The day has finally come, Graduation! After four years of all-nighters, rallies, and dances, it’s finally time to walk across the stage and get your diploma! While this day is made to celebrate your graduate and their accomplishments over the past four years, it’s also about celebrating with friends and family. Here are some tips for throwing your graduate a party they will never forget!
Pick Your Party Location
The first step of graduation party planning is picking your party location. Depending on how many guests you plan on inviting, you can throw a backyard bash with your close friends and family, rent out a room at a local restaurant, or even at your Alma Mater!
If you are hosting a backyard party, you’ll want to make sure that you’re guests can escape the heat. The Qwik Top Tents are the perfect size for your backyard or other outdoor venue and will help your guests beat that summer heat. You can add some starry lights for decoration and to light up the night after the sun has gone down!
Beverage Bar → Camelot’s Farmstand Beverage Dispenser is a cute and easy way for guests to grab drinks, and you can fill them with your beverage of choice!
Meal Prep → Whether you’re having the food catered or cooking it yourself, it’s always a good idea to invest in a chafer to keep the food fresh and warm! Camelot has a great selection of warmers and chafers for your grad party needs!
Tables and Seating → After hours of mingling, you’ll definitely need to take a seat! You’ll want to make sure that you have enough tables and seating for your guests so they can sit, socialize, and kick back!
It’s Party Time
Now that you’ve set up for the party, you’re ready to go! It’s a great idea to lay out some games such as corn hole, pin the hat on the graduate, and karaoke to get the party started! Here are some fun ways to celebrate your graduate:
Wish the Grad Luck → Have your guests write their best wishes, advice, and tips on slips of paper and place them in a jar for the graduate to take with them to school. It’s such a sweet send-off!
Snap Some Photos → Create your own photo booth! Send the graduate off with some photos of them and their closest friends and family. Grabs some fun props, goofy glasses, and you’re all set!
