It's an honor to help set up for this beach themed graduation and 18th birthday party.

gift box and 18 roses for Nikki
A friend of Nikki's family gave them 4 wood pallets.
They were able to sand and stain them
and assembled the 4 pallets on site.
We strung some Christmas lights from Ikea
on the back of the pallets and since we couldn't hang
paper lanterns on the ceiling,
I scattered them on the floor instead.

Congratulations and a Happy 18th Birthday!

Nautical Baby Shower

4.30.16 || Earlier today, we had a Nautical Baby Shower for Baby Z. Baby Z is due early June and we cannot wait to meet him. I've always liked a classic nautical theme and was very happy that Baby Z's mommy wanted a nautical shower when we started talking about her shower back in October. She loved this theme so much that all three of her showers were nautical in nature, but the cool thing is that each of her showers were still all very unique.

Luau Luncheon

4.27.16 || April 27th is Administrative Professionals' Day and we are blessed with an awesome front office staff at school who are always willing to help us no matter how much we interrupt them on a daily basis. So on behalf of Social Committee and the rest of the Fine peeps I work with, we bring them a Luau Luncheon...since we really can't afford to fly them all to Hawaii :)
