When my client approached me to assist with her sons graduation, she wanted to surprise him with the overall theme, his love and passion-FOOTBALL! I had so many ideas run through my mind on what style I wanted this party to be. I wanted something mature, classy yet sporty at the same time and also using the graduates school colors and mascot!
I set the entrance with an amazing 3.5ft tall helmet by Hand Made For You- she does amazing wood cutouts and I cannot get over how amazing she is! All of my centerpieces were made with real football items like footballs, helmets and lots of grass! I used Create Ur Plates for guests to enjoy their dinner and really get a feel for a fully custom party. I created mini picture confetti images of the graduate throughout the tables.
I tried for the first time using Guestbook Stores album and it was such a hit! I used my Instax mini which these credit card sized pictures were the perfect size to add to the guest book. I loved how this was customized to the graduates name and event date with some really sweet questions for guests to answer.
For my dessert table I contacted Bellaria Bakery to create some stand up cookies along with the ends that match the school logo and mascot, she did such an amazing job with these! I added some cute football cake pops by Jaya Jolie’s Confections over some clear acrylic stands with books and a football! For the first time I added brigadeiro to our dessert table in Coconut and Lemon, they were delicious, such a cute sweets addition for a dessert table in which the way they are displayed is how she provided these to me!
I truly enjoyed styling this lucky grads party-best of luck and congrats to Jacob!
