Planning A Graduation Party

by Jessica Amey

Graduating is a huge achievement and a big reason to celebrate. After working hard for all those years this is your chance to celebrate with your family and friends. As well as sending out your grad invites and preparing for your graduation day you might also be planning to throw a graduation party.

It’s the perfect excuse for a party but if the idea of organising it overwhelms you then you could always team up with some friends for a joint one.

Here are some things to think about if you are planning to have a graduation party…

Photo Backdrop
Every party needs a photo backdrop these days so that guests can take some photos to remember the occasion, and post on Insta! There are so many DIY backdrop ideas on Pinterest that you don’t need a lot of money or time to make something amazing.

Why not keep it simple with something like a BBQ or buffet? This is also the most cost effective option but if you really don’t want the effort of doing the food yourself and want to opt for caterers then make sure you get something booked early so you don’t run of them already being booked.

If you are keeping the food simple then you could always go a bit extra with the cake. Because in my opinion the cake is the best part! Whether you opt for a giant cake, cupcakes or even something like a donut stack there are lots of options out there for creating something that will stand out. Again if you don’t want to bake it yourself or don’t have a family member who is up for the challenge then you can look at paying someone but remember to book early!

The most important thing about any party is the guests because without them it wouldn’t be much of a party! Which is why invitations for your graduation party are so important and luckily thanks to companies like Basic Invite making your invitations doesn’t have to be a stressful experience.

They are one of the few companies that offer infinite color combinations, with instant online previews. You can also customise every detail on the invitation meaning the it will end up exactly how you want it. You can order a sample too so you know exactly what they look like before having lots printed.

You can even choose from over 40 envelope colours to make it really unique and why not order your grad thank yous at the same time?

Important for any party! Whether using a DJ, hiring a band or just getting some good speakers and making some awesome party playlists, this will really add to the atmosphere.
