A few pics to share...

from our Graduation Open House with the Dr. Seuss theme...."Oh the Places You Will Go"

The table turned out cute, and how fun to find (thanks, Barbara!) the polka dot napkins at Target to match the colors in the book.  If you love polka dots like I do, run over to Target and see all the cute polka dot paper napkins they have in stock right now....lots of colors!

On the menu, we had ham, pulled pork and chicken salad with buns, several dips and spreads with crackers, (you can see I served the chips in hurricane vases, which turned out really cute!), veggies and dip, fruit tray, and on the dessert bar were cake balls, cream puffs, lemon bites and pecan and chocolate tarts.  It was a great time and we enjoyed seeing so many friends!

Oh everything turned out just wonderful. How creative with Dr Suess. My son just graduated HS, but I did not take a single pic of the tablescape, how silly of me.
I do so enjoy visiting your blog, have a great day.

Cute decorations for your special event. I love Dr. Suess and especially this story. I used it for inspiration to make altered books for my two grandchildren who graduated from college last month. A fun project. Thanks for sharing your party.

Everything looks so nice. I love the idea of serving chips in a hurricane glass.

Oh, I love this!! You can certainly tell what you do for a home business because of the lovely table and all the wonderful serving pieces!

I love the theme, too. It's just perfect.

So glad you're getting that grooooove back.

What a great theme for graduation, I've never thought of the book in that way before but will have to keep it in mind for years to come ;-)

Suzanne, it looks like a photo spread for Southern Living! What a clever theme. All your table pieces really look nice filled with food.

I'm sure everyone was quite impressed with your tablescape skills! :)
