For the Graduates: "Sweets and Treats" Party {Printables}

Several of my sweet high school friends are graduating this year.  
Last weekend, I had the privilege of taking pictures at a wonderful party for my friend, 
Molly Hohfeler.  She and her best friend Katherine had a party together.  
Their mother's gave it for them, and it was called 
"Sweets and Treats."  
I thought you would enjoy seeing the pictures from the party and their wonderful ideas on display.  Don't miss the additional links at the bottom of the post for more graduation party ideas!

These ladies made some of the treats, others came from a bakery in Dallas called Tart.  They make the most amazing little tarts, bundt cakes and cookies!  The girls got to make party favors at a candy bar, and I created a little photo booth for them to play around in with their friends.  
While the party was going on, a wonderful slideshow of the girls was rolling on the television.  
All of these beautiful touches happened against a wonderful
symphony of laughter, hugs and giggles!

The food was beautiful and Oh, so YUMMY!
For a keepsake, the invitation was framed and the girls wrote sweet sentiments and good wishes for the girls on the mat around the picture.

Perfect for the dorm!  
I put together a little "photo booth" so the girls could play and create some memories.  It was super simple to do: I simply bought a few one and two dollar frames from the thrift store and spray painted them.  Then I bought a pair of curtains (the pair was only $19.99!) 
from Ikea to hang behind the girls.  Aren't they ADORABLE?

What is your plan for the graduate in your life?
