Well, it’s happened. My oldest son is officially graduated from high school.
This is my oldest man-child and now he is ready (hopefully) to enter the “real world”. I couldn’t be more proud. He has been homeschooled all the way from Kindergarten to his Senior Year.
I just wanted to re-cap his party. I wanted to do a car theme since he loves his car – an Acura Integra.
Did you know there is no ideas for car themed parties? Of course, there are ideas for the Disney movie, “Cars”. And a few ideas for children parties for race cars. But nothing for teenagers.
So, here’s what I did:
I hate that I didn’t get a better picture or even close ups of anything but here’s the details:
- The picture on the back wall is a group photo of this year’s graduating class. I had it printed out at Staples on blueprint paper. It was very reasonable, was done quickly and you can upload either black and white photo or color and still get it printed out. If you want to order them, it’s under “Engineering Prints”.
- The frame on the right is an 8×10 shot in a photo matte designed for a 16×20 frame where people can sign around it. I have red, black and blue fine Sharpies in the little metal bucket in front of it. There’s a large red clothespin attached to the bucket so people will notice the pens.
- There’s a set of jumper cables arranged under the frame and hanging off the side of table.
- At the front of the table is another framed photo of the graduating class in their cap and gowns and his diploma in the leather case.
- I took a set of 6 plastic cups that had graduating motifs on them and made them into a pyramid.
- In the middle back is an older toolbox that I spray painted chrome. People placed cards and small presents inside. Wooden numbers “2015”, painted red, are propped up inside the cover.
- The right side of the table has a tire. In the middle of the tire, there’s a galvanized bucket for more cards.
- There’s a red “C”, a window squeeze, some chamis cloths and other car props arranged on the table.
- A few containers of bubbles were scattered on the table.
- The gift bags were actual gifts from some of the guests.
Hopefully, tomorrow, I can find a picture that someone took of the dessert table that my “partner in crime” Jenny and I did. It was yummy!!
