A Grad Party for Claire

Do you think that when you have graduated high school, you would no longer want to be called Clair Bear? Well that’s the prerogative, of an older cousin, to think of her always as a little girl. However, I did just attend her graduation party and it was lovely. So lovely in fact, that I had to take a billion pictures to share for entertainment ideas!

I really have talented family members. I mean, really talented. And although I will spare you the long details of the name of every dish and the respective member of my family who created it; you can rest assured I tasted it.

The desserts were ridiculous!!! In the best way of course.

Claire was able to travel to Europe, and Paris was woven throughout the decor…

Clearly you see a pink theme here. Totes adorbs (that’s the Barbie’s Life in the Dream House talking). Pink was everywhere; Balloons poolside, college-to-be-attending letters, picture ribbons…

The fence was lined with bottles and flowers and pictures of the graduate.

The tree house was adorned with pics and memorabilia…

There were tents with refreshments outside.

Dinner included a lovely salad and pasta bar. And yes dessert was outstanding, but I just have to let you know that my Aunt Leann’s pesto was too, and I will be getting you that recipe… But look at these pink marshmallows and more fun things to dip in the chocolate fondue!

Claire, our newest graduate…

Yes, I took a bad picture of a good picture... but it was so cute! (And sorry, I don't know who to credit for the original!)

Consider this a standing ovation:
