After countless hours of homework, after school activities and fundraisers it is finally time to say, “Congratulations” to your graduating child. If ever there was a reason to celebrate, this is it. The best place to throw an awesome graduation party is the place where it all happened: your home. Here’s how to get it done:
Split the Family and Friends
If you come from a large family, then you’ll want to include them in the graduation party celebration. The same can be said for your kid’s friends. If he has a large squad, then they’ll all want to get in on the fun. A good idea would be to split the party. Have the family over for a late afternoon BBQ and then let the kids come over at night for dancing and hanging out. Everybody wins.
Once you’ve locked down the potential guest list, you’ll know how much food and drinks to set up. You’ll also know how many chairs and tables you might need. If you can’t pull those together from what you have, then consider renting from a party rental place. Even two dozen extra chairs can make a big difference. That same rental place might also be able to provide fountains for drinks, helium tanks for balloons and other party gear you might not even be thinking of.
If the party is going to be small, then you might be able to do the cooking yourself. But will you have the time for all the shopping and actual cooking? An easier approach would be to go through your list of take-out menus. Most of those restaurants probably offer catering services in the form of trays of food cooked up and ready to serve. All you would have to do is put out the plates and forks!
Clear Out Rubbish
The best way to make room for a party is to clear out the rubbish. That rubbish could be anything that is taking up space and not being used. In the backyard, that could be old planters, grills, lawnmowers and patio furniture. If there is leftover construction material from a remodeling project, then that should go, too.
