Teacher Lady's Graduation Party

We decided to throw a graduation party for fashionista yesterday. Although we have all graduated (sisters and cousins), we have tended to let the milestone pass without any fanfare. I thought it was about time this changed and we started to celebrate our acheivements together.

I found myself something nice to wear (to go with the nice olive Indian slippers I borrowed from Long-Suffering Sister about two years ago)

and headed over to my mum's, whose garden seemed the perfect place to play at parties.

The banner I made the day(s) before got put to use:

Fashionista made sure there were plenty of sweets...

...which the kids totally overdosed on:

Between us, we managed to lay out a good spread (the chickpea salad was mine):

One of Fashionista's friends brought her cakes and biscuits:

And of course there had to be cake

We had a lovely laid-back day, and the best bit was that I actually got through a whole day without doing any real cooking because freinds invited us to dinner.
