Good morning! We are officially in summer! I love it! Last week we spent time camping at the beach. It was so nice! Cooler weather, but no wind. It was so pleasant to walk to beach and just sit on the dunes and hang out with family.
Before we headed to the beach though, we had Haley’s college graduation party. Woo hoo! Haley works at Tomorrowland in Disneyland, so we planned our party around it. We featured each ride and even snacks to go along with it!
Here is the graduate and cast member, along with her galaxy dress and blue lipstick!
Lauren and I have worked many months working on some of these pieces. The Astro Orbitors took us months to figure out! I was quite the process! I think it turned out amazing and it was the first thing you saw when you walked in the door. We also made a Tomorrowland Directional Sign which included each of the rides, Pizza Port and of course, the restrooms.
The rockets even light up!
We made a styrofoam moon complete with planets, rock candy and ‘Star’bursts.
Lauren made this amazing acrylic pour painting to look like outer space. I think it looks so cool! We added few more planets, stars and Haley’s graduation pictures along with a Class of 2019 banner.
These are my favorite! Autopia cars! This is Haley’s main attraction she works at and I was so excited to find some replica cars on Ebay. I borrowed some foam road pieces from work and we added some Oreo tires and gumdrop roadblocks. Aren’t they fun!?
We are not the biggest Star Wars fans, so we borrowed some pieces from some friends who are fans. We found the grape juice bottles with Chewbacca and a Storm Trooper while going through a grocery store on our way to find something else and knew we needed to add them to the table.
This was a last minute design. Lauren decided we needed a Pizza Port since we were serving pizza. We used a tomato cage, some plate risers, and a wooden stand. Lauren made the claw to hang from the middle. It turned out really cute, but unfortunately the pizzas didn’t really fit inside. Oh well! It looked good! We included Buzz and an Astro Blaster for the Buzz ride.
We had lots of great food too and gave them fun names to go with the theme. Popcorn became Astroids.
Seven layer dip became Seven Leia Dip and…
The tortilla chips were Storm Trooper Scoopers.
Aren’t the Little Green Men cupcakes adorable? I love their little eyes and antenna!
Even our drinks were named. Lemonade was Vadoraid,
Soda was Yoda Soda,
and we had Rocket Fuel and Blinker Fluid.
We had so much fun celebrating along with family and friends. Congratulations Haley!
