PARTY DETAILS, as told by Cris

I styled this Graduation dessert table using the Grad’s school colors orange and navy blue. Amanda’s Parties To Go has a new Graduation Set that can be customized using any school colors. I created the dramatic and colorful backdrop by wrapping foam board with blue paper, navy blue and  orange tissue fans from Oriental Trading and embellished the fans using cupcake circles from the printable set. I purchased the paper mache numbers at Hobby Lobby and sprayed paint them orange. I used my candle holders to display the numbers on my dessert table. As for sweets, we served diplomas (swiss rolls), fruit cups, diplomas cake pops from Evie and Mallow, marshmallow pops by Maria’s Crafts, Hershey’s chocolate bars, Hershey’s kisses,chocolate cornered pretzels, a variety of candy and caramel popcorn. Guests took home Jordan Almonds wrapped in orange tulles. The table setting was decorated with pendants and caps from the printable set.
