graduation celebration party with oriental trading supplies

whoa boy what a week!
it all started with this graduation celebration party 
i had for my kids using 
oriental trading company supplies.

i made a bunch of desserts as you can see 
and used supplies like those giant 
2017 yard number picks 
that i didn't use for the yard (lol).
here are a couple close up pics 
if you care to see:
these are favor boxes.
they have peppermint patties in them 
with a grad sticker 
inside gold and black stripe boxes.

i got some cupcake toppers 
that i used and removed the sticks 
to get the decorative fans that i glued 
to the top of the boxes.
the gold boxes with the sticker embellishments 
i had to get last minute 
from michael's cuz i had more guests 
coming to the party the last minute.

as you can see,
i placed the favor boxes on this 
cute graduation stand that
i also got from oriental trading:
ok next up are some dessert details.
after decorating some sugar cookies 
with my kids' initials and making 
some brownie bite grad hats,
i also made some easy pecan phyllo tarts 
and topped them with "class of 2017" picks.
you get 72 picks in a box but heck 
i didn't make 72 tarts or it would be 
2018 when i got done (lol).

you can see how i made those 
pretzels in my last post.
here i just bought a caramel butterscotch cake 
at our local grocery and topped them 
with some grad picks.
and behind the cake is some crazy fondue 
concoction with way too many fondue options! lol
and for the centerpieces,
i used these awesome celebration flags 
to give them great height.
(you can see the diy graduation diploma centerpieces post here)
i would show you more but i gotta get 
ready for some more celebrating.
i can't skip this event cuz it's the 
actual graduation ceremony!
so hopefully you were inspired to have 
a grand graduation celebration party 
of your own when the time comes 
for those smarty pants.
here are some links to some of the 
oriental trading company supplies i used:

remember, whatever pants you are wearing, 
to me you are oh-so-smart!

for this review i was provided the party supplies free of charge by Oriental Trading Company. 
no other type of compensation was received for this review and i provided my own 100& honest opinion..
