A Gorgeous Backyard Pepperdine Graduation Celebration for Shane

By June 16, 2022 No Comments

It’s been graduation season and lucky us, we’ve been a part of quite a few celebrations this past month. This particular celebration was for Shane, a recent Pepperdine graduate. His parents were so proud and wanted to have a special yet intimate party to celebrate the occasion. This one is so darn stunning with all of the details on point including delicious food, table settings, and gorgeous cookies! Take a look at the amazing photos by proud aunt and guest of the party Christina Amidon Photography.

Our clients make our job pretty easy with their incredible homes! We used beautiful rentals from the amazing Found Rentals. I love their mix of elegance and modernism. The tables were set with tones of blue from Hostess Haven. A nod to the beach with Pepperdine being in Malibu.

All the pretty details you see through-out the party are by my friend Kaylyn of Pirouette Paper. Notice the wave wax seal, another nod to the ocean! Plus, the gold mixed with the blue is such an elegant touch.

We always love meeting talented new vendors and the florist for this beautiful day was one of them! Our client Raquel, Shane’s mom, introduced us to Alyssa’s Flowers. She created these gorgeous arrangements that were absolutely stunning!

There were a few little guests at the party and we set a table to keep them busy! A fun younger version of the adult table complete with disposable plates, cups, and flatware – but pretty napkins from Hostess Haven. There were also custom activity pages by Pirouette Paper for each place setting and cookie decorating kits. And did I mention goody bags?! More kid’s tables at adult parties like this, please!

Can you even with these INCREDIBLE cookies?! My goodness!!!! Danikalicious really outdid herself with these!!

The bar was ready to serve up what the guest’s heart desired! Adorable signage by Pirouette Paper of course – gorgeous bar that matched our table from Found Rentals.

And our chef Jimmy Stafford busy at work in the kitchen, a beautiful kitchen at that! Owner of Stafford Prime, he always delivers delicious meals to our clients!

And of course, the Pepperdine flag was flown! Our client Raquel would never forget an important detail like that!

Cheers and congrats to Shane and the class of 2022!
