Luau Graduation Party
by Melissa


Aloha friends.   Every year we host a fun party for our friends and their mom’s to celebrate the end of the school year!  I was so excited to see a new collection come out of Laura’s shop in time for the end of the school year.

 The GraduationLuau Collection is bright, fun and easy to decorate around.

This season one of the hottest trends is flamingos.  Of course, Laura is right on top of this fun trend.  She married up the flamingo with a graduation hat and there you go – instant Grad Luau!

Coincidentally I already had a few boxes of luau decorations so I did not have to buy much for this soirée.  Using bright pinks, blues and yellows I transformed our patio to a Hawaiian Oasis.

The weather was perfect and the children had the best time in the pool, competing in the hula hoop contest and gobbling down all the fun treats.

It’s been a real treat to see all the children growing up over the many years of our annual party.   I hope they all have a wonderful summer! 

Until Next time – Mahalo
