Over the weekend I had the pleasure of executing a surprise graduation celebration. The guest of honor was E.J. Henderson, if you remember I planned he and his wife Chenise's wedding reception here. Chenise called me several weeks ago and asked that I help her with the planning. After narrowing down the list of possible venues we decided on the Captain James Landing Crabhouse. The menu was all you can eat crabs, so Chenise knew her guests would be happy.
The crabs were plentiful and the atmosphere lively. I didn't want to overdo it with a cheesy graduation theme, so I kept it simple with the red and blue colorscape. Favors were crab shaped sugar cookies from Jersey Cookie Girl. In lieu of a cake I ordered blue and red cupcakes.
Chenise decided to send an evite to guests in place of a paper invitation. This made my job easier because guests were able to RSVP online making tracking the guest count 1-2-3.
I love Paperless Post! Their electronic designs are easy to customize/personalize and look great!
