Congrats High School Grad!
April 06, 2011
These days, almost everyone has a high school graduation party, and now it’s your turn! Honor your graduate’s accomplishments by throwing a back yard BBQ.
To make sure your invitation doesn’t get lost in a sea of grad party invites, choose ones that will stand out from the rest. Invitations like the colorful “congratulations graduate” or black and white graduation invites are perfect for your grad’s big party.
For a really special and unique invite, use the golden graduation custom pens. Personalize your pen with up to four different messages; just enough room to let everyone know the who, what, where and when of your party!
Decorations and Supplies
If your graduate is going off to college, decorate your house in the school’s colors with decorations from our graduation colors section.
Let the neighborhood know how proud you are of your graduate by hanging a customizable “congratulations, you did it” banner from your house.
For an outside bash, decorate any outdoor banisters and doorways with graduation gold tinsel garland and graduation poly roll.
Other great ways to decorate outdoors are by hanging graduation lanterns from your trees, lining walkways with luminary bags and dangling graduation party swirls or graduation stringers from your doorways.
We also have a variety of options for decorating indoors if the weather isn’t cooperating on your graduate’s big day. Use the colorful grad decoration kit or the giant graduation decoration kit for a quick and easy décor fix. Complete with swirls, cutouts, stringers and garland, these kits will provide you with almost all of the décor you’ll need!
Items that aren’t included in the kit, but ones you just can’t live without, are: graduation Lumi-Loon balloons, graduate life-size stand ups and grad party door covers.
Graduation parties are usually fairly large, so you’re going to need to set up a lot of tables of food for eating.
Cover your tables with graduation class or graduation cap table covers. For an added touch, place a table runner on top of the cover (available in a variety of colors). If you’re entertaining many guests, invest in the congrats grad paper goods value pack. Each pack comes with 30 plates and 30 napkins. Complete your place settings with graduation cups and fabulous fake silverware.
Adorn your tables with graduation cascade centerpieces, graduation confetti mix and grad cap & diploma balloon weights. Or, as always, we offer a selection of table décor party kits. If a kit better suits your needs, try the graduation time table kit or one of the balloon centerpiece kits.
Hand out graduation cap L.E.D. necklaces and blinkies for guests to wear as the sun goes down. Pass around an autograph graduation cap and have everyone sign it; a perfect keepsake for your graduate. Your grad still has a little bit of time left to act like a child, so hang a smiley face grad piñata from a tree and swat away!
This will surely be a night to remember.
