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.

Your teen’s graduation is an exciting milestone, not only for the grad but for the whole family, marking their move into a new stage in life. Make the most of the moment with a graduation party filled with personality to match your grad’s. We used our Gold Sequin-Look Trifold Graduation Announcement as the theme for this graduation party, which inspired all of these graduation party ideas from the invitations to the decorations to the menu. Most of the products you see came from Pear Tree Greetings, Target or a local grocer.
We started with our graduation announcement for inspiration. We bought gold sequins, similar to the invite, and sprinkled them on the tables. (Sequins can be found at a craft store or online.) We also used the colors pink, gold and black to carry the theme throughout all the decorations.
We created a fun treat table where guests could enjoy cupcakes, pink lemonade, candies and sign the guest book print. Notice all the the pink, gold and black colors.

1. The Year in Photos. This graduation party idea has been a hit with our followers on Pinterest, receiving over 11,000 repins! The Year in Photos idea came from our Kraft & Shine Graduation Party that was inspired by our Kraft Ribbon Booklet Graduation Announcements. For this idea, organize printed photos in the shape of your graduation year. Add festive-colored balloons for an added touch.
2. The Year in Cupcakes. This graduation party idea looks delicious! The Year in Cupcakes idea came from one of our Featured Favorites who used the Trifold Dots Graduation Announcements for a joint graduation party and personalized it with bright, fun colors that matched their outfits in the photos. For this idea, they cut out cardboard numbers for the class year and used props to lift the numbers off the table to give it some dimension. Add delicious cupcakes with sprinkles that match the invitation and you have yourself a (tasty) hit!
It all started when, Kristin, the mom of a grad sent a message that left us teary eyed, “I just received my order and I have sat at my desk crying for 10 minutes because my daughter’s graduation invitations are so beautiful and perfect.” With that comment we just had to know more about her daughter and what kind of party she was planning so we reached out to see if she would like to be one of our Featured Favorites. She gladly accepted and we featured her daughter’s graduation announcement along with her story. After talking further with Kristin, we asked if she would share photos from her daughter’s graduation party, and again she gladly accepted :). Kristin sent us the graduation party photos saying, “It was a HUGE success and the talk of the town!” We are excited to share her graduation party ideas with you!
Morgan had a joint graduation party with her two friends. They took photos of the three girls and chose to use our Trifold Dots Graduation Invitation. They coordinated the colors in the invitation to match their clothing. What beautiful seniors!
Each grad had their own table, set up with her personal accomplishments and photos. We loved the light-up initials!
