Sparkling Senior Graduation Party
Kristi Murphy styled this gorgeous Sparkling Senior Graduation Party inspired by Shutterfly’s graduation stationary. We just love the glitz and glam that this party has and how different it is from most graduation parties we see. This gold and white theme mixed with some black and white touches really makes this party glamorous and sophisticated.
Don’t you just love the sophistication of this Shimmer and Shine graduation invitation from Shutterfly?!

Pretty gold desserts filled the table and looked amazing with coordinating decor.
This gorgeous cake from Inspired Sugar took center stage on the dessert table. Inspiration for the cake design came from a glitter splashed pillow that Kristi saw on Pinterest. Amazing!
These shimmery gold meringues are too pretty to eat! See the tutorial on how to make these sweets from Kristi here.
Get pinning because these glittery graduation cap cookies from Inspired Sugar are absolutely amazing!
Giant 36″ balloons from Petite Party Studio with a tassel in coordinating colors really made the dessert table complete!
We just LOVE this DIY 2014 Graduation Garland. See Kristi’s easy tutorial here.
Cute diplomas adorned the table, which added a festive touch. They were made using black construction paper, twine and a gold paint pen.
The table setting included a black and white striped tablecloth from Ikea. The gold details really pop on the table against the stylish tablecloth. Place cards were made with black cardstock and a gold calligraphy paint pen.
Gold tape was wrapped around white candle sticks from Ikea. Such a fun and easy DIY idea!
Cupcakes included these cute printable graduation toppers! Add them to your graduation party by printing them here.
Guests received gold notebooks from Target’s dollar section! You would never think these pretty favors were from the dollar section! Such a good steal!
Sparkling Senior Thank You Cards were the perfect way to say thank you to guests! They were addressed using Shutterfly’s Scalloped Frame Address Labels.

Beautiful! It’s such a classy graduation party. I love the use of the black and white table cloths.
What colour did you order for the large 36′ balloon? Is that the blush?
I love this idea! Are the balloons gold or blush?
