It’s time again this year for high schools, colleges, and universities around the nation to be graduating deserving seniors onto a higher level of education or onto the next step in their lives. That in itself is worthy of a party!
So, graduate moms and dads, if you’re worried that you’re not hip enough to throw an amazing gradation party for your senior, don’t worry! Here are the 5 things you need in order to throw the most perfect and memorable graduation party ever!
Answer 3 Important Questions – Before you start doing anything else, ask yourself these three very essential questions – When? Where? How many? You will first need to select a date that will work best with you and also potentially cooperate with your graduate’s friends’ parties. You will also need to figure out how many people will be coming as this will dictate how much food and supplies you will need for the party. Finally, decide on the location of the party. Will it be held in your home or a public space like the local park? Will you rent a hall or take the party poolside? Answering these questions will help you figure out the rest of the party’s details much more easily!
Food and Drink – Sure, you can decide to just serve finger foods and trays and vegetables, fruits, and cheese & crackers to your graduate and guests, but c’mon, how much fun would that be? None! Instead, plan to serve your graduate’s favorite food. Does he or she love Mexican food, Asian food, or good ol’ American cuisine? There’s nothing quite like eating your favorite food during a big celebration with friends! If this sounds too daunting to you, you can always spring for takeout pizza! Don’t forget the cake!
Photos and Cards – There’s nothing wrong with embarrassing your graduate just a little bit! Bring out baby photos of your graduate or photos of past graduations and promotions during his or her years in school. Feel free to decorate with current photos of your graduate with his or her friends, too! Don’t forget to leave a little graduation box for guests to place their cards to your graduate!
The Perfect Playlist – No party is complete without the perfect playlist! Be sure to include your graduate’s favorite musical artists. Just be sure to keep it clean, especially if Grandma will be hanging out with her favorite graduate!
Make It Unique – So what do you do after you eat a great meal, look at all the fun photos, and jam to some fun tunes? Sure, you can just sit there and chat, but that’s no fun for a graduate! Make the party memorable with some fun activities! Get some water balloons ready for a huge water balloon battle outside. Take your graduate and friends go-karting or mini-golfing. Take an outing to the zoo. Whatever you do, just make sure that it’s fun!
