Graduation Party Ideas – "A Bright Future" {guest feature}

Looking for the perfect theme for your graduation party?  How about focusing on “A Bright Future” and incorporate light bulbs into the decor!  Paula of Frog Prince Paperie designed this table and printables (also available in red & black) to give you some ideas for a graduation party.  Just look at all the cute details…
Paula found the light bulb candy containers at Hobby Lobby and added real light bulbs around the table.  A few symbols of graduation like pirouette cookies tied with fruit candy strips to look like diplomas, mortarboard “hats” to top the push pop containers, lollipops molded into “2011”, and of course decorated cookies help convey the celebration of the day.  Great Tip: you don’t have to use the cupcake push pops only for cupcakes.  Fill them with other candies for a cute presentation as well!
You can find all of the Graduation printables in the Frog Prince Paperie etsy shop.

    I love the lightbulbs, and the polka dot garland, is that paint chips? This is what I was thinking to do for my daughters Kai-Lan party, but I want to get a flower punch for the chips! Or maybe a lantern one?!
