We were excited when asked if we could assist in the planning of Chase’s 8th Grade Graduation and send off to military boarding school! We got the call from his mother Perry Ann Reed whom we had worked with during our time with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. She was the current President Elect for the Junior League of Houston and was in charge of all the volunteers that participated in building a new home for the well-deserving Johnson Family. She was an amazing connection and friend to Occasio.
We decided to go with the Patriotic theme since Chase was hailing to the military. We paired his theme with nothing but his favorite treats! Freebirds World Burrito came in and made awesome custom burritos for all the guest. Hail to the Chief, Honest Abe and Star Spangled Lemonade were the beverages provided for Chase’s Guest that were served in Mason Jar’s and paired with striped and starred blue and red paper straws. The Reed’s adult guest were served beverages in pails that read: Life, Liberty and Happiness or offered a fresh squeezed margarita or garden grown mojito that was topped with a watermelon star-spangled and blueberry skewer.
Our favorite part of the entire of event was the white dance floor that was lit up with red, white, and blue LED lights (provided by DJ Unlimited) and was covered with a custom logo we commissioned from Cat & Glasses. Over the dance floor hung several patriotic lit paper lanterns. Take a look at our fun-filled evening.
