you haven't sent them out yet, do so immediately!

Invitations
I used Shutterfly in order to create my Graduation Party invitations and they turned out super well! These adorable Graduation invitations are what I used they have super cute scallops with gold lettering. Make sure to be sending out invitations ASAP!

Decorations
When planning your decorations it's important to choose a color palette, I chose dark red, gold, black, and white. We had as many flowers as possible around for decorations, these were great because they still looked great around our house after the party! We chose lots of dark red and white flowers which looked beautiful. I picked up these super cute CONGRATULATIONS balloons from target and place two red flowers on either side for a cute photo area in front of our pool. Target had super great Graduation decorations so be sure to check them out! I also got white lanterns and hung white Christmas lights around the tent we had outside, which look super cute at night!

Seatting
We got a large white tent for the main area of the party. I used all dark red table cloths for tables for people to sit at. Then each table had 2 citronella candles and a bouquet of white hydrangeas in mason jars with dark red ribbons tied around them. It would also be a great idea to just get a plant for each table as a little center piece because then you can use them after too. I also put a small table in the corner and used a small chalkboard sign to write gifts on it. Then I got a cute graduation cap shaped card box, also from Target.

Food & Buffet
For food we had a dessert table and did all different types of pie, it was amazing! I love create desserts. I used white table cloths for the buffet to make it stand out. Then got this cool chalkboard runner from target and wrote the name of each dish out along the table on both sides. At the end we had a small table with 3 different types of drinks. We got these huge Mason jar drink dispensers and used a chalkboard to label the 3 different drinks. We had pink lemonade, iced tea, and lemonade with strawberries. We also got the essentials: plastic silverware, dinner and dessert plates, cups, and napkins. Another great thing we got were throw away pie servers to have for all of the different types of pies.

Entertainment
For entertainment at the Graduation party we installed a volleyball net, we have an in ground pool so that provided entertainment, ping pong, and a bon fire. We also have surround sound at our pool which was right by where we had the tent so we were able to play music there. We also got supplies for a S'Mores station for at night which was super yummy. This included Hershey chocolate, Reese's, marshmallows, and graham crackers.

COLLEGE GROCERY STAPLES

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …

THE COZIEST THERMAL FOR WINTER

Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!
