Have you started thinking about your high school senior’s grad party? Their graduation day will be here before you know it, so starting party planning early is smart!

Once you’ve set the date and ordered your grad party invitations, it’s time to work on all those details. Set the menu, rent tables and tents, and finally, begin to plan how you’ll personalize the day with fun graduation party decorations.

Now, the party day will go by with a blink of an eye. You might even be hoarse by the end after talking and talking and TALKNG for hours on end! Your child will be busy too, bopping from family to friends to teachers and coaches who have cheered them on through the years.

This is exactly why we love this idea: have your party guests help create a keepsake for your senior that they’ll treasure for their entire lives. Our new personalized graduation advice cards are the perfect way to pull this off. These double-sided cards are personalized with your grad’s name, and even photo, and have room for guests to fill out their best advice as they start their new journey.

3. Encourage Guests to Fill Them Out

On the day of your grad party, we suggest scattering your advice cards on tables, making it easy for people to fill them out.

Set a stack on each table and add a little sign asking guests to participate. Use wording like, “Got Advice? Give It!” or “Kate Needs Your Advice!” or “Please Share Your Best Advice and Well Wishes for Kate”.
