There are ceremonies, speeches and the closing of an era. Don’t forget the parties! If your high schooler is graduating in the next year, it’s never too early to start planning for a party.
With trends changing so frequently, where would you even begin? Don’t worry because we’ve got you covered.
We’ve put together a list of four awesome grad party ideas to help get the ball rolling!
1. Big Games
At graduation parties, like most other parties, the main event is the food available and the mingling. But this doesn’t have to be the case!
Add a third dimension to your graduate’s party by incorporating yard games! There’s been a recent rise in lawn-sized games. Give your guests something tangible to do like jumbo Jenga, corn hole, backyard dominos or even a pinata.
2. Time to Theme
When it comes time to decorate your graduation party, make sure you don’t pick out random and mismatched decor.
One of the most crucial elements to planning a successful graduation party is to have a cohesive theme. This theme should affect your food choices, decor, playlists and everything in between. The theme could surround a color scheme, sports team or anything else that’s specific to the graduate.
Take time and talk to your upcoming graduate. What do they envision to be the theme of their party? Together, you can get direction and vision for creating the perfect themed graduation party.
3. Set up a Photo Booth
There are going to be so many pictures taken during the graduation season. Some of them should be fun!
Setting up a DIY photo booth at your graduate’s party will help you and your graduate remember their special party and time for years to come. You can purchase fun photo booth props online or at a party store.
For the more creative and adventurous type, you can make your own photo props. If you want to give your photo booth a little more sentimentality, you can find a cute chalkboard and place it near the booth.
On the chalkboard, write something that encourages guests to tag their photo booth pictures with a graduation party-specific hashtag. With this hashtag, your graduate can enjoy and relive their party for years down the line.
4. A Sentimental Send-Off
Your senior just graduated high school and, essentially, the world is their oyster.
This is can be an exciting and sometimes scary time, trekking into the “unknown.” A great way to end a graduation party is to gather friends and family around the graduate and shower them with intentional love.
This could take shape in a few different ways.
You could have all the guests gather around and say a few words of encouragement. You could have a station at the party where people can leave words of encouragement or recall a fond memory.
A cool idea you can run by your senior is to have a paper lantern send off, symbolizing them moving on and into a new chapter. This type of send-off isn’t just for weddings!
You can buy paper lanterns and have all the guests go outside and watch them float into the night sky. Make sure to do this in an area where there are no environmental hazards.
With the people they love around them, this will make for a memorable night. They’ll leave feeling loved.
