Ashley successfully graduated from the University of Missouri Friday night with her PhD in Textiles and Apparel Management from the Department of Human Environmental Sciences. The graduation was wonderful, but more about that later... let's talk about the party!

Ashley and I have been planning the food for a long time through a website called Pinterest. This site allows you to collect photos in one place but the best thing is that it marks the website the photo came from. Great website!

We used a pink and orange color theme and decided on cupcakes as the main feature. We had sweet and savory cupcakes.  The line up was...

Ashley had people sign in using a thumbprint sign in sheet.  Here's my sister, Tammi, signing in!

Besides the great food, Bob's band played!  They were awesome.  It was a fabulous party.  We had help from so many people, Angie Letterman made the lime cakepops, Bob's band, Two Car Pile Up, Charlotte Dudenhoeffer made the tissue balls and string balls, Tammi made the hot rolls, Eric hung the panels and transformed the garage into Party Central, HyVee made the veggie tray so I could concentrate on the cupcakes.  Bob made a photo frame, which will appear here later, and the cute graduation cap cupcake holder.




Congratulations dear Ashley!  It is always fun to plan a party with you!
