In July we had a party to celebrate Sheralyn’s hard work and receiving her GED diploma.  Sheralyn is part of our family and has lived with us for a year and a half.  We are very proud of how diligently she worked to get to this point! 

It’s been a while since I’ve been a part of planning any sort of larger party and I enjoyed finding ideas, getting inspired and getting those rusty wheels turning again!

The party invitation.

Hot Doggities - a fun and easy thing for a party!

Old crates held a Gerber Daisies and created a centerpiece for small circles of guests who brought their own picnic chairs.

I made flowers and polka dots from royal icing to decorate the cake. (Recipe and directions here.)  It's so much fun to work with and very simple. You do have to allow a few days for it to dry completely, but there is no end to what you can create!

My Sister-in-law, Alison, made this lovely orgami butterfly card for Sheralyn. 


"There you and your families will feast in the presence of the LORD your God, and you will rejoice in all you have accomplished because the LORD your God has blessed you."
Deuteronomy 12:7
