Graduation party inspiration

I’ve mentioned that my only baby is graduating HS.  Where does the time go?? when I look at here even today I see this little girl  jkindgerartengrad2000

J circa 2000 Kindergarten graduation

but this is what she really looks like now loljsenioritis Yes it say’s “Worst case of SENIORITIS”  but she won so we were a very happy family (that’s us below) we were on our way to the Senior’s Dinner go CLASS OF 2013IMG_3937anyway discussion on what kind of party to have are still under way…
I’ve dreamt about an outdoor party and tent’s & BBQ food. Lot’s of happy people sitting around enjoying a beautiful summer day. Even though not everyone enjoys summer as much as the next guy, I guess.  Case in point both J & my honey prefer AC full blast at all times.  Ughhhhhhhh where did that child come from??
back to the outdoor party idea shall we?  this is what our yard looks like and my idea for setting it up for a party
IMG_3565    Here are the two side yards on left & right of house..That’s my CoCo down there always in the mix…
bothsideyards There is a great party rental supply co Hodge’s local to us that I have used before…
so this is how i was picturing the yard set up for party would look

but both my honey & J are against an outdoor party and are looking into halls as they would much rather prefer an indoor party with air-conditioning and with temperatures now in the high 80 and were only in spring still I might have to agree with them {I said might don’t hold me to it}.
But I also have these wonderful visions of decorating the tables with all my lovely white milk glass.  which is why I have been collecting so fiercely.  I have about 37 small vases right now and was thinking how pretty would they look as center pieces on the tables.  A friend mentioned I might have to put signs up stating the center pieces are not to go lol and I just might…see some pinterst inspiration

So that’s the plan in my mind right now and time’s a ticking we have less than 3 wks for party.  Come back end of June to see how it turned out…
