DIY - Let's Flamingle

My little sister Jojo graduated from high school and I am so proud of her. I can't believe she will be leaving and going to college this fall. I never thought this day would come. Time flies! We celebrated her graduation and decided to go with a flamingo/tropical theme since it is fitting for the summer time. Also, who doesn't like flamingos? The weather could not have been any better. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the evening. For appetizers we had saltenas (Bolivian pastries filled with chicken or beef mixed with a slightly spicy sauce), empanadas, fruit, and a seven layer dip. We also grilled burgers and hotdogs. My little sister and her friends played soccer, basketball, and ping pong.

For the decorations, I found many of the items at Party City, Micheals, and the World Market. To make pictures more fun, I decided to create a picture frame. To create the picture frame, I used wood and gold spray paint. I bought the leaves and flowers from Micheals. I used foam paper to do my litter sisters name and the year she graduated. I used a glue gun to put everything together. The picture frame was the way to go, everyone enjoyed taking pictures with it.

Beautiful and delicious cake for Jojo
