Let the Festivities Begin!

My sister got married, and just graduated form college. Congrats! Her new husband asked the ladies in the family to help plan the graduation party. I made up the invitations, and my sweet mama came up with most of the decorations. I unfortunately was not as on the ball as I wish I was because of being in between addresses. I didn't know if things would make it in time, and they didn't! The red & white balloons did not make it in time. Nurse parties are fun, because it brings out Halloween supplies. I really wanted to get chocolate band-aids, and stethoscopes. It didn't happen. I DID get a fake prescription pad, and a customizable 'Congratulations' banner. My mom got syringe pens in 4 colors, pill bottles with custom labels and filled them with jelly beans as favors, nurse photo prop hats, a giant syringe, a giant pee cup to hold all of the syringes. My sister also got some syringes for jello shots(Of course-haha).
This is what I had in my inspiration board for the party.

Here is the invitation I came up with.

And here is the party! I set up a silly photobooth that went totally haywire. The silver fringe curtain was being completely sucked through the wood fencing. Poor planning, but I had no idea where it would go before I got to their house. I suggest having quite a few layers of fringe if there will be a photobooth up against the fence. :/ Now I know..

My nephew loved the syringes. He kept calling them 'shockers' and wanted his photo taken. Which is out of character. He usually hides! I am glad someone enjoyed the props! Always makes for good pictures. :)
