I'm so excited to share the pictures of Queen Bee's graduation party. It was a wonderful event, filled with people who love her and have been a support and inspiration to her. It was a time for her dad and me to celebrate the amazing girl she is and all of her accomplishments. Can you tell we are super proud of her? The quote pictured above on her graduation announcement was the inspiration for the theme of the party. Queen Bee has an adventurous spirit and a enormous heart. She has already traveled quite a bit, including participating in a humanitarian program to build a kindergarten classroom last summer in Fiji. And she plans on continuing to travel abroad and help those less fortunate while pursuing her college education. I wanted her party to reflect her and the hopes and dreams she has for the future. She also has her mother's love for anything vintage and retro, so I wanted to have a playful retro vibe to the decor.
Here are all the details for where I found the things I used to create the party. For the items I found on Amazon, you can click on the link in the sidebar for more information. On our buffet tables I used a retro globe from Dot and Bo. I fell in love with these darling bright retro suitcases I found on Amazon. I also used some vintage cameras and cake plates from my collections. The globe and suitcases were the jumping off point for the color scheme of the party so I was thrilled to find these darling Meri Meri Charms and Stripes Hanging Pinwheels that I mixed with these Meri Meri Toot Sweet Pinwheels, they were the perfect combo of colors. The tiered chip server was from Target and I lined it with gingham printed waxed paper from World Market. Finally, throughout the party, I used scrabble letters to spell out words related to travel.
