Pick a Free Weekend

A graduation party probably doesn’t work as a surprise party unless it is just the immediate family. Your graduating student will probably want to invite all their friends. After all, this is as much their celebration as it is your kid’s. That’s why you want to pick a weekend that is free from other parties. Only your kid can provide that information.

Lock Onto a Head Count

You’ll also want to decide if this will be a day party by the pool or a night party in the backyard. Either way, you’ll want to lock onto a head count or get as close as possible to one. Knowing how many people will be coming to the party will determine if you need to rent extra chairs and tables. It will also let you decide on the right amount of food and drinks. Graduation parties tend to grow the closer to the date of the party. Whatever number your kid provides, assume there will probably be 10 to 20 more people who show up at the last minute.

Let the Neighbors Know

Ten people coming over to the house isn’t that big of deal but when you start to get into 30, 40 or 50 people, then you definitely want to alert the neighbors. Things could get a bit congested on the street with parking. If the party is at night, then try to let everyone know they’ll be walking through a neighborhood that doesn’t to join in the party.

Also, with that amount of people you might want to rent a portable toilet for the driveway. Would you want 50 teenagers coming through your house to use the bathroom all night long?

To make room for the party, you might need to clear away some things that are taking up valuable space. In the backyard, this could be planters, kid’s swing set or piles of lumber or metal.
