Is there a grad in your family or extended family? 🎓 Why not create a fun and inspiring celebration for him or her? Our inexpensive and DIY ideas for décor and food options will make your graduation party the standout event of the season!
Décor can be used to engage guests and offer delightful opportunities for memorable photos. You can easily assemble DIY photo booths with items already at home. Cut cardboard into fun shapes like a mustache, a pair of lips, 💋 or even congratulatory messages. Attach cutouts to popsicle sticks for easy use while posing for photos. A large, empty picture frame can be hung or held by guests as they pose, creating delightful snapshots. 📷
If you want to put the spotlight on your graduate, and have a lot of old photos of them in your collection, try this: Pin photos onto a clothesline, highlighting the progression of time and offering a fun glimpse into the graduate’s past.
Another idea: Create an “Inspiration Wall” with colorful post-it notes, and allow guests to provide words of inspiration or memorable quotes. ✍ A “Keys to Success” jar or wall will also let your guests contribute lessons and advice.
While the menu is usually the graduate’s choice, we’ve come up with some ideal treats that can save you time and money.
For smaller children, healthy food options can be tricky. A bag of goldfish crackers tagged to remind them that, “It’s O-Fishally the last day of School!” 🐟 will add welcome fun. Ribbons 🎀 tied around healthy sandwich wraps also create a delightful diploma look. Mini sugar cones 🍦 filled with hand-cut fruit shapes are another healthy compromise. For those who can’t resist a candy treat, 🍬 try labeling a glass jar with “Class Rings” and filling it with a colorful assortment of Ring-Pops. 💍
With these options and countless others, your graduation party🎉 is sure to be a hit! Enjoy this exciting time and savor the memories!
