science themed graduation party- I think anyone would be interested in the periodic table in cookie form!Y’all, this graduation party for our little brother was one of my very favorite parties. Ever.

And this little fete was no exception.

science themed graduation party- I think anyone would be interested in the periodic table in cookie form!There was a periodic table of cookies made by Jordan The Sugar Cookie Master (world’s best sugar cookie recipe and her tips are here). Not only were these so yummy, cookies in periodic table form was just such a fun addition to the treat table!

Maybe because people like me ate nine cookies. That might be an underestimate, actually.

favors at a science themed party- jelly belly jelly beans!And there were Jelly Belly jelly beans everywhere! Since these were my siblings’ favorite treats as kids (we used to make Jelly Belly bean ‘recipes’ on road trips and now are passing this awesome tradition onto our kids), these were the perfect addition to my brother’s graduation party!

Our brother and his fellow School of Mines graduates noted several times that the beakers and test tubes dotting the tables took the dessert table up a notch (I found all of the containers on amazon and eBay). And my mom’s antique school desk (and the chalkboard filled with formulas) added to the ‘school’ vibe.
