High School Graduation Party


This was a graduation party celebrated by adorning the residence entrance with Yard Art, amazing balloon arches and columns showcasing the graduate’s high school colors.  The kitchen again sported the school colors showcasing the dessert/candy bar with a transition of linens from Forest Green to Gold to Burgundy as the graduate was heading off to Arizona State University and the candy was also in both school’s colors.  The backyard was transitioned into all things ASU and the theme being our graduates major of Film Studies so tables were decorated with both gold and burgundy linens, florals also represented the same coloring sprinkled with film décor pieces such as projectors, cameras and clapperboards.

Activities were just perfect for this youthful crowd, friends and family which included a mechanical bull, basketball court, two large yard games, a caricaturist (featuring the graduate) and a graffiti wall with many ASU scenes available as a background for individual’s graffiti drawings and subsequent photo (an interactive Photobooth).  All this along with bartenders, an ASU Ice Luge for the drinks, and a DJ who brought the entire party to life and kept the beat going.

Food was provided by three purveyors.  A gigantic charcuterie board, slider and mac & cheese station all beautifully decorated was only topped by a live sushi chef preparing four different rolls in the kitchen.

We were thrilled with the party. It was everything we wanted and more. Thank you for all the amazing work. You go above and beyond and pay attention to every single detail. It was to perfection.

Photo booths are the perfect way to make any wedding unforgettable and entertain guest! This new trend of wedding photography is a unique experience allowing wedding attendants to participate in creative, fun group photos. Adding fun props such as posters, glasses, tiaras, mustaches, hats, masks and wigs create humor and excitement for guests. Photo booths do not just have to be used for entertainment for the guests, they can also be used before the wedding by the bride and groom sending out their Save-the Date. The photos from your wedding’s photo booths can also be made into a guest book for the bride and groom to treasure forever. A recent Kate and Company wedding incorporated a photo booth at their wedding…here are some photos from Megan and Jake Schmidt’s wedding!

Guests loved all the fun props available
