If hosting a graduation party for recent high school grads, be sure to keep a close eye on the alcohol. While I wouldn't suggest not serving it at all, I would make sure that your underaged guests know what they can and can not drink. The last thing you want is some kids parents suing you for serving them drinks at your grad bash! Luckily the party I am planning this week is for a college graduate, meaning all of the guests will be of drinking age. The invitation stated that champagne will be consumed, so I'll make sure to have plenty of bubbly for everyone to make a toast together. Not everyone enjoys more than one glass of champagne, so I'll offer a specialty cocktail appropriately called The Graduate. Cold beers are perfect for dads and a refreshing pineapple mint lemonade is a perfect non-alcoholic option. Take a look at the recipe and make sure you have all of the ingredients before you go to the store, read more
This Fab Finding takes me back to when I was a budding grad from The Fashion Institute in NYC. Who knew I would end up a fashion blogger?! The lesson to be learned: everyone has a path, there are ups and downs, but keep your chin up and have fun along the way! Oh, and try to treat yourself to fabulous shoes once in a while, like these Rock & Republic Catherine Stiletto in Black Gingham, $345.
