Drinking In the last day of Middle School... Mom's Pre-Graduation Coffee

Over the last 2 years, we have celebrated The First Day of School
Mom's Only Back to School Coffees 

Most of my friends have graduating 8th Graders, 
and I thought it was only fitting to host
Last Day of School/Graduation Coffee Party 
to celebrate.

The end of the school year is so hectic, 
and I wanted to make this party special for everyone but easy for me.
Thanks to Safeway's convenience and selection and Gevalia's fabulous coffees,
it was a breeze to put together.

(the Gevalia Graduate!)

Graduation Granolas...

Commencement Coffee Cakes...

Gevalia Coffee is the perfect compliment for the simple breakfast foods I purchased at Safeway.
Their cast-iron roasting in Sweden, dates back to 1853.  
It is rich, never bitter and comes in so many flavors.
(and I have to admit, I am a sucker for the bright, fun packaging).

I can't wait to reminisce and laugh over the last 8 years.
Everyone is bringing some of their favorite school pictures of our little angels.
I am sure we will be amazed at how young they were (and WE were!).
It is hard to believe how quickly time goes.

I will be sending everyone off with a box from the,
Tower of Tissues,
complete with a quote, that is sure to get the tears flowing...

In the past,
I have handed out small packs for any
Tearful Moms at Graduation.
(here and here)
I decided to super-size them this year...

Well, the party is set,
I hope I am ready to have a daughter in High School.
Wish me luck!
