Doesn’t it seem like only yesterday when you were throwing a toddler birthday party complete with bounce house, balloons and a super hero birthday cake. Now, that same toddler is about to graduate from high school. How did the years go by so fast? Graduation is a major milestone. Whether your kid is headed off to college in another city or will be sticking around home for awhile longer, you still want to celebrate this moment. Here are some good ideas to put into action for your great graduation party.
You have 18 years worth of photos that can be used for decorations for your graduation party. Blow up some of the fun pictures of your grad when they were just a baby and use them for the decorations. You could even find a baker that can put them on the cake. And there’s no reason why you can’t bring back the balloons!
Pick an Easy Menu
You don’t have to impress a bunch of high school kids with your culinary skills. You just have to fill up their stomachs. Hot dogs and hamburgers are easy if you have someone who can operate the grill throughout the night. A few trays of spaghetti with meat sauce is also easy to prepare ahead of time and heat up for the party. You also can’t go wrong by having a taco bar. Finally, the old standby of ordering pizza will work, too. If your kid is going away, then you should try to get all the foods they might miss at their new college town.
If your party is going to be outside, then you don’t want to use the harsh security lights. Instead, break out the holiday lights and string them up around the deck, porch and even in the trees. You might also be able to pick up some inexpensive paper lamps to use for lighting the area.
