War Eagle for Katherine

Yes, I said "War Eagle" - I really did.... just for Katherine. Our sweet cousin is headed to Auburn this fall so we had a family party to send her off. Yes, my family wore orange and blue, too! Believe it or not!
It all started with this invitation found on!

 The décor included Aubie, of course, Katherine's Auburn cheerleader Barbie from childhood and some shakers!!
And we even had our own version of Toomer's corner! (A tree from my Halloween decorations)
I made the "straw flags" on Microsoft Word using Toomer's Corner - Go Tigers, Auburn and War Eagle. I would love to share but I guess I didn't save them. Oops! But they weren't hard to make at all! I ordered the
chevron straws on Etsy!

What would an Auburn party be without Toomer's Corner Lemonade? We actually used the recipe I posted last week. Here is the recipe!

The idea for the fruit salad of blueberries and cantaloupe came from Amy has some really cute ideas!
 Just like a tailgate party on Game Day!

 A for Auburn - these iced sugar cookies were quite tasty although I am not an expert in decorating cookies! By the way, have you seen the fabulous cookies from Whimsy Cookie Company in Memphis? Check them out! If you saw the movie "Blind Side" you will remember Collins Touhy, the daughter in the Touhy family who adopted Michael Oher - this is her cookie company!

Tiger Brownies - cream cheese brownies with the cream cheese mixture tinted with orange!
Katherine is part of the 3rd generation in her family to attend Auburn University! What a fun celebration it was for the family of aunts, uncles and cousins to celebrate with Katherine by showering her with orange and blue! She got lots of fun Auburn gifts to take to Auburn in a few weeks!

Congratulations, Katherine, on your graduation from high school and best wishes in your future at Auburn and....... 

just for you......War Eagle!
You can find the War Eagle Banner in the soon to open Etsy Shop -
