Graduation Party Ideas
Add your final touch!
Your son or daughter only graduates once from high school, so you'll want to make the most of the moment! But it can be hard to plan a party when you're new to the whole graduation process. Here is a collection of ideas from our graduation experts (moms like you) who've been through it.
First, you'll want some sort of a checklist or timeline so you know when and what to do. Start with a good, all-inclusive graduation party checklist so you can plan for what's coming. You might also want to check out our Top 5 Graduation Party Ideas for inspiration.
Choosing a theme for your grad party is the fun part. Here are a few of our most popular graduation party themes, starting with the graduation invitations and complete with all the matching party decorations and what you can do with them:
- Classic Graduation Party
- Sequin-Inspired Graduation Party
- Garage Party
- Kraft & Shine Graduation Party
- All Star Graduation Party
- Graduation Party on a Budget
Aside from the menu and decorating, one of the most fun (or intimidating, depending on how you look at it) tasks you'll be faced with is creating some sort of photo display to honor your grad. There are as many ways to do this as there are grads, which is why we recommend enlisting the help of your grad for this project. Want something easy? Pear Tree's custom posters make quick work of it, creating an instantaneous photo display with very little effort. Read on for more photo display ideas.
Have fun planning your grad party, and remember to relax and enjoy it! This event only happens once for you, too!
