Marissa's Shabby Chic Graduation Party

I am so excited to share this gallery of Marissa’s Graduation party photographed by the talented & beautiful Kristen Jensen of Kristen Jensen Photography.

{Full Gallery} 

Marissa & her family were some of the nicest folks I’ve ever met with heartfelt intentions about giving daughter, Marissa, a really special graduation party.  Not only is Marissa a great gal- she is super smart & talented!  Graduating as the Salutatorian of her class and set to attend school in Georgia this fall, we had a ball planning with Marissa and mom, Karen.  Karen is a role model mom with three amazing kids & a hectic schedule.  She was so much fun to work with and made the planning process alot of fun.

At our first meeting, I was shown Marissa’s tastefully decorated room that was a perfect mix of shabby chic and vintage.  Working with that, as well as Marissa’s sweet tooth (we love!), I created a beautifully rustic shabby chic graduation event complete with personal touches that could only make this event for Marissa.  Also, working with Marissa’s photography hobby, we not only created a graduation party but we did so with personal touches such as a custom installed photography gallery showcasing some of Marissas photos.

Amongst other personal touches, a few of our favorite highlights included:

-Chalkboard meets shabby chic invitations & matching chalkboard envelopes- addresses were written with a real chalk paint marker
-An actual watermelon keg concepted by our genius catering partners at Festivities which served as Marissas signature drink dubbed “The Graduate”
-Incorporating a chalkboard look throughout the entire decor-scape with a custom created welcome chalkboard illustrated by one very talented local illustrator {Need a chalkboard design? call us}
-Custom graduation props for a fun photobooth
-Chalkboard buffet labels, chalklboard mini signs, a chalk painted guest book for guest sign ins
-Vintage looking wildflowers in hob knob mason jars & lanterns designed by our fabulous design partner, Lisa! 
-A beautiful shabby chic candy buffet
-Linens that screamed shabby chic -pale pinks, peaches, mints and burlap 
-Burlap wrapped tent poles, airy paper poufs and lights throughout our tent
-A super fun and elegant buffet by our friends at Festivities included items such as make your own sliders with a spinning condiment wheel, outdoor Hibachi, mini- salads served in mason jars, an ice cream buffet and a customize your own s’mores buffet (YUM!!!- I DID TRY EVERYTHING AND IT WAS AMAZING!! )
-A beautifully custom graduation cake by Whole Food Lady Nutrition, Dawn (not Whole Foods..) that was absolutely one of a kind!
