My oldest daughter…. Madeline and her dad actually put together most of these decorations while I prepared the food with my mom and mother-in-law sister and sister-in-law. We used Emily’s high school T-shirts and Sweat pants to decorate the table and outdoor space by hanging some of them with tape in the windows.
Don’t you just love how cut up watermelon always looks so beautiful! My mom made it look like a flower.
Here is a picture of the high school t-shirts hung up along with her gigantic MUM (the silvery thing hanging up in the background with long ribbons.) t is a Texas Oklahoma tradition.
You can see more of the Asian lanterns mixed with white lights and blue and white tulle flowing from the ceiling. We served some yummy grilled hawaiin chicken, corn on the cob, yams, broccoli salad, watermelon and a delicious drink made from Limeaid and 7-up with lots of crushed ice. At Emily’s school they make “Senior Roalty pants”..they paint their jeans and iron on fabric letters to make them festive. We had to hang them up as well.Here is our delicious corn and yams getting ready to be grilled.
After we ate dinner we all went to a free outdoor concert where a Salsa band was playing and we all got up and danced and it was so much fun!
Congtatulation to our Cute Emmy-Sue! You have done well and I know you will go on to do many more great and fabulous things.
