Let your theme be your guide when decorating for the party. Graduation caps and scrolls are popular decor but you can also try something more whimsical like shooting stars or a travel theme if your guest of honors’ next life event involves leaving the state or country! Maybe sports or music played a big part of your student’s last four years. You can take the time to honor that interest now by making it part of your graduation theme.

Here are a few ideas for current trendy graduation party activities:

– Make a memory jar. Have guests write memories of the last four years on colorful strips of paper to fill a clear mason jar. The memories inside the jar can be read later by the recipient in privet for them to reflect on their school career.

– Signature frames, shirts or stuffed animals. Have guests sign their names and offer words of encouragement on an object that can be used as a keepsake.

–  Hang photos as decorations using clothing pins and wire or rope. You can even intertwine white or colored strings of lights for evening parties.

–  Create a time capsule. Have guests secretly add items to a time capsule that can be opened by the graduate at their 10th reunion.

You can honor parents, sibling or grandparents by seating them at a specially decorated table or letting them give a speech to the graduate during the event. Or perhaps the guest of honor themselves would like to say a few words to the crowd thanking their family and friends for their support.

You can end the event with thoughtful party favors that are unique to your graduate.  Have the favors include the graduates name or photo to personalize the occasion.

Graduation Water Bottle LabelWhether your child is graduating from high school or college, they’ve made it through four long years. And now you’re ready to celebrate their success by planning a graduation party for him or her.
Planning a graduation party can be fun. However, in the midst of this fun, people tend to go overboard with the menu items. They have too much food at the party and as a result, tons of food is thrown away. Don’t let this happen at your child’s graduation party. Instead follow these four simple steps in creating a menu for your child’s graduation party.

1) Keep the menu simple. Serve between five to seven different menu items.

2) Use your imagination. Just because it’s a party doesn’t mean you must hire a caterer to serve fancy food that most young people find distasteful. Since this is their party, consider their food preferences. For instance, most young people love pizza. Why not serve pizza from their favorite pizza parlor? If they’re health conscious, a salad bar would definitely be a perfect food selection.

3) Consider the time of day you’re planning to host the party. You can throw this party any time of day. Just make sure you serve the appropriate food for that time of day. For example, if you’re throwing it during the late morning hours, consider having brunch. You can serve pancakes, bacon, eggs, doughnuts, coffee, etc.

4) Choose your beverages wisely. Considering that people tend to celebrate heartily, it might not be wise to serve alcohol. You certainly don’t want anyone getting drunk and causing commotion on this jubilant day.

Furthermore, if your graduate isn’t of legal drinking age, you definitely don’t want to encourage them to drink by having alcohol at their party. Serve non-alcoholic beverages instead. This would be iced tea, lemonade, sodas, and water. Did you know that you can add to the graduation party’s joyous mood with a bottle of water? This is done by using personalized graduation water bottle labels. Personalized graduation water bottle labels purchased from Announce It! are perfect for adding a special touch.
