Raina Jernigan High School Graduation 2011

Okay, I has been almost a month since my last blog. We have been so busy. Our baby girl, Raina Joy, has graduated from Muskogee High School. She is the 7th of our 9 children. My twins, Asa and Ezra will be graduating next year. Wow time flies by.

I wanted to share some of the pictures from our celebration! We dressed our best. My jacket and Peter Nygard Embroidered Belted black cotton dress were from Dillards. Raina had the cutest black dress with black tulle peaking out from the hem. Dennis looked great as usual with black slacks, tan jacket and grey knit shirt.
Proud mom and dad!
We decorated the table using Raina's design sense using hot pink and creme for the theme.
Table Decorations
The pink paper lanterns were from Hobby Lobby. The silver candlesticks were from Southern Living. Special touches of black tulle and creme ribbon under the pink candles matches Raina's dress and theme. I used my mother's vintage embroidered table cloth. My daughter, Glory Thompson, made her famous Red Velvet Cake Balls

Graduation March          

 Let the party get started!

Pretty pink lanterns
Our friends helped us get the house ready for the party while we were at graduation. They only pass out a certain number of tickets per child...large families have to ask around for extras.

  1. so blessed to know such a close, and " real " family, in the Jernigan's.. Raina's joy is evident in the creative spirit that she possesses, and as she uses it, so many inspiring moments will come to pass, and be remembered.. Thank you for sharing of your lives , Melinda..
