6th Grade Grad Party

My oldest son graduated from the 6th grade Friday morning. Friday night, the parents hosted a grad party at the clubhouse for 160 graduates. It was an American Idol theme and I was in charge of the decorations. I went down to the flower mart and was able to create 12 floral arrangements for $31! I already had the vases, blue glass chips and submersible blue lights. The posters were donated by a dad who works at Fox Studios. The cake was made by the grandmother of a graduate.

We had a red carpet entrance, back stage passes and "bouncers" at the door. We hired a DJ for dancing and the karaoke contest. We served pizza, chips, Dippin' Dots ice cream and cake. The kids got to take home "swag" bags filled with a choclate CD, bracelet, beach ball and an American Idol poster.
