Adios 8th Grade...Hello Summer!

Remember the last few days of middle school? Short school days with no homework and nothing but excitement for what summer had in store for us...ah the memories! 8th grade is coming to an end for my oldest son, so we decided to go out with a splash and invite his closest friends over for an "End of School Year Pool Party".  Middle school (in my day it was called Jr. High) is now behind him and we look onward to HIGH SCHOOL! Yikes!!!!

With his approval, we decided on a beach/surfer theme complete with beach ball paper lanterns, shark cupcakes, surf board cookies and pina colada cupcakes.  We served hot dogs, chips and pasta salad and of course, the boys filled up on goodies from the dessert bar. 

Invitations are available in my SHOP.

The door sign is available in my SHOP.

One of Tristan's art class assignments was to make a 3D "T" out of cardboard, so when he brought it home, I knew it would be perfect for his party.  I spent several hours (whew, what a task) adhering tissue paper squares to it to coordinate with the theme.  He will be graduating to a room of his own this summer (he currently shares with his younger brother) where I will be reusing it and several other decorating elements from the party for his surfer themed bedroom.

Snack Bag Toppers available in my SHOP.

Favor tags available in my SHOP.

Cupcake toppers are available in my SHOP

You can find these stickers in my SHOP.

My big soon-to-be High Schooler, Tristan. Wow, how time flies!

Let's not forget about the little guy! Liam had a blast hanging with the big boys too!

My middle son, Gavin.  Wonder what theme he will want when it's his turn to say "Adios to 8th grade!"?

The shindig started at noon and ended at 9 p.m, needless to say, they all had a blast!

A day filled with friends, food and fun, what else could a 13 yr. boy want (besides the latest video games)? 

Thank you for visiting!

God Bless,

Mother's Day Celebration - Scrapbook Luncheon

I love my Momma, I love being a Mom and I love to scrapbook! So this year I hosted a Scrapbook Luncheon for my Mom and the other great Mommy's in my life (and my nieces) to celebrate Mother's Day.

The Decor:
I combined my love of chevron with my love of turquoise and hot pink to create the invitation and matching party decor.  I created two backdrops with tulle and made matching table runners and a banner.  My mom made the gorgeous flower arrangement for my centerpiece. Isn't it beautiful? I absolutely love it and can't wait to find a place in my office for it to live permanently.
The Food:
I served finger sandwiches, Mom's red potato salad (my mom makes the best potato salad),  Kale salad, fresh fruit, veggies and humus.

The ladies had their pick of cupcakes, cake, strawberry shortcakes and an array of candy for dessert.
Party Favors:
I decorated gable boxes with the initials of each lady and filled them with a handmade scarf. They were a huge hit (so don't be surprised if you see them added to our Rayden Vaughn Grayson Designs line)!

My beautiful friend Gabby modeling her scarf.

We ate, we talked, we scrap-booked and we created memories, it was a fabulous day with some fabulous ladies!

Thank you for visiting!

God Bless,
