A few more party ideas...

My family and I attended a Confirmation party today, and it was just lovely. These ideas came straight from my friend Val, who put on a lovely party... These fruit skewers were made the night before, and she used the oasis that absorbed water. She loaded the oasis, soaked the skewers themselves in water, and then added the fruit. They stayed good overnight, and there was no rush the day of the party. Aren't they beautiful? She had them next to the chocolate fountain, and when we left, not a flower was left...

Recognize these beauties? Gotta love friends that share...Margaret and Jen--we both owe you!
Val's daughter Paige made this beautiful shadow box display. Following in her mother's shoes, of course...

This was the coolest thing. Each box said something about Paige, and it was on display at her school, along with the other students. I am totally inspired to do one of these now...
Val created this beautiful display by printing out Paige's statement of faith along with the party invitation. It was on the dessert table, and everyone stopped to read it. Beautiful touch!
Thanks for a wonderful day--we love you guys!

My friend Rita sent me a link to share this for those of you in the throws of baby showers. Totally adorable and unique ideas!! Thanks, Rita!

More graduation and party ideas coming in the next few weeks. If you have one that you'd like to share, please email me at Turay413@gmail.com. I'd love to post it!!

Happy Monday!
