7 Things You Need for The Perfect Graduation Party

It's Graduation Season!

The months of May and June tend to host very joyous occasions due to the fact that school is coming to a close for the summer and many students are celebrating their graduations! Whether big or small celebrations, we believe graduation parties are essential for acknowledging the accomplishments of students and recharging their spirits in preparation for their next stages in life.

Here are our 7 tips for maximizing your graduation party!


Tip #1: Pick a great venue.

First and foremost, choose a venue that sets the tone for your graduation party. Whether it's a backyard barbecue or a rented hall, make sure the space is large enough to accommodate your guests. If you're having an outdoor party, be sure to have a backup plan in case of inclement weather.

Tip #2: Set the mood with decorations.

Transform your party space with decorations that showcase the graduate's personality and achievements. You can use balloons, streamers, and banners in the graduate's school colors, or create a photo display featuring pictures from their high school or college years.

Tip #3: Plan a menu that satisfies.

Food is a must-have at any party, so plan a menu that will satisfy your guests. You can go with classic party fare like pizza and wings or opt for a more upscale menu with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. Make sure to ask your guests about any dietary restrictions before you plan your menu.
