Our best graduation party tip? Keep it simple! If you want everyone having fun and mingling, order in a pizza - or have plenty of finger food available - with cold beverages clearly marked in coolers so party-goers can serve themselves.
If you've got a big backyard and you're feeling ambitious, fire up the grill and check these expert barbecue party ideas for a fun and memorable celebration for your high school grad.
After the party's over, check out more guides for the college-bound offering some great advice on getting ready for dorm life with a dorm kitchen checklist (they make great gifts, too!) plus more 'been there' suggestions for getting adjusted to dorm life and college.
For now, it's time to party.
Good luck...and congrats!
