Pretty Preppy Party Features for April!

Once again, it was a great turn-out for the Pretty Preppy Party this month!  I love seeing new faces around each month and getting to visit a few blogs that are new to me!  The other hostesses and I have chosen a few of our favorites to feature, and here are mine:

First, Melissa from A Prudent Life transformed some plain glass vases into custom pieces with just a few steps!  These will be perfect for all those cutting flowers that should be blooming very soon!  Visit her blog to see more.

And Rachel at Trailer Trash Treasure Trove transformed a plain mirror into a personalized piece for her entry for only $5!  Find out how she did it when you click over to her blog.

And Wendy at Designed to Dwell is transforming her son's room into a great space that's full of fun.  Click over to see more and get inspired!

So many great projects!  Be sure to visit the other hostesses to see who they have featured, and if you missed out on the party this month, be sure to stop back next month on the third Thursday! You have a great chance to have your project featured, as well!  Just be sure to link back to the Pretty Preppy Party when linking up!

Free Class of 2015 Graduation Party Printables

No matter my level of denial or disbelief, graduation season is quickly approaching and my own son will soon be graduating from high school. How on earth did this even happen?  

How did this little cutie... 

...turn into this handsome man?

It's one of life's mysteries, which I do not have time to think about amidst the scramble of preparations.  If you're in my boat, here's a little something that might help.  I've updated my 2014 design for graduation printables to accommodate the Class of 2015!  There are water bottle labels, a 2015 banner, flags and more.  Click here and here to download and print for yourself!

These little circles work well to customize these Chinet clear plastic dessert plates.  A couple drops of glue will secure the paper to the underside!

Maybe this will help you out with your party plans.  And if these don't really suit you, stay tuned, because on my list of things to do is to post a new design for 2015 graduation party printables which I'm planning for Grant's party!  So much to do and so few tissues to get me through it all!  Wish me luck!

Now it's your turn!  Feel free to link up any preppy projects from this month! You only need to link up via one blog and your post will show up on all five blogs. We can't wait to see what you have been up to. Please be sure to include a backlink to the party in your post somewhere as we can't feature your project without one. Not a blogger? No problem! Just post a photo on Instagram, be sure to tag at least one of the hosts and use the hashtag ‪#‎prettypreppyparty‬ so we can see your preppy goodness!

- Link to your specific post, not your home page.

- Your project must be pretty and preppy. If it doesn’t fit this category, it will be removed. We want this to be a cute and fun prep-destination! 

- Please link back to one of the hosts in your post. Only those with a link will be considered for a feature!  Use the button below, or a text link.
