Graduation season is here, and with that comes graduation parties! This is an important celebration not only for your grad, but for you as a parent. It’s been a journey for both of you, and that’s absolutely worth celebrating! But throwing a party can be daunting, especially one that will make both kids and adults happy. The best place to start is with your grad. What are his interests? How can you use her personality to come up with a party theme? Here are a few easy ways to incorporate your grad’s story into your graduation party ideas.
Every graduation party revolves around the food—what great party doesn’t? Considering there might be a lot of hungry athletes in attendance, in addition to other friends and family, you’ll want something easy. Walking tacos are both easy and a favorite with teens. A kitchen or bar area in a basement works well for your serving area, because the sink can double as a beverage center and sets a little more casual tone for the party.
Having some sort of guestbook isn’t a must-have at a graduation party, but it’s fun to have friends sign something as a memento that the grad can keep. Something creative for any party is to choose a t-shirt from the future college and have everyone sign it!
Elevate the caliber of your commemoration with atmospheric lighting. If you’re entertaining outside, use strands of lights or battery powered candles to create an inviting mood without worrying about fire and wind. If you’re hosting inside, use candles and lamps instead of bright overhead lights. Create lanterns with battery powered candles and brown paper bags to light the way to your event with style.
Graduations are an important time in one’s life. It marks accomplishments while celebrating the future, a time for humble gratefulness and excited anxiety. Let your graduate know how special their accomplishments and goals are with a personalized celebration from the heart.
