Your senior is graduating and it’s time to PARTY! Throwing a graduation party is a rite of passage for grads from coast-to-coast.

Now, I don’t know about you, but my graduation party (back in the 90s, baby), was kind of a snooze-fest. We used my school colors, a whole lotta streamers and served up the standard hot-beef sandwiches in a sea of crockpots.

Today’s high school seniors have it soooo much better! If your kid wants to create a grad party with their personalized style-stamp on it, start with a theme that doesn’t involve their school mascot.

This bright and colorful tie-dye party theme is gonna leave you inspired to throw one groovy grad party.

Mail a Tie-Dye Party Invitation

First, set the tone for their out-of-the-box grad party with this absolutely fun tie-dye themed grad party invite. Pair it with their senior photos to create a look that shows off their carefree style and sweet personality.

We love this this invite in purple, but the tie-dye color can be changed to anything you’d like! From blush to blue to cheerful yellow, personalizing this cutie is as easy as a click of a button.

Decorate in Cheerful Style

When you use tie-dye to inspire your graduation party, it means one thing – COLOR! Decorate with eye-popping touches like:

Balloons: Order balloons that match their chosen colors (we totally dig those swirl balloons!) and scatter them everywhere! Quick tip – staking balloons in your yard is a really fun way to color and fun on the cheap.

DIY Tablecloths: You can purchase tie-dyed tablecloths, or you can put your grad and their friends to work. DIY’ing tie-dyed tablecloths is fun, easy and will add soooo much cute color to the party. Plus, they’re perfect for covering boring dorm room walls in the fall!

Dress Code: Now this is fun: request that guests come dressed in tie-dye! Just imagine the photos and fun memories to look back on.

And, Of Course: Dessert

If you grad has a sweet tooth, they’ll love dreaming up a tie-dye theme dessert bar.

Cake: Work with a local baker to create a tie-dye cake. Everyone will leave the party with rainbow-colored tongues and full-bellies.

Cookies: An experienced cookier can totally pull off making tie-dye t-shirt cookies. Adding their graduating year would be a super special way to personalize them too.

Candy Bar: Put together a candy bar using candies in a rainbow color palette. It’ll be absolutely adorable and come with a free sugar-buzz.
