Many college graduates this spring will reminisce about their four years at a small liberal arts school or large multi-campus university. Some of their first memories may include the Freshmen 15 pounds that they gained upon entering their institution of higher learning. One way to make sure that a College Graduation Party has all the elements of a festive celebration - cookies, chocolates, desserts and fun - without the stress of gaining weight once again, is to complement one's dessert servings with just as many servings of fruits and flowers.
The fruits can come in baskets of apples, pears and oranges. These offer a healthy alternative to all of the snacks that will likely be served at a typical Graduation Party. When putting a pan of fresh-baked cookies on the kitchen counter, try placing a plate of fresh fruits or a bowl of fruit salad right next to it. Newly-minted graduates as well as their family and friends can celebrate the occasion with fun foods as well as healthy fruits, to lessen the guilt of gaining weight and potentially putting on another set of Senior 15 pounds at one's own Graduation Party.
Colorful flowers also provide delightful scents, complementing the home where the Graduation Party will be held. Along with the smell of fresh-baked desserts, a host should offer the scent of flowers as an additional sensual delight, if not as a distraction to prevent people from only smelling the brownies and cookies, and ending up eating a little too much.
The best part of all of this party planning as well as healthy-food deliberations is that all of these things - flowers, chocolates, fruits and graduation gifts - can be purchased online through an internet florist.
A major internet flower provider can not only save you time by delivering the flowers right to your door, the company can also deliver food assortments, fruit baskets, as well as graduation plush toys - like a cuddly Teddy Bear in a commencement gown - along with the flowers.
Think about the time one saves when going to a physical flower shop is not part of the equation. You will have all the time left over to do what is really important at a Graduation Party - and that is to spend time with the new college grad, celebrate his or her achievements, as well as give encouragement and advice for the future years ahead.
