High School Graduation Party Ideas

Congratulations! You probably have all of your attire for graduation day & your party. Because graduation is the start of adulthood for most people, it will be important that you take that theme and bring it over into the event that you are going to be hosting.

Graduation Party Decorations & Favors

Have bright colors and fun decorations for graduation party themes. If you know the school colors for the graduate, get some graduation balloons and decor in those colors. In addition to that, consider some of these graduation party decorations you can use to make this event fun.

To begin with these graduation party ideas, get some graduation cap cutouts and diplomas that you can post on the walls. This is a great way to start working on creating new setups that will keep your guests smiling.

For party favors, make up fake diplomas that announce the person is graduating into the adulthood with honors. It can be a great way to make the party a little more entertaining and offer an item that everyone will remember in the process!


High School Graduation Invitations

High school graduation invitations and college graduation invitations can be a fun way to get word of your party out. What you will want to do is have high quality paper and gold lettering to announce this special event.

When that is done, use some of the typical lingo that can reflect the overall theme. Think about words like “future”, “graduation” and “journey” as being excellent terms to have on the graduation invitations.

When you have that done, use things like diplomas and graduation gowns to help add a little extra something to the graduation party themes you are hosting.


Food and Drinks

When it comes to food, get something that your guests will be able to enjoy on the go. That means you might want to focus on finger foods such as chips, dips, hot wings or similar items.

Cake is going to be an important part of this process as well. While you can go with a typical sheet cake, there are some other alternatives you might want to consider. For example, make a diploma or graduation cap shaped cake. This continues the graduation theme of the event and gives a memorable twist!

Punch is often a good idea for drinks as it is easy to make. It is likely most of your guests will enjoy it. If you want to, add some cans of soda to the mix.

Graduation Party Ideas: Games

Keep your guests active with these graduation party ideas to ensure that they have a great time.

A great starting point for games will be dancing. This can be great for you to entertain your guests and help you spend some fun time with your guests.

A scavenger hunt can also be a fun way for you to have some fun. Think about items that dealt with the time you were in school and incorporate them in the scavenger hunt. Then you can give a variety of retro items that can deal with your youth with these ideas as well.

Another game you can consider is trivia that took place over the time your guests were in school. That can be a great way to look back on the past and to think back about some of the major events that took place in the last 12 years.

Focusing on major news events can be a great way to ensure everyone has a fair shot in this process.

There are going to be other ideas you can come up with to make these party memorable for all those involved.

Just be sure that you take the time to ensure that your event meets the needs of all your guests. Since a person can only graduate from high school one time, it is vital you take your time to work on making this graduation party an event for everyone to remember!
