Planning a graduation party might sound or give you the impression that it will be stressful but in the real world, it is a lot of fun. Whether you will be having a party at home, or your are on the graduation committee at school, we have some interesting graduation party planning ideas to get you started.
Storing Memories in a Scrapbook
Scrapbooks are an amazing way to collect memories for special occasions. Set up a scrapbook area or a booth to which graduates can write comments and well-wishes. If you have a photo booth at your event, the graduates can also add these photos as well as it adds to personal touch and will create priceless memories.
Get the Puns in Your Menu
While everyone loves a good barbecue, it is always a good idea to try something new and imaginative. The menu for your party can have a great opportunity to be as creative as you would want to be as there are unlimited options to choose from. With the idea of puns, they might be cheesy to some but is actually a great way for the grads to have a big bite on the treats.
Offering a Unique Photographic Experience
Cameras from mobile devices and smartphones, as well as photos taken by the official photographer are great options to get the moments captured. By offering photos, you can have everyone decorate their photos with stickers and with colorful pens. Graduates can also either take them home or add them to the scrap book. If you have the space, we highly suggest to rent a photo booth. Photo booth rentals are quickly growing as a trend in the graduation party space as it graduates can instantly print photos, which are an amazing keepsakes, or have them posted and shared on their own social media accounts.
Decorate with School Colors
From fresh flowers, hanging garlands and choosing tablecloths, decorations offer a lot of opportunities to showcase your school colors. When it comes to placing flowers throughout the party, you have options. Pick bouquets that combine schools colors, or choose a single arrangement that has one shade and another with a different shade.
Creating a Social Media Hashtag
Graduation party attendees are most likely to snap photos with their phones and with their mobile devices. You can encourage to share their photos on social media with a unique hashtag. Ideally, the hashtag would have the graduate’s name or the graduation batch. Before you start to use the hashtag, make sure that you are the only one using it. Search the hashtag with search engines (Google) to make sure that it is not already being used.
