After countless nights of no sleep due to studying, my good friend, Niki and I decided that we deserved to throw ourselves a huge celebration in honor of our Graduation from nursing school. I was in charge of the party planning, and this is what I came up with. I didn't get a lot of pictures of all of the beautiful food that we prepared, but the decorations turned out lovely if I do say so myself :)
The Desert Table. I made the cupcake stands out of foam presentation boards that I cut up and hot glued together. I then used ribbon along the edges to add some extra detail.
Fruit Skewers. This was very time consuming what they turned out beautifully, and were a big hit.
Veggie and Cheese Skewers.
Peanut butter balls (or buckeyes). I used scrapbook paper to add accents to the table.
Happy Pills (Jelly Bellies)
Red Velvet Cake Pops.
Chocolate chip "kiss" cookies.
Margarita glasses. We had a couple of volunteers that made us margaritas all night long.
Table centerpieces that I made from these little white cases from hobby lobby, and some scrapbook stickers.
HAPPY PILLS. I ordered a bunch of prescription bottles on Ebay, spray painted the lids in my desired colors, then used microsoft word to create the labels. I used photo paper and got the labels to stick using hot glue. Then, I filled each one with jelly belly jelly beans.
I got these letters from Hobby Lobby and spray painted them. These pictures were then placed on our gift table with a basket placed next to each one to keep our cards and gifts separated.
The invitations were a lot of fun to make. I made the nurse icon in Microsoft Word, using the shapes and shape fill options. It took a while to get the desired result, but I love how they turned out. I also used my little nurse on the food labels.
I absolutely loved putting this party together, and we had a great night of celebrating our success.
