:: Party Time - graduation party

Last week I had a surprise graduation party for the husband.
Was he surprised?
Not exactly sure.
I accidently left facebook on {uggghhhhh.  for one second! I swear!} which showed the invite,
he saw it, didn't see which day,
and I was able to convince him that it was a few days later - - so he better act surprised.
So, little did he know that my "clothing swap party" that I was "planning"
 was really his graduation party.

We had a lot of people show up and all had a ton of fun!

I mainly used what I had or borrowed a few things.
Here's the rundown.

-used this DIY chalkboard that I made a few years back, as part of the backdrop
- used his textbooks {that are now worth, literally, pennies! sniff sniff}
as part of the backdrop
- borrowed the white plates from a friend
- made these washi tape flags {washi tape was the only thing I bought - easy tutorial coming soon}

For the goodies, I just had cookies and milk.
{we had much more . . . I took these photos the day after, cause I ran out of time to do it before
the party . . . and look how many leftovers I still had!}

Yay for graduation parties!
That is definitely something to celebrate.

Have a great weekend!

I will be linking this to these linking parties here.
