This spring my cousin graduated from the University of Utah and I wanted to throw a party with all things red. (Go Utes!) Without much time to prepare, I kept this party pretty simple.
I spiced up the beverage container with just a little ribbon and a description of the graduate’s degree – atmospheric sciences.
I turned these dollar-store vases upside down, shoved glittery garland inside, and topped with candles. I wrapped each candle in University of Utah paper I found at the local scrapbook store. It was a great centerpiece for the food table.
I used more University of Utah paper and diecuts from the scrapbook store to spruce up this beer bucket.
I also spruced up the beer bottles with a little ode to the graduate.
I used red and white carnations – perfect for the University of Utah. And ya’ll know how much love I have for single bud vases. A little graduation cap diecut and graduation confetti tops off the table.
This wood U was easy to paint and a cheap way to incorporate the traditional cap letter logo.
