As summer makes its way slowly toward us, it's time to begin thinking about those end of school year celebrations, and specifically graduation.

Our local college seniors deserve our admiration and respect for their achievements, and if we've got a special grad in our life, we will want to properly celebrate them with a special dinner or even a party. City Line Florist loves so many of the spring centerpieces available right now, and luckily they also make the perfect addition to your graduation party decor.
