Such a milestone as this, it wouldn’t be right if they weren’t acknowledged for their perseverance in a big way. Whether planning a small gathering or a large party, your graduate needs to feel the love and the support of the accomplishments they’ve reached and what better way to do it, than with a graduation party. When planning a graduation party, regardless the size, it doesn’t have to cost much money to do it. With a few tips and tricks, it can be a party that no one would ever forget. 

What’s a party without a theme. You may think graduation is the theme, but graduation is the purpose of the theme and there are various themes to accentuate its purpose. For instance, you can have a pool party with bright colors to set off the season. Another theme could be a “Reach Your Dreams” party where there are various quotes from family and friends written on cut-out clouds placed all over the wall. There are so many ideas to choose from. Be creative and make this a night, or day, your graduate will cherish. 

You can’t have a theme without food. Once the theme is set, think of foods that can go with it. To lessen the cost, make it yourself or get friends and family to prepare some food and drinks, as well. There are many ideas online to pick and choose from, with a mix of your ideas to add. This will leave room for that special cake or dessert, which will be, aside from the graduate, the main event of the party. It’s all up to how you want to do this. For such a special occasion as this, one may want to purchase a specific type of cake which can vary in prices or if there is a “baker” in the family, that can make great cakes, look to them for some assistance. One could even bake blank no-icing cupcakes and have a diy activity for your guests. It’s different and creative, fun for everyone whether they have skills or not, plus, you would have also saved some money while making this a special moment. 

Notice how when you get a theme, everything starts to fall in place? Now you can work around everything that’s needed, like decorations, music, and invitations. Oh yes, don’t forget the invitations because they are what sets everything in motion. Custom graduation announcement are a must have. This lets all your friends and family know of the big day and their special party or gathering. This sets the tone of any theme or design of your graduate’s special day. 

Finally, activities and games are essential for a great party. It could be a group of family and friends sitting around sharing wisdom for the future or doing day graduate cut-out hats for guest to decorate. Regardless, it must be something that everyone, especially the graduate, will look back on and remember this special day forever.
