Throwing a Graduation Party

Graduation is an exciting time for the graduate, and friends and family alike. It is a time to congratulate and commend the graduate for a job well done. Graduation is a huge milestone in anyone’s life, and should be marked appropriately. A graduation dinner or graduation party is a great way to do so.

Party theme. There are many themes that can be incorporated into a graduation party. If the graduate is heading off to college, the party could be themed around the college colors, letters, and mascot. This goes double for anyone graduating from college as well. The graduation can also be themed around the interests or degree of the graduate. Another great theme that is easy to put together is a diploma theme. The diploma can be incorporated into all party elements like the cake, plates, napkins, and invitations.

Party types. The type of graduation party can depend on several factors. Time of day can play a big part. If it is an afternoon graduation the party can be more casual. If it is an evening graduation, a more formal event is in order.

Invitations. The type of graduation invitation ordered depends on all these factors. Choose an invitation that coordinates with the theme, whether high school or college, special interest, school colors, or the diploma theme. The graduation invitation should also reflect the style of the graduation party. If it is formal, the graduation party invitation should be formal too. If it is a casual gathering, the invitation may be casual.

Any graduate has a lot on his or her plate up to and following the big date. Preparing for college or looking for a job, it is a very important time, and a time in life when everything is about to change. A graduation party is a great way to commemorate a job well done and send good wishes.
