This past weekend we had to graduation parties to attend. Steven, our neighbor graduated from Vassar High School. His mom asked if I would make layered finger jello for his party. I made one batch to match the school colors, orange and black. I used black cherry jello for the black layer, not quite black. If I do this again I will have to find a way to make black jello.
Because Steven is leaving for the army in August, I also made a batch of red, white and blue finger jello. That one turned out looking better. I personally don't care for finger jello but it always seems to go over at a party and the layer version is pretty to look at.
My nephew, Nathan also had a graduation party this weekend. For his party, I decorated the small Hershey and Kit Kat bars. In the past, the candy bars had paper wrappers over an inner foil wrap and I would make new personalized outer wrappers on the computer. Now the candy bars only have an one piece wrapper. So I just made labels for the front and back. On the front I put a picture of Nathan in his Swan Valley football jersey.
On the back of the bars, I put a label wishing him good luck at Michigan Tech which he plans to attend in the fall. Unfortunately I didn't take photos before the party and only have pictures of the wrapper from the candy I ate.
