presentation night

Last night we hosted our local home education groups first ever presentation night.
We had two graduates, one has gotten, at the age of 15, a chef's apprenticeship, the other at 18 is off to university next year.

Even though it is close to Christmas I wanted the night to have an educational theme rather than a Christmas theme, so I deliberately have not yet decorated our entertaining area for Christmas.

 So I came up with a centrepiece of a blackboard with letters around it (I used my chalkboard pen), a bundle of old books and some apples and then onto the tables

 I sprinkled gold stars.

 On one of the smaller children's tables I wrapped a can in pencils tied it with red ribbon, put numbers on the chalkboard and sprinkled it with giant paperclips.

 Here are our children with their certificates, each family was responsible for organising their own children's certificates and presenting them.

A very quick shot of my decorated pavlova before my camera ran out of batteries, cream, passionfruit, banana, mango and kiwi fruit grace the top of this beauty, it was very yummy too!

It was a lovely relaxed evening with a special feel to it and I am sure we will be having one again next year.


  1. Hi Deanne, sounds like Presentation Night went very well. I expect you all were very proud. I must say that I love Pavlova and haven't made one is about 40 years, LOL I could eat some now - could you send some over the computer? I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  2. Those table settings look perfect for the occasion Deanne. Elise tells me you have the perfect place for an evening like this. I'm pleased it all went so well.

  3. yumm.. what a lovely looking pavlova. I'm a sucker for anything with cream and passion fruit!
