Desserts to Celebrate a Diploma
Two years ago, my friend Kim asked me if I would create a dessert table for her son's graduation in May of 2014. Now THAT is an organized mom! I remember thinking... that's 2 years away, surely she'll change her mind or forget?
No chance. Kim & I have been making plans for months now and the big graduation party was Saturday. Here are some photos of the sweet, celebratory spread.
Alex, the graduate, picked out all of his favorite candies during a trip we took to the Nifty Nut House - gummy candies, Nic-L-Nip wax candy bottles, chocolate coins, Pop Rocks, Sixlets, licorice, and Dove chocolates. He graduated from The Independent School of Wichita and he'll be attending Iowa State in the fall, so we got every candy we could find in these colors: royal blue, white, red and golden yellow. They looked great against a backdrop of black and silver.
In addition to the candy, I baked some vanilla cupcakes and made some yellow-frosted sugar cookies.
And I found some great table decorating ideas with printable graphics from Frog Prince Paperie. I just adjusted the colors and some of the wording to match Alex's table, and added photos of him as well.
Congratulations to all of the graduates this year. May your futures be sweet and colorful!
