Graduation is a good reason to declare... Party Time!
All of the work that went into getting to this stage - where you can pick
up that precious scroll
- should be rewarded by a celebration.
Whether it's a small family get-together, a backyard garden party for close friends, or a graduation open house party open to the entire neighborhood, the only requirement is that it be fun and memorable.
Be sure to plan the guest list and send out invitations a few weeks in advance. Buy store bought, or create your own using the official graduate photo or download graduation clip art to make your own special custom invite and be sure to include the where, when, and RSVP details.
Think about the crowd you're inviting over and - if it's anywhere from toddlers to teens - consider a buffet of finger foods, a pizza party, or other easy graduation party food ideas.
Or, celebrate the end of school and the beginning of summer with seasonal party themes such as a Hawaiian luau or a fun and festive pool party.
