One Down, Two To Go: Graduation 2013

Our oldest son graduated from high school yesterday in a hour long ceremony at the Raleigh Convention Center in the Capital City.  He was 1 of 523 students at his high school to receive this prestigious  honor- a high school diploma.  A lot more students than the 92 I graduated with more than 22 years ago.

My hubby invited family over for a pre-graduation party.  Unfortunately, the timing was horrible because we are installing hardwood floors downstairs. My kitchen looked like this...
and the stove was sitting here...
in the middle of the dining room.  So that meant no cooking for me.  So I quickly put a plan into action because hubby didn't want to call off the "party." We decided to have the party in the graduates bedroom.  He has the bonus room upstairs so it was plenty big. This is what we came up with...
We put up a few decorations outside and enjoyed a pre-graduation party, even with all the banging and slamming downstairs from the installers.
 I made a few party favors for our guests.  Ironically, his high school colors are the same as East Carolina- his college choice for the fall.
The party turned out better than I expected, and so glad that everyone enjoyed their time together for this momentous occasion. 
Enjoy the photos~
