College Send Off

Going away to college for the first time can nerve wracking for the one heading off to school as well as their parents and it's important to create some memories for the transition. And, what better way than to have a party?

The great thing about a college send off is it can be easy to plan. Our favorite idea is going with the college theme. 

Get the mascot, and choose teen party food that college kids like. Pretty easy!


Nautical Bon Voyage Theme

Anyone heading off on a cruise would probably enjoy starting their trip early and the nautical theme is the way to get them started.

The great thing is that there are so many great supplies for this theme.

We love this theme!

Some other fun party decoration ideas are to have are anchors, life preservers, light houses, and beach balls.

As far food, anything goes on a cruise. We like to serve things that can be grilled using some different marinades and lots of good salads and vegetables. The main thing is to keep it simple.

Of course, blended drinks are perfect for this theme. Get creative and enjoy!
