~graduation party planning~{part 1}

We have a senior in the house!
This has been such a stressful year to say the least. 
Looking at and touring colleges, applications, testing, traveling, etc.
I had no idea how much work it is!
Not only is it work for us, but it's even more work for our daughter Savannah.

We are so proud of her.
She has been accepted to the 5 colleges she applied too.
She still has not decided which one, but the deadlines are approaching.

To keep things from getting to serious, we have been planning her graduation party and having so much fun doing so.

I have to say, Savannah and I are pretty much best friends, and this party planning with her has been so much fun!

We decided to host the party at our house, in our yard. It will be in June so I am hoping for sun.
If not, we will have to bring in tents.

The first thing up was to create her announcements.
We knew I wanted Minted to create them, they truly are the best in my opinion.
The quality is great, there are a ton of options to choose from, the shipping is fast, and the service is impeccable. I also have to say the fact that they print the address' on for you had me sold. 

Savannah chose these gorgeous ones by Lauren Chism, and these stamps.

I am in love!

The backside has another photo and a personal message from her.

We also ordered save the date cards through Minted.
These are the ones we chose, by Sara Hicks Malone.

And onto the invitations to the party, we ordered these 
by hooray creative,
with sparkly gold liners!
{Savannah loves sparkles!}

We did custom stamps on those too with the word Grad on them.

They were just all shipped out and I feel so relieved, one thing off the checklist!
The party is is June and I promise to update more of the planning and progress, as well as some DIY ideas as we go along.

Until next time.....

A scary yet fun time in life for sure. Looking forward to seeing the DIY's and how you decorate for the party. I find throwing parties at home can be difficult if you are trying to theme the party. Often my themes don't flow with my home decor.

Such a pretty picture and invites. I have a Senior too! Still waiting for a couple of college responses - April Fools Day is supposedly the day! My son is having a dual grad party with one of his best friends since 1st grade. They figured they know all the same people from grade and high school so why not. I think it will be fun! Must really be enjoyable to have a girl that is into all the details :)

I can't wait to see your ideas for the party! I'm in the same boat but I'm slacking on planning stuff. Yikes, it's coming up so quickly!
