reader question of the week

I'm baaaack....missed you all greatly. We survived the Great Flood of 2010 with no flood damage. Thank you for your sweet comments and emails. So many in our area were not nearly as fortunate, so we are feeling very blessed and thankful. My son's school, unfortunately, was very damaged, which means no more school for the rest of the school year, and no more summer school! Yikes. We are scrambling to get some extra help, but I'm not complaining. (If you are truly interested in seeing some more firsthand photos of the flood, check out my friend, Miller's, blog)

On to this week's reader question of the week:

"Hi! I have a graduation party that I am planning for brothers who are graduating from high school and college and we are celebrating both together. I would love some fresh ideas for how to combine them and make both feel special. Plus we will be feeding about 30 people but many are teenage boys who eat alot. Food ideas are a must! Thank you! -Kelly"

Bakerella's graduation cap pops are a must!

I love school-book-themed parties: use stacks of books to raise items up as centerpieces and on buffet tables. Library card/card catalog themed invitations are always fun.

Best of luck with your party!

I didn't realize you were in Middle TN! I am, too. So glad your home wasn't flooded. Fortunately, ours wasn't either, but about 30 families from our church have lost their homes. Very sad.

It's so great to have you back! It was a boring week without all the fabulous parties. I'm glad your family is safe and sound!

when I graduated HS, my mom made a cute board with all of my school pictures from each year, starting with pre-school. if you could get your hands on all of their photos, I'm sure the guests would really enjoy looking at them. it was a great conversation piece! ;)
