My younger sister Deborah is graduating high school this Saturday. I feel like it was just yesterday (when, in fact, it was 2003) that I graduated. How time flies!
For the reception after the graduation, I made a cutout paper garland with each of the graduate’s names (inspired by this Peter Pan Party). The color scheme is blue + silver and the theme is “reach for the stars”.
Her class is very small (18 graduates) so the garland was manageable (although it did take two people – thanks Christina – a good 4+ hours to draw and cut out the letters!)…
Here are some pictures of the process and semi-final product.
I put the garlands (when I took the pics I still had a few garlands to make) up in my mom’s living room to take these pics – the actual reception is in a larger, less inviting room (school cafeteria) – I hope the garlands help to make the reception room cozier!
I definitely want to try these out again…maybe using lyrics or quotes next time.
Have a wonderful weekend, lovelies!
