5 Easy Graduation Party Ideas

Your graduate’s journey culminates with a walk on commencement day– a journey that was one of a kind. Your grad's achievements deserve an equally unique party to celebrate the occasion. These simple graduation party ideas will make the event extra special:

1. Choose a simple theme.

Make your graduate the star of the day with a theme based on the grad's school colors, choosing invitations, tableware and décor in set shades. You may even want to add a touch of the chosen color to any Prints you include in the decorations for a fun tinted effect.

2. Welcome guests with personal flair.

Round up some favorite photos of the graduate and incorporate them into one of our Banners. You can add a message to your design like "The tassel was worth the hassle!" or "Caps off to you!" After the party, the banner can be kept as a special souvenir of the day.

3. Personalize your treats.

Put a customized finishing touch on bottled and canned beverages, packaged candy and bags of snacks with Stickers. You can add a border that complements your color scheme and include the year for a one-of-a-kind design.

4. Skip the cake.

Avoid the time drain of cutting a cake by serving grad cap cupcakes instead. Bake them in cups that match your color scheme. After you've iced them, put a candy on each cupcake. Add a dot of frosting to the center and then stick a chocolate square on top. Finish things off with an icing tassel. Then, arrange the cupcakes on a table alongside a framed photo of the graduate in their cap.

5. Make it a film screening.

With Walgreens Home Movies to DVD Transfer, you can turn precious home movies of the graduate into a DVD that you can show to guests during the party with a projector or right on your television. Order a few copies to give to family members and close friends as mementos.
