The Centerpieces featured pictures of the grads at various ages and they were reversible, featuring Yaya and Tommy on opposite sides. The biggest challenge? A breezy day and it catching the flags, knocking them over. Yes, they were weighted with rocks but the size of the flags and pix caught the wind and required more than I thought. Thankfully, the wind settled and they were fine.
Flags and pictures were attached to balloon sticks and placed in floral foam, rocks under and over and topped of with Easter grass ( 10 cents/ clearance... wish I could have found more.)
