With graduations just around the corner, the odds are that you are in the early stages of planning a party to celebrate your loved one’s accomplishments. As with most parties, the organization is considerably more tedious than the idea of throwing one. Fortunately for you, we have several ideas and steps that we recommend that you follow to help alleviate some of the stress.
You need to first determine your budget. This includes figuring out how many people you are going to invite, and how much money you want to spend on food, drinks, decorations, entertainment, and location rental. We endorse the utilization of an online party budget calculator to best assist you.
If the costs look daunting, you should consider sharing your party and expenses with several families. The other families might have overlapping guest lists, which will lower the overall cost.
Let’s take a look at some additional steps.
Choose The Theme And Activities
Some of the most popular graduation party ideas include simple summer barbeques and luaus. Fun activities include creating a photo booth, using school colors, hanging graduation banners, making picture centerpieces, decorating your backyard with lights, a dessert table, graduation lanterns, a places you will go map, and much more.
Graduation party themes can include a smart-cookie party, taco-themed party, black and gold glam theme, tropical graduation theme, sunflower theme, candy theme, college sports team theme, and more.

Send Your Invitations
Your invitations can range from formal to free digital versions. This will depend on the style of your party, of course. Be sure to send graduation announcements and graduation party invitations separately. Include directions to the event.
Additional things that you need to consider include:
- Planning the entertainment – One essential item is a photo booth complete with graduation attire, signs, and props.
- Plan the menu – The theme and the time of the day will determine the menu. We recommend that you create a buffet of food, drinks, and snacks.
- Pick a time – To help combat the increased number of graduation parties that occur in May and June, you should consider delaying the party some. You can combine a summer holiday with a graduation party. Think Memorial Day, Father’s Day, or July 4th.
