Planning a grad party can be an overwhelming task, but our graduation party ideas will help you get inspired in no time! This classic-themed graduation party features plenty of unique ways to make your graduation party fun & memorable.

To get this party started we chose our most popular graduation announcements ever, Favorite Photo. This simple announcement showcases a classic mixed-font greeting over a full photo. It also has room for four photos and all your party details on the back. You can even edit the black background color to your liking.

We wanted to create a space where guest could enjoy snacks while looking at photos of the graduate throughout the years. We used black as the main color and accented with gold and added a few pops of orange from the grad’s fall photos.

The highlight of the table setup is the Snapshots Custom Poster, which we used as a backdrop. This poster features 15 photos, which allows plenty of space to feature baby photos right up through senior year. It’s an easy alternative the typical collage photo boards. As a bonus, it is tear-resistant and can be used indoors or outdoors.

To continue the classic-look for this graduation party, we used the Krafted Grad Banner and split it in half to create two banners — one that said “Grad” and one that said “2015,” which we used elsewhere. It’s fun to come up with new ways to use the banners!

We thought it would be fun to give our guests a way to leave good wishes for our grad, so we personalized the Glowing Year Guest Book Print for guests to sign as they arrived. This print makes a great keepsake for the graduate.

For the snacks, we served classic favorites of chips, salsa and fruit. The Glowing Year Cupcake Flags were a perfect match to the guest book print so we used them to liven up our fruit salad. We chose our beverage just for its color, using orange Fanta to match the orange leaves in the graduate’s photos.

We sprinkled Congrats Photo Table Decor throughout the table as an added personalized touch. We also ordered Favorite Photo Napkins to match the invitation. And to spruce up the silverware, we put them in a mason jar and added a Faux-Foil Year Personalized Sticker.Graduation party ideasGraduation party ideas

Lastly, we set out Favorite Photo Comment Cards for guests to leave advice and well wishes to encourage the graduate. It’s a nice personalized touch that the grad will enjoy reading after his graduation party.
