graduation and a birthday party

The new school year is just starting, but if you’re one of those early planners, we’ve already got inspiration for the end! This fantastic Navy & Yellow Chevron Party by Shawna of Event Styling by Shawna Marie is actually a joint graduation party and birthday party – and really – it’s full of great styling inspiration for ANY type of celebration you have coming up. Isn’t the combo drink and dessert station (pictured above) just lovely? Don’t miss the incredibly creative invitations either… Shawna’s got some serious graphic design skills! :)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Rootbeer floats served in mason jars with chevron “YUM” tags
  • Die-cut graduation cap cupcake toppers
  • Simple & chic blue chevron cake accented with a band of yellow
  • Creative backdrop idea: large white frames filled with paper + a chevron bunting overly

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Shawna

This was a combination graduation and birthday party – Clayton graduated with a Masters in architecture the same weekend his brother-in-law Josh was having his birthday. The two wanted root beer and desserts to go with hamburgers and hot dogs. The navy and yellow chevron colors created a masculine look to the party decor.
