Picnic Party

On Saturday I helped hostess a surprise congratulatory party for our dear friend Dave, who recently graduated with his Doctorate. I was inspired by this party. The gable boxes wouldn't have been shipped in time, but I was able to find these boxes locally. It was so fun putting everything together and...




...I'm pretty sure Dave was surprised!

Congratulations Dr. Dave!

  1. He sort of looks like a crazed Doctor, but I am sure he will be fine. Take 2 pills and call me in the morning Dave...

    That party looked like so much fun Dandee. Once again, you did it so well.

  3. Doctor Dave has a nice ring to it. That's what I started calling my brother when he graduated from medical school. You're so creative all the time! I love the quote on the boxes.

  16. As usual, your creativity is so inspiring! I'm curious to know how you created/secured the quote band around the boxes. We are in charge of the lunch at a family reunion and I would LOVE to create something similar. BTW, I made a "butterfly collection" for my Mom for Mother's Day ... it turned out great. Thank you for the idea!
