Graduation season is upon us. It’s time to reward your child for all of their hard work and effort that they have put in to reach this milestone. Help them celebrate this new chapter in their life by throwing them a party! These cool ideas will be the perfect way to make your party one of a kind!

Table Toppers: Stacking books in the middle of a table makes for a unique graduation centerpiece. Covering them in different colored wrapping paper, or placing vases and candles on top adds an extra special touch.

Cutlery: Wrapping silverware in a white napkin adorned with a satin black bow, will transform your cutlery into a rolled diploma.

Represent Your Colors: Go Big Red! Filling mason jars with M&M’s in your school colors is both an easy way to keep things festive and an inexpensive sweet treat to scatter throughout.

Personalize Your Decor: Graduations are sentimental, so hanging pictures of your child throughout their life is a cute way to share some memories and a great reminder of how far they’ve come.

Help Them Build Memories: A great way to share some advice or build a memory, is by having each guest write a message on a Jenga block for the recent graduate to take home. These “building blocks” can serve as daily motivation or as a constant reminder of their accomplishment.

Say Cheese: Since we live in such a digital world, taking pictures and using social media has become a big part of our daily lives. Creating a simple photo booth backdrop for your party will ensure your guests have a great time, while always having something to remember the day by. Creating a quirky, customized event hashtag like #JeffBrownInACapAndGown makes it easier to view all party pics in one place!
