How to Host an Unforgettable Graduation Party

Spring is about to be in the air, which means graduation season is coming up quick! As your graduate is busy completing senior projects, getting ready for the graduation ceremony, and looking forward to pursuing post-high school endeavors, you can help give them a proper send-off by helping throw a graduation party for them and their classmates.

When you think of a graduation party, there are a few obvious celebratory staples that come to mind: guests, music, maybe a speech or two. Oh, yeah — and food! With all that in mind, here are some considerations to keep in mind when planning a graduation party this season:

Choose a Fun Theme

Not only does a theme get your guests excited, but it’s also an excellent way to keep party-planning streamlined! Once you decide on what theme you’d like, you can have a blast with your graduate picking out matching decor, games, party favors, and invites.

Keep the Beat Goin’!

From commutes and road trips to formal dances and ceremonies, the right music has the power to make any event even more memorable. Depending on your budget, you may consider hiring a local band to play live music to really wow your guests. If you and your graduate are assuming the role of collective DJ for a get-together at home, make sure you utilize, rent, or otherwise arrange for dependable speakers that will play the soundtrack to your shindig!

Party Games

What’s a graduation party without some good old-fashioned games? Corn hole, bocce, KanJam, volleyball, and horseshoes are some of our favorite outdoor party games that are appropriate for all ages. While you work hard to create a spirit of togetherness for the day, there’s nothing wrong with a healthy competition!

Throwing A Backyard Bash vs. Renting Out a Venue
