Graduation Celebration!

A few weeks ago my older daughter Carmen graduated Salem College. We have had a wonderful time celebrating!

Thanks Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday every week!

The celebrations started Friday night at the Baccalaureate Service followed by the President's Reception.

The next morning we had the Graduation Ceremony outside in the May Dell. It was a little rainy, but that didn't put a damper on our happiness!

After a luncheon at the college, we moved here out of her dorm and into her first apartment! She starts her first "real" job July 1st and we are all excited for her.

Then it was back to our hometown for a dinner at our house. Our theme was Daisies, since that is the college official flower.

Here is the foyer table with the epergne filled with daisies and hydrangeas.

Here is the dining room table loaded down with the food.
