Glam’friends! It’s been a minute but I am back with a fabulous party for you! I had so much fun styling this dazzling, “Oh the Places Amalia Will Go” 2019 graduation party! From the vibrant and fun color scheme to the fabulous vendors that I had the pleasure of working with, it was a wonderful experience!
The Design Process
I will admit, when I selected this color scheme (pink, orange, teal, yellow and gold), I got some side looks, LOL! I was talking to some of the vendors after they saw how fabulous everything looked once pulled together and a few of them admitted that they were skeptical. Never doubt me, I tell ya, never doubt me! Ok…who am I kidding? I was skeptical too! Hahaha Anyway……
For the theme I wanted to use the famous Dr. Seuss “Oh the places you’ll go” theme but I wanted it to be a bit more “mature” so I decided to go with my own color scheme and “adult” it up a bit and it was perfect for our high school graduate, Amalia! It is my belief that a graduate should be able to follow her dreams no matter where that may take her in the world. For every graduate, the world is theirs and with that belief, I knew I wanted to incorporate that into the theme via use of maps, globes, suitcases, and of course the stable used with the Dr. Seuss theme, hot air balloons.
Once my team of vendors came together, the final product was nothing short of amazing! The party screamed fun, promise, lightness, and beauty! I couldn’t ask for more for a party that I styled! Enjoy and let us know what you think!
