Taylor's Graduation Weekend

This weekend was a monumental one in our "scrapbook"! Taylor graduated law school this weekend and we had one big shin-dig! From the party, there is one project/idea I wanted to share with you all!

**Appetizer Trays**

I began this project about a month ago when I went shopping in Fredericksburg with my parents. I found these old coke crates for $4-5 a piece. I bought 4 of them and decided to use them as decorative appetizer trays at the party.

The next step was getting all the food prepared. I bought all kinds of veggies, crackers, cheeses, meats and dipping sauces. Each crate was different and there were small 9 ounce cups in each one that were filled to the top with the yummy snacks.

The parsley was added just for eye candy! The trays was a great hit and I got a lot compliments on them. It was such an easy way to lay out the food and it even made for an easy cleanup. This idea would be great for any BBQ dinner!
