When I started thinking about what kind of decorations I would use for my nephew’s graduation I immediately thought of school supplies. The iconic black and white marble composition notebook is synonymous with school and so I made simple place cards using that idea. I created a “Notes” box in Microsoft word and then placed them onto a composition book. I made copies on card stock and simply cut them out. They were attached with a paperclip to a piece of ribbon that I found at Tinsel Trading Co. on Lexington Avenue a few weeks ago in Fordham colors.
I love to use Engineer Prints from Staples for a graduation. I took these on my iphone the day before the party, uploaded them to the Staples website and picked them up a few hours later. So easy and two prints for less than $5.
A Sharpie water based paint pen with a bold tip for a little decoration right at the front door. The cup cake toppers are from Zazzle. They are stickers and along with red velvet cupcakes in Fordam red creating a simple centerpiece. I chose a photo of Ryan from a golf tournament last fall at Yale vs. Fordham. Everything was easy, inexpensive, but personalized with school colors and photos. Congratulations Ryan!
