Linking up for Five on Friday today with some graduation goodies!
My little bitty brothers aren’t so little anymore because they graduated from high school last weekend! Here are some of my favorites from commencement and their open house. Also, apologies for the few and crappyish pictures I do have from the open house. I
Aren’t they cute?
These are personalized M&Ms that we had at their open house. They read, “Congrats Jacob,” “Congrats Logan,” and “GC 2014.” In case you’re wondering, they are just as delicious as regular M&Ms. Just saying.
Of course, we had to use the M&Ms as festive additions to the cupcakes we had instead of cake. Yes, these are the dreaded cupcakes, and they were even more delicious than I remembered. I highly recommend using Marsh for your baking needs. The cupcakes are fantastic, and they can do a whipped cream icing (pictured here) instead of regular icing. So so good.
1 gallon blue Hawaiian punch
1 liter Sprite
Pineapple juice to taste
It doesn’t get much easier than that.
By far, I think these were my favorite part of the open house. We used goldfish as every centerpiece, and it turned out way better than I imagined. Their school colors are blue and gold, get it? If you’re wanting to do this for your next shindig, I have a couple of suggestions for you.
First, pay attention to the fish before and during the party. Goldfish don’t exactly have the longest lifespans. RIP little buddies.
Second, remember that the fish don’t just disappear along with your guests. You may end up like this.
I’m allowed to keep three of them in this tank that we already have. The problem is deciding which ones to keep and which ones to…send to the ocean in the sky.
