Congratulations, Nick!

PLANNING the perfect party is no easy feat. Especially college graduation parties. Yes, you could opt for a keg and that'd be the end of the story, but how do you make it fun, festive, and so unforgettable that a barrel of booze won't wash away the memories? Get some ideas from the graduation party I threw for Nick.

The tablescape:

I concocted delicious blue and yellow cocktails for Nick's school colors.

COCKTAILS

Since Nick is a vegetarian, we made these veggie wraps that were fashioned to resemble diplomas. Tough luck, carnivores!

Perfect for summer eatin': an easy cheese, cucumber, and cracker platter, and hollowed out bell peppers stuffed with spinach and artichoke hummus.

The dessert stand was loaded with caramel grad caps and bite-sized lemon bars.

I had so much fun making these caramel-filled grad caps. You can even eat the tassel too!

All the balloons were popped before we had the chance to snap some photos, but they were put to good use, aka a World Cup match with balloons. ;-) Below are some hand cut letters and streamers that remained in tact:

Congratulations, graduates!
