Sierra Vista seniors will graduate from Manvel High School on May 25. Your newly minted grad probably has a few ideas about how to celebrate, and you should listen to their input. If you’re planning a party and are stumped for ideas, we can help.
Pick a Theme
Your grad is going to want an Instagram- or TikTok-worthy theme. We think this “One Smart Cookie” idea is very sweet. The Breakfast Club has been enjoying a resurgence with this generation, so why don’t you throw a “Donut You Forget About Me” party? Your sports-minded grad will love this game-time theme. It’s twice the fun if you decorate in their new college team’s colors. Have some fun with a Friends party.
Designate a corner so everyone can get a photo with the new grad. Balloons make a perfect backdrop. You can go with an arch or try this holographic balloon backdrop. Set up a chalkboard and let people design their own backdrop. You can purchase simple sequined backdrops on Amazon. This Polaroid cutoutbackdrop is super cute. Be sure to purchase these photobooth props.
Double Duty Decorations
Send your grad off to college with the advice garnered from this graduation tree centerpiece. Don’t put out a guest book. Have everyone sign this guest poster your grad can have framed. We think you grad will get a lot of use out of this t-shirt. Guests are sure to get creative when asked to post their favorite memories.
Step Up to the Bar
Food bars are perfect for any graduation party. This hot dog bar is easy to create. Popcorn bars aren’t just for movies. No sandwich bar would be complete without these “diploma wraps.” If the weather is a little Texas-warm, cool thing down with this root beer float bar.
Fun and Games
You’re never too old for a party game. Send your grad and friends on a fun graduation-themed scavenger hunt while you get the party started. Find out who knows the honoree best. Everyone will enjoy pinning the tassel on the graduation cap. Gather everyone for a fun game of graduation jeopardy.
What’s a party without favors? Send guests home with these smart cookie favors. Pack up some sweet treats to send home in these graduation cap boxes. Who wouldn’t want to go home with these cotton candy favors? Fill these graduation cap mason jars with candy, pennies or anything you want. Guests will remember your grad has a bright future ahead.
