Think back to your very first apartment on your own. You’re probably conjuring images of hand-me- down furniture scrounged from your parents’ basement, bare walls, flea market dishes, and perhaps even the cliche milk-crate coffee table. Don’t let this happen to your own children (or your nieces, nephews, grand kids, or heck, your friends’ kids).

GRADUATION PARTIES 101:  Q&A With a Planning Pro

GRADUATION PARTIES 101: Q&A With a Planning Pro

As "graduation season" is upon us, we checked in with Greenwich events expert, Madalene Benoist d’Etiveaud of Bash Weddings & Events, for her go-to advice.

TIMING

What’s the best time to host a graduation party with so much end-of- the-year- event competition, especially on weekends?

I encourage people to check with the graduate’s friends to avoid a date conflict, so that everyone can attend each party. Graduation gatherings are typically held the first Friday or Saturday night after graduation, especially for high schoolers, however, college graduates tend to spread out festivities during the month of May. The college set prefers to celebrate at school with classmates, then continue festivities a few weeks later at home with their high school friends and extended family. First and foremost, high school graduates should consider dates that work for their family, sports teams, and neighbors -- more than one party on the street can restrict parking.

Are you engaged or newly married?

One of the best parts of living in New England? The miles of picturesque coastline and the beautiful beach towns and seaside hamlets that dot it. If you’re lucky enough to own a vacation home in one of these spots, then you’ve likely been counting down the days until warmer weather since you closed up your beach house last fall.

The Turtles and You: So Happy Together | Greenwich Perambulator

Have you ever seen a turtle sunning itself on a log and thought to yourself, “Damn, I wish I could tell someone about this?”

Well apparently there is a group that is waiting for your call. It is called the Connecticut Turtle Atlas, and it encourages everyone to report the “location and abundance of any turtles they see from April through November.” The local arm of this group is run by the Bruce Museum Citizen Science initiative, which is now starting its second year.
